Oracle X

badarrow Barbara Darrow Profile: badarrow’s Barney Beal pointed out the big ‘X Is Coming’ signs that have sprouted up in and around Moscone Center at Oracle OpenWorld today.

In this case, X must equal the game-changing, revolutionary, paradigm-shifting, barn-burning, kill-SQL-Server-or-MySQL-in-their-crib database innovation that Larry Ellison et al have been hinting about for more than six months.

It pains me to write  I have no clue what this is. One Oracle partner surmises it may be some sort of database appliance to take on very powerful offerings from Netezza or Green Plum.

I guess the word will be out about 5 p.m. tomorrow Pacific time.
