Oracle Introduces Oracle Database 10g - The First Database Designed to Power Enterprise Grids

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From Oracle Corp.]

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Sep. 8, 2003 - (http://www.oracle.com/tellmemore/?2287166) Oracle Corp. (NASDAQ: ORCL), the world's largest enterprise software company, today announced Oracle(r) Database 10g, new software designed to help customers and partners achieve the highest levels of efficiency from their Information Technology (IT) investments, including hardware, software and, most importantly, labor. Oracle Database 10g relieves IT professionals from time-consuming, repetitive administrative work enabling them to focus more on solving business problems. Oracle today also announced Oracle Application Server 10g and Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g (see separate press releases). Together, they comprise Oracle Grid Computing, the first integrated grid infrastructure software introduced to the market.

"While IT systems have become more strategic and integral to the core business, they also have become more complex, and more difficult and costly to manage," said Carl Olofson, program director for information and data management software research at IDC. "Oracle Database 10g represents a great stride forward, introducing new self-managing features that help automate statistics collection, instance tuning, memory tuning, and more. Helping customers automate daily, routine administrative tasks greatly reduces the management burden, and that can translate into substantial cost savings and more effective database administration."

Automatic Management and Database Control Enterprise grid computing will help customers quickly and inexpensively build large-scale computing capacity from inexpensive, standardized components such as clusters of server blades and rack-mounted storage. New levels of management automation are required to make this feasible. To meet these new requirements, Oracle Database 10g introduces advanced self-management capabilities and a new Web-based console called Database Control.

Based on Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g, Database Control provides a graphical diagnostic window into the database as it operates. Administrators can proactively monitor the database and quickly receive alerts and advice to ensure optimal performance and reliability. Database Control can even identify poorly written application code, suggest better code and automatically tune the database to provide optimal performance.
