Speaker: Shasank Chavan Title: Hardware Acceleration with Oracle Database In-Memory

“Hardware acceleration of database workloads on modern hardware has been at the forefront of Oracle’s Database organization for many years - ever since the acquisition of Sun Microsystems and the development of Exadata Engineered Systems. With the arrival of Oracle Database In-Memory option, analytic workloads were drastically accelerated in part by leveraging SIMD instructions in modern processors. Oracle innovated one step further by supplying a custom ASIC on Sun Microsystems M7/M8 processors where database operations on a column store (e.g. decompression and scans) could be offloaded to. Recently with the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) hardware accelerator cards such as GPUs are now readily available. We are starting to look at SQL offload to these hardware accelerators (GPUs and FPGAs), and this talk will go into some detail on what that exactly entails, along with what has currently been done in industry and academia”.
