In the past 18 months I’ve researched and learned at least a dozen new (to me) and recent technologies. Any of them belongs to 2 interesting areas that I’ve focused in that period… Cloud and Mobile. I’m an early Amazon Web Services adopter and I’ve deployed several services and infrastructures on (more...)
Today at Amazon AWS re:invent, Amazon announced a cloud service for data warehouse customers. It allows to easily analyse petabytes of data, interacts with known BI solutions, and it’s usually 10 times faster than traditional implementations… queries run really blazing fast!

For several years I’ve been using Oracle and other SQL relational databases. I’ve dedicated most of the time of my researching and developing on Oracle technology.

More than 6 months after Oracle announced the Java Cloud and Database Cloud services at Oracle OpenWorld, we’re still waiting for these services to materialize.
