Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) Reaches New Heights of Efficiency

Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) Reaches New Heights of Efficiency
Em , ,

For newcomers to corporate IT, life before virtualization is hard to imagine. Ask any grizzled data center veteran about the old days, though, and that person will tell you all about the time, effort, and money he or she once spent standing up new servers.

Today, of course, provisioning servers can be as easy as launching new virtual machines. Yet for all the advantages virtualization can offer elsewhere in the stack, database professionals young and old alike know all too well that it does nothing to make provisioning, operating, and administering databases any less expensive, hands-on, or time-consuming than it’s always been.

Or at least that was the case until recently. Now, however, a built-in option for Oracle Database 12c called Oracle Multitenant is empowering businesses to build a new class of in-house database-as-a-service (DBaaS) solutions that turn setting up and managing databases into a truly point-and-click affair. Especially when used in combination with Oracle server hardware and management software, Oracle Multitenant finally makes consolidating databases as easy as consolidating servers. That seemingly simple yet long overdue breakthrough, it turns out, has radical implications for corporate agility, competiveness, and profitability.
