                                                 CERA Database

CERA is a database-based catalogue and archive. The catalogue information (metadata) is stored in a Relational Database Management System (Oracle). Its tables are grouped in Blocks concerning different themes. In addition, this data model is made up of several modules (table groups) which extend the basic information given in the blocks.

The data itself is stored in Binary Large Objects which can be integrated into the database storage system.

In its current implementation at DKRZ (12/2015), the CERA-2 database uses an Oracle 11gR2 database and an Oracle 12c Application Server running on Oracle database appliance. It is structured as federated database, providing high scalability within the future.
