Oracle in-memory database add-on makes debut

Date: Sep 23, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO -- Oracle has announced an Oracle in-memory database add-on to the existing Oracle Database, a move it said could speed up querying by a factor of more than 1,000.

In-memory databases have been around for a while, and Oracle already had one of its own, the TimesTen In-Memory Database. Another prominent one is SAP Hana, which the applications giant introduced three years ago. But Oracle said the value of the announcement this week is that the Oracle in-memory database is just an add-on to the existing landmark Oracle Database, so it doesn't require a rip-and-replace of your database infrastructure or a large data migration.

Watch this newscast from SearchOracle on the new Oracle in-memory database add-on, which includes comments from CEO Larry Ellison and interviews with prominent database experts.
