Networked Oracle > Oracle Net

Oracle Net

Distributing computing power across servers and sharing information across networks greatly enhances the value of the computing resources available. Instead of being a stand-alone server, the server becomes an entry point for intranets, the Internet, and associated websites.

Oracle's networking tool, Oracle Net, can be used to connect to distributed databases. Oracle Net facilitates the sharing of data between databases, even if those databases are on different types of servers running different operating systems and communications protocols. It also allows for client/server applications to be created; the server can then function primarily for database I/O while the application can be fielded to a middle-tier application server. Also, the data presentation requirements of an application can be moved to front-end client machines. In this chapter, you will see how to configure, administer, and tune Oracle Net and the Oracle Net Services.
