Oracle Sharding distributes segments of a data set across many databases (shards) on different computers, on-premises or in cloud. It enables globally distributed, linearly scalable, multimodel databases. It requires no specialized hardware or software.
Oracle Sharding does all this while rendering the strong consistency, full power of SQL, support for structured and unstructured data and the Oracle Database ecosystem. It allows you to support applications that require low latency, high availability, and meet data sovereignty requirements.
