NEW - Features to Simplify Migrations To ADB

1. Database Resident Connection Pool (DRCP)
Using DRCP provides you with access to a connection pool in your ADB that enables a significant reduction in key database resources required to support many client connections. See Use Database Resident Connection Pooling with Autonomous Database for more information.

DOC: ADW click here.
DOC: ATP click here.

 

2. Set MAX_STRING_SIZE value
By default the Autonomous Data Warehouse database uses MAX_STRING_SIZE set to the value EXTENDED. To support migration from older Oracle Databases or applications you can set MAX_STRING_SIZE to the value STANDARD. See Checking and Setting MAX_STRING_SIZE for more information.

DOC: ADW click here.
DOC: ATP click here.

 

3. Number of concurrent statements
The maximum number of concurrent statements is increased. See Predefined Database Service Names for Autonomous Data Warehouse for more information.

    Wonderful to read the first newsletter. Great job in collating a wide range of reading material. These are powerful reads for an Oracle expert. It would be valuable to include at least one article on the basics - how will someone very new to Oracle Autonomous Database get started. Looking forward to the next edition of the newsletter.
