Forwarding: Exadata DW Webcast with Senior VP Juan Loazia
By antonio romero on Jan 26, 2009
OWB is of course used by customers other than DW customers, but I thought this announcement would find interested DW users here. An upcoming webcast on Oracle Exadata will provide a good close look at how Oracle provides disruptive improvements in data warehouse query performance through eliminating bottlenecks inherent in traditional architectures.
This talk is open to anyone, and provides a great way to get past any FUD you're hearing from DW appliance vendors who may be experiencing a bit of discomfort at the moment.
You can read through the abstract to find out what's on the agenda-- or you can just do as you're told and sign up now at the following link:
CMP Webcast: Extreme Performance for Your Data Warehouse
Wednesday, January 28th, 9:00 am PST
Data warehouses are tripling in size every two years and supporting ever-larger databases with ever increasing demands from business users to get “answers” faster requires a new way to approach this challenge. Oracle Exadata overcomes the limitations of conventional storage by utilizing a massively parallel architecture to dramatically increase data bandwidth between database and storage servers. In this webcast, we’ll examine these limitations and demonstrate how Oracle Exadata delivers extremely fast and completely scalable, enterprise-ready systems. In addition, you’ll learn how Oracle Exadata can improve query performance for data warehouses by at least a factor of 10x.
