  In-memory, In the News

Oracle made news recently with its big in-memory announcement – and, as you might imagine, we had some thoughts.

In InformationWeek’s “Oracle In-Memory Option: 6 Key Points,” Ryan Betts and other industry experts shared their perspectives.

Over at InfoWorld, they’re talking SQL and NoSQL in “Not so fast, NoSQL -- SQL still reigns.” The article discusses recent survey results that indicate that “SQL databases are going strong, and NoSQL is the accompaniment, not the replacement.” Our very own Mike Stonebraker offers his take.
