Oracle 10g was release in January 2004 and was designed specifically for enterprise grid computing. The new features incorporated into Oracle 10g make it quite a cost effective and user friendly product. Furthermore, it is a scalable tool that can grow as the functionality of the application changes.

The term grid computing is used to describe a situation in which numerous computers are used to solve a problem. The calculations typically involve a substantially large amount of data. Instead of focusing on communication among devices, grid computing harnesses the unused processing cycles of all the computers in a network to solve problems too intensive for a stand-alone machine.

The use of grid computing technology has given Oracle 10g a reputation for processing transactions at a very high rate of speed. In addition, it also has some highly reliable security features such as data encryption, which works to keep sensitive information well protected. Plus it includes a dependable disk back up system that allows users to easily recover data from backup tapes.

Self Maintaining

Oracle 10 is virtually a self maintaining database. The software comes pre-equipped with a lot of automated capabilities, which significantly reduces the amount of time manually spent attending to the database. This includes tasks such as automatic statistics collection, performance diagnosis and SQL tuning. It also has a feature that makes it simple for database administrators to create web-based applications.
