OOW2014 Wrap up!

Thanks to all those that attended the In-Memory sessions and stopped by the In-Memory demopod during this years Oracle OpenWorld. It was an amazing conference this year with lots of great technical sessions and interesting discussion at the demo grounds.

I've been inundated with requests to share the presentation we gave on In-Memory at the conference, so I thought it would be a good idea to share the links to the presentations here.

Enjoy!

Day 5 of Oracle OpenWorld 2014 October 2nd

It's the last day of Oracle OpenWorld and we have saved the very best for last. So hopefully you are still awake and functioning after the party!

Today, we have a fantastic line up of In-Memory sessions.

We get the day started at 9:30AM with Top Five Things to Know About Oracle Database In-Memory (Session CON7248) in Moscone South - room 104. During this session, myself and several of the customers who have tested Oracle Database In-Memory will share our top tips for getting started with Oracle Database In-Memory and the best use cases. Don't forget we will have your last chance to win some In-Memory goodies in this session so come early and get a good seat! ;-)

Next up is Oracle Database In-Memory in Action (Session CON6812) at 10:45AM in Moscone South - room 104 presented by Kerry Osborne and Tanel Poder. In this session the lads will share some astounding performance results for real-time queries scanning multi-terabyte data sets in memory.

Then you have an opportunity to hear about two of my favorite subjects when the Optimizer development team presents Oracle Database In-Memory Meets the Oracle Optimizer (Session CON7639) at 12PM in Moscone South - room 102. This session explains in detail the enhancements made to the Oracle Optimizer to make it fully In-Memory aware.

We continue our roll, with How Oracle Database In-Memory Can Improve Performance in Financial Services (Session CON3924) at 1:15PM in Moscone South - room 102.

We finish up the technical sessions with Using the In-Memory Columnar Store to Perform Real-Time Analysis of CERN Data (Session CON4731) at 1:15PM in Moscone South - room 104, where you can hear about how Oracle Database In-Memory technology was used to help physicists at CERN analyze the data recorded by the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider.

Day 4 of Oracle OpenWorld 2014 October 1st

Thanks to all those who stopped by the demogrounds  to chat with the In-Memory developers over the last two days. Remember, today is the last day of the demogrounds, so if you haven't had a chance to stop by yet, do so today. The In-Memory developers will be there from 9:45 am until 4pm. This maybe your last chance to snag an In-Memory bumper sticker!

There are also some great technical session on today, including:

  • Oracle Database In-Memory: Under the Hood (Session CON8367) at 2PM in Moscone South - room 104
    In this session, Tirthankar Lahiri, the VP of the In-Memory development, provdies an insiders view of the technology underlying Oracle Database In-Memory. He'll show how the novel in-memory dual format avoids the trade-offs inherent in single-format databases and enables both super fast analytics and online transaction processing (OLTP).

  • Oracle Database In-Memory Bootcamp (Session HOL9346) will take place at 4:15 PM in the Peninsula room at the Hotel Nikko. This hands-on lab provides a step-by-step guide on how to get started with Oracle Database In-Memory, how to identify which of the optimizations are being used, and how your SQL statements benefit from them. You will also get to experience firsthand just how easy it is to start taking advantage of this technology and the incredible performance improvements it has to offer.

  • Oracle Database In-Memory: How Do I Choose Which Tables to Use It For? (Session CON6558) at 4:45PM in Moscone South - room 305
    During this presentation, Christo Kutrovsky answers some of the most pressing questions customers have when they discover Oracle Database In-Memory such as 'How do you find which tables need In-Memory?'.

Day 2 of Oracle OpenWorld 2014 September 29th

Oracle OpenWorld started yesterday and San Francisco is just buzzing with Oracle folks.

If you are attending the conference don't miss the opportunity to chat with the Oracle Database In-Memory team at one of our technical sessions or at the Oracle demogrounds.

Our first technical session, Oracle Database In-Memory: The Next Big Thing (Session CON8622) is on today at 1:30pm in Moscone South, room 103.

In this session, Juan Loaiza explains in detail what motivated Oracle to develop this new technology and provides a clear understanding of how this unique “dual format” architecture works. It also illustrates how the new in-memory functionality interacts with key database performance features such as Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC), Oracle Partitioning, parallel execution, and much more.

Then at 4:15pm we'll host our first Oracle Database In-Memory Bootcamp (Session HOL9346) of the week in the Peninsula room at the Hotel Nikko. In this hands-on lab we'll provide a step-by-step guide on how to get started with Oracle Database In-Memory, how to identify which of the optimizations are being used, and how your SQL statements benefit from them. You will also get to experience firsthand just how easy it is to start taking advantage of this technology and the incredible performance improvements it has to offer.

Remember it's about a 15 minute walk from Moscone to the Hotel Nikko, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get there.

Members of the In-Memory team will also be available from 9:30am to 6pm at the Oracle Database demogrounds in Moscone South, to answer any  questions you might have. Remember the In-Memory demo booth is the best place to snag a limited edition In-Memory bumper sticker!

Preview the Oracle Database In-Memory option

At Oracle Open World 2013 Larry Ellison announced the upcoming availability of Oracle Database In-Memory, a solution for accelerating database-driven business decision-making to real-time. Unlike specialized approaches that are restricted to particular workloads or applications, Oracle leverages a new In-Memory Column Store format to speed up analytics.
