100% Developed, Managed and Supported by the Oracle MySQL and Oracle Labs Team

Duration: 90min

Everyone is talking about the cloud, a good reason to dive into the database side of it.

Oracle has made huge progress in the past 10 years and MySQL now plays at a very different level than back in the old times. Today, MySQL is the one of the most commonly used databases. This is particularity true for databases used in the Cloud. Earlier in 2020 MySQL launched the new MySQL Database Service built on Gen 2 Cloud Infrastructure. Oracle MySQL Database Service is a fully managed database service that enables organizations to deploy cloud native applications using the world’s most popular open source database. It is 100% developed, managed, and supported by the MySQL team.

On top of this Service MySQL is going to offer a dedicated Analytics Service called MySQL HeatWave. This new unique service offers a single platform for all of your OLTP & OLAP/analytics needs. Customers can now run all their OLTP and analytics workloads with MySQL without the need to move their data out of MySQL or without, MySQL HeatWave offers extreme performance in real time due its in Memory Machine learning based automation. It can scale to hundreds of cores and provides around 500x speedup over MySQL requiring any change to their application.
