This is a multi-volume course that covers the major new features of the Oracle 12c database of interest to database and other enterprise administrators.
The single most important new capability introduced with the Oracle 12c release of the database is the multitenant database feature. With this technology, the Oracle database can be a full participant in a cloud computing-based application architecture. Even a traditional on-premise systems architecture can be dynamically and dramatically transformed as a result of this feature. Many traditional and new database features are enhanced or introduced when a multitenant database configuration is used.
Introduced with the Oracle 12c release of the database are many advanced storage administration features. Some of these new features support various forms of in-memory storage, advanced compression and other capabilities targeted for high-performance environments and massive scalability.
The primary target audiences for this textbook are:
- Database administrators
- Storage administrators
- System administrators
- Implementation specialists
- Data center support engineers
In order to fully benefit from this textbook one must have extensive experience working with the Oracle 11g release as a database or other administration specialist.
