What is Oracle   

Historically, Oracle has targeted high-end workstations and minicomputers as the server platforms to run its database systems. Its relational database was the first to support the SQL language, which has since become the industry standard. The University of Arizona has entered into a campus license agreement with Oracle Corporation for a wide range of Oracle software products.
