The First Database Designed for the Cloud
Kuala Lumpur, 22 July 2013 - Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL), the world's No.1 database solution leading IT solution provider, today announced the availability of latest generation of the world’s #1 database, Oracle Database 12c in Malaysia during a media briefing session at Oracle Malaysia’s Mid Valley office this afternoon.
According to Gartner, Oracle remains as No.1 in worldwide Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) software revenue and holds a larger revenue share of 48.3% than four closest competitors combined. Based on the report, Oracle leads next closest competitor revenue share by 29%.
Oracle Database 12c, optimized on SPARC and Intel® Xeon® processors, is a major release for Oracle. It 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 beta program with Oracle’s customers and partners.
“The key challenges that today’s enterprise data center managers facing are the cost, complexity, and inflexibility represented by the large numbers of production databases operating in fixed server configurations and most of which are substantially underutilized. It is in the nature of most enterprise database server software that those databases cannot be moved about or redeployed easily,” said Kaleem.
He further added, “Oracle Database 12c offers an elegant solution to this problem that not only enables deployment flexibility and eases the administration of multiple databases, but does so in a way that requires neither changes to applications nor a steep learning curve for Database Administrators.”
New Multitenant Architecture for Database Consolidation on the Cloud
Multi tenant Oracle Database 12c architecture is able to manage many databases as one and increase server resource utilization, and reduce the time and effort required for database upgrades, backup, recovery, and more.
It addresses the key challenges of customers who are consolidating databases in a private cloud model. And, Oracle Database 12c also includes more security innovations than any other previous Oracle database release; helping customers address evolving threats and stringent data privacy regulations.
“The innovations in Oracle Database 12c were developed with our customers’ cloud requirements very much in mind. It also offers customers other capabilities for cloud computing such as simplified provisioning, cloning and resource prioritization without resorting to major application changes,” ended Kaleem.
