Shaping the future of

Oracle Labs is a research and development organization within Oracle. Our research is focused on real-world outcomes: our researchers aim to develop technologies that will play a significant role in the evolution of technology and society.

Current Projects


A high-performance runtime supporting Java and JVM languages, JavaScript, Ruby, R, Python, C/C++, and more. It can run standalone or embedded in OpenJDK / OracleJDK, Node.js, and Oracle Database.


KeyBridge is a multi-disciplinary project using expertise from systems-programming, data visualization and machine learning in order to understand massive streams of data.


Macaron is a supply chain security analysis tool which focuses on the build integrity of an artifact and the artifact dependencies

Machine Learning Research Group

The mission of the Machine Learning Research Group is to scale Machine Learning across Oracle by researching and developing ML-based solutions that improve Oracle's products and services.

Mathematical Optimization

The MLRG group in Oracle Labs builds general tools to solve both classic and emerging optimization problems and provides consulting to develop specific optimizations solutions for Oracle customers

Parallel Graph AnalytiX (PGX)

Parallel, efficient, in-memory, single-machine and distributed graph processing

Programming Language Research Group

Programming language design, semantics, algorithms, and implementation with an emphasis on convenient use of parallelism using multicores and GPUs.


Project RASPunzel aims to deliver an automated and scalable runtime application self-protection (RASP) solution for Java.

Secure Languages

Exploration of new secure language concepts and secure abstractions that can be applied in future languages to prevent vulnerabilities in code written in those languages.

Success Stories


HeatWave is a cloud native service which is exclusively available in Oracle cloud Infrastructure and provides compelling performance and cost for analytic workloads. Organizations using MySQL database for managing their enterprise data can now run analytic queries with HeatWave with significantly better performance, lower cost, not requiring ETL and support for real- time analytics in contrast to other database services like RDS, Google Big Query, Snowflake, Aurora and Redshift.

The service can be deployed in a cloud only or in a hybrid environment, and it simplifies management for both transactional and analytic applications.

GraalVM is a high-performance runtime that accelerates Java applications and offers a platform for cloud-native application development in Java. With the Native Image technology, GraalVM compiles Java applications ahead of time into native executables that start in milliseconds, have low memory footprint, and are perfect for cloud deployments.

In addition to Java and JVM languages, GraalVM can also run JavaScript, Python, Ruby, LLVM-based languages like C and C++, and other languages with seamless interoperability in a shared runtime.

Oracle Database Multilingual Engine

Multilingual Engine (MLE) is a feature of Oracle Database that enables the use of modern programming languages like JavaScript for server-side procedural logic. On the basis of GraalVM, MLE builds a platform for efficient, scalable program execution in Oracle Database that is tightly integrated with processing of relational and non-relational data.

The Multilingual Engine team at Oracle Labs works on further developing this platform to provide innovative features for database apps.
