These are my personal rules to moderate the public forums on LinkedIn. I’ve posted on that topic in the discussion on the IOUG Exadata SIG forum. As I’m passing RAC SIG group to the next folks on the board (I’m the RAC SIG president until end of August), I needed to hand over my forum management duties too. I decided that it might be useful to the wider audience, so why don’t I just publish this on the blog?Read More >
This is a quick blog post from Collaborate 2012 in Vegas. I’m only doing one session this year, but it’s a very long session — I’ve just done a deep dive on deploying Oracle Database 11gR2 for High Availability. It’s a broad topic, and my plan was to focus a lot on basic concepts and how they work.Read More >
Just a quick heads up to the ODA customers — there is a critical patch 126.96.36.199.1 out that is applied on top of ODA patch bundle 188.8.131.52.0. This patch has an important fix for a bug causing ODA servers to shutdown in some situations when an ASM disk is lost.Read More >
The biggest objection to Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) we hear from customers is about 4TB usable space limit (tripple mirrored 12TB of raw storage). I think most of the times this is more a perceived barrier rather than objective — more along the lines of being afraid to hit the limit if the system grows a lot. Nevertheless, Oracle has been always listening customers’ concerns when it comes to purchasing barriers. Of course, this time is no exception.Read More >

If you are using Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) then this patch is very important to apply. The patch bundle 184.108.40.206.0 has been published just this week and the most important fix from my perspective is the new BIOS version 12010304.Read More >

This release is just a quick bug fix release of an older 1.1.1 version of the plug-in. It’s long overdue but I’ve managed to fix “” problem only couple weeks ago. I’ve distributed the new version to the folks who have reached out to me by email of via blog reporting the issue in the past few months and they all confirmed that the new version is working fine so I’m releasing it now.Read More >
This year, there were ten Pythian folks attending UKOUG Conference and we did twelve sessions including multiple presentations, masterclass, RAC Attack workshop, round-table and 10 minutes OakTalk. I think it’s the record number of session Pythian folks did at a single UKOUG conference and the record number of Pythian peeps attending. A dozen of Pythian people in Europe and now even a sales guy in the UK mean that Pythian penetration in the UK database services business is close to the infliction point. This is ultimately a good news!Read More >
