The Oracle Database has a number of key features that are only available on the Exadata platform. Even if you don't currently work with Exadata, understanding some of these capabilities can be important and useful for any future endeavors. Free access to the Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud environments can certainly help with keeping up to date with some of these unique capabilities. This session will explore some of these Exadata only database features, including Zone Maps, SQL Quarantine, Real-Time Statistics, High Frequency Statistics Gathering, PDB Snapshot Carousel and some of the Automatic features, such as Automatic Indexing, Automatic Zone Maps and Automatic Materialized Views.
One the most impressive and exciting database innovations introduced in Oracle Database 19c is "Automatic Indexing", an expert system built into the database engine that not only recommends potential new indexes to create, but will actually introduce new indexes in a safe and automated manner. This session explores in-depth this ground breaking feature, detailing how Automatic Indexing works, how it can be deployed and highlights a number of improvements and new capabilities that have been introduced since Automatic Indexing was first released. Attendees will gain an excellent appreciation of the power to Automatic Indexing and how this feature can substantially assist in reducing the risk of having an sub-optimal indexing strategy that causes performance implications.
