July 1983

The Oracle Version 3 is a full-function relational database for 16-bit microcomputers, mainframes, and minicomputers. It has multiuser capabilities, automatic recovery from system failure, and in-batch and online environments involving databases as large as billions of characters of data. It's provided with a complete set of software-development tools that include an interactive application generator, a report writer, a word processing and documentation preparation system, and an integrated data dictionary.

A unique feature of Oracle 3 is its ability to accept data downloaded from a mainframe database for analysis and reporting on a microcomputer.

Oracle Version 3 currently works on Motorola 68000-based systems running Unix. The suggested retail price ranges from $600 to $2000, depending on the number of users. Contact Oracle Corp., Suite 180, Building 3, 3000 Sand Hill Rd., Menlo Park, CA 94025, (415) 854-7350.
