New In-Memory Applications Run 10 to 20 Times Faster on Oracle Engineered Systems

In April 2013, Oracle unveiled its new in-memory applications, which deliver 10X to 20X performance increases running on Oracle’s engineered systems, compared to commodity hardware.

Taking advantage of dynamic random-access memory (DRAM), flash memories, and the near-zero latency InfiniBand network fabric of Oracle’s engineered systems, Oracle’s in-memory applications help improve user interface rendering and transform batch processes into near real-time processes.

"The release of Oracle’s in-memory applications will help organizations not only complete load runs faster, but also discover new insights for efficiencies that would have been previously overlooked," explains Steve Miranda, executive vice president of application development, Oracle.

Accelerating Business Performance
By increasing performance and speeding key processes, Oracle’s in-memory applications help organizations free up IT resources and drive down energy and other operating costs. In addition, faster performance helps uncover growth opportunities more quickly, helping drive smarter, faster decision-making.

"With runtime no longer an issue, executives can now generate complex data crunching analysis in near real time to make sound decisions and solve critical business problems," says Willie Hardie, vice president, server technologies product management.
