Abstract: 

With the increased popularity of flash technologies, flash-based solutions such as all-flash arrays and PCIe-based flash servers promise significant performance improvement for online transaction processing (OLTP) databases. However, applications have to be cognizant of the complexities of flash-based technologies and must adapt to extract the maximum benefit from these technologies. This session offers an inside view of how Oracle has embraced flash in its architecture to deliver DRAM level performance with increased availability. It highlights how database- and content-aware usage of flash technologies can maximize database performance while maintaining transactional consistency and high availability.
