Oracle Exadata Patching is a set of essential periodic procedures on Engineered Systems’ components to ensure optimal performance and avoid unforeseen downtime. Many Exadata Patching aspects are now automated by Oracle to reduce complexities. However, depending on security settings and installation of additional packages that support new software on the compute or database nodes, timely Exadata patching is mission critical.
What is Exadata Patching?
Owning an on-premises database machine is like owning an automobile that fulfils all travel requirements. Owning an Oracle Exadata database machine is like selecting the best-rated automobile among all competitors in terms of performance, availability, and reliability. However, every automobile requires periodic servicing to continue delivering the peak performance.
Exadata patching services handle the responsibility of keeping the firmware and software of various components up to date. The primary benefit of Exadata patching services is the assurance that the Engineered System will not break down and cause business loss, which is often the case when the storage servers, Database Servers, and Network Switches are not properly maintained.
