Replay Technologies and Workload Intelligence

Technological progress is rapid and inevitable. Hence, change in modern IT environments is the only constant. Companies must stay up-to-date to maintain competitive systems as technology progresses. However, the reality is that adoption of new technology can be cumbersome and risky. Not many effective tools can reassure companies that new technology adoption will not negatively impact day-to-day business operations. The Oracle RDBMS is the only RDBMS that provides effective tools to help with new technology adoption. Our mission is to provide tools to allow IT infrastructure operators to answer the following questions with high confidence: Will my system continue to function properly after I apply change X? How much better performance can I expect if I adopt feature Y? To accomplish our mission, we have developed technology that allows the recording of production workload containing the full content of real user interaction with a company’s IT infrastructure. Using the production workload, our features in Oracle Database allow the replay of the user workload on a system that represents the new technologically more advanced system. Repeated replay sessions can identify and remedy problems. Starting from Oracle 11g, features such as Database Replay and SQL Performance Analyzer give Oracle customers a competitive edge in new technology adoption and a glimpse of the exciting future work in the replay technologies area. Using SPA, the user can proactively assess the impact on individual SQL of any change in the RDBMS infrastructure. Using Database Replay, the full force of a production workload can be unleashed on a staging system that uses new technologies that need to be proven reliable before deployment in production. Replay technologies closely collaborate with Database Manageability to fine-tune operation of autonomic technologies using real workloads. Our group filed at least 10 patents for the technologies released in Oracle Database 11g; we regularly publish papers in well-respected database conferences (SIGMOD, VLDB); and we have many fun outings (annual ski trip, rafting, go-karting, and more). We are constantly exploring groundbreaking ideas. Many problems still are unsolved; a lot of research is still ahead. In our group, you get to take charge and be involved in the entire development process, from research to design, coding, and release. We seek intelligent, highly motivated engineers to help build unique technological solutions and have fun doing so as a team.
Secure Enterprise Search

Google may be known for delivering search technologies to the individual user, but Oracle excels in enterprise search. “One of our biggest announcements in many, many years.”—Larry Ellison, Oracle Chief Executive Officer, introducing Oracle Secure Enterprise Search at OpenWorld Tokyo 2006 Would you like to join a team of search experts and change the way everyone in the world finds information inside their enterprise? Enterprise search is a nascent field which is growing rapidly, and Oracle is poised to take advantage of the strengths of our enterprise

platform and our Information Retrieval (IR) platform to present a simple, yet powerful search paradigm to the enterprise. We seek software developers to develop the next-generation architecture for search. Enterprise search has challenges beyond standard Web search—unique issues with accessing all the content, auditing, deployment, and administration in the enterprise. For example, page citations are typically less reliable for enterprise search, as Web page cross-referencing is not as prevalent in the intranet, and therefore alternate techniques must be applied. We quantify precision, recall, and hit rank based on both objective and subjective measures of relevance. Based on these quantifications, we identify and implement algorithms and heuristics that improve search quality for enterprise search. We also work on a wide range of relevancy improvement techniques such as social search and personalization based on your role within the enterprise. We constantly publish papers and develop intellectual property in the field. One unique challenge in the enterprise is security. Secure search capabilities place Oracle Secure Enterprise Search ahead of the competition. Tough to solve: how to deliver highly relevant results quickly in a secure fashion, honoring access privileges of information sources, and using user identities and roles to further improve search quality. Our applications are developed using SOA, making use of Web Services and associated Web technologies. From an application perspective, we focus on high performance through distributed computing techniques. We also use emerging technologies such as Ajax to devise unique visualization techniques for bringing a highly intuitive and useful enterprise search experience to our customers. In addition to developing the search application, we work closely with other Oracle IT to deploy search solutions throughout the Oracle intranet, tapping into real-world experiences to improve our product offering.

Semantic Web Database Technologies New England Development Center
Projects at Oracle

Semantic Web database technologies make data smarter, allowing machine-driven understanding of the relationships between data and discovery of new relationships. The W3C has introduced languages to standardize the representation, vocabulary, inferencing, and querying of relationships in the data. Semantic technologies are evolving quickly and moving from the domain of early adopters to general use in a variety of industries. Oracle Database provides native semantic data-management capabilities to do the following: • Store rich relationships with data that go beyond traditional rows, columns, table joins, and Boolean relationships. This allows users to better model and discover complex real-world relationships in the data to obtain more semantically complete information for decisionmaking. It is accomplished using the W3C standard RDF graph data model and the rich relationship semantics of the RDFS/OWL languages, integrated and optimized on the Oracle object-relational model for scalability, reliability, security, and performance. • Natively inference among the predefined relationships in the data to discover new relationships, guided by ontologies of related terms and concepts, and use RDFS/OWL and user-defined rules. This new inferred data is persisted in the database for faster querying. • Query based on patterns of relationships, using the W3C SPARQL query language with partner and open source tools or relational SQL queries containing SPARQL-like queries.

Projects at Oracle

Work is ongoing with C, Java, XML, SOA, database and application server technologies, and W3C standards to address the needs of a broad range of industries, including government, defense and intelligence, life sciences, clinical medicine and research, banking, publishing, and telecommunications. Oracle works with leading third-party semantic technology tools, applications and services providers, open source technologies, and active participation in the W3C standards body to meet our customers’ business-critical application needs. We seek developers familiar with W3C graph data languages, including RDF, OWL and SPARQL; reasoning, including first-order logic and description logic; network analytics, visualization, and management of graph data; and domain ontologies, taxonomies, and vocabularies.
Server Technologies Performance

Performance is critical to all customers; our group helps make Oracle the world’s fastest database. We are responsible for improving, measuring, and analyzing the performance of Oracle Database. We focus on database algorithms but also investigate operating system, compiler, and hardware issues that affect database performance. We look at all kinds of workloads, including transaction processing, decision support, data mining, OLAP, ERP and CRM applications, Java, and customer workloads. Our projects range from low-level, path-length optimizations to high-level algorithm changes that allow Oracle to scale well on the largest systems. We also produce performance-related white papers and demonstrate record-setting benchmark results. Are you interested in getting the best out of the latest hardware architectures—SMP, MPP, NUMA, or clusters—using the most sophisticated database technology? Do you want to work with the latest and greatest hardware under development? If so, this is the place to be.
Storage Engine (Space Management, Data Storage, Transaction Processing)

We design and develop the storage engine for Oracle Database. Work in this area is a confluence of systems (particularly file systems and clustered-server systems), algorithms, and database technology. We provide the unique opportunity to develop new algorithms and then apply them in the world’s most successful server product. You can solve extremely complex, challenging problems that draw on every aspect of your computer science background. This is hard stuff, and we do it better than anyone else in the world. If you are excited by the challenge posed by difficult problems and the creative satisfaction from being an innovator, consider us. Within the Storage Engine group, we have three core teams: Space Management Team. People want to store everything on disks—books, pictures, health records, music, videos, everything. Disks are getting bigger. Disks are getting cheaper. But disks are not getting much faster or easier to manage. At the core of Oracle’s business is its ability to store data and do it in a high-performance, scalable, reliable, and manageable way. Now consider that we need to do this just as well for an exabyte of data. Disk space management is a fundamental component of the RDBMS that provides an abstraction to the database storage subsystem. Disk space requirements for the database are primarily of two kinds—temporary scratch space required to store multimedia results generated in the database and persistent storage used to store user data. From managing the temporary space for sorting a terabyte of data to finding the best slot in the petabyte volume disk for storing the next piece of employee payroll information, intelligent disk space management is one of the foundations for high-performance OLTP and data warehouse systems. Disk space management needs vary for different kinds of data stored in the database. Storing a streaming video has different requirements than storing product item names. Developing

Enterprise Content Management

Projects at Oracle

Enterprise content management (ECM) is a critical element of information management— balancing the explosion of unstructured digital content such as electronic documents, e-mails, images, and video with the need to manage, secure, and retain that information as part of business practices or to meet regulatory guidelines. Oracle Enterprise Content Management is the industry’s leading unified content management platform, providing all aspects of ECM—document management, Web content management, digital asset management, records management, and image management—within a single application. Using the service-oriented architecture of the Oracle content management platform, organizations can effectively manage, secure, and retain critical information. The Oracle ECM Team seeks talented developers who understand the key technologies and methodologies of the Oracle Fusion Middleware stack (Java, Java EE, JSF, XML, SOA) and are interested in helping drive the next generation of information management at Oracle. As the ECM platform is largely based on the acquired technologies from Stellent, many of the projects on the ECM Team relate to bringing the high-value services of the ECM system into the broader Oracle Fusion Middleware stack so they can be used across Oracle applications. Our team also seeks product managers (PMs) who understand the technology of Oracle Fusion Middleware and are eager to learn the quickly changing markets of ECM, rights management, and records management. ECM PMs serve as both product and industry experts, and with our unified platform, we strive to have not only the broadest ECM capability in the overall ECM market but also the deepest in any specific functional or specialty area.
