In this article, we will know about Oracle an overview

Features of Oracle Database

The following features are offered by Oracle Database to meet the prerequisites of powerful database management:

Availability

High data availability is a pre-requisite of real-time applications. The configuration of high performing computing environments is performed for providing all-time data availability. Availability of data is seen during planned or unplanned failures and downtimes.

Performance and Scalability

The scalability of the Oracle database is enhanced with the features like Portability and Real Application Clustering. It is needed to control data consistency and concurrency in a multiuser database which is contemplated by Oracle.

Security

Security should always be the topmost concern. There are exclusive mechanisms provided by Oracle to monitor and control data access and usage. You can easily prevent unauthorized access and allow distinct access to the users by implementing authorization and editing user actions.

Backup and Recovery

Its layout is made in such a way that it is completely recoverable from all kinds of failures. If some failure occurs, the recovery of the database needs to be done within no time for high availability. Affected parts of the data are getting recovered, while the unaffected parts of the data are still available.

Conclusion

Many enterprises rely on Oracle Database and software like Oracle E-Business Suite to power their business.

Automations provided by Oracle make it easier to move these workloads to Oracle Cloud.

Oracle has a public cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering – Oracle Cloud Infrastructure – and decades of experience provisioning and running Oracle products. Our hardware choices, staff expertise, and long-honed IT processes are all best-of-breed for managing Oracle workloads, and make Oracle Cloud Infrastructure the best place to host applications like Oracle E-Business Suite.

Migrating your existing Oracle applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure helps you to:

  • Manage solutions and applications – not infrastructure.
  • Focus on your core business, not on IT
  • Improve performance and availability
  • Reduce costs

Several architecture configurations are available to match your current on-premises design. With the Oracle E-Business Suite Lift and Shift capability, moving from on-premises, operational risk has been reduced with improved success on all migrations. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is also very cost-effective for rapid deployment and removal of test and Quality Assurance environments.
