Oracle logoNew Delhi, India, July 30, 2013: Oracle India today announced the general availability of Oracle Database 12c, a database designed for the Cloud. The Oracle Database 12c brings to customers a new multitenant architecture that simplifies the process of consolidating databases onto the cloud; enabling customers to manage many databases as one – without having to change their applications. Oracle also announced new database-to-storage system capabilities for customers using Oracle Database 12c with Oracle’s Sun ZFS Storage Appliance and Pillar Axiom storage systems. The new capabilities enable Oracle Database users to optimize database performance, streamline storage configuration and provisioning, and quickly create new development and test environments.

Oracle Database 12c introduces several features, as well as enhancements to existing technologies that enable continuous access to enterprise data. Global Data Services offers load balancing and failover to globally distributed database configurations. Data Guard Far Sync extends zero-data-loss standby protection to any distance – not limited by latency. Application Continuity complements Oracle Real Application Clusters and masks application failures from end-users by automatically replaying failed transactions.

Sheshagiri Anegondi, Vice-President, Technology Business at Oracle India, said, “As organizations embrace the cloud, they seek technologies that will transform business and improve their overall operational agility and effectiveness. Oracle Database 12c is a next-generation database designed to meet these needs, providing a new multitenant architecture on top of a fast, scalable, reliable, and secure database platform. By plugging into the cloud with Oracle Database 12c, customers can improve the quality and performance of applications, save time with maximum availability architecture and storage management and simplify database consolidation by managing hundreds of databases as one.”

Oracle Database 12introduces 500 additional features and is the result of 2,500 person-years of development and 1.2 million hours of testing, plus an extensive beta program with Oracle’s customers and partners. The foundation of Oracle Public Cloud Services, Oracle Database 12can greatly benefit customers deploying private database clouds and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) vendors looking for the power of Oracle Database in a secure multitenant model. Oracle Multitenant works with all Oracle Database features, including Real Application Clusters, Partitioning, Data Guard, Compression, Automatic Storage Management, Real Application Testing, Transparent Data Encryption, Database Vault, and more.

In addition, to help customers efficiently manage more data, lower storage costs and improve database performance, Oracle Database 12c introduces new Automatic Data Optimization features. The new feature, available with Oracle Advanced Compression, automatically balances and optimizes performance with maximum storage footprint reduction using the massive data compression uniquely available on Oracle storage systems with Hybrid Columnar Compression (HCC).

Venkatesh Krishnan, Vice President, Systems Business at Oracle India, said, “Oracle Storage is engineered exclusively with Oracle Database 12c to deliver optimized configuration, simplified management and the fastest performing and most efficient storage systems.  Through this combination, our customers can reap the benefits of software and hardware that is deployed, upgraded, managed and supported together.”

Oracle Database 12c customers can accelerate performance of Oracle Multitenant pluggable databases by using the fastest NAS database performance available from the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance. Oracle Database 12c also introduces Oracle Intelligent Storage Protocol (OISP), which will enable the database to communicate directly with the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance and deliver a 65 percent reduction in administration and provisioning by dynamically and automatically tuning database performance. OISP will allow select future Oracle storage product releases to highly optimize configurations, accelerate provisioning, and auto-tune storage systems for increased performance.
