    You can create an Oracle Database in three ways:

    Use the Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA).

    DBCA can be launched by the Oracle Universal Installer, depending upon the type of install that you select, and provides a graphical user interface (GUI) that guides you through the creation of a database. You can also launch DBCA as a standalone tool at any time after Oracle Database installation to create or make a copy (clone) of a database. Refer to Oracle Database 2 Day DBA for detailed information on creating a database using DBCA.

    Use the CREATE DATABASE statement.

    You can use the CREATE DATABASE SQL statement to create a database. If you do so, you must complete additional actions before you have an operational database. These actions include creating users and temporary tablespaces, building views of the data dictionary tables, and installing Oracle built-in packages. These actions can be performed by executing prepared scripts, many of which are supplied for you.

    If you have existing scripts for creating your database, consider editing those scripts to take advantage of new Oracle Database features. Oracle provides a sample database creation script and a sample initialization parameter file with the Oracle Database software files. Both the script and the file can be edited to suit your needs. See "Manually Creating an Oracle Database".

    Upgrade an existing database.

    If you are already using a earlier release of Oracle Database, database creation is required only if you want an entirely new database. You can upgrade your existing Oracle Database and use it with the new release of the database software. The Oracle Database Upgrade Guide manual contains information about upgrading an existing Oracle Database.

    An Oracle database is a collection of data treated as a unit. The purpose of a database is to store and retrieve related information. A database server is the key to solving the problems of information management. In general, a server reliably manages a large amount of data in a multiuser environment so that many users can concurrently access the same data. All this is accomplished while delivering high performance. A database server also prevents unauthorized access and provides efficient solutions for failure recovery.

    Oracle Database is the first database designed for enterprise grid computing, the most flexible and cost effective way to manage information and applications. Enterprise grid computing creates large pools of industry-standard, modular storage and servers. With this architecture, each new system can be rapidly provisioned from the pool of components. There is no need for peak workloads, because capacity can be easily added or reallocated from the resource pools as needed.
