Oracle Database 12c Gears Up for the Cloud

By Sean Michael Kerner

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has been talking about his company's next-generation database since last year.

Ellison first talked about the Oracle Database 12c during his OpenWorld keynote in 2012, promising a new era of database multi-tenancy.

That era is now likely a step closer to production reality.

"The 12c is a multi-tenant database," Ellison said this week during his company's fourth quarter fiscal 2013 earnings call. "12c stands for the cloud, it’s the first time a database converts multi-tenancy to the applications that run on the database."

Ellison said that next week, Oracle will be announcing technology partnerships with the biggest SaaS and infrastructure companies in the cloud around the Oracle 12c database. Those companies will include Salesforce.com, NetSuite and Microsoft.

"These partnerships in the cloud I think will reshape the cloud and reshape the perception of Oracle technology in the cloud," Ellison said. "12c, in other words, is the most important technology we’ve ever developed for this new generation of cloud security."

Ellison expects that Oracle Database 12c will be adopted by cloud customers as well as corporate customers as they build private clouds inside their firewall.

"It's huge and we think that another advantage that we offer is the clouds that our customers are going to run internally made up of Oracle and Java is the same cloud that we offer in our public cloud," Ellison said. "So they can build applications and move them back and forth."

12.1 C

In addition to the traditional database, Oracle President Mark Hurd said that Oracle has an in-memory database development in the works as well.

"12.1c is an in-memory database and it is designed to work exceedingly well with our M-Series machines again, which have more memory by the way than any other computer on the planet Earth," Hurd said.

The M series SPARC machines can have up to 32 terabytes of DRAM and Hurd said those machines were designed in concert with the next version of the Oracle database.
