Oracle's Souder Talks Distributed Databases

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From CRN]

Some might say Benny Souder's title, vice president of distributed database development at Oracle, is an oxymoron.

After all, Oracle sure seems wants everything in the world to be in one huge (Oracle) database. At least that's what Microsoft and IBM say. That's even what Oracle chairman Larry Ellison also often says when he speaks about the company he founded.

But don't get Souder started on that subject, which he says competitors have blown out of proportion. "What we say is if you can consolidate information, you will probably be able to save money," he said in a recent interview. "There are many reasons you may not be able to consolidate--you may have legacy systems on a proprietary platform...I don't think there's a single large corporation today that runs on just one database."
