PolarDB's is a cloud-native database that features a computing-storage separation architecture. It offers affordable data storage, efficient scalability, high-speed parallel computing capabilities, and fast data search and processing. By combining PolarDB with computing algorithms, it enables the conversion of data into productivity and drives business data output.

This article describes how open source PolarDB uses orafce to support Oracle compatibility.

The test environment is macos + docker. For more information about deploying PolarDB, see:

Install orafce for PolarDB
