Top Oracle Database Stories of 2008

After contemplating eWeek's top stories over holiday dessert, I came up with this short list of top stories for 2008.

Mobile Tel is looking for faster performance on 65 billion records of data. Their initial query performance is 10X to 72X faster than their current systems. Chicago Mercantile Exchange had a query that was taking four minutes. They tested it and ran in 10 seconds. They weren't even aware that the query got completed. That's the type of extreme performance businesses are seeing with Oracle Exadata Storage Server and HP Oracle Database Machine.

ISVs and businesses continue to adopt Oracle Database 11g realizing the benefits of recent upgrades.

More businesses are implementing very large data warehouses on Oracle Database: Chicago Stock Exchange – 35 TB; Quelle – 17 TB; and Anhui Telecom - 40 TB. IDC named Oracle a Major Leader in Data Warehouse Software.

It's said every year. Both Gartner and IDC independently named Oracle the #1 Relational Database.

I still argue the stories where businesses are realizing savings are the top stories of the year.

Happy 2009!
