ScaleScale on the stack behind Netflix scaling

Over at ScaleScale, a blog about all the good stuff when it comes to scaling, an interesting post was published on the stack behind Netflix scaling. Since Netflix is quite public about how they operate, the post put was together with stuff from around the internet.

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: Coming soon, ABCService

One of the other cloud announcements that caught my eyes on Open World was ABCS, the Application Builder Cloud Service. A tool for the Line of Business user to create simple web and/or mobile application by drag and drop in the web browser. Simple add components out of a menu on the page, rearrange them and edit them the way you want in the WYSIWYG editor.


The tool either creates business objects from scratch in (more...)

Soa Cloud Service + Developer Cloud Service: Integration

OOW15: Announcing SoaCS

The Oracle SOA Cloud Service is online and you can check it out on the Oracle SoaCS Cloud page. This SoaCS offers you all the functionality the SOA Suite offers you on premise.

To get the SoaCS, you follow (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. I was surprised to find out I got more and more enthusiastic about this concept and the possibilities with the Oracle Cloud.
Microsites is a concept for a small temporary site. (more...)

OEM and monitoring the -MGMTDB GMIR Database

When you create Grid Infrastructure in 12.1.0.2, 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...)

The Pen Is Mightier With UX

If you work in enterprise user experience (UX) it will come as no surprise that the humble pen and paper remains in widespread use for everyday business.

Sales reps, for example, are forever quickly scribbling down opportunity info. HR pros use them widely. Accountants? Check. At most meetings you will find both pen and paper and digital technology on the table.

That’s what UX is all about, understanding all the tools, technology, and job aids, (more...)
