OOW15: Oracle Open World 2015

Just before Oracle Open World 2015, the launch of the new 12c (12.2.1) release went public. This release was a full release of the whole stack. From WebLogic Server to Business Intelligence, including product that were not on 12.1.3 yet, like WebCenter. A bit closer to Open World than expected, but this was good news, meaning we can talk freely about 12.2.1 and get all the information on it (more...)

OOW15: Cloud Bingo!

Even more than the previous years combined, this Open World was about the Cloud! The cloud is inevitable, so it seems. During my stay at Open World, I tried to find out more about the different cloud products, including their official acronyms.
To help my future self, but maybe some other people along the way, I created an overview of the clouds I met. This sure is not a full and completed list, but the (more...)

OOW15: Microsites with SCS on top of DCS

Most of us are familiar with or have at least heard of the concept of microservices, this year at Open World I also heard the term microsites more and more and I went on an investigation to find out more about the possibilities.

OEM and monitoring the -MGMTDB GMIR Database

When you create Grid Infrastructure in, you are presented with a new (annoyingly named) “-MGMTDB”

This database is a standard, 12C CDB/PDB storing transient performance and other information. If it is lost, no biggie. Just re-create it (in your voting disk DG. Aside: create a new MGMTDB_DG, move your voting disk there, re-create -MGMTDB, then move your voting disk back out to the proper multiple voting volumes.)

However, Oracle Enterprise (more...)

Recommendations to Address Cloud Performance Issues via EM12c

So I’m going to start this post with an admission-  I don’t have access to a cloud environment to test this out, but I know what I would do first if I experienced slow response time on database creation or cloning via EM12c to the cloud and I would like to at LEAST post what I would do to give others the chance to test it out and see if it offers them some (more...)
