Quick Guide to In-Depth Information About Oracle Database 12c

The newly launched Oracle Database 12c is generating a lot of excitement, for its innovative new multitenant architecture, which is already helping customers standardize, consolidate, and automate database services on the cloud.

Database consolidation is a key step in the journey to the cloud. Oracle Database 12c makes the process far faster and simpler, enabling the high density of schema-based consolidation—without requiring changes to existing applications.

“These pluggable databases are vastly more efficient than traditional databases. We use much less hardware, and run five times as many databases—six times less hardware, five times more scalable,” says Oracle Chief Executive Officer Larry Ellison.

Here’s a brief guide to the resources, from white papers to webcasts, for wide-ranging and in-depth insight into Oracle’s latest groundbreaking technology.
