NEW DELHI: Oracle India Pvt. Ltd (Oracle India) has launched the Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (Oracle Database XE), a free, starter edition of its database software.

Indian companies can now download a beta version of Oracle Database XE.

This new edition offers developers, database administrators (DBAs) and students a free starter database to develop and deploy their applications. It is also freely available for independent software vendors (ISVs) and hardware vendors to distribute or embed with their applications and products.

Oracle Database XE is built on the Oracle Database 10g Release 2 code base and is fully compatible with the family of Oracle Database products. It is available on 32-bit Linux and Windows operating systems and can be installed on any supported hardware platform.

As a free, starter database, Oracle Database XE uses at most one CPU or dual core of processing capability, memory usage is kept below 1GB and stores up to 4GB of data. If the company’s database usage grows beyond this, the company also provides clear migration and upgradation path to higher version.

Speaking on the occasion, Oracle Corporation Asia Pacific database pre-sales senior director VG Sundar Ram said, “With this edition, the company is targeting the developer community who works on different technologies to use Oracle products as backend database of choice. We are also targeting the educational institutions for inclusion of this edition in the curriculum. We are also partnering with ISVs and hardware players to bundle this software with their product.”
