[PDL Visit Day 2016] Thomas Baby (Oracle)
The IT industry today is undergoing a revolutionary change in how customers deploy and configure their compute resources. Driven by the demand to reduce costs, both in capital and operation expense, these customers are turning to CLOUD or HYBRID-CLOUD solutions. These customers span the spectrum from very small startup businesses to Fortune 500 companies across regions and industries. Oracle Corporation leverages innovative engineering to respond to that demand as both provider and consumer of cloud technology by providing highly secure, highly scalable cloud solutions. In this talk, we will describe innovations in database architecture that ease cloud provisioning of database resources at scale, achieve consolidation density while preserving compute isolation, and a management interface for course grained ‘manage many as one’ database operations.
