Oracle will announce the next iteration of its database at the September show.

Oracle Corp. will announce the next iteration of its bread-and-butter Oracle9i database at OracleWorld in September, company contacts today confirmed. The upgrade is being called Oracle10i by everybody in the database community except Oracle itself, which insists that neither the products final name nor pricing details has yet been determined.
Oracle10i is a large evolutionary leap from Oracle9i. Rumors and confirmed features include hyped speed, scalability that will support petabyte databases, enhanced XML database and Web services support, expanded clustering support, and additional grid-computing features.
