12c Release 2 – Transparent Data Encryption online !

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that even if you have incredibly stringent controls on user authentication, user authorisation etc, that wont save you if your data on disk is not encrypted.  All you need is an errant tape, a missing disk, a misplaced flash stick…and kersplat, someone has a copy of your datafiles from your Oracle database.

Data at rest should be encrypted, but that often meant taking applications offline to do so.

I’ve put my Speed Racer hat on Smile and here’s a video on a new 12c Release 2 feature covered in 60 seconds !

TimTams, Twelve Two, and tete-a-tete !

What do you do when

  • you’re an Australian,
  • you’re at Oracle Headquarters, 13,000 kms from home
  • you bump into someone whilst grabbing a coffee

Well…naturally, you lure them over with a packet of our famous Australian chocolate biscuits, grab a camera and have a chat !

Since OpenWorld 2016 when we first saw some of the cool features in Oracle Database 12c Release 2, many IT professionals out there have been exploring the release via our various cloud offerings, but if your organization has not yet embraced the cloud, then March 2017 is a great month for you !  Because you can now download the latest and greatest release of our database from the usual downloads page, and run it on your own servers in your own data centre.
