Oracle Information Lifecycle Management

Oracle Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) is a set of automated solutions that work with Oracle Database 11g to enable you to use multi-tier storage to dramatically lower the cost of storing application data. Oracle Partitioning seamlessly moves data to the appropriate storage tier based on its activity level. Oracle Advanced Compression works across all storage tiers to reduce the amount of disk space data requires. Oracle ILM brings these automated solutions together to streamline data management, improve performance for mission-critical systems, and greatly reduce the cost of storage.


  • Works at the database level with no application changes
  • Reduces disk space requirements for all types of data
  • Automates the movement of data to lower cost storage based on activity patterns
  • Lowers query times by keeping only active data on high performance storage
  • Increases availability to critical information on the most reliable storage
