My latest article on Oracle Database 12c features has just been published in the 2015Q1 edition of IOUG SELECT Journal. Entitled A Go-Faster Button: In-Memory Column Store in Oracle 18.104.22.168, it dives relatively deeply into the features of Oracle 22.214.171.124’s In-Memory Column Store, including a discussion on the concepts behind those features and extensive source code for demonstrating its efficiency.
If you’re an IOUG member, you can view it immediately; I will be posting a PDF version of the article early next week on my blog’s Articles page. And while you are at it, check out IOUG SELECT Journal’s brand-new, all-electronic format! It makes it super-easy to read articles, look up listings, and browse other content on just about any mobile device, laptop, or e-device.
