It mimics the close pairing of data and logic execution that such cloud providers as Google use with MapReduce technologies.

In essence, this architecture mimics some of the performance value created by cloud computing environments like Google, with its MapReduce technology.

In summary, Oracle sees virtualization technology as just another tool organizations can use to increase the performance, reliability, scalability, agility and/or manageability of their IT infrastructure.

SAP Does CPM: Et Tu, Oracle

SAP has fired back at Oracle, in rather short order, with the acquisition of OutlookSoft, a corporate performance management vendor based in Stamford, Conn. It looks like short order of course, as Oracle announced its Hyperion acquisition a scant two months ago.
