Runtime version of Node on Oracle Application Container Cloud (0.12 vs. 6.9.1) – easy single click upgrade
Yesterday, I create a new application on Oracle Application Container Cloud. The application type is Node (fka Node.js), so the container type I had created was Node – rather than PHP or Java SE, the other two options currently available to me. I was a little dismayed to learn that the runtime Node version that my container was created with was (still) 0.12.17. I had assumed that by now ACCS would have (more...)

A little while ago after a question from a customer about supporting Oracle products on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) I decided to take a look for any updates to the Oracle public cloud support policies. The document can be easily found on the Oracle website. I quickly noticed some significant changes in the new version of the document. More specifically, I’m referring to the changes that came with the latest version of that document (more...)
To me, ‘cloud computing’ is renting a compute resource to perform a task. In order to use that compute resource, you need to instruct it to do something, which is typically done via the network. If the task the compute resource needs to fulfil is being an application server or being a client or both in the case of an application server that uses an Oracle database, the network latency between the client of the (more...)
At the end of January 2017, Oracle updated its Licensing Oracle Software in the Cloud Computing Environment Document, which effectively removed the core factor 0.5 for Intel and instead made it 1:1, doubled the licensing costs overnight!
For reference, the old document for reference can be found here.
You can image this caused a major stir on Social Media, where my friend Tim Hall posts on this topic became very hot! You can read them (more...)
Following up on the the Oracle doubled the costs for database licenses on MS Azure and partly on AWS post, I wondered with which setup on which cloud provider you would get the most bang out of an Oracle SE2 database processor license and what the recent change in Oracle licensing means especially for Azure users.
