Last week I attended Oracle OpenWorld conference in San Francisco, CA. One thing that struck me was the number of claims about imaginary records broken by Oracle – starting with the Larry’s keynote on Sunday and continuing every day on technical tracks. Here are few things that were announced by Oracle in the past week:
- New version of the Exadata machine X3-2 (shipment date is unknown)
- New version of the Exalogic machine X3-2 (shipment date is unknown)
- Oracle Database and Java public and private cloud services (available now)
- Oracle Database 12c pre-announcement (to be shipped “sometime in 2013”)
