Oracle Database 11g: The SecureFiles Feature is not “Fast Files”, But Could Be Quite Fast

In my recent post about Oracle Database 11g SecureFiles, I referred to a July 11, 2007 press release that insinuated a name change from SecureFiles to Fast Files.

I just received email from one of the Program Managers (perhaps the 11g Program Manager—I’ll have to ask him) who set me straight that the feature is indeed called SecureFiles.

The press piece I refered to was in error.

As an aside, I’m chomping at the bits to do my own testing on just how much faster it is to store LOBs using the  SecureFiles feature than in a traditional file system. As I’ve pointed out, I hope it is better. Having more unstructured data support inside the database is a really good thing.
