OCFS2 for Shared Appl_Top in Oracle E-Business Suite

Shared appltop setup in Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) is very common nowadays, for obvious reasons. It cuts down the patching downtime enormously on large multi middle tier environments, as we just have apply the patches on only one node instead of all nodes.  Any apps patch or apps techstack patch need to be applied only…

My Experience at UKOUG Tech13

UKOUG Tech13 was great! Not only because of the amount of interesting presentations to choose from, but also because of the surrounding events.

Attended UKOUG Tech13 and Oaktable World UK

In cold, yet dry Manchester’s winter, it was quite thermal to simultaneously relish the meritorious UKOUG Tech13 and elite Oaktable World UK 2013 conferences.

This is the first year since 2006 that I don’t present and don’t attend UKOUG Technology annual conference. Sad but I had to withdraw because I didn’t believe UKOUG has been making the right choices in the past little while.
