Database In-Memory is one of a number of options that can be deployed to address Oracle E-Business Suite performance concerns and scalability requirements without the need for any application changes.
We are pleased to announce the publication of a new white paper that can help with this (including links to patches that you will need to apply):
The paper starts by providing strategic advice and guidelines that help you decide which objects to populate into Database In-Memory (DBIM), and how to size the In-Memory Column Store (IMCS). It provides a list of best practices and explains the complexities and limitations of using DISTRIBUTE/DUPLICATE with Oracle RAC.
The examples in this paper take a step away from the classic headline feature of analytical reports that you might have been expecting. Instead, they show how DBIM can be applied to three novel use cases:
One of the key aspects in the paper is describing how to use Oracle E-Business Suite Application Affinity with Oracle RAC. It describes how to overcome some of the limitations of Non-Engineered Systems (commodity hardware), and explains how it can also be used to benefit Oracle Engineered Systems.
The Oracle Database In-Memory blog contains a wealth of generic information, technical details, ideas and news on Oracle Database In-Memory from the author of the Oracle White Paper on Oracle Database In-Memory.
