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.
