This SearchOracle article,
Oracle 11g hits the streets, has some great information about the August
2007 general availability of Oracle 11g (on Linux). Here are excerpts from
Database 11g, the long-awaited overhaul of
Oracle's flagship database management system (DBMS), made its official debut
today. . . .
"Oracle has invested heavily into
self-tuning capabilities, including automated storage and memory management
and intelligent tuning advisors," said Donald K. Burleson, a well-known
independent Oracle consultant.
"Now, in 11g, Oracle closes the loop and
offers intelligent automation tools to create a self-healing database.
The most important 11g new automation
features include fully automated memory tuning and fully automated SQL
tuning, a major advance in database technology." . . .
Oracle says the system offers enhanced
self-management and automated features designed to help organizations manage
enterprise grids and deliver on service-level agreements. Key among them are
automatic SQL and memory tuning. . .
"SQL Server is driving up, Oracle is
driving down," Burleson said.
"And part of that drive-down that Oracle is
doing in 11g is putting artificial intelligence in the database.
That's where I think that Oracle is going
to beat the daylights out of SQL Server."
