Licensing Oracle in a public cloud: the CPU calculation impact

First of all a disclaimer: I don’t work for Oracle nor do I speak for them. I believe this information to be correct, but for licensing questions, Oracle themselves have the final word.

With that out of the way, followers of this blog may have seen some of the results from my testing of actual CPU capacity with public clouds like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Compute Engine. In each of these (more...)

Nephophobia

They say that these are not the best of times
But they're the only times I've ever known
And I believe there is a time for meditation
In cathedrals of our own

Now I have seen that sad surrender in my mother's eyes
I can only stand apart and sympathize
For we are always what our situations hand us
Its either sadness or euphoria

Setting up Oracle Stream Explorer 12.1.3

Oracle Stream Explorer is available now for download. For those unfamiliar with the product, it is a new tool based on Oracle Event Processing (OEP, formerly known as Complex Event Processing). It’s a graphical interface on OEP, hiding the rather daunting CQL (Continuous Query Language) from the user.

Installation is pretty straightforward. You start with installation of OEP 12.1.3.

Nashville Cat

Nashville cats, play clean as country water
Nashville cats, play wild as mountain dew

I’m In Love With My Car

I'm in love with my car
Gotta feel for my automobile
Get a grip on my boy racer rollbar
Such a thrill when your radials squeal.
                    -- From Queen's I'm In Love With My Car

As is typical with Queen, citing the lyrics fail to do the song justice.  You can hear the song and watch the official video here.  C'mon back when you're done.

Test MySQL on AWS quickly

Using sysbench to performance test AWS RDS MySQL hardware is an easy three step  operation. 

Sysbench creates synthetic tests and they are done on a 1 mil row 'sbtest' table that sysbench creates in the MySQL database you indicate. The test doesn't intrude with your database schema, and it doesn't use your data, so it is quite safe. The test is an OLTP test trying to simulate event operations in the database as it (more...)

If You Want It, Here It Is

If you want it
Here it is, come and get it
Mmmm, make your mind up fast
If you want it
Anytime, I can give it
But you better hurry
Cause it may not last

CloudFlare I trusted you :)

For the past months I’ve been using CloudFlare on some projects, mainly web stores build with Magento and some CMS. For the most of them, CloudFlare works really great and I think CloudFlare is a great company. There’s lot of plugins to manage CloudFlare integration with e-commerce solutions and usually it’s pretty straightforward to get the best of it’s services.

Lately I’ve been so busy working with new technologies such as NOSQL databases and reactive (more...)

Enterprise Apps on SaaS

It's really, really early on a Monday morning as I write this:  "zero dark-thirty".  Some ideas just refuse to allow sleep until you share them.  So, while shivering in the pre-dawn cold, I offer the following for your consideration...

Picture if you will, just for a moment, the idea that your enterprise applications system is like an iceberg.  There are the system costs that you can see.  Then there are the costs below the water (more...)
