Use Cases

From Database Consolidation to Hyper Fast OLTP, Oracle Cloud Databases are engineered to deliver extreme performance, mission critical availability, and the utmost in security.

Database Consolidation

Patch drift, data sprawl, and wasted hardware are just a few of the consequences of managing multiple databases spread across data centers or clouds. Reign in the sprawl by consolidating disparate database instances onto a single Database System or run mixed workloads on Exadata Cloud Service. Using built-in Resource Management tools, dictate which databases are allowed to use resources, including Memory, CPU, and query priority on the Exadata Storage Cells. Consolidate even further with the Multi-Tenancy option.

Mission Critical Applications

Zero downtime, high availability, redundancy, and data protection are just some of the mission critical features needed in a cloud infrastructure. Exadata Cloud Service comes pre-integrated with Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) best practices for Database High Availability (HA) with technologies such as Real Application Clusters, Automatic Storage Management, Recovery Manager, Flashback Database, and Data Guard. Further, Exadata-specific HA capabilities such as instant detection of compute and storage server failures, redundant hardware components, and three-way storage mirroring significantly enhance availability.

Disaster Recovery

Automatically backup your database to the cloud with a single click; fully encrypted. Seamlessly create a Data Guard instance providing a transactional alike database to fail over to in the event of a disaster. Leverage Oracle Cloud as a disaster recovery site for your on-premises Oracle Databases via secure networking that extends your intranet into a private Virtual Cloud Network.

In-Memory Analytics

Database Cloud Services employ the In-Memory Database option for hyper-fast, on-demand queries and analytics. Combine this with the Exadata Cloud Service and leverage terabytes of flash cache and the Exadata Storage Servers for sub-second reporting and analytics; all without a single change to your applications or analytics software.
