Oracle launches Database 11g

Oracle has launched Oracle Database 11g, the next version of its main database platform.

Oracle says a number of major customers have successfully completed the Oracle Database 11g beta programme to test out the enhancements to the platform. 

The firms, which included Colgate-Palmolive, Fidelity National Information Services, PB (Parsons Brinckerhoff), and several members of the US Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG), tested out the promised improved management, performance, scalability and security for themselves.

Ari Kaplan, president of IOUG, said, “This latest product launch is based on strategic input from many IOUG members. We believe that this latest Oracle product will be successfully used by our community of enterprise customers.”

Arthur Fleiss, IT architect at Colgate-Palmolive, said, “Three new features in Oracle Database 11g that really jump out are Automatic SQL Tuning, Partition Advisors, and Real Application Testing.

“These three things alone are reason enough to upgrade. They improve the reliability and performance of the database, yet do not take loads of the database administrator’s time to implement.”
