Oracle Database 11g New Product Features: Summary

The Oracle database continues to evolve with key outstanding features that will provide a high return on investment immediately out of the box with the new features in Oracle Database 11g. Every database vendor offers a database that offers specific benefits. What I have always liked about Oracle, is the Oracle Database Server has by far more feature functionality than any other vendor. This offers the DBA an extremely rich set of tools to solve complex problems in today's environments. In Oracle Database 11g, Oracle takes a very large leap in innovation and feature functionality.

Key features that everyone will be interested in include:
  • Awesome change ensurance features with Database Replay and SQL Replay.
  • Secure Files (next generation LOBs). Significantly faster than LOBs with more flexbility.
  • SQL Plan Management.
  • Java, XML DB, PL/SQL, APEX and PHP add a lot of performance and feature enhancements.
  • Excellent enhancements in compression and encryption across the board.
  • Very nice enhancements to partitioning, including automatic partitioning. New Partition Advisor.
  • Read only tables, Virtual columns and invisible indexes
  • Upgrade and downgrade enhancements.
  • Solid enhancements in RMAN, RAC, Data Guard and Data Pump
  • Automatic Diagnostic Repository.
  • ASM enhancements include Fast Mirror Resyncs, rolling upgrades, new SYSASM role and migrations to ASM.
  • Enhancements to temporary tablespaces.
  • Read only tables.

    The Trubix Blog is focused on discussions on strategic directions in database technology and the challenges Oracle technologists are addressing today and in the future. This site will focus on issues and challenges of database management that cannot be resolved with a code snippet. There are already a lot of great websites out there with tons of code samples. We would like to facilitate more discussions on issues Oracle technologists are dealing with today that a quick search on the Internet cannot solve. There will also be a group of recognized industry leaders that will also participate in this blog. This blog is an extension of the Tim Tam Group, an international group of industry leaders that meet once a year to discuss strategic directions in the industry.
