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.

This huge reduction in storage utilization meant that no additional storage was needed to accommodate their data growth for one year even as their clients introduced more applications running against the database. In addition, they saw an 80% improvement of query performance as a result of storing LOB data in Secure Files.
