Sitting in the Yerba Buena Garden, listening to Andy Mendelsohn talking about Oracle Database 12c.
Here my staccato notes:
Container databases to include multiple Databases as we know them (before 12c) to do database consolidation.
Demoing Pluggable Databases
As to be expected the demo runs in an EM12c console.
Resource Management now realy comes true.
Simplify Patching and Upgrades
Apply changes once, all pluggable Databases updated
Backup Databases as one, Recover at Pluggable Databases
Fast flexible copy and snapshot of pluggable databases, cloning databases for test, development etc.
Perfect for SaaS
New architecture for consolidating databases on Clouds
Sounds like a great improvement and should be released soon!
