Oracle Database 11g Release 2 is now available for Solaris (SPARC and x86)

Oracle Database 11g Release 2 for Solaris is now available for download at the Oracle Technology Network Development. This includes 64 bit binaries for both SPARC and x86. This is pretty exciting news since this is the first time that x86 binaries for Solaris have been available at the same time as SPARC. A big thanks to our friends at Oracle for making this happen.

Let the upgrades and installations begin.

Oracle reduces licensing multiplier for UltraSPARC T2+ systems

Taking a look at the Oracle Processor Core Factor Table, I noticed that on September 24 our friends at Oracle have reduced the per core licensing factor on UltraSPARC T2+ systems. This includes the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5140, T5240, T5440 and T6340 (blade). If you will permit the pun, this is very cool news indeed.
