  • My Clustering Cheet Sheet | OTN Garage

  • 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."
