Friday Spotlight: Accelerating MySQL on Oracle Linux with Flash

Happy Friday!

Our spotlight this week is on a brand new white paper that can help you get the most out of MySQL running on Oracle Linux, with the help of Oracle's Sun Flash Accelerator F80 PCIe card. To give you an idea of the Oracle Linux part of this, here is an except from the paper's intro:

"Oracle Linux with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) was chosen for this study for several key reasons including its upstream support for the latest hardware relevant to modern data center operations, and SSD support and performance features such as SSD detect. In addition, MySQL database workloads benefit from the platform’s deep integration with the solution stack, optimizations resulting from industry collaborations and enhancements in the UEK.

We'll see you next week!

Friday Spotlight: Vitual Sysadmin Day and Hands On Labs

Happy Friday!

If you missed Virtual Sysadmin Day last month, it is available in replay mode. It's not quite the same as the real-time environment where you could ask questions, but you do get recorded versions of the presentations that were given to give you some extra context for working through the Hands On Labs. Also, if you are in EMEA friendly time zones, there is a second live Virtual Sysadmin Day coming up on March 18. You can register here.

Speaking of Hands On Labs, the ones from Virtual Sysadmin Day are hosted on a Wiki page here. But the really cool thing is there are several additional Hands On Labs there that you can work through, too. So, if you're in the mood to learn a lot more about Oracle Linux administration, have a look and see what interests you.

Have a great week!
