In-Memory Databases / The SAP Future ?

One of SAP's co-founders seems to have a new hobbyhorse. Wherever Hasso Plattner appears in the media, a keyword soon comes up: in-memory computing.

This refers to a technique that no longer requires data to be retrieved from a Database on a hard disk, but to keep them in the working memory. The advantage is obvious: speed. With response times of less than one second, huge databases can be searched. At least that is the vision.

Plattner has already achieved one thing with his initiative: he has scared off the competition:
Larry Ellisson of the ORACLE CEO was quoted by COMPUTERWORLD as even suspecting the German flagship entrepreneur of drug use.


"Get me the name of their pharmacist," Ellison said at the time. "I mean, I know a lot about in-memory databases. In fact, we have the leading in-memory database, TimesTen. This is nonsense. There is no in-memory technology anywhere near ready to take the place of a relational database. It's a complete fantasy on their part.".."


Now Hasso Plattner has responded, and rather hilariously . In a video posted on the website for the SAP business and technology congress SAPPHIRE® NOW was published.

Your turn Larry !
