“MySQL HeatWave on AWS is a very compelling solution not just for analytics but also for OLTP and mixed workloads, as may be seen in publicly available benchmarks. For any developers working with MySQL on AWS, Oracle has just dropped a big productivity boost on your doorstep without the big price tag.”

“HeatWave is the only cloud data lakehouse service to query data in object storage and in the database at the same speed, which has never been achieved before...Oracle simplifies the experience for users, removing the need to keep multiple copies of data across multiple object stores, paying for data movement and pipelines, all while shuffling critical data around.”



“MySQL HeatWave, now with Lakehouse, may be the most significant open source cloud database innovation in the last decade….MySQL HeatWave just took a giant leap by increasing the scale-out processing by a factor of 8x to 512 nodes. The ability of HeatWave to load and query data on such a massive number of nodes in parallel is the first in the industry. Expect it to spur a market focus on much lower cost/performance, accelerated innovation, and increased competition.”
