Oracle multitenant options – doing more with less

By Paul Wood, Senior Account Manager

Business Services organisations are used to doing more with less, especially in the current age of austerity.  But when the pressures of modern business affects the management of their own Oracle Database estate and the costs associated with it, how well do they cope?

This is something I see a lot of companies struggle with and given the costs and resourcing involved in managing a database, it’s not surprising.  Business Services organisations looking to enhance their Database Estate whilst retaining value for money would be well advised to consider moving to a multitenant option such as Oracle Enterprise Edition Database or Oracle Database 12c – it’s what doing more with less is all about!

Oracle multitenant enables simplified consolidation of your databases that requires no changes to your applications. With this new architecture, a multitenant container database can hold many pluggable databases. This means your organisation can consolidate numerous databases within one centralised database, leading to unified patching, provisioning, upgrading and management – all with considerable cost savings through reduced reliance on resourcing.

The multitenant option also compliments other Oracle Enterprise Edition DB options – RAC and Active Dataguard – both fully available within a multitenant environment. This means the Enterprise Options are in a fully supported and compliant configuration whilst both sets of software are tuned and configured to work within a multitenant environment.  The multitenant option is furthermore, Cloud pluggable and ready for all of the Oracle Cloud offerings. This means it makes for an easy transition into the Cloud using this option, when your organisation is ready.

The speed of set up is another plus point for the multitenant option – now taking seconds as opposed to hours. Patching is also less time consuming due to only having to patch one single database rather than numerous ones which has up until recently been the case.

To summarise, the benefits of using the multitenant option of Enterprise Edition Database are overall cost savings across the hardware tier, support and management of the Oracle estate, time to recover databases and also cloning – a smart choice for any business organisation looking to make efficiency savings and remain competitive in today’s market.
