Abstract

Over the last decade, the nature of content stored on computer storage systems has evolved from being relational to being semi-structured, i.e., unstructured data accompanied by relational metadata. Average data volumes have increased from a few hundred megabytes to hundreds of terabytes. Simultaneously, data feed rates have also increased with increase in processor, storage and network bandwidths. Data growth trends seem to be following Moore's law and thereby imply an exponential explosion in content volumes and rates in the years to come. We introduce Oracle SecureFiles System, a storage architecture designed to provide highly scalable storage and access execution of unstructured and structured content as first-class objects within the Oracle relational database management system. Oracle SecureFiles breaks the performance barrier that has been keeping unstructured content out of databases. The architecture provides capability to maximize utilization of storage usage through compression and deduplication and preserves data management robustness through Oracle database server features such as transactional atomicity, durability, availability, read-consistent query-ability and security of the database management system.
