ArchBeat Link-o-Rama for 2012-09-25

  • Oracle 11gR2 RAC on Software Defined Network (SDN) | Gilbert Stan
    "The SDN [software defined network] idea is to separate the control plane and the data plane in networking and to virtualize networking the same way we have virtualized servers," explains Gil Standen. "This is an idea whose time has come because VMs and vmotion have created all kinds of problems with how to tell networking equipment that a VM has moved and to preserve connectivity to VPN end points, preserve IP, etc."

    H/T to Oracle ACE Director Tim Hall for the recommendation.
  • ServerSent-Events on WebLogic Server | Steve Buttons
    "The HTML5 ServerSent-Event model provides a mechanism to allow browser clients to establish a uni-directional communication path to a server, where the server is then able to push messages to the browser at any point in time," explains Steve "Buttso" Buttons.
  • Focus on Architects and Architecture
    This handy guide for sessions and other activities at Oracle OpenWorld 2012 focuses on IT architecture in all its many facets and permutations.

"We end the post by showing how the operating system can be tuned when running a Java process such as WebLogic Server."
  • Free eBook: Oracle SOA Suite - In the Customer's Words
    If you find yourself in the position of having to sell the idea of Service-oriented Architecture to business stakeholders this free e-book may come in very handy. Check out "Oracle SOA Suite: In the Customer's Words. (Registration / Oracle.com login required.)

ArchBeat Link-o-Rama for 2012-08-28

  • You may be tempted by IaaS, but you should PaaS on that or your database cloud journey will be a short one
    "The better option [to IaaS] is to rationalize the deployment stack so that VMs are needed only for exceptional cases," says B. R. Clouse. "By settling on a standard operating system and patch level, you create an infrastructure that potentially all of your databases can share. Now, the building block will be database instances or possibly schemas within databases. These components are the platforms on which you will deploy workloads, hence this is known as Platform as a Service (PaaS)."
  • 'Shadow IT' can be the cloud's best friend | David Linthicum
    "I do not advocate that IT give up control and allow business units to adopt any old technology they want," says Infoworld cloud computing blogger David Linthicum. "However, IT needs to face reality: For the past three decades or so, corporate IT has been slow on the uptake around the use of productive new technologies." Do you agree?
  • 9 ways cloud will impact IT employment | ZDNet
    ZDNet blogger Joe McKendrick condenses information from a recent report on how cloud computing will impact IT jobs. Number one on the list: New categories of jobs arising from cloud computing, which include "private cloud developers and administrators, departmental liaisons, integration specialists, cloud architects, and compliance specialists." Yeah, that's right, cloud architects.

    For more on cloud architects, including what you need to up your game to thrive in the cloud, check out "The Role of the Cloud Architect" on the OTN ArchBeat Podcast.
  • Decisions, Decisions: The art, science, and politics of technology selection
    "When the time comes for a solution architect to make the final decision about the technologies, standards, and other elements that are to be incorporated into a particular project, what factors weigh most heavily on that decision? It comes as no surprise that among the architects I contacted, business needs top the list."
  • Managing Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud with Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center
    Anand Akela's byline is on this post, but "Dr. Jürgen Fleischer, Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Engineering" appears at the end of the post, so it's anybody's guess as to who wrote this thing. But the content includes a complete listing of the Exalogic 2.0.1 Tea Break Snippets series written by a member of the Exalogic team who goes by the name "The Old Toxophilist." So maybe the best thing to do here is ignore the names and focus on the very useful conent.
  • Boost your infrastructure with Coherence into the Cloud | Nino Guarnacci
    Nino Guarnacci describes a use case that involved managing a variety of data caches that process complex queries and parallel computational operations, in order to maintain the caches in a consistent state on different server instances.
