AskTOM Office Hours offers free, open Q&A sessions with Oracle Database experts. Here is the recording of the Oracle Sharding session that I conducted on April 23rd, 2018.
Oracle Database with Sharding is a globally distributed multi-model (relational & document) cloud-native (and on-premises) DBMS. It is built on shared-nothing architecture where data is horizontally partitioned across databases that share no hardware or software. It provides linear scalability, fault isolation and geographic data distribution for shard-amenable applications. Sharding does all this while rendering strong consistency, full power of SQL, and the Oracle Database ecosystem. Listen to this recorded session to learn how you can deploy a sharded DB and elastically scale your transactions, database capacity and concurrent users.
