Oracle Boosts Relational Database Scalability to New Levels
The popularity of data-intensive applications has created a demand for relational databases that run time-sensitive queries to enable effective decision making. Hardware and software innovations are needed to enable these databases to run faster so they can keep up with data and user growth. In the past, relational databases consisted of software running on a large server attached to a dedicated storage environment. Today, relational databases span from large systems to networked clusters to in-memory operational environments. Organizations need a way to effectively integrate in-memory database solutions, ensuring that the right hardware is in place to optimize performance and meet key requirements. To help solve this challenge, Intel® Solid-State Drives (Intel® SSD) are emerging as a key infrastructure component to deliver the scale and performance needed for in-memory databases.
The demonstration successfully showcased how the Intel® SSD DC S3700 Series paired with Oracle TimesTen* can offer greater scalability by removing storage bottlenecks. By replacing existing rotational media, the Intel® SSD DC S3700 Series system provided reliable scalability of Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database applications and datasets. This will help organizations use Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database at its full potential to manage data in real time, even as data and users grow.
