April 8, 2008 - Oracle announced the availability of Oracle In-Memory Database Cache, a new option for Oracle Database Enterprise Edition.


Based on the Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database, the new option delivers a real-time, updatable cache for frequently accessed data in the Oracle Database. By caching performance-critical subsets of an Oracle Database in main memory in the application tier, the software reduces application response times and increases throughput by relying on memory-optimized algorithms and avoiding communication delays between computers and processes.


For performance-critical applications in industries such as communications, financial services and defense, the Oracle In-Memory Database Cache option delivers application response times by bringing the frequently accessed data closer to the application and by executing SQL requests in the TimesTen In-Memory Database.


The new Oracle In-Memory Database Cache option is compatible and integrated with Oracle Database Enterprise Edition, including Oracle Real Application Clusters and also supports Oracle Enterprise Manager, Oracle SQL Developer and components of Oracle Fusion Middleware.
