Oracle Database 11g Standard Edition: available on single or clustered servers with a maximum capacity of four sockets. Oracle Real Application Clusters included at no additional cost.
Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition: available on single and clustered servers with no socket limitation. Efficient, reliable and secure data management for mission-critical transactional applications, query-intensive data warehouses, and mixed workloads.
Catalyst offers several options to Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition for specific business and IT requirements. Oracle also offers a range of Enterprise Edition Options for more demanding large-scale or mission-critical transaction processing, data warehousing, and other business applications.
Oracle Active Data Guard
Oracle Active Data Guard—an option for Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition—enhances Quality of Service and improves the use of redundant hardware by offloading resource-intensive activities from a production database to one or more synchronized standby databases.
Oracle Advanced Security
Oracle Advanced Security provides transparent data encryption of data stored in the database and network encryption for data traveling across the network. In addition it provides a complete suite of strong authentication services to the Oracle Database.
Oracle Database Vault
Oracle Database Vault controls who, when, and where data and applications can be accessed—protecting your business against the most common security threat: malicious internal users. Enforcing separation of duties, even among administrators, Oracle Database Vault serves as a powerful preventive control to help meet or exceed today's stringent compliance and privacy requirements.
Oracle Label Security
Oracle Label Security adds extensive protection for sensitive information. Multi-level security capabilities protect access to data, right down to individual rows in tables. It addresses the real-world data security and privacy problems faced by government and commercial entities worldwide.
Oracle Real Application Clusters
Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) harnesses the processing power of multiple,
interconnected servers on a cluster and allows access to a single database from multiple servers on a cluster, insulating both applications and database users from server failures—all while providing performance that scales out on-demand and at low cost. Oracle RAC is a vital component of grid computing that allows multiple servers to access a single database at one time.
Oracle RAC One Node
Oracle RAC One Node is the one-node version of Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC). It enables customers to standardize on a single deployment model for all their database needs.
Oracle Real Application Testing
Reduces Testing Effort by up to 60% and Delivers 224% ROI
Oracle Real Application Testing combined with Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition allows businesses to quickly adopt new technologies while eliminating the risks associated with change. It helps you fine tune changes before putting them into production. Agile businesses want to be able to quickly adopt new technologies in order to help them stay ahead of the competition, be it operating systems, servers or software. However, change often introduces a period of instability into mission-critical IT systems. Oracle Database 11g’s Real Application Testing addresses these issues head-on with the introduction of two new solutions, Database Replay and SQL Performance Analyzer.
Database Replay: DBAs and system administrators can test Database upgrades, patches, parameter, schema changes, etc. Configuration changes such as conversion from a single instance to RAC, ASM, etc. Storage, network, interconnect changes Operating system, hardware migrations, patches, upgrades, parameter changes.
SQL Performance Analyzer (SPA): This can predict and prevent SQL execution performance problems caused by environment changes. SQL Performance Analyzer provides a granular view of the impact of environment changes on SQL execution plans and statistics by running the SQL statements serially before and after the changes.
Oracle Secure Backup
With enterprise-class features and Oracle database integration, Oracle Secure Backup, Oracle's new tape backup management software, delivers secure, high performance network tape backup for Oracle databases and file systems.
Data protection is one of the most critical tasks facing IT organizations. Managing data protection of servers spread across data centers and remote offices requires a unified solution that addresses the complexities of distributed environments consisting of both database and file system data. With a highly-scalable client-server architecture, Oracle Secure Backup (OSB) delivers centralized tape backup management for the entire IT environment.
Oracle Database Upgrade
Oracle has made great strides in improving the database upgrade process over the past several releases. Most of the customer only sees the database as backend to their applications. If such is the case then database upgrade is something meaningless that cost time, money and efforts. We need to upgrade our database in various situations.
- There are bugs in your current database version causing outage and/ or business impact.
- Upgrade to new version would improve the business bottom line in terms of cost and performance.
- Support for your current database version is about to end or has already ended.
- Your application provider is pushing you for database upgrade.
- It is essential to have most current security fixes that you only get during premier support period.
- New feature deployment in application which are available in newer version only
- Hardware, storage, application, and other dependencies.
UPGRADING and MIGRATING of Oracle database are not easy tasks. Preparation and documentation are required. Upgrade/migration is always tested first on test database server or development server. Without testing and planning preparation,it is risky to upgrade or migrate Oracle to a newer version.
Oracle Database Patching
Oracle Database Patch Sets deliver fully tested and integrated product fixes. Patch sets only provide bug fixes. They do not include new functionality and they do not require certification on the target system. All of the fixes in the patch set have been tested and are certified to work with each other. They include all of the libraries that have been rebuilt to implement the bug fixes in the set. Because the patch set includes only low impact patches, it does not require you to certify applications or tools against the server.
Oracle Exadata Database Machine
The Oracle Exadata Database Machine is the only database machine that provides extreme performance for both data warehousing and Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) applications, making it the ideal platform for consolidating onto grids or private clouds. It is a complete package of servers, storage, networking, and software that is massively scalable, secure, and redundant. With Oracle Exadata Database Machine, customers can reduce IT costs through consolidation, manage more data on multiple compression tiers, improve performance of all applications, and make better business decisions in real time.
