It happens to be very short blog post as installation the Oracle VM Manager 3.1.1 under Dom0 host isn’t different from installing the previous version. For all tricks that you need to use please see my Oracle VM Manager 3.0.3 under Dom0 post.
I had a chance to talk to several Oracle Database Appliance users at the annual Collaborate 2012 conference last month in Las Vegas. And a common theme in this discussions, as well as discussions with Pythian clients, is an interest in using the ODA as a large-scale consolidation platform. I found this interesting and decided to dig a little further.
My work was related to Tablespace management in 5.6 and Table partition EXCHANGE, you can read the articles here. I have also start to dig a little bit more in details on Mongo architecture, given the need to have it correctly review and implemented in parallel with MySQL installations. As news review I was more interested in a couple of articles, as for below
Our flagship tool, Support Track, is steadily migrating over to use DBIx::Class to read and manipulate our databases. This is a very useful tool, for many reasons which many people explain better than I could. One of those reasons is that — thanks to the magic of SQLite — it lets us write unit test scripts, and other quick prototyping code, without needing to set up a heavy database server to run against. However, Support Track is powered by Oracle, not SQLite, and while DBIx::Class abstracts most of the differences out of our code, it can’t completely eliminate them. How do we overcome the syntactic differences?
I spent last week at Collaborate 2012 in Las Vegas and it was really great experience in many ways. I am a MySQL DBA and have been working with MySQL for most of my career, so Collaborate didn’t seem like an obvious choice. It turned out that there are so many things that I can learn from Oracle professionals and the Oracle community which can be applied in MySQL world as well. For me an indication of a good conference is when you come back inspired and full of ideas.
Pythian is excited to announce that Heidi Hauver, Pythian’s Director, HR, has been named as one of the recipients of the Ottawa Business Journal’s prestigious Forty Under 40 Award! A BIG congratulations from all of us, Heidi!
Why this article? First, I had fun digging in the code. Then, I was reading about the future improvements for MySQL 5.6, and of some current in 5.5. Most of them are well covered by people with more expertise than me, so I read, but after a while I became curious, I read the code, and did tests. I was looking at how the new Purge thread mechanism work and its implications. Here’s what I found,
Pythian’s Oracle Apps DBA team recently upgraded a client’s E-Business Suite system to version 12.1.3, bringing them into compliance with Oracle’s baseline support requirements for Release 12.1 nearly one year ahead of deadline. We’d like to tell you a bit about this project — not to toot our own horn (though that’s nice too, we are kinda proud), but because it provides an ideal illustration of the power of the Pythian service delivery model, particularly as it applies to large enterprise-class projects.
The following in this post is a brief list of what I have found more interesting during the last two weeks. Up to now, April has being a great month for MySQL…
We are happy to announce that Pythian has been ranked 156th on the annual Branham300—the definitive listing of Canada’s multinational information and communications technology (ICT) companies.
