Environment Variable Tip when using OHS 12.1.2 by Simon Haslam

OHS in co-located WebLogic configurationHere's a silly little issue I hit this afternoon - mostly a case of "administrator error" but a time waster nevertheless.
To recap, there was a big change to Web Tier administration in 12.1.2 in that OHS is controlled with what's now called the "WebLogic Management Framework" - in short this means OHS instance configuration is handled via WLST and lifecycle (start/stop etc) by Node Manager (i.e. OPMN has gone). You have (more...)

OSCON Shocker: The Cloud is Not All Rainbows and Unicorns!

| Jul 21, 2014

It's called the NetFlix Effect, and it has nothing to do binge consumption of your favorite TV series. Many CIOs have read about NetFlix on AWS, how wonderful it is, and want all that cloud goodness for their enterprise. At Oscon's Open Cloud Day, David Nailey ("recovering SysAdmin" and commiter to Apache CloudStack) argued that that hope is something like the imaginary animals in a Bestiary -- descriptions by people who don't have a lot (more...)

Enterprise Mobility – Follow the Data

| Jul 21, 2014

Author: Craig Mikus, Sr. Director, Enterprise Mobile Solutions

I always enjoy talking to customers about their enterprise mobile strategy.  Unfortunately, all too often, our conversations are about their short term plans to build one or two mobile apps, as opposed to considering a more comprehensive enterprise mobile strategy around one platform to develop, integrate, secure, manage and deploy hundreds of mobile applications. But that’s OK, most companies have to crawl before they can walk, and (more...)
