A primer on Oracle Database as a Service

SAN FRANCISCO -- Cloud computing is a popular topic at this year's Oracle OpenWorld conference. One of the cloud components that has a buzz around it this year is Oracle Database as a Service.

Like all the other service-based products hitting the market today, the idea behind Oracle Database as a Service is to ease the deployment of database instances. It is as simple as that. If a business department wants to start up another application that needs a back-end database, they would be able to do that with Database as a Service without having to worry about the provisioning of server hardware, storage, network and other infrastructure concerns.

Watch this newscast from SearchOracle on Oracle Database as a Service, which includes interviews with the president of the Independent Oracle Users Group and the director of e-government and IT services for the state of Texas, which has implemented Oracle Database as a Service in a private cloud based on Exadata.
