Incorporates performance and scalability improvements for real-time OLTP applications
Oracle has released Oracle’s application-tier in-memory database, Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database 11g Release 2, that has been designed to run in the application-tier to provide both rapid transaction response time and high throughput required by mission-critical applications.
Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database is an in-memory relational database capable of handling both OLTP and analytic workloads constrained only by the full amount of physical memory available.
The new release incorporates performance and scalability improvements for real-time online transaction processing (OLTP) applications and introduces new functionality to support analytic applications with real-time in-memory data management.
With Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management, Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database enables Oracle BRM to achieve faster response time, higher throughput and supports more subscribers than previous releases.
Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database for Exalytics enables Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite to achieve up to 20x response time improvement for speed-of-thought visualisation and up to 5x more data to be stored in-memory with advanced columnar compression capabilities.
With this new release, customers can enhance performance and scalability for real-time OLTP applications via parallel replication between Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database instances, parallel cache data synchronisation with Oracle Database 11g, enhanced data access interfaces for applications and improved query processing and optimisation to boost response time and overall throughput.
In addition, customers can use Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database to support analytic workloads through new SQL aggregation and analytic functions as well as optimisation for complex query processing; and can benefit from improved compatibility with Oracle Database through support for native large object (LOB) data type support (BLOB, CLOB).
Oracle Development vice president Marie-Anne Neimat said for over a decade Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database has been delivering the extreme performance and scalability that businesses trust to speed their critical transactions.
"We are very excited that the new release enhances Oracle TimesTen’s OLTP capabilities and introduces support for BI and analytic applications thus enabling many new applications to take advantage of real-time in-memory data management," said Neimat.
