The presentation used during the highly successful AMIS Oracle 12c Launch Event is online for those who are interested. Enjoy. Special thanks for Thomas Kyte; for allowing me to use some of his pluggable database presentation content. An AMIS Overview of Oracle database 12c (12.1) from Marco Gralike
Amazon Web Services has offered Relational Database Service as part of their cloud offering since 2011. These days, RDS provides easy to deploy, on-demand database-as-a-service for MySQL, Oracle, and SQL Server. When you compare it to essentially any other method of hosting and licensing Oracle, RDS seems to have a variety of really appealing qualities.
With RDS/Oracle, you don’t really need a DBA to take care of your database. With the notable exception of tuning, most of the DBA tasks, such as database creation and configuration, backups, upgrades, and disaster recovery are simply features of the service.
This morning I read this post about Oracle Cloud from Tuula Fai.
What really annoys me about this post is I was at Oracle OpenWorld (about 3 years ago) when Larry was on stage telling us that Cloud was a meaningless fad. Fast forward to OOW 2012 and it would be easy to believe that Oracle invented the cloud, as I mentioned here. At OOW 2012 he openly stated Oracle started to write Fusion Apps for the cloud 7 years ago. Dude! That is not true. You initiated a program to rewrite Fusion Apps to be a browser-based replacement for EBS, which then happily coincided with the whole cloud thing at a later date. At least this post acknowledges that could have been an accident…
For me it all started out very stressful. I overslept yesterday, or the day before, and noticed that it already was 08.25 AM. My flight would leave at 09.50, so the rush to the airport was very painful. Seriously hope I won’t have too many speeding tickets in my attempt to checkin somehow anyway on …
After a long wait Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, aka Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c is about to make it’s appearance. You can find information about the EM12c environment via following this link: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/oem/grid-control/overview/index.html This will not only bring you to the documentation and download URL’s but also to some ELearning YouTub movies that demonstrate …
I am currently at a presentation of Patrick Schwanke, Quest Germany, regarding easy and high speed connect between NoSQL and Oracle Databases. Not really what I planned but as mentioned by Alex Nuijten in an earlier post, unstructured data and it’s handling is gaining ground, so I thought it would a good start do start …
Openworld 2010, despite the supposedly lagging economy, had record attendance again this year. No doubt this was the result of Oracle acquiring something like fourteen companies since last year, including Sun in 2009. The crowds were thick, divided about evenly between geeks in badly-fitting vendor t-shirts and slick sales-side hustlers with dress pants and shiny shoes. I landed somewhere in the middle of the two (badly-fitting dress shirt, comfortable jeans and loafers), proudly sporting a long dangling codpiece of ribbons from my attendee badge:
Oracle OpenWorld 2010 is just bursting with big cloud-related announcements this week. As I prepare to present on the Amazon cloud at OOW2010 on Thursday (http://bit.ly/aSKdIQ), I thought I would highlight two of the biggest cloud-related announcements of the week.
We all know about Exadata, Oracle’s hardware-based storage-optimized RAC monster capable of over 1 million IOPS. In his keynote, Larry Ellison announced Exalogic, an appliance that is meant to provide cloud-like private internal infrastructure. Oriented towards middleware, Exalogic’s marketing materials emphasize the elasticity of resources and promote middleware consolidation onto a small set of Exalogic nodes.
It’s Sunday morning early in San Francisco and the biggest ever Oracle OpenWorld is about to start. It looks like it’s also going to be the busiest ever OpenWorld for me — my schedule looks crazy and I still need to do the slides for my Thursday sessions (one on ASM and one on cloud computing). Fortunately, my slides for today’s presentation are all ready to go.
OK. Don’t let me carry away — I started this post with the intention to write about what I expect Oracle to announce at this OpenWorld and it seems like the most important announcements happen at tonight’s keynote. I hasn’t been at the Oracle ACE Directors briefing so unlike them, all I can say is pure speculation-based and my wishes of what should be covered. Actually, unlike them, I actually CAN say at least something. :)
That’s all. I’m sure there will be more. I didn’t mention SPARC and that’s not because I forgot.
This OpenWorld promises to be very interesting!
