Oracle Acquires Tangosol
By blogsadmin on Mar 22, 2007
This AM Oracle announced its acquisition of Tangosol, whose Coherence technology provides in-memory infrastructure (or a data grid, as Tangosol calls it) for real-time analytics and high-performance applications that demand Extreme Transaction Processing (XTP) - for real-time monitoring and globally distributed, high-volume financial transaction processing, for example.
As I blog at this moment, Oracle Fusion Middleware SVP Thomas Kurian is explaining Oracle's roadmap for enabling XTP for Fusion Middleware customers in his TSS Symposium keynote in Las Vegas. If TSS makes this keynote available online, I'll be sure to provide a URL.
Update: no such archive appears to be available, but look for Thomas' keynote at JavaOne (which will in large portion involve XTP). Also, see Tangosol CEO Cameron Purdy's comments in this TSS.com thread.
