Oracle Database Cloud (DBaaS) Performance Consistency – Part 7

This part of the series is supposed to cover the results of I/O related tests performed on the Amazon RDS Oracle cloud instance.
As mentioned in the previous part of this series I've only used the "General Purpose SSD" storage type since the "Provisioned IOPS" storage was simply to expensive to me and it wasn't possible to get a trial license for that storage type.

Now one key aspect of the "General Purpose SSD" storage (more...)

Approximate Aggregate Transformation (AAT)

There are situations where approximate results are superior than exact results. Typically, this is the case when two conditions are met. First, when the time and/or resources needed to produce exact results are much higher than for approximate results. Second, when approximate results are good enough. Approximate results are for example superior in case of exploratory queries or when results are displayed in a visual manner that doesn’t convey small differences.

Version 12.1.0. (more...)

Oracle Database Cloud (DBaaS) Performance Consistency – Part 6

In the next parts of this series I'll have a look at the results of similar performance consistency tests performed on a comparable Amazon RDS Oracle cloud database instance.

Let's start with the configuration used, which was an Amazon RDS "db.m4.2xlarge" instance - the latest RDS generation available at time of testing. This is an 8 VCPUs resp. Hyper Threads / 4 cores configuration with 32GB of RAM.
As storage I've used (more...)

Oracle Database Cloud (DBaaS) Performance Consistency – Part 5

This is the fifth part of this installment, and before coming to comparisons to other cloud providers, in this part I show the results of the read-only test that I've already described in part three of this series, but repeated at a later point in time. The test setup was identical and can be checked in the mentioned previous part.

The reason for running the test again was the fact that I was informed during (more...)

Oracle Database Cloud (DBaaS) Performance Consistency – Part 4

This is the fourth part of this installment, comparing the performance consistency of the DBaaS cloud offering with a dedicated physical host. This time the previous read-only test was modified to be a 100% update read-write test. So every row read was updated in the following way:

    for rec in (
          select /*+

Oracle Database Cloud (DBaaS) Performance Consistency – Part 3

This is the third part of this installment, comparing the performance consistency of the DBaaS cloud offering with a dedicated physical host. This time instead of burning CPU using logical I/O only (see part 2) the test harness executes a SQL statement that has to perform physical I/O mostly, and to be more precise this round is a read-only test, so doesn't include any modification to data (except the logging and any other background (more...)

Microsites: Interact with DCS using the ipad app

| Apr 5, 2016
You can use the Oracle Documents ipad app to interact with the Documents Cloud Service. Go to the app store and search for ‘Oracle Documents’, you will find the Oracle Douments application, get and install the app to your ipad.

The app would like to send you notifications, after that you will also have to accept the License Agreement.

When the app starts up, you will get a quick tutorial to tell you the basics (more...)

Database Schema as a Service – Oracle Cloud

Cloud computing is known for many things: cost effectiveness, flexibility, scalability.

Oracle Cloud provides several Oracle Database offerings. Choose between a single schema based service, or a virtual machine with a fully configured running Oracle Database Instance, or Exadata Service with all the database features, options, and workloads.
Oracle Cloud Provide Database schema Service as: 
  • 1 Schema on Oracle Database 11g
I don't know, can we request on Oracle Database 12c Release 1. But I (more...)
