Oracle turned plenty of heads recently when it unveiled new in-memory database software -- and that wasn't the only big news to come out of the Oracle OpenWorld 2013 conference in San Francisco.
In addition to unveiling the new in-memory database -- which conference goers immediately saw as an answer to Oracle rival SAP's HANA in-memory strategy -- Oracle also announced a new Database-as-a-Service option and several new applications.
SearchOracle editors David Essex and Mark Brunelli were live on the scene at Oracle OpenWorld 2013. In this podcast, they discuss the new in-memory database and other big OpenWorld news. They also talk about some of the hot topics on the minds of attendees, including Oracle's plans for Solaris 11 and Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.
