JavaOne keynote tips news of NoSQL platform from Oracle

03 Oct 2011

Today is the beginning of two major conferences: Oracle's OpenWorld and the JavaOne event in downtown San Francisco.

As one might expect, the two shows are sharing a few pieces of news, among them the unveiling of a new NoSQL platform.

Ashok Joshi, senior director of Oracle's NoSQL development group, took to the stage on Monday and gave a sneak peek at the project. While few details were given, Joshi described NoSQL as a highly scalable, highly available database which could be expanded to handle massive databases.

Joshi, who was on the stage mainly to outline partnership programmes between Intel and Oracle, mentioned that, during testing at Intel's Oregon labs, the platform had been deployed on server clusters with as many as 96 processor nodes.

At its peak, Joshi said the platform had been tested against a system containing 2.1 billion records.

We expect to hear more about NoSQL later this week as OpenWorld progresses.
