Oracle(R) Database 11g Release 2 Is Now Generally Available

Latest Generation of Database Innovation Delivers Superior Quality of Service at Lower Cost

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/01/09 -- Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL)

News Facts

  • Oracle® Database 11g Release 2 is available and downloadable today from the Oracle Technology Network (OTN).
  • This latest generation of the world's #1 database builds on the innovations introduced in Oracle Database 11g to help organizations deliver better information throughout the enterprise, at a higher quality of service, and at a much lower cost.

Reduce Server Costs Up to 5x by Consolidating onto the Grid

  • In this release, Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) delivers grid plug and play and new server pooling capabilities that enable organizations to reduce their server costs by streamlining the provisioning and management of consolidated database grids.
  • Oracle RAC One Node, a new Database option, is available today. Oracle RAC One Node is a solution that allows customers to more easily consolidate their less mission critical database environments on the grid with most of the redundancy and availability provided by Oracle Real Application Clusters.

Reduce Storage Costs

  • The combination of Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Advanced Compression and Partitioning supports the reduction of storage costs by compressing data as much as 2-4x and simplifying use of lower cost storage tiers.
  • In this release, Oracle Automatic Storage Management is extended to support a general-purpose cluster file system to help customers reduce their storage management costs.

Eliminate Unused Redundancy

  • Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Automatic Storage Management, Oracle Real Application Clusters, and Active Data Guard allow storage and server resources to be used for both fault tolerance and running production workloads, keeping servers and storage from sitting idle waiting for failures.
  • In this release, Edition-based Redefinition is introduced to allow customer database applications to be upgraded online; this removes the need for separate upgrade environments.

Improve Performance for Data Warehouses

  • Oracle Database 11g Release 2, in combination with the Oracle Database Machine, can deliver up to 10x faster query performance.
  • This release also delivers enhanced query performance with the ability to transparently execute a query against data stored in memory across all the servers in a grid.

Raise DBA Productivity Up to 2x

  • Automated self-management capabilities can help to double database administrator productivity over older versions of Oracle Database, and reduce the time required to upgrade from prior releases.

Supporting Quotes

  • "Our customers want features that offer better performance and availability, lower IT costs and ways to deliver better information to their business users," said Andy Mendelsohn, senior vice president of Database Server Technologies, Oracle. "The availability of Release 2 completes the vision of Oracle Database 11g to address today's business and IT challenges, and continues our strategy of helping customers deliver the highest quality of service at lower cost."
  • "As organizations face exponential information growth and complexity throughout the data center, they are seeking to minimize IT costs and increase administrative efficiencies," said Carl Olofson, Research Vice President, IDC. "Oracle Database 11g Release 2 features enhancements to grid computing, storage management and administration capabilities that are designed to help users achieve greater resource utilization of their information management systems while making the related system infrastructure and storage easier to manage and more affordable."
