Feel like upgrades and new software are offered for databases and systems at a rapid pace? You’re right, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

As web development grows and evolves, the need for system updates that keep pace with the changes is imperative. The Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) is no different.

Recently, we talked about the latest upgrade, ODA X5-2. It’s full of features that make the roll out of a new database and application infrastructure quick and efficient.

If you don’t upgrade on a continual basis, you’re taking a risk of being left with an unsupported product.

Though you may feel like upgrading a few years ago took care of your issues, there have been a large volume of changes in Oracle’s systems in the past three years. What that means is that older systems grow more and more inefficient, and end up becoming unsupported.

Also, upgrading your software on a regular basis can greatly reduce the actual time spent upgrading. For example, if you have performed regular upgrades to your system, an upgrade to a whole stack may take as little as eight hours. However, failing to upgrade on a regular basis can mean that when upgrades finally do take place, they could take days to perform.
