Big news! The new major release of the Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database is out!
TimesTen 11g Release 2 (aka TimesTen 11.2.2) is now available for download from oracle.com.
Since it first started shipping to customers 14 years ago, TimesTen has been used for performance-critical applications in real-time online transaction processing (OLTP) applications. The newest release continues that tradition, providing significant scalability and throughput improvements that will enable even faster OLTP applications in the future.
These enhancements to TimesTen's already-blindingly-fast transaction processing capabilities are a perfect match for the Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) product. BRM provides advanced billing services for telecommunications service providers ... an area where TimesTen has been used since the beginning. Oracle BRM now uses TimesTen 11.2.2 ... enabling BRM to provide significantly faster response time and higher throughput ... while simultaneously handling more subscribers than previous releases.
This release of TimesTen also includes significant new features that make it easy to use the performance of TimesTen in business intelligence and analytics applications as well. Features such as analytic SQL functions and advanced columnar compression are key to TimesTen's role in the new Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine. Exalytics, running Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite and TimesTen, enables profound response time improvements of up to 20x ... enabling "speed of thought" visualization not possible before.
Our team has worked hard on TimesTen 11.2.2. We hope you like it!
