Forrester recently called cloud computing "the most exciting and disruptive force in the tech market in the last decade." We would agree.

That's why we're exhibiting and presenting at CloudExpo, which runs through Nov. 2 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

With the introduction of Oracle Database 12c Release 2 it is now possible to take advantage of the Database In-Memory columnar format, and all of its ground-breaking scan performance, in the Exadata flash cache. Unfortunately there isn't much documentation on this feature (see Section 7.9 Enabling or Disabling In-Memory Columnar Caching on Storage Servers in the Oracle Exadata System Software User's Guide). The following is a description of the different columnar formats available in the Exadata flash cache and how it works with Database In-Memory.

Oracle Exadata Storage Server Software release 12.1.2.1.0 introduced the ability to transform Hybrid Columnar Compressed (HCC) data into a pure columnar format in the flash cache. The process to accomplish this rearranges 1 MB worth of HCC data into a true columnar form and stores the page…

I made a presentation at the recent Storage Visions conference which gave me an opportunity to think about how rapidly Software-Defined Servers are evolving and how perfectly they fit with software defined storage architectures.

In the previous article, we reviewed several practical performance hints that let us exploit SSDs at their peak. Today you will see how to go further and improve random write workloads of a database by replacing regular SSDs with Intel Optane SSDs powered by cutting-edge 3D-XPoint technology.

What might be wrong with sustained random write workloads on good-old SSDs? Those who read the previous article will remember that regular SSDs have to perform garbage collection routines endlessly by erasing blocks with stale data. Since any kind of garbage collection inevitably leads to performance degradation, SSDs…

The Database In-Memory team would like to thank everyone for attending the In-Memory sessions and Hands On Labs. The response was great and we were able to meet lots of new friends and re-connect with old ones.

I was asked about the HOL lab guide and it is now available in the OOW Session Catalog so you can download it directly from there:

Other presentations are also available in their respective schedule listings.

Today marks the 10 year anniversary of Amazon's Dynamo whitepaper, a milestone that made me reflect on how much innovation has occurred in the area of databases over the last decade and a good reminder on why taking a customer obsessed approach to solving hard problems can have lasting impact beyond your original expectations.

It all started in 2004 when Amazon was running Oracle's enterprise edition with clustering and replication. We had an advanced team of database administrators and access to top experts within Oracle. We were pushing the limits of what was a leading commercial database at the time and were unable to sustain the availability, scalability and performance needs that our growing Amazon business demanded.

Our straining database infrastructure on Oracle led us to evaluate if we could develop a purpose-built database…

“With multi scale dataflow computing, we adjust the structure of the computer to the problem, rather than spending countless hours molding the problem into a computer language which is then interpreted by a microprocessor in an endless game of “Chinese whispers”. The poor microprocessor has no chance to figure out what the original problem might […]

In our previous two posts on In-Memory Expressions (IM expressions) we discussed the two types of IM expressions, user-defined In-Memory virtual columns and automatically detected In-Memory expressions. Now let's visit some of the details of IM expressions.

Probably the first thing to note is that since IM expressions are stored in the IM column store, their use is going to require more memory to store the IM expressions. We can see this when we populate IM expressions. In Part 1 of our series, we populated a user-defined IM virtual column for an expression in the LINEORDER table. Let's take a look at the space this required. Prior to creating the virtual column, the IM column store had these…

Today, I am excited to announce plans for Amazon Web Services (AWS) to bring an infrastructure Region to the Middle East! This move is another milestone in our global expansion and mission to bring flexible, scalable, and secure cloud computing infrastructure to organizations around the world. Based in Bahrain, this will be the first Region for AWS in the Middle East. The Region will be in the heart of Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, and we're aiming to have it ready by early 2019. This Region will consist of three Availability Zones at launch, and it will provide even lower latency to users across the Middle East.

This news marks the 22nd AWS Region we have announced globally. We already have 44 Availability Zones across 16 geographic Regions that customers can use today. We still have another five AWS Regions (and 14 Availability Zones) in China, France, Hong Kong, and Sweden. Plus another AWS GovCloud (US)…
