Oracle is one of the leading DBMS in the world. Created in the late 1970s by Lary Ellison, it quickly became one of the most used and trusted databasdes. Its security scheme and processing power were some of the features that have given it that title. One of the great advantages of Oracle is that it has always been a pioneer in several features for its database, one of the first to think of a model dedicated to WEB in the late 1990s.
Currently the Oracle database is in 11G and 12C versions and is available in four formats:
- Oracle Database Express Edition (11G)
- Oracle Database Standard Edition One (12C)
- Oracle Database Standard Edition (12C)
- Oracle Database Enterprise Edition (12C)
Each version is aimed at a type of public and with different specifications between them. The latest version, 12c, presents a new multirented architecture that facilitates the consolidation of many databases quickly, as well as its managing them as a cloud service. Oracle Database 12c also includes data processing resources in memory that offer a revolutionary analytical performance. Additional database innovations offer new levels of efficiency, performance, security and availability.
Oracle Database 12c comes in three editions to meet the diverse business needs: Enterprise Edition, Standard Edition and Standard Edition One.
