Database Default Characteristics
By default, a database has the following characteristics when it is created:
Public – All Vector users in the instance can connect to the database. You can use options to alter this behavior when creating the database.
Unicode-enabled with Normalization Form C – The database can contain columns with Unicode data types such as NCHAR and NVARCHAR. Both datatypes can hold at least one two-byte UTF8 character.
The only supported character encoding is UTF8 Basic. All character data types that have a length in bytes greater than one may contain a UTF8 character. VARCHAR, CHAR with length of exactly one are able to hold single character ASCII only.
