Oracle Database 12c increases the quality of service and saves you time, offering maximum availability architecture, storage management and simplified management.
Enroll in Oracle Database 12c training and learn how to embrace the Cloud with a fast, scalable, reliable and secure database platform. Important new features in this release include:
Oracle Multitenant, offering a new database consolidation architecture in which multiple Pluggable Databases (PDBs) are consolidated within a Container Database (CDB).
This allows the PDBs to share the memory and background processes of a common CDB, while keeping many of the separate aspects of single databases.
Oracle Database In-Memory, where data can now be populated into memory both in a row format (the buffer cache) and a new in-memory optimized columnar format (the column store), simultaneously.
The Oracle Optimizer automatically routes analytic queries to the column format and OLTP operations to the row format.
Sharding allows you to horizontally partition (shard) a very large database across a group of individual databases called shards (up to 1000 shards are supported). Each shard runs on its own server and storage, which removes the necessity to have shared storage.
There are many additional new features in this release of the database.
