When it comes to performance, Azure SQL
Database is built for you, the developer. Azure
SQL Database is designed to make your work
easier and let you focus on other priorities.
It scales on the fly, without downtime, with
capabilities that make it great for building
multitenant software as a service (SaaS) apps.
Plus, it learns and adapts to your database
workload, whatever that may be, using built-in
intelligence to continually adjust and improve
That said, there’s more to a successful app than
impressive performance. That’s why we built
Azure SQL Database to be just as intelligent in
other areas, such as availability and security,
so that you won’t need to worry about those
essentials either. Finally, we built Azure SQL
Database to let you work the way you want,
using the tools and platforms you prefer. It’s
why we call Azure SQL Database the intelligent
database for developers. Read on to learn more,
and we’re sure you’ll agree.

At its Build conference in May, Microsoft took the wraps off Cosmos DB, the new incarnation of its
existing cloud-based Azure DocumentDB NoSQL database. With a nod to the dramatic, Microsoft
terms Cosmos DB as its biggest database bet since SQL Server; it is positioning it as its flagship
cloud database, suited for use cases ranging from security and fraud detection, to IoT (consumer and
industrial), personalization, e-commerce, gaming, social networks, chats, messaging, bots, oil and gas
recovery and refining, and smart utility grids. Cosmos DB is a good example of how cloud platform
providers are rethinking databases for scalable, elastic environments and commodity infrastructure.
The platform that is most comparable is Google Cloud Spanner, but each of these databases is
engineered for different purposes: Cosmos DB as a globally distributed operational database and
Spanner as a globally distributed SQL-supporting OLTP database.
The highlights of Cosmos DB include its flexibility in

Have you adjusted your data retention policies and electronic discovery procedures to comply with the new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP)? Learn how email archiving can help you with these electronic discovery requirements.
Organizations of all kinds rely on their relational databases for both transaction processing and analytics, but many still have challenges in meeting their goals of high availability, security, and performance. Whether planning for a major upgrade of existing databases or considering a net new project, enterprise solution architects should realize that the storage capabilities will matter. NetApp’s systems, software, and services offer a number of advantages as a foundation for better operational results.
This white paper describes how to close this "compliance gap," emphasizing the complementary relationship between SIEM and database activity monitoring technologies, which, taken together, provide a comprehensive view for organizations and auditors to keep data more secure while continuing to address compliance requirements.
Mandatory compliance requirements often vary or conflict. Discover the major issues and appropriate actions organizations must take today to protect the privacy of information and meet legal and contractual requirements.
Today's Corporate Executives are faced with an array of Data Security legislation which mandates that they be personally accountable for the protection of customer account information. Crippling penalties present a modern day 'sword of Damocles' hanging above the desks of CTOs, CIOs, CFOs and CEOs.
This white paper discusses Windows high availability, with a focus on business drivers and benefits. Cost and real-world benefits are considered the two most important elements in choosing the right high availability solution.
It should come as no surprise that eliminating end user and application downtime, through the use of availability and disaster recovery technologies, comes in at the very top of many IT agendas. Find out more. Download now
In this white paper, we describe the basic characteristics of DES and triple-DES and look at the security properties that a financial transaction system will want to achieve. We then look at the problems related with a migration from DES to triple-DES; enumerating and discussing several points that we suggest should be considered.
Although more than two-thirds of confidential information is regulated through database management systems, no computer security program offers adequate protection for the databases against the main threats affecting them today. Oracle, the leader in databases technologies, offers security solutions for the protection of all layers of the database.

With cybercrime and security breaches sharply on the rise, protecting valuable information from cyberattacks is an ongoing challenge for companies. In this increasingly insecure world, your critical information deserves the best protection, making the database and surrounding infrastructure the best line of defense. Protect your data better through evolving your approach to data security. Learn about three key steps to reinvent the security of your surrounding infrastructure to create an information fortress by protecting your valuable data at its source.
The Software in Silicon design of the SPARC M7 processor, and the recently announced SPARC S7 processor, implement memory access validation directly into the processor so that you can protect application data that resides in memory. It also includes on-chip Data Analytics Accelerator (DAX) engines that are specifically designed to accelerate analytic functions. The DAX engines make in-memory databases and applications run much faster, plus they significantly increase usable memory capacity by allowing compressed databases to be stored in memory without a performance penalty.
The following Software in Silicon technologies are implemented in the SPARC S7 and M7 processors:
Note: Security in Silicon encompasses both Silicon Secured Memory and cryptographic instruction acceleration, whereas SQL in Silicon includes In-Memory Query Acceleration and In-Line Decompression.
Silicon Secured Memory is the first-ever end-to-end implementation of memory-access validation done in hardware. It
Security has become top of mind for CIOs, and CEOs. Encryption at rest is a piece of the solution, but not a big piece. Encryption over the network is another piece, but only a small piece. These and other pieces do not fit together well; they need to unencrypt and reencrypt the data when they move through the layers, leaving clear versions that create complex operational issues to monitor and detect intrusion.
Larger-scale high-value applications requiring high security often use Oracle middleware, including Java and Oracle database. Traditional security models give the data to the processors to encrypt and unencrypt, often many times. The overhead is large, and as a result encryption is used sparingly on only a few applications. The risk to enterprises is that they may have created an illusion of security, which in reality is ripe for exploitation.
The modern best-practice security model is an end-to-end encryption architecture. The application deploys application-led encryption s
