Coming in October: Database as a Service Online Forum

Thanks to Oracle Database 12c’s new multitenant architecture plus a series of advancements in Oracle Exadata and Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, customers can now mimic providers of public cloud services and deliver database as a service (DBaaS) in a private cloud.

Most enterprises have hundreds of different applications, often running on dedicated stacks of software and hardware from a mix of different vendors. This typically results in high costs, unused capacity, unnecessary complexity, and constrained flexibility.

"Private DBaaS provides a tremendous opportunity to simplify IT by standardizing, consolidating, and automating," says Rex Wang, vice president of technology software product marketing, Oracle. "At the same time, you retain control and visibility over service definition, data security, and quality of service."

On Monday, October 21, 2013, from 9:00 a.m. PT to 12:00 p.m. PT, Oracle will host an online forum, led by Carl Olofson, research vice president, IDC, and Juan Loaiza, senior vice president, Oracle Systems Technology, outlining how organizations can deliver database services. Hear from experts, analysts, customers, and product managers as they discuss the unique characteristics and capabilities in Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c that can help you design, deploy, and deliver DBaaS.
