Published by: Oracle

Information Technology (IT) organizations are under pressure to manage costs, increase agility, ensure availability, reduce security risks, and deliver the proper level of system performance to meet business objectives. Consolidation of databases and other systems has emerged as a common strategy used by IT organizations to meet these objectives.
This paper outlines best practices for consolidation of Oracle databases, such as Oracle Cloud@Customer powered by Intel® and Oracle Gen 2 Exadata Cloud at Customer powered by 2nd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors and Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory, to achieve the primary business objectives of managing costs, improving manageability of databases, ensuring availability, improving security, and delivering the proper level of performance for business processes that rely on Oracle databases.
