See Alex’s white on Block Change Tracking Internals that’s now published on My Oracle Support. Take a poll on Oracle BCT adoption. Learn about some unconventional uses of BCT such as incrementally updated standby. Get involved – share your experience.
This is just a small bug fix release of the plugin. It was actually quietly released for a while now of if you have downloaded the plugin recently, you have the latest version. To be sure — check the version in the Console or you will see it in the file name.
We have the SIG meeting at Oracle Open World Everyone is welcome. Gwen Shapira is the SIG leader and expect lots of great things in that space. The SIG is also looking for volunteers — that’s going to be hot space so if you want to engage early come and let us know.
As I’ve become Director of Communities for IOUG recently, I’m intimately involved in many aspects of leading the IOUG community. One of the areas the user group is pursuing all the time is finding new speakers, and it takes a lot of convincing before community members actually start presenting. There are many of you who have exciting projects and implementations to share but can’t quite convince themselves to actually present.
Oracle OpenWorld 2012 is just over a month away and yes we are organizing the Annual Oracle Bloggers Meetup — one of your top favorite events of the OpenWorld.
MySQL management plugin for EM 12c has been long overdue. I’ve initially migrated the older plugin to EM 12c about 6 months ago and few dozen people received this as initial beta of the plugin. It worked OK but didn’t use any of the 12c new features and its home page was a bit of a mess in the EM 12c Cloud Control web interface.
We have several just two left brand new, unopened ODAs left in our inventory that we need to move. Half of them are gone to our customers but there are few still left
If you are looking to kick start your community contributions or looking to volunteer more than what you already do, I have an awesome suggestion for you — nominate yourself to serve as an IOUG Oracle RAC SIG Board Officers volunteer. Find out more here.
When preparing for the the IOUG Collaborate 12’s deep dive on deploying Oracle Databases for High Availability, I wanted to provide some feedback on which hardware components are failing most and least frequently. I believe I have a reasonably good idea of the answer, but I thought that providing some more objective data would be better. I couldn’t find results from a more scientific research, so I decided to organize a poll. This blog post shows the results, which I promised to share with several groups.
While doing my high availability deep dive at Collaborate 12 few weeks ago, I stated that storage replication qualifies for the cold failover licensing rules (see slide #128). During collaborate, I spoke to one person at Oracle who definitely knows the rules. Simon Haslam also reached out to me by email pointing out that things might not be that rosy. I will update the slides accordingly. In any case, please do your own homework and don’t trust my conclusions here — don’t take this as licensing advice by any means.
