Note: The \ue007ollowing is intended to outline our general product direction. It is intended \ue007or in\ue007ormation purposes

only, and may not be incorporated into any contract. It is not a commitment to deliver any material, code, or \ue007unctionality, and should not be relied upon in making purchasing decisions. The development, release, and timing o\ue007 any \ue007eatures or \ue007unctionality described \ue007or Oracle\u2019s products remains at the sole discretion o\ue007 Oracle.

With databases tripling in size every two years, IT departments are \ue000acing both new and \ue000amiliar challenges: How to maintain users\u2019 service levels in the event o\ue000 server, storage, or site \ue000ailures? How to prevent data breach and ensure regulatory compliance? How to store, manage, and protect all types o\ue000 in\ue000ormation, yet easily integrate it into routine business opera- tions? How to scale large transactional and data warehousing systems while ensuring per\ue000ormance, reliability, and manageability? And how to upgrade so\ue000tware and hardware while minimizing the risk o\ue000 change?

Oracle helps you address these challenges with a broad array o\ue000 new

\ue000eatures and enhancements in Oracle Database 11g. By extending Oracle\u2019s unique ability to deliver the benefts o\ue000 grid computing, Oracle Database 11g enables you to improve user service levels, reduce downtime, and

make more-e\ue000fcient use o\ue000 IT resources while you increase the per\ue000ormance,
scalability, and security o\ue000 your business applications 24/7.
Customers and partners began Oracle Database 11g beta testing in September 2006. It is expected to be
available \ue000or production use in 2007.
Oracle Database 11g: New Features Overview
Protect In\ue000ormation, Reduce Complexity,
and Adapt to Change
Manage Availability and Per\ue000ormance with
Oracle Enterprise Grids
Four years ago Oracle introduced grid computing with Oracle Database 10g, \ue001undamentally
changing the way data centers looked and operated, and trans\ue001orming them \ue001rom silos o\ue001

disparate resources to shared pools o\ue001 servers and storage. By clustering low-cost commodity servers and modular storage arrays in a grid, organizations are able to build IT systems that deliver the highest levels o\ue001 manageability, availability, and per\ue001ormance. Oracle Database 11g extends Oracle\u2019s unique ability to deliver the bene\ue000ts o\ue001 grid computing.

Meet Users\u2019 Service Level Expectations
Managing service level objectives is an ongoing challenge. Users expect \ue001ast, secure access

to business applications 24/7, and IT managers must deliver without increasing costs and resources. The manageability \ue001eatures in Oracle Database 11g are designed to help organizations easily manage in\ue001rastructure grids and success\ue001ully meet their users\u2019 service level expectations. Oracle Database 11g\u2019s new manageability \ue001eatures and enhancements help you increase

database administrator (DBA) productivity and reduce management costs while increasing
the per\ue001ormance, scalability, and security o\ue001 your business applications around the clock.
Minimize the Risk o\ue007 Change with Real Application Testing

Oracle Database 11g lowers the cost o\ue001 database upgrades and other hardware and operating system changes by making it signi\ue000cantly easier to test systems be\ue001ore and a\ue001ter the change so you can identi\ue001y and \ue000x problems. For example:

\u2022Database Replay lets you easily capture actual production workloads at the database level
and replay them on your test system so you can \ue001ully test the impact o\ue001 system changes,
including critical concurrency characteristics.
\u2022SQL Per\ue001ormance Analyzer identi\ue000es structured query language (SQL) execution plan
changes and per\ue001ormance regressions. Identi\ue000ed problems can then be \ue000xed using SQL
Tuning Advisor by either reverting to the original execution plan or by \ue001urther tuning.
Boost DBA Productivity with Management Automation
Oracle Database 11g continues the e\ue001\ue001ort\u2014begun in Oracle9i Database and carried on
through Oracle Database 10g\u2014o\ue001 dramatically simpli\ue001ying and \ue001ully automating DBA tasks.
New capabilities in Oracle Database 11g include
\u2022Automatic SQL tuning with sel\ue001-learning capabilities
\u2022Automatic, uni\ue000ed tuning o\ue001 both System Global Area (SGA) and Program Global Area
(PGA) memory bu\ue001\ue001ers
The manageability \ue007eatures in

Oracle Database 11g are designed
to help organizations easily manage
in\ue007rastructure grids and success\ue007ully

meet their users\u2019 service level
Oracle Database 11g\u2019s new
manageability \ue007eatures and
enhancements help you increase
DBA productivity and reduce
management costs while increasing
the per\ue007ormance, scalability, and
security o\ue007 your business
applications around the clock.
\u2022New advisors \ue001or partitioning, data recovery, streams per\ue001ormance, and space management
\u2022Enhancements to the Automatic Database Diagnostic Monitor (ADDM), which provide
a better global view o\ue001 per\ue001ormance in Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC)
environments and improved comparative-per\ue001ormance analysis capabilities
Achieve Faster Error Resolution with Fault Diagnostics
New \ue001ault diagnostic capabilities in Oracle Database 11g make it much easier \ue001or customers
to capture the data Oracle Support needs when errors occur. This allows \ue001aster problem
resolution with \ue001ewer demands on customers to reproduce problems.
Minimize the Cost of Downtime
In this 24/7 global economy, organizations can\u2019t a\ue001\ue001ord IT systems that are down. Systems
must be reliable and quickly recoverable in the event o\ue001 \ue001ailure. Oracle Database 11g protects

systems \ue001rom all common causes o\ue001 planned and unplanned downtime, including server, storage, and site \ue001ailures, as well as the biggest cause o\ue001 all\u2014human error. With Oracle Database 11g\u2019s high availability \ue001eatures, you can signi\ue000cantly reduce the risk o\ue001 downtime and data loss.

Enable Rapid Data Recovery Through Oracle Data Guard
Oracle Data Guard coordinates the maintenance and synchronization o\ue001 your database
between local and remote servers \ue001or rapid recovery \ue001rom disaster or site \ue001ailure. Oracle
Database 11g provides a number o\ue001 signi\ue000cant Oracle Data Guard enhancements, including
\u2022The ability to run real-time queries on a physical standby system \ue001or reporting and
other purposes
\u2022The ability to per\ue001orm online, rolling database upgrades by temporarily converting a
physical standby system to logical standby
\u2022Snapshot standby to support test environments
In addition, per\ue001ormance \ue001or both physical and logical standby is improved. Logical standby
now supports Extensible Markup Language (XML) Type character large object (CLOB)
datatypes and transparent data encryption. Automatic \ue001ast-start \ue001ailover is now supported \ue001or
asynchronous transports.
Protection from Downtime

Oracle Database 11g protects
systems \ue007rom all common causes
o\ue007 planned and unplanned down-
time, including server, storage, and
site \ue007ailures, as well as the biggest
cause o\ue007 all\u2014human error.
