Ten years ago (2009) in September, I was ordered to set up the Taobao technical support department at that time. Then I started the technical budget work in 2010. When I first reported the budget to Dr. Wang Jian, then the group’s chief architect, I proudly said: “in 2010, Taobao will no longer buy minicomputers”, which was severely criticized by Dr. Wang: “since it can no longer buy in 2010 Why do you want to leave a living margin for yourself when you buy a minicomputer, and you can buy it after 2011? Add one word: no more minicomputers from 2010! “
As a result, the controversial “de IOE” project was launched in the following years.
In May 2010, Zhengxiang was invited to join Taobao, which opened the road of independent research and development of oceanbase.
All kinds of opposition, satire and sarcasm In retrospect, it was torture, pain and tears. Today, it’s a legend and a joke.
In October 2019, oceanbase TPC-C ranked first in the world! Congratulations to Zhengxiang and ob team.
Today, we are proud to say that the second generation of Alibaba’s digital economy has finally solved the database problem, which is one of the three major weaknesses of information technology (“CPU chip, operating system, database”) that has plagued the country for a long time. Oceanbase is 100% self-developed, safe and controllable!
From the launch of “going to IOE” in 2009 to taking the first place in TPC-C world by oceanbase in 2019, there are countless times that oceanbase may die in the long time of this decade. It is a remarkable miracle to persist to this day.
The first step is to greatly surpass Oracle in performance. We look forward to the efforts in the next 10 years. Oceanbase also surpasses Oracle in market share, which is the posture of complete victory!
What is the strategic value of “going to IOE”? We conclude with three points:
- Flexible architecture supports rapid business development
- Accumulation of basic engineering technology and talents
- Significantly reduce costs
Today, of course, we can proudly say that the “go to IOE” project has produced a great achievement: oceanbase
