Oracle Database 12c Product Family
Introduction
Oracle Database 12c is available in a variety of editions tailored to fit different sizes of
organizations, and several Enterprise Edition only options are available for specific business
and IT requirements. This paper outlines the features available with each edition of Oracle
Database 12c, and the options available for Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition.
•
Oracle Database 12c Standard Edition One (SE1) delivers unprecedented ease-of-use,
power, and price/performance for workgroup, departmental, and web applications on single
servers with a maximum of 2 sockets.
•
Oracle Database 12c Standard Edition (SE) is available on single or clustered servers with a
maximum capacity of four sockets in total. It includes Oracle Real Application Clusters as a
standard feature at no additional cost.
•
Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition (EE) is available on single and clustered servers
with no socket limitation. It provides efficient, reliable and secure data management for
mission-critical transactional applications, query-intensive data warehouses, and mixed
workloads.
Oracle Database 12c introduces a new architecture featuring Oracle Multitenant that simplifies
the process of consolidating databases onto the cloud. It delivers all the benefits of managing
many databases as one, yet retains the data isolation and resource prioritization of separate
database.
All editions of Oracle Database 12c are built using the same code base and are completely
compatible with each other. Oracle Database 12c is available on a choice of operating systems
and includes a common set of application development tools and programming interfaces.
Customers can start out with Standard Edition One, and as business grows or depending on
changing requirements, easily upgrade to Standard Edition or Enterprise Edition. It's simple to
upgrade -- just install the next edition’s software -- you make *no* changes to your database or
applications, and get the performance, scalability, reliability, and security for which Oracle is
renowned in an easily managed environment.

Oracle Database 12c Product Family
As a longtime Oracle Database user, I'm excited about Oracle Database 12c's Oracle Multitenant. This important new feature
will allow users to create a container database and simply plug in multiple databases driving down cost of ownership while
simultaneously increasing productivity.
Daniel A. Morgan, Oracle ACE Director
Enterprise Edition Options
Each edition of Oracle Database 12c has a common set features and functionality to meet the varying
requirements of today’s business applications. Additionally, Oracle offers a range of Enterprise Edition
Options for more demanding large-scale, cloud-computing, mission-critical transaction processing, big
data, and other business applications.
Oracle Active Data Guard
Oracle Active Data Guard enables read-only access to a physical standby database for queries, sorting,
reporting, web-based access, etc., while continuously applying changes received from the production
database. Oracle Active Data Guard 12c includes Global Data Services, Far Sync, Fast Sync, Real-time
cascading, and DML on Global Temporary Tables. In addition, Oracle Active Data Guard can enable a
standby database to be opened and used for testing purposes and then quickly reverted back to a viable
standby for disaster recovery. No changes to the production database are lost during testing. Oracle
Active Data Guard also enables the use of fast incremental backups when offloading backups to a
standby database, and can provide additional benefits of high availability and disaster protection against
planned or unplanned outages at the production site.
Advanced Analytics
Oracle Advanced Analytics empowers data and business analysts to extract knowledge, discover new
insights and make predictions—working directly with large data volumes in the Oracle Database.
Oracle Advanced Analytics provides a comprehensive advanced analytics platform through a
combination of powerful in-database algorithms and open source R algorithms. Analytic capabilities
are accessible via SQL and R languages, and through the SQL Developer extension or open-source R
clients. Together, these features enhance the database with a comprehensive range of analytical
functionality for data mining, text mining and predictive analytics, summary and descriptive statistics,
exploratory data analysis and graphics, comparative statistics, correlations, univariate and multivariate
statistics, and advanced numerical computations.
Oracle Advanced Compression
Oracle Advanced Compression—with Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition—helps you manage
your growing amounts of data (that on average are tripling every couple of years) in a cost effective
manner. The new Heat Map feature tracks access to tables, partitions, and individual blocks to provide
deep insight into how your data is accessed by applications and end users. The new Automatic Data
2
Oracle Database 12c Product Family
Optimization feature uses simple policies you create that trigger automatic movement of tables,
partitions, and entire table spaces that allow you to determine the level of compression over time.
Oracle Advanced Compression compresses any type of data, including structured and unstructured
data such as documents, images, and multimedia, as well as network traffic and data in the process of
being backed up. As a result, Oracle Advanced Compression and Information Life Cycle Management
(ILM) capabilities help you use resources more efficiently and lower storage costs.
Oracle Advanced Security
Oracle Advanced Security helps you protect sensitive information and comply with various privacy and
compliance regulations including breach notification laws and the Payment Card Industry Data
Security Standard (PCI-DSS) by enabling encryption inside the database that is transparent to
applications and enabling redaction of sensitive data before it leaves the database.
Oracle Advanced Security provides two primary security features: Transparent Data Encryption and
Data Redaction. Data Redaction is new in Oracle Advanced Security with the release of Oracle
Database 12c and provides the ability to redact sensitive information such as credit card data and social
security numbers before the information leaves the database and is displayed by applications.
Transparent Data Encryption provides encryption of data stored in the database, exported from the
database using DataPump, or disk-based backups using Oracle RMAN.
Oracle Database Vault
Oracle Database Vault helps organizations increase the security of existing applications and address
regulatory mandates that call for separation-of-duties, least privilege and other preventive controls to
ensure data integrity and data privacy. Oracle Database Vault proactively protects application data
stored in the Oracle database from being accessed by privileged database users. Oracle Database Vault
lets you control who, when, and where the database and application data can be accessed—helping
protect your business against the most common security threats that target privileged user accounts or
attempt to bypass applications. Enforcing separation of duties, even among administrators, Oracle
Database Vault additionally serves as a powerful preventive control to help comply with today's
stringent compliance and privacy requirements.
Oracle In-Memory Database Cache
Oracle In-Memory Database Cache enables you to improve application transaction response times and
throughput by caching performance-critical subsets of an Oracle Database in the application tier. The
Oracle In-Memory Database Cache (IMDB Cache) option of Oracle Database 12c caches and
processes data in the memory of the applications themselves; off-loading the data processing to middle
tier resources. With Oracle Database 12c, the ability to transparently deploy IMDB Cache with existing
Oracle applications becomes much easier – with common data types, SQL and PL/SQL support, and
native support for the Oracle Call Interface (OCI).

Oracle Database 12c Product Family
Oracle Label Security
Oracle Label Security adds extensive protection for sensitive information. This option employs labeling
concepts used by government, defense, and commercial organizations to protect sensitive information
and provide data separation. It delivers multilevel security capabilities to protect access to data right
down to individual rows in tables and addresses the real world data security and privacy problems
faced by government and commercial entities worldwide. Oracle Label Security can be combined with
Virtual Private Database, Secure Application Roles, and Oracle Database Vault to provide powerful
solutions for protecting personally identifiable information.
Oracle Multitenant
Oracle Multitenant – an option of Enterprise Edition – a new architecture in Oracle Database 12c
delivers the highest level of database consolidation, without changes to existing applications. Oracle
Multitenant address historical DBA pain points: provisioning, patching, and consolidation. This new
architecture makes it easy to create a container database and simply plug-in multiple databases working
seamlessly with existing Oracle Database options, such as RAC and Active Data Guard. Oracle
Multitenant reduce IT costs and provide the ability to manage many databases as one, and retain the
isolation of separate databases, without the need to change any applications or access rights.
Oracle On-Line Analytical Processing (OLAP)
Oracle OLAP delivers advanced multidimensional analytic capabilities within Oracle Database 12c. It’s
designed to provide excellent query performance, fast incremental updates of data sets, efficient
management of summary data, and rich analytic content. The Oracle OLAP option is a full-featured
on-line analytical processing (OLAP) server embedded within the Oracle Database. The Oracle OLAP
option can be used to improve SQL-based business intelligence tools and applications by improving
query performance and enriching them with analytic content. As an OLAP solution that is deeply
embedded in the Oracle Database, the Oracle OLAP option allows centralized management of data
and business rules in a secure, scalable and enterprise-ready platform. Oracle Database 12c is support
for OLAP-based materialized views which can replace the need to replace, perhaps thousands of
materialized views into a single, easy-to-manage OLAP cube that is highly compressed and provides
efficient update capabilities.
Oracle Partitioning
Oracle Partitioning enhances the data management environment for OLTP, data marts, and data
warehouse applications by adding significant manageability, availability, and performance capabilities to
large underlying database tables and indexes. Oracle Partitioning permits large tables to be broken into
individually managed smaller pieces, while retaining a single application-level view of the data. A
comprehensive variety of partitioning methods are supported including, the ability to allow very large
tables (and their associated indexes) to be partitioned into smaller, more manageable units, providing a
“divide and conquer” approach to very large database management. Partitioning also improves
performance, as the optimizer will prune queries to only use the relevant partitions of a table or index
in a lookup. Oracle Partitioning can also manage the lifecycle of information, eliminating the need to
continually buy high-end storage confining data growth to a scalable, low-end storage solution.

Oracle Database 12c Product Family
Oracle Real Application Clusters
Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) harnesses the processing power of multiple, interconnected
servers on a cluster; allows access to a single database from multiple servers on a cluster, insulating
both applications and database users from server failures, while providing performance that scales out
on-demand at low cost; and is a vital component of grid computing that allows multiple servers to
access a single database at one time. Oracle Database 12c also includes Automated Storage
Management (ASM) and Oracle Clusterware. Combining the use of ASM and Oracle Clusterware
virtualizes storage, database servers, application servers, holistic management, and all the other aspects
related to deploying and managing a virtualized IT environment.
Oracle RAC One Node
Oracle RAC One Node is the one-node version of Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC). It
enables customers to standardize on a single deployment model for all their database needs. Oracle
RAC One Node makes the database highly available in the presence of computer hardware failures,
software failures, or planned software maintenance events. In the event of failures, the database
instance is restarted on an available server in the cluster and the client connections are moved to the
new instance. Oracle RAC One Node can be online upgraded to full Oracle RAC (RAC license
required) in order to scale to multiple servers.
Oracle Real Application Testing
Agile businesses want to be able to quickly adopt new technologies, whether it's operating systems,
servers, or software, to help them stay ahead of the competition. However, change often introduces a
period of instability into mission-critical IT systems. Oracle Real Application Testing—with Oracle
Database 12c Enterprise Edition—allows businesses to quickly adopt new technologies while
eliminating the risks associated with change. Oracle Real Application Testing combines a workload
capture and replay feature with an SQL performance analyzer to help you test changes against real-life
workloads, then helps you fine-tune them before putting them into production.
Oracle Spatial and Graph
Oracle Spatial and Graph includes advanced features for spatial data management and analysis as well
as graphs for physical, network, and social and linked data applications. The geospatial data features are
designed to support the most complex requirements found in Geographic Information Systems (GIS),
enterprise applications and location services applications. It extends the Locator spatial query and
analysis features in Oracle Database with more advanced spatial analysis and processing capabilities. It
provides support for two graph data models: Network Data Model graph (NDM), and RDF Semantic
Graph. NDM is used to model and analyze physical and logical networks used in industries such as
transportation, logistics, andutilities.RDF Semantic Graph supports the World WideWeb Consortium
(W3C) Resource Description Framework(RDF) standards. It provides RDF data management,
querying and inferencing that are commonly used in a variety of applications ranging from semantic
data integration, to social network analysis and linked open data applications.
