Just the facts

Nick Salem of Neustar and Steve Pierce of Think Huddle share their realized performance benchmarks using Oracle Spatial and Graph.  With the Oracle Spatial and Graph option of Database 12c, customers can address the largest geospatial workloads and experience performance increases of 50 to 300 times for common vector analysis operations.  With just a small set of configuration changes – and no changes to application code – applications can realize these significant performance improvements.  In addition, new parallel capabilities enable raster operations that are hundreds of times faster using parallel hardware architectures. 

In this webinar you will

  • Hear performance benchmark results from Oracle Spatial and Graph customers
  • Learn about Oracle Spatial and Graph performance features for both vector and raster operations in the Database 12c release
  • Learn how engineered systems deliver parallelism and massive processing power to Oracle Spatial and Graph systems
  • Learn tips for accelerating performance and running benchmarks with your own applications on your own systems

More details

Experts from Oracle, Neustar and Think Huddle will share benchmark results for Oracle Spatial and Graph in the Database 12c release for functions such as:

  • Commonly used vector operations-- aggregation, distance and containment operations
  • Geocoding using parallelism
  • Raster operations using parallelism
