New cloud and on-premises options for Oracle Autonomous Database

#artificialintelligence

Oracle is investing in its namesake database, with new hardware and cloud options for deployment of its Oracle Autonomous Database, and the promise of some big new software features. The development came as the Redwood City, Calif. In his opening keynote, CTO and co-founder Larry Ellison remarked on the complexity of running multiple databases for different needs, in contrast to the converged, multi-model approach he said Oracle is now embracing. Much like the modern smartphone integrates multiple capabilities into a single device, the Oracle database can do many different things, Ellison said. "We're a relational database, but we're also an in-memory database," he said.


Oracle Unleashes World's Fastest Database Machine Markets Insider

#artificialintelligence

ORACLE OPENWORLD -- Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M, available today, sets a new bar and changes the dynamics of the database infrastructure market. Exadata X8M combines Intel Optane DC persistent memory and 100 gigabit remote direct memory access (RDMA) over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) to remove storage bottlenecks and dramatically increase performance for the most demanding workloads such as Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), analytics, IoT, fraud detection, and high frequency trading. "With Exadata X8M, we deliver in-memory performance with all the benefits of shared storage for both OLTP and analytics," said Juan Loaiza, executive vice president, mission-critical database technologies, Oracle. "Reducing response times by an order of magnitude using direct database access to shared persistent memory accelerates every OLTP application, and is a game changer for applications that need real-time access to large amounts of data such as fraud detection and personalized shopping." Exadata X8M helps customers perform existing tasks faster and accelerates time-to-insight, while also enabling deeper and more frequent analyses.

Oracle Named a Leader in Translytical Data Platforms by Major Research Firm

#artificialintelligence

Today, Forrester Research named Oracle a leader in translytical data platforms, a database category which can handle a wide range of transactional and analytic workloads. "The Forrester Wave: Translytical Data Platforms, Q4 2019" report1 cites that, "unlike other vendors, Oracle uses a dual-format database (row and columns for the same table) to deliver optimal translytical performance," and that "customers like Oracle's capability to support many workloads including OLTP, IoT, microservices, multimodel, data science, AI/ML, spatial, graph, and analytics." "Oracle is pleased to be acknowledged as a leader by Forrester for its translytical database capabilities," said Juan Loaiza, Executive Vice President, Mission-Critical Database Technology, Oracle. "Oracle is setting the bar for the industry by offering a single converged database that brings together both transaction processing and analytic capabilities to provide our customers a mission-critical translytical data platform. Our converged database also provides built-in machine learning, spatial, graph, and JSON capabilities enabling our customers to easily run many kinds of workloads against the same data."


Oracle takes a new twist on MySQL: Adding data warehousing to the cloud service

ZDNet

MySQL, the open source relational database that came to Oracle through the Sun Microsystems acquisition, originated as a relatively simple relational database that was known for one task: transaction processing. In an announcement today, Oracle is unveiling an extended version of MySQL that takes it into data warehousing territory. It is releasing a new managed MySQL database service on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) that will support both transaction and analytic processing workloads. That creates a key change for MySQL users. With few if any analytic options open, MySQL users typically resorted to ETL to move data to a separate database if they needed a data warehouse.
