Edward Screven – Chief Corporate Architect of Oracle provided the
opening keynote at the 2010 MySQL Users Conference.
Overall I was disappointed. The first half was more an Oracle
Sales pitch, we had some product announcements, we had some 5.5
performance buzz. While a few numbers and features were indeed
great to hear, there was a clear lack of information to the MySQL
ecosystem including employees, alumni and various support
services. I hope more is unveiled this week.
Some notes of the session.
- Oracle’s Strategy covers storage, servers, virtual machines,
operating system, database, middleware, applications
- We build a complete technology stack that is “open” and
“integrated” based on “open standards”
- products talk via open standards with the intention for
customers to not feel locked in to any technology
