Preface

The Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database provides application-tier database and transaction management built on a memory-optimized architecture accessed through industry-standard interfaces. Optional data replication and Oracle caching extend the product to enable multi-node and multitier configurations that exploit the full performance potential of today's networked, memory-rich computing platforms.

The TimesTen CD contains a readme.html file that is the latest version of the release notes. These notes list product information and late changes to the printed documentation.
