Intel Corp announced that Oracle Corp developed and optimized its latest database, Oracle Database 10g Release 2, on Intel's latest Intel Xeon processor with Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology using Intel software development tools.
Oracle used the Intel C++ and Fortran Compilers 8.1 for Windows and Linux, and Intel VTune Performance Analyzer for Windows and Linux to develop and optimize Oracle Database 10g Release 2. Oracle also plans to use Intel software tools to develop and optimize the performance of future database products running on Intel platforms, including Intel Xeon with Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology, and Intel Itanium 2 processor-based systems.
"The performance enhancements and cross-architecture support we experienced resulted in Oracle's decision to invest in Intel software tools and promote them across our global developer base," said Prem Kumar, vice president pf the Server Technologies Division at Oracle Corp. "Intel's investment in a broad suite of developer tools allows us to continue to optimize Oracle 10g products for Intel processor-based platforms that our customers purchase."
"Oracle's database built using Intel software development tools offers customers outstanding performance, scalability and reliability for the most demanding enterprise solutions on Intel platforms," said Jonathan Khazam, general manager of Intel Software Development Products. "Intel is pleased to be Oracle's development tools provider helping to extend its strong position on Intel-based server platforms."
A compiler translates a high-level programming language, such as C++ or FORTRAN, into machine language the processor can understand. The Intel VTune Performance Analyzer looks at existing applications and suggests ways to further enhance application performance. Using an efficient compiler and powerful performance analyzer is important for helping software run at top speeds.
