MySQL Query Attributes
By Jesper Krogh
Larry Ellison's quote:
"MySQL plus HeatWave processes queries hundreds of times faster. Seriously, hundreds of times faster than the current version of MySQL by itself and other MySQL compatible databases such as Amazon’s Aurora. MySQL plus HeatWave is so much faster, so much easier to use and less expensive than Postgres, Redshift, Snowflake or any other database available on Amazon AWS."

Larry Ellison, Chairman, CTO, Oracle
Customer highlights: HeatWave quotes
"HeatWave is 10 times faster than the analytics service of another major cloud vendor. Now there is no need for ETL. Compared to MySQL on-premises, HeatWave is 4,000 times faster.”

Tetsuro Ikeda,
Manager of Cloud IT Architecture, Service Department,
SCSK Corporation
"We discovered astonishing performance improvements during our tests of the new HeatWave, reducing query times from hours to seconds in cases of non-index based queries. This enables us to expand our service and open the door to many more analytics-based capabilities while maintaining a single, seamless database platform.”

Dr. Jens Uecker, Senior Key Expert, Siemens Healthineers
