New Interesting Features in Oracle

So there are a couple of interesting new features in the latest Oracle DB version, which is

1) In-Memory Columnar Option — Some more info here at Ludovico Caldara’s blog:

2) Advanced Index Compression — Info here at Richard Foote’s blog (along with a series of great articles on indexing in Oracle):

I will be looking into further research on both of these options — particularly the in-memory columnar option — and will try and post something in the next few weeks or month (going to be really busy at least the next two weeks.)
