Oracle 12c: Making the Impossible, Possible?

Pythian’s Oracle team has had the opportunity over this last year to explore, test, and assess every aspect of Oracle’s latest database release: Oracle 12c. And we have to say, it’s very impressive.

Oracle 12c is by far the most important Oracle release in the last 10 years. Its advanced capabilities promote better performance, increased scalability, and easier data management. For the enterprise, this translates into significant cost savings, reduced risk, and increased flexibility.

We put together a list of what we think are the Top 5 Reasons to Upgrade to Oracle 12c.

Has Oracle 12c already been released?!
Or, if not, do you know of any release date for 12c?

Kind regards, Sander Wendel.

Editioning – For many applications (including eBusiness Suite) editioning will remove the many hours spent waiting on plsql load/compilation.


Hi Brian, Did you mean EBR?

I think will be a while before 12c will be used in production in the projects I work. But of course it will be great meanwhile to explore. Posts like these and from the Oracle Communities as on twitter really make all the difference for an early adoption. Thank you for sharing !


Believe 12C will give a boost to In-house Cloud DBs. PDB will make this possible.
Performance benchmarking of predictive as well as reactive nature will become more important.
Interesting times I guess. (and here I thought 11GR2 will last forever)
