  • My Clustering Cheet Sheet | OTN Garage
    The question is: "Why would somebody complicate our sysadmin lives by suggesting we install Oracle RAC on Oracle Solaris Cluster? What would that be, highly-available high availability?" Rick "OTN Garage" Ramsey has the answer.
  • Quick introduction of what and why of Oracle Database Edition Based Redefinition | Lucas Jellema
    "Availability is a highly desirable aspect of Fusion Middleware application," says Oracle ACE Director Lucas Jellema. "Planned downtime therefore sounds quite silly. However, the introduction of changes to applications has typically been associated with the roll out and redeployment of the application causing disruption of service – through loss of existing conversations and unavailability during the deployment process. Several approaches and mechanisms are available in the Oracle stack that will help substantially reduce the loss of uptime because of changes to applications."
  • Discount code for SOA, Cloud, and Service Technology Forum, September 24-25 in London

  • Government IT: less spending, more cloud ahead | ZDNet
    US Government IT spending is headed for a decrease, according to reports cited by Joe McKendrick. "To meet the challenge to do a lot more with a lot less, agencies are emphasizing information security, data center consolidation, business systems modernization, cloud computing, mobility and Big Data solutions."
