What are industry experts saying about HeatWave?

Constellation logo

“The evolution of MySQL continues as Oracle accelerates developer velocity. Oracle previously provided a single unified platform for both OLTP and OLAP, eliminating the need for multiple databases and tools to ETL across databases. Now Oracle brings out new innovations which are set to likely disrupt the market, significantly lifting the expectations for what open source cloud databases should be. With machine learning-based automation in Autopilot and scaling in memory, nodes, and storage, Oracle sets developers free to develop next generation applications running on the much faster and cheaper MySQL HeatWave compared to any platform they may try.”
—Holger Mueller, VP and Principal Analyst, Constellation Research

“Some cloud database providers continue to offer specialized databases for specific workloads, and assume, especially in the open source space, that developers like to manually tinker with parameters to optimize performance. Oracle is on a different track, looking to combine database functionality in a single system. It provides database convergence and automation in the open source cloud database service, MySQL HeatWave. Oracle introduced MySQL HeatWave late in 2020, bringing full native cloud support and unifying OLTP and OLAP in one database, which eliminated the need for ETL. In this newly announced version, Oracle has added machine learning-based automation, which takes away the guesswork and manual labor involved in provisioning, data loading, query execution, and failure handling. These automations are also a major factor in HeatWave’s performance and price/performance results as reported in the company’s publicly accessible and repeatable benchmarks, providing metrics which should compare favorably with those of other cloud database service providers.”
—Carl Olofson, Research Vice President, Data Management Software, IDC

IDC’s top database analyst, Carl Olofson, published his take on Oracle MySQL HeatWave news and concluded that “For MySQL database developers, this is a game changer."

“Oracle have shown AWS and Snowflake how to design and architect a True MySQL Cloud Database. Customers can expect MySQL Heatwave to perform about 7 times faster than Amazon Redshift or Snowflake at 2-5 times lower cost. The benefits against Amazon Aurora are even greater. Enterprises of every size can run a single MySQL database for both OLTP & OLAP and eliminate ETL. Lines of business can plan to integrate in-line real-time analytics with systems of record and radically improve business process automation and costs.”
—David Floyer, CTO and Co-Founder, Wikibon

Futurum Research

“These new fully transparent benchmarks demonstrate HeatWave’s performance, price and scale advantages over all other MySQL and cloud databases. With up to 7x the performance and 35x the price/performance of Snowflake —a fraction of the cost—you can see the 5 dozen patents at work with the whiplash-inducing performance of HeatWave. Clearly, the cloud data warehouse market wasn’t ready for this, and now the competition needs to scramble as they grapple for answers.”
—Ron Westfall, Senior Analyst and Research Director, Futurum

Moor Insights & Strategy logo

“For organizations using MySQL, Oracle has given yet another reason to invest in its HeatWave offering by delivering seven times the performance at 1/5th the cost of solutions such as Snowflake. Oracle continues to align its innovation and resources to the needs of its customers and the market. For those looking to extract the most out of their MySQL environments, HeatWave should be given a hard look.”
—Matt Kimball, Sr. Analyst, Data Center Compute, Moor Insights & Strategy

DS Consulting

“Open source developers who have not yet moved to MySQL Database Service with HeatWave are running out of reasons not to give it a try. Not only has Oracle simplified their lives with a unified OLTP and OLAP MySQL service, it has eliminated the need for a separate analytical database or data warehouse and ETLs between them. Plus, now it has delivered unparalleled performance and cost/performance. The latest additions include Autopilot, which has automated many onerous manual tasks from provisioning to data loading and query execution. Together with massive scale-out capabilities, this combination makes MySQL HeatWave melt down Snowflake and vaporize Amazon Redshift AQUA.”
—Marc Staimer, Founder and President of DS Consulting and Wikibon Analyst

“MySQL is a popular cloud relational database for mid-sized users and applications; but it has traditionally come with some limitations. Developers must suffer manual database setup and tuning as well as often poor performance running queries. That all changes now: Oracle’s MySQL Database Service with HeatWave addresses those issues--it's MySQL Autopilot uses advanced ML to automate provisioning, tuning and more, to drive crazy good performance and price/performance. Scalability is enhanced with node and processing capacity increases. With claimed specifications that are so far ahead of its competition as to simultaneously generate a broad grin and some skepticism, Oracle understands that the proof is in the pudding--not only is this open source, but the test case details are all being openly posted, meaning that interested MySQL users that are intrigued by a mix of astounding performance, reduced costs and no need to change applications, can actually go try the pudding for themselves”
—Mark Peters, Principal Analyst & Practice Director, ESG.

“The new capabilities that Oracle added to MySQL HeatWave take it to the forefront of open-source cloud databases. Not only are several management functions automated with Autopilot, making guesswork obsolete, when they are combined with new scaling enhancements, the resulting price/performance ratio is far beyond other cloud database services. As we mentioned previously, ETL presents significant security threats. HeatWave’s combining OLTP and OLAP into a single, protected database instance can dramatically reduce the potential attack surface, improve security posture, and in the end, avoid a data breach or a compliance fine.”
—Alexei Balaganski, Lead Analyst, KuppingerCole Analysts

OMDIA logo

“The latest MySQL HeatWave announcement reaffirms and extends Oracle's commitment to the open source database market. Integrated with MySQL Database and optimized for OCI, HeatWave seamlessly brings together analytic and operational workloads within one database and does without sacrificing scale or performance. More than that, MySQL HeatWave introduces several innovations that promise to greatly elevate MySQL's price/performance value. For example, by engineering internally developed machine learning algorithms within MySQL HeatWave, Oracle can now automate and optimize database provisioning, data loading, query execution, and failure handling. This is not easy to replicate.”
—Bradley Shimmin, Chief Analyst, AI Platforms, Analytics, and Data Management at Omdia
