The CEO of Oracle, Larry Ellison kicks off annual OpenWorld conference with new server, backup cloud service and faster in-memory database option. He wants to offer speedier databases in order to stimulate profitable growth. The speeds may go up to a hundred times as fast as the previous databases.

What is life like in the fast lane? Oracle’s latest in-memory databases do the job of relaying data from disk drives to microchips. The CEO, Larry Ellison spoke of how operations and online e-commerce can be made lightning fast. The profits at Oracle have dwindled thanks to competition from Salesforce.com and Workday as well as various other sources. 

The largest global database software provision company, Oracle is ready to introduce novel products. These will focus on clients of SAP AG and IBM. Ellison claims that data can be handled at monumental speed limits. The answers come back faster than the questions, according to the self-confident CEO. 

Ellison has the capabilities to take his firm forward into the future. He has made a series of mergers and also employed cloud systems in his quest to be the best. In order to make this a possibility, Ellison has used the Sparc chip also called the M6. It was a product of Oracle’s takeover of Sun Microsystems. 

It can facilitate up to 32 terabytes of DRAM memory. What Oracle requires at present is some spanking new hardware. It also hawks certain apps called Fusions. Ellison made a critique of traditional thinking according to which datacenters were built next to commodity hardware. Superior performance is what Ellison is looking for and he won’t give up unless he gets it in the products coming out of Oracle.
