Database Manageability and Real Application Testing
Oracle Database 12c is the next generation self-managing database that helps businesses lower their IT operational costs while providing maximum performance and availability. This self-managing database automatically monitors, diagnoses and tunes itself. The Oracle Database 12c manageability features allow DBAs to become more productive, and helps their organizations reduce management costs and scale to manage the Enterprise Computing Grid.
Upgrading to Oracle Database 12c is faster and easier than ever before. The database upgrade process has been streamlined over the past several releases and the development effort required to upgrade, test, and verify an application has been greatly reduced. For more information on the right planning, preparation, and upgrade steps, please go to the Oracle Database Upgrade page on OTN.
Real Application Testing
System changes, such as hardware and software upgrades, configuration changes, etc., are essential for businesses to maintain their competitive edge as well as for compliance and security purposes. Oracle Real Application Testing helps you fully assess the effect of such system changes on real-world applications in test environments before deploying the change in production. Oracle Real Application Testing consists of two features, Database Replay and SQL Performance Analyzer. Together they enable enterprises to rapidly adopt new technologies that add value to the business while minimizing risk.
Some of the features referenced below are part of separately licensed Diagnostic Pack, Tuning Pack and Real Application Testing Option. Please refer to the Oracle Database Licensing Documentation for more details.
