Nice riposte by Doug. You can't throw a bunch of flash into a box and say "look we have in-memory also." SAP is out front on this one and both Oracle and Microsoft are playing catch-up. Oracle can spin it however they wish, but they need to get their own house in order before accusing others of talking vapor.
