1 Oracle Database 10g New Features (DBA and Developer)

CHAPTER 1
Oracle Database 10g New Features (DBA and Developer)

First, I want to note that this book is primarily focused on helping beginner and intermediate Oracle professionals understand and better tune Oracle systems. Many expert topics are also covered in the later chapters, but the objective is primarily to assist professionals who are frustrated and looking for simple tips to help improve performance. This book has one simple goal: to provide an arsenal of tips you can use in various situations to make your system faster.

In the Oracle Database 10g, Oracle introduces the concept of "grid computing." A logical extension of Oracle's Real Application Clusters technology, the grid database will theoretically be able to dynamically "requisition" resources from the pool (the grid) to meet levels of peak demand. When grid computing is fully implemented, these grid resources (grids of servers) can exist on different types of hardware and operating systems, a fully heterogeneous environment. Prior versions required that the system be sized appropriately from the beginning to support peak loads. Oracle is taking its first steps toward implementing this grand plan with version 10g.
