MySQL HeatWave—New Machine Learning Capabilities

Tuesday, March 29, 2022 | Original broadcast

Announcing new machine learning capabilities in MySQL HeatWave

Oracle MySQL HeatWave is the only MySQL cloud database service with a built-in, high-performance, in-memory query accelerator—eliminating the need for complex, time-consuming, expensive ETL and integration with a separate analytics database.

Continuing to innovate on MySQL, Oracle introduces HeatWave ML—native, in-database machine learning (ML) capabilities that eliminate the need to move data to a separate machine learning tool and automate model training, generate inferences, and provide prediction explanations. It’s now easier, faster, more accurate, more secure, and more cost-effective for developers to incorporate machine learning into MySQL applications.

Watch the announcement and learn about all the latest enhancements—including real-time elasticity and data compression—to take the most advantage of MySQL HeatWave capabilities.

Oracle Senior Vice President Nipun Agarwal demonstrates the new, real-time elasticity of MySQL HeatWave. Customers can increase or decrease the size of their HeatWave cluster by any number of nodes without incurring any downtime or read-only time.

“We recently had an opportunity to use the machine learning capabilities of HeatWave ML. We found it very innovative, easy-to-use, very fast and most important it is secure since the data or the model don’t leave the database.”

Arvind Rajan Cofounder and CEO, Astute Business Solutions

“With the addition of HeatWave ML demonstrating up to 25X the speed of Redshift ML at 1% of the price, the MySQL HeatWave cloud service is not just a game changer, but represents a whole new engineering trajectory for cloud databases going forward.”

Marc Staimer Senior Analyst, Wikibon

“For developers, HeatWave ML is a time saver, accelerating their app development velocity, increasing model accuracy.”

Holger Mueller Vice President and Principal Analyst, Constellation Research

“Oracle’s HeatWave ML democratizes machine learning by automating the machine learning lifecycle—model training, inference, and explanations—and brings ML into HeatWave, no ETL required... As far as I’m aware, no other cloud provider goes this far with their ML when it comes to automation, explainability, or in providing ML benchmarks using standard data sets.”
