>> Talk one: George will talk about hardware specialization trends for analytics, available through open source projects. More on this talk soon.

>> Talk two: Lucas will talk about the fundamental capabilities of in-memory computing platforms that specifically boost high-load applications and services. These cost-effective capabilities bring existing IT architecture to the next level by storing and processing massive quantities of data both in RAM and, optionally, on disk.

>> Talk three: (Doug) As byte addressable persistent memory will soon be available, how should In-Memory Databases best use this technology? Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database was the first commercial In-Memory Database (1998). Given Oracle's 20 years of experience with In-Memory Databases, what are their thoughts on Persistent Memory? See demos of TimesTen In-Memory Database using multiple TB of Persistent Memory.
