Oracle on Tuesday announced the next component of Oracle's autonomous database portfolio, the Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database.The fully-managed service is tuned for NoSQL applications requiring low latency, data model flexibility and elastic scaling. This could include shopping carts, online fraud detection, gaming or advertising. Developers can specify the throughput and capacity that they wish to provision, and resources are allocated and scaled accordingly to meet dynamic workload requirements. Oracle first introduced its autonomous database in October of last year, in conjunction with an automated cybersecurity system. Since then, the Silicon Valley giant has announced the general availability of the Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud and has rolled out an autonomous transaction processing service.With a suite of platform services that leverage machine learning and automation, Oracle is trying to build a cloud business that can chip away at Amazon Web Services' market lead. Oracle … [Read more...] about Oracle unveils Autonomous NoSQL Database service

Oracle Executive Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison said in a press statement that the world’s 'first self-managing, self-securing, self-repairing database cloud service", Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud, uses machine learning to deliver industry-leading performance, security capabilities, and availability with no human intervention, at half the cost of Amazon Web Services. “This technology changes everything,” said Ellison. “The Oracle Autonomous Database is based on technology as revolutionary as the Internet. It patches, tunes, and updates itself. Amazon’s databases cost more and do less.” Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud delivers all of the analytical capabilities, security features, and high availability of the Oracle Database without any of the complexities of configuration, tuning, and administration -- even as warehousing workloads and data volumes change. The autonomous database is an entirely new class of offering which … [Read more...] about Oracle redefines cloud database category ‘world’s first autonomous database’
Despite being filled with Oracle veterans, Salesforce.com can’t seem to stop flirting with rival databases, with reports surfacing that the SaaS vendor has made “significant progress” to move away from Oracle with its own homegrown database. This comes on the heels of Salesforce adding to its investment in NoSQL database leader MongoDB, which compounds the company’s long-standing interest in PostgreSQL.With Silicon Valley at the vanguard of change, Salesforce’s infidelity to Oracle could be a sign of, or at least a spark to, a broader shift in enterprise database decisions.This looking beyond Oracle shouldn’t be happeningOracle has dominated the database industry for decades, using that heft to catapult it into enterprise applications and other adjacent markets. Lately, however, the wheels seem to be wobbling on its database gravy train. As Gartner analyst Merv Adrian has made clear, although Oracle still has a commanding lead in database market … [Read more...] about How PostgreSQL just might replace your Oracle database
NoSQL databases provide high operational speed and increased flexibility for software developers and other users when compared to traditional tabular (or SQL) databases.The data structures used by NoSQL databases—key-value, wide column, graph, or document—differ from those used by relational databases. As a result, NoSQL databases. NoSQL databases can be scaled across thousands of servers, though sometimes with loss of data consistency. But what makes NoSQL databases especially relevant today is that they are particularly well suited for working with large sets of distributed data, which makes them a good choice for big data and analytics projects.How to choose a NoSQL database: Key factorsWith more than two dozen open source and commercial NoSQL databases in the market, how do you choose the right product or cloud service?One vital factor is to know the purpose to which you want to put the data, says Carl Olofson, an IDC research vice president.NoSQL databases vary in … [Read more...] about How to choose the right NoSQL database
Serverless computing, a concept that has started gaining traction in the last two years, is all about shifting focus to applications that require no infrastructure management and consume resources only for the seconds for which they are active. In the public cloud space, serverless usually translates to solutions where the provider dynamically manages the allocation of server resources based on workload requirements. AWS Lambda led the way, with Microsoft Azure Functions (and others) quickly catching up. Pricing for serverless frameworks is generally based on the actual amount of resources consumed by the application, instead of prepurchased capacity. As these serverless solutions for stateless applications gain popularity and adoption in next-generation software architectures, where does that leave the relational database? Still a crucial component for many, if not most, applications.For the past several years, you have had several robust and well-proven models to choose from … [Read more...] about Is serverless computing a game-changer for the relational database market?
