Database Service Oracle

Your Requirement

You require an Oracle database but do not want to commit resources in your institute for an in-house operation and administration.

Our Offer

GWDG operates an Oracle Enterprise database server. You get your own oracle account (“schema“) and can create the required database objects (tables, views, etc.). On request we will assist you in designing tables and developing application programs. Use our Oracle web server for your database- centric web applications.

Preconditions For Use

The service is available to all Max Planck Institutes and institutes of the University of Göttingen. Setting up an account in the Oracle database is carried out at request.
