This book helps readers understand and manage unstructured data using Oracle Database To handle large amount of unstructured data, issues seen and solutions provided by Oracle include: * Hitting limits on the image size **  An Oracle BLOB can be unlimited in size * Reaching internal structural limits within the database (max number of files that store data) **  Oracle's use of tablespaces allow a large number of multimedia files to be stored in it **  With the ability to control where a blob is stored, files can be split across multiple tablespaces and devices  * Dealing with fragmentation  **  By using locally managed tablespaces, fragmentation is removed as a performance issue.  * The efficient management of those images (for example, backup/recovery) **  Using partitioning on LOBS allows a very large number of multimedia files to be stored and efficiently managed **  Using RMAN, Oracle can be configured to back up large amounts of data When dealing with Multimedia, one has to look at the different dimensions of scalability to best understand how the Oracle Database best handles it.  This includes managing the CPU, memory, disk I/O, and network bandwidth. All of the above are covered in Chap 8, Tuning.
