Minneapolis, MN December 31, 2012

Colectica Repository, the leading enterprise solution for ISO 11179 metadata repositories and registries, adds a new supported database platform. Oracle users can now manage open standards based metadata using Colectica Repository.

Colectica, a trusted leader in metadata management and data documentation, today announced upcoming support for Oracle Database 11g for the Colectica Repository system.

Customers can now leverage Colectica Repository to run real-time transactional and analytical applications with Oracle Database 11g. Colectica customers using the Oracle In-Memory Database Cache can also accelerate response time for performance critical repository operations.

Able to scale both out and up, Colectica Repository’s flexible and high-throughput architecture can run both distributed and memory-intensive metadata registry operations against an Oracle database. Colectica Repository efficiently scales-out when multiple clients or Colectica Portal users demand blazing fast response times, making it an ideal platform for managing ISO 11179 conforming metadata registries in enterprise environments.
