Oracle Database Appliance Health Check
Your Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) is at the heart of your database architecture, as a simplistic and reliable platform; but are you utilizing it at its full potential? When you leverage Viscosity, an Oracle Platinum Partner and certified ODA expert, you are gaining leaders in end to end design, implementation, and support for ODA.
