Conventioneers took over part of San Francisco’s South of Market Area (SoMA) last week for Oracle OpenWorld 2018. SingleStore hosted a booth on the show floor and a party across the street from the main venue, cheekily dubbed “The Backup & Recovery Happy Hour”.
We used the occasion to highlight three key takeaways for Oracle users:
In ironic contradistinction to the trade show name, Oracle strongly promoted Oracle Cloud, their closed ecosystem – and the only cloud program with optimized Oracle. They also announced an update to the Oracle Autonomous Database, which uses AI to help provide security and other manageability features. “We’ve added lots and lots of more robots to protect every aspect of the cloud,” said Larry Ellison, Oracle cofounder and CTO. (We think he meant “bots”, which are software, rather than a software/hardware combination.)
