I arrived in San Francisco on midday Saturday after 16hours flight from Dubai to attend Oracle OpenWorld as a Speakerand Oracle Excellence Award Winner. After check-in to hotel, went outside with another my friend for late lunch and visited Ferry Building area. Sunday morning started very early and OpenWorld registration went very smoothly, the first session I went to was DBA Expert Panel Discussion, where all leading DBAs were present.
Next was to spend 1 hour on IOUC User group booth to represent MEOUG. IOUC booth was setup to spread user group messages to OOW attendees. I met few of other User Group presidents and representatives, from there it was off to the OTN Lounge to meet other Oracle OTN/ACE folks. Finally reached to keynote of Sunday from Larry Ellison.
Following were the main announcements from keynote:
Oracle’s introduction of in-memory option for 12C database, as well as Big Memory Machine-M6-32
Ellison said that the in memory option will make getting responses to queries 100 times faster and we can now get responses faster than we can come up with the questions. The M6-32 Big Memory Machine, which is said to be ideal for in-memory databases is a high-powered server featuring a new processor in the form of the SPARC M6. The chip incorporates 12 cores – twice the number in the current M5, it can run 96 threads per processor.
