Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
ProHuddle, a Podcast about Enterprise IT, Software, Oracle, Databases and The Cloud
In this episode, I hosted Toon Koppelaars to talk about smart database architecture. Toon has been part of the Oracle eco-system since 1987. He is currently a member of Oracle's Real World Performance team. Toon is a long-time champion of using the database in a smart way, i.e. using the database as a processing engine.
In this session Toon goes through a bit of history demonstrating how the database has been used in the past 30 years: at times it was a processing engine and at times it was just a persistance layer. Toon then goes on to explain that the persistence layer approach, where all business logic is implemented outside the database has serious drawbacks in the areas of initial application development, ongoing maintenance, and most notably in the area of performance and scalability.
