The following optional database options can be purchased separately. These options are only available with the Enterprise Edition:

Partitioning Option[edit]

The partitioning option allows DBAs to split large tables into more manageable sub-tables (partitions). Some of the advantages offered:

  • Partitions can be stored in different tablespaces;
  • Partitions can be added/ removed while users are working;
  • Data can be selected from targeted partitioned without having to scan all partitions for rows (partition pruning).

Spatial Option[edit]

The Spatial option store geographical information (GPS coordinates for instance) with records.

Real Application Clusters Option[edit]

Real Application Clusters (RAC) - formerly called Oracle Parallel Server (OPS) - allows more than one instance to mount and open an Oracle database. RAC can only be used on special clustered systems.

Advanced Security Option[edit]

Oracle Advanced Security (formerly Advanced Networking Option) provides a suite of security features to protect a company's network by providing network encryption, authentication solutions, single sign-on services, and support for other security protocols.

Oracle Label Security[edit]

Row level security based on stringent government and commercial requirements; sensitivity labels (i.e. confidential, doctor-patient only, top secret) provide better intellectual property protection and privacy.

Oracle OLAP[edit]

Oracle OLAP offers a complete set of analytical functions fully integrated within the database.

Oracle Data Mining[edit]

Oracle Data Mining offers embedded data mining for classifications, predictions, and associations to build advanced business intelligence applications.

Database Vault[edit]

A new option to Oracle Database 10g Release 2 Enterprise Edition that lets you control who, when, and where data and applications can be accessed, protecting against the most common security threat like malicious internal users.

Oracle Standard Edition[edit]

Four-processor version of Oracle Database 10g, including full clustering support (Real Application Clusters).

Oracle Standard Edition One[edit]

Two-processor version of Standard Edition at an attractive entry-level price. Real Application Clusters is NOT included with Oracle Database Standard Edition One.

Oracle Standard Edition 2[edit]

Oracle has now replaced Standard Edition and Standard Edition One with just Standard Edition 2 (SE2). With SE2 you can only run on a maximum of 2 sockets. This also means on a 2 node SE2 RAC cluster you can have only one socket on each server. SE2 is licensed by occupied sockets. You need one processor license for each socket containing a processor up to a maximum of 2 sockets.

An important note in 19c: Desupport of Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) with Oracle Database Standard Edition 19c (Doc ID 2504078.1)

Oracle Personal Edition[edit]
