I’m in Denmark these days at the wonderful Oracle conference organized by Miracle A/S — Miracle OpenWorld 2010. Opening session was something special this year, the opening was rounded up with a new film production demo from We Do Not Use TV Studio. Time to grab a bite and get ready to my dual-slot presentation — Under the Hood of Oracle Clusterware which is the very first presentation of today. More to come — stay tuned.
Oracle invested heavily in open source even before the acquisition. Linux (Oracle Unbreakable Linux = Oracle Enterprise Linux = OEL). Clustering, data integrity, storage validation, asynchronous I/O, virtualiation technology that has been accepted back into the Linux kernel. They have enhanced Xen, in order to make a good Oracle VM server for x86. With Sun, they now have VirtualBox. In the 3 years of OEL, they have over 4,500 companies.
I’m excited to announce that Gwen Shapira has started with Pythian this week. :) Chen is no stranger here and many of my colleagues already know her and were in touch — she just naturally fits in.
There you can find the list of EM 11g new features. After I quickly skimmed through it I could mention few areas…Here is the surprise you might not have expected — you now need to install Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.2 (Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 Patch Set 1) as a pre-requisite to Oracle Grid Control installation.
I’m tired reading all over the internet — Oracle taking back OpenSolaris, Open Solaris May Die?, Solaris Is Dead, Save Open Solaris, Oracle taking back OpenSolaris. I’m so sick of it! I see that some don’t even know the difference between OpenSolaris and commercial Oracle Solaris (former Sun Solaris 10)! Wake up people! Oracle did make commercial Solaris 10… eh… commercial, that is.
I’m excited to share the news that Oracle ACE program has been extended to cover MySQL community now and Pythian’s Sheeri Cabral has become the very first Oracle ACE Director in MySQL expertize area. It’s a special privilege for me to blog about it because I had a pleasure to nominate Sheeri in the first place. Being an Oracle ACE Director myself and knowing what’s involved, I believed that if Oracle ACE program is extended to MySQL, Sheeri must be the number one candidate.
This is the 184th edition of Log Buffer, the weekly review of database blogs. I’ve edited a couple of Log Buffers before, but this is the first time I get to post directly to the Pythian blog. Just one of the many perks of being a Pythian employee ;)
There has been a recent thread on ORACLE-L where the poster asked why there is an extra filter predicate which appears when functions are being used in the where clause. We can observe the behavior using the following test case.
Hello folks, it’s great to be back from hiatus. This is the 183rd edition of Log Buffer (arguably the best edition of Log Buffer yet!), the weekly review of database blogs.
I’ve hit a bug in Oracle 188.8.131.52 when working with deferrable constraints which I think is worth sharing as it may have profound consequences under certain scenarios.Here it is.
