ESRI announced that ArcSDE 9 for Oracle has been certified for use on Oracle 10g. Certification for Oracle 10g ensures a high level of interoperability and provides additional options for open and scalable solutions to ESRI software users. As an Oracle alliance partner for more than 10 years, ESRI has fully integrated its GIS technology with Oracle’s database management system software and continues to do so with the recent release of Oracle 10g.
“ESRI’s support for Oracle Database 10g and Oracle 10g Spatial will enable organizations to capitalize on all of their spatial data resources,” said Steven Hagan, Vice President, Server Technologies, Oracle Corporation.
“With the combination of ArcGIS 9 and Oracle10g, users will be able to easily manage and query spatial, imagery and business data from one enterprise GIS solution.” ESRI software users can expect a seamless upgrade to Oracle 10g and cross platform interoperability. Support for Oracle 10g will be available on all operating system platforms that ESRI server software supports at ArcSDE 9 including Windows, UNIX, and Linux.
Oracle Locator is included with both the Standard and Enterprise Editions, and the Oracle Spatial Option is available only as an extension to the Oracle 10g Enterprise Edition. ESRI also announced that the release of ArcSDE 9.1 would add support for the new GeoRaster type and provide tools to import and export Oracle Spatial 10g topology to the geodatabase.
Support for Oracle 10g is available at the ArcSDE 9 release.
