Enterprise grid computing creates large pools of industry-standard, modular storage and servers. With this architecture, each new system can be rapidly provisioned from the pool of components. There is no need for peak workloads because capacity can be easily added or reallocated from the resource pools as needed.
Oracle Database is an RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism, and is called an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). Oracle Database has extended the relational model to an object-relational model, making it possible to store complex business models in a relational database.
BA Insight’s Oracle Database Connector is built upon industry standard database access methods, so it can equally support databases from other systems such as Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, and IBM DB2.
