Deep Dive: Explore Oracle Multitenant at Oracle OpenWorld

Oracle Multitenant, the new architecture option available with Oracle Database 12c, represents a powerful advancement in database technology. With this new architecture, a multitenant container database can hold many pluggable databases, dramatically simplifying consolidation and cloud computing without requiring changes to your applications.

Oracle Multitenant will be a major focus at Oracle OpenWorld 2013, which takes place in San Francisco, September 22 to 26. Read on to see a list of sessions devoted to multitenancy, from the story of its creation to practical, hands-on experience with provisioning, cloning, and deploying a new database.

You can also find additional information on the Oracle Multitenant resource pages, including a data sheet (PDF), white paper (PDF), blogs, podcasts, and more.
