I’ve recently upgrade couple of exadata to 188.8.131.52 and want to share the experience. I hope this short note will help someone to make the decision, calculate estimation and prepare for maintenance. I am going to talk about upgrade from the version 184.108.40.206 BP10 to 220.127.116.11 BP2.
I had a chance to talk to several Oracle Database Appliance users at the annual Collaborate 2012 conference last month in Las Vegas.

Since Oracle 22.214.171.124 came out last September, there have been questions about Exadata availability. As of today, the patchset is now available.
Reviewing the upgrade document (MOS note 1373255.1) a few things that jumped out at me, here they are.
For those of you attending UKOUG today, there is a healthy dose of Pythian presentations on tap this afternoon. Actually, you can do it wall to wall 2:30pm to 6:30pm if you like.
