Changes to TimesTen Licensing

We have made some small changes to the way in which TimesTen is licensed to make it more flexible and better suited to our customers' needs. For details on the new licensing see the TimesTen Licensing Guide

All new VirtualBox VM for TimesTen

A completely new VirtualBox VM featuring TimesTen 18.1 and Oracle Database 18c. This VM makes it easy to experiment with, and learn about, TimesTen - Classic, Cache and Scaleout - in realistic 'multi host' configurations all within a single VM. The VM includes pre-defined and scripted scenarios plus Hands-on-Labs covering all three deployment modes.

The VM image will also be available on in due course.

Support for Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory in 'memory mode'

We've tested TimesTen with Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory configured in 'memory mode' and as expected it works just fine. Customers can use systems with this type of memory to support much larger in-memory databases than is typically possible using regular DRAM.

GoldenGate Certification

TimesTen 18.1 is certified as a supported delivery target for Oracle GoldenGate 19.1. All TimesTen deployment modes are supported.

GoldenGate provides an alternative mechanism for using TimesTen as a read-only in-memory cache, including for source databases other than Oracle Database.
