Larry announces Oracle Database In-Memory Option

Oracle OpenWorld 2013 started yesterday and San Francisco is a buzz with Larry Ellison’s announcement of the Oracle Database In-Memory option.

During last night’s keynote, Larry explained how the Oracle Database In-Memory option dramatically accelerates Analytics, Data Warehousing, Reporting, and OLTP performance by allowing data to be stored in-memory in a columnar format.

Having worked at Oracle for years on query optimization, I've personally seen the excruciating effort that enterprises go to in order to squeeze the most performance out of their systems. A lot of our customers run mission-critical systems on Oracle Databases, so their ability to get answers quickly literally translates into their own competitive advantage. Oracle Database In-Memory is one of the most exciting products I've worked on, because it takes companies to a whole new frontier of data-driven decision-making and competitiveness. And as Larry said, it'll be as simple as flipping a switch. Every application that runs on Oracle Database 12c can automatically and transparently take advantage of the Oracle Database In-Memory option.

If you are lucky enough to be attending Oracle Open World, and want a more detailed explanation of the Oracle Database In-Memory option check the Oracle Database In-Memory—The Next Big Thing Session GEN9312 Presented by Juan Loaiza at 11:45am in Moscone South - room 103. Or stop by the Oracle Database In-Memory demo on the engineered systems showcase in the lower lobby of Moscone North.

Learn From The IOUG at Oracle OpenWorld 2013

As in previous years, Oracle OpenWorld attendees will have the opportunity to not only learn from Oracle product experts and partners, but also directly from customers and actual users of Oracle technology.

For Oracle Database and related technologies, a great venue to do this is the User Group Forums on Sunday, Sept. 22, and very specifically anything organized by the IOUG (Independent Oracle Users Group). Check here for more info.

In addition to those sessions, the IOUG will also have a pavilion, and will organize plenty of other fun activities. More info on IOUG's site.

To talk about this and more, I recently had the pleasure to host IOUG President, and
Oracle ACE Director, Michelle Malcher and we recorded this podcast.
