Oracle has said it has a game-changing announcement coming on the 31st January that will provide a "dramatic leap in storage technology" for enterprise data centres.
There have been no details officially realised by the compnay as of yet, but there has been speculation that new technology is involved.
"We can't tell you just how much this will improve your data centre until the big event," the company's website states. But customers will experience greatly reduced costs per terabyte as well as lower floor space; "dramatically higher performance; and "greater capability optimised for archive and data protection."
No further details have been released by Oracle. One potential clue to the announcement's route is the fact that the webcast will be hosted by Jim Cates, an Oracle vice president of hardware development.
As of July, Cates was made vice president of tape development. Oracle announced a series of upgrades to its StorageTek tape storage portfolio at that time. However, it was not clear Thursday whether Cates is still Oracle's point man for tape.
