Oracle announces availability of Oracle Database 12c

Oracle announced the availability of the next-generation Oracle Database 12c database, designed to improve overall operational agility and effectiveness of businesses. The oracle database 12c provides 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.

"The innovations in Oracle Database 12c were developed with our customers' cloud requirements very much in mind," said Andrew Mendelsohn, senior vice President, Database Server Technologies, Oracle. "The new multitenant architecture makes it easier for customers to consolidate their databases and securely manage many as one. It also offers customers other capabilities for cloud computing such as simplified provisioning, cloning and resource prioritization without resorting to major application changes."

Available for download from Oracle Technology Networl (OTN), the oracle database12c addresses the key challenges of customers who are consolidating databases in a private cloud model by enabling greatly improved efficiency and lower management costs, while retaining the autonomy of separate databases. Application continuity complements Oracle Real Application Clusters and masks application failures from end-users by automatically replaying failed transactions.

The foundation of Oracle Public Cloud Services, Oracle Database 12c can 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 Database 12c includes more security innovations than any other previous Oracle database release; helping customers address evolving threats and stringent data privacy regulations. New redaction capabilities allow organizations to protect sensitive data such as credit card numbers displayed in applications - without changes to most applications. Sensitive data is redacted at run-time based on pre-defined policies and account session information. Oracle Database 12c also includes new Run-Time Privilege Analysis, enabling organizations to identify privileges and roles actually being used, helping revoke unnecessary privileges and enforce least privileges with confidence that business operations will not be disrupted.

Oracle Database 12c, optimized on SPARC and Intel(r) Xeon(r) processors, introduces 500 additional features and is the result of 2,500 person-years of development and 1.2 million hours of testing, plus an extensive deta program with Oracle's customers and partners.

Oracle Multitenant is a new feature of Oracle Database 12c, and allows each database plugged into the new multitenant architecture to look and feel like a standard Oracle Database to application; so existing applications can run unchanged. The multitenant architecture provides virtually instantaneous provisioning and cloning of databases, which makes it an ideal platform for database test and development clouds. By supporting multi-tenancy in the database tier, rather than the application tier, Oracle Multitenant makes all ISV applications that run on the Oracle Database ready for SaaS. Oracle Multitenant works with all Oracle Database features.

Oracle Database 12c is also co-engineered with Oracle's world record setting SPARC T5 servers.
