    Why Oracle Needs To Embrace WebScaleSQL

    In theory, Oracle owns the code for MySQL, which is still the world's most popular open-source database.

    Oracle’s Quixotic Quest To Beat Amazon At The Commodity Game

    It has been a few weeks since Oracle CEO Larry Ellison publicly challenged Amazon Web Services (AWS), declaring that Oracle would be "price competitive" in the "commodity infrastructure as a service marketplace."

    Maybe Oracle Isn’t The MySQL Villain So Many People Think

    For those still struggling to understand open source, the fracas over Oracle's handling of MySQL won't help.

    Oracle Claims Second-Largest Software Company Title

    Yesterday's rather unpleasant IBM 3Q earnings report did little to shake the conventional wisdom that IBM is in need of some serious mojo to turn itself around as software and hardware revenue continues to decline.So perhaps it seems a little cruel to take this opportunity to mention that in terms...

    News Flash: Oracle Still Hates Open Source Software

    It's no wonder that Google, Red Hat and others have been abandoning Oracle's most visible open-source project, MySQL. After all, Oracle has a highly conflicted relationship with open source.

    Oracle Plays Catch-Up With New ‘In-Memory’ Database Technology

    Oracle CEO Larry Ellison talked up the release of Oracle's new in-memory database technology Sunday night in his opening keynote of Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco, but was oddly non-confrontational when it came to trash-talking the biggest potential competitor in this space, SAP.In-memory databases—such as SAP's rival HANA database appliance—use...
