Implementing DevOps and Agile Methodologies in Oracle Projects
session will present Oracle's solution for managing development teams
and project and for automating the code to deploy cycle.
Oracle Developer Cloud Service - which is available for free with most
of the PaaS services - can help you achieve productive agile development
To push an application on the Application Container Cloud Service (ACCS) from the terminal, you can use the Oracle product 'PaaS Service Manager Command Line Interface' (PSM CLI). PSM CLI is a tool to help you with scripting tasks you want to do against several Oracle Clouds. The steps to push your application to the Oracle Cloud are not that complex, in short:
- We create a container in Storage Cloud for our application.
- We put (more...)
excited about the Exam Prep Seminar Packages! Here's why; we added a FREE retake voucher if you fail your exam, we lowered the pricing and we think they
offer a great value.
But most important is
what you think. Want to see what they’re like? Preview the Java SE 8 Programmer I
You can purchase the seminar all by itself. They are 4-6 hours in length and recorded by a great Oracle instructor (more...)
firm IDC estimates that the market for platform as a service (PaaS)
solutions will have a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30 percent
and reach $14 billion by 2017. PaaS provides application runtime,
database, integration, messaging, and other services in the cloud,
accelerating application development and reducing infrastructure
acquisition and maintenance costs. Here are five best practices for
maximizing the business value of your PaaS solutions. Get the report here.

Once you have defined your users for your Express Cloud Service, all users with the role of Database Developer or higher can access the database Service Console. From here all database related actions can be started.
The upper category, Web Access, brings you to the specified part of the APEX builder - more on that in the next post. In the lower category you can create database schema's. For our goal within smart4apex, I created (more...)
Once you get your services up and running, you can log into your domain - in this screenhot "smart4apex" - on the Oracle Cloud.
Then you'll end up in the "My Services" dashboard. As I have only one, my dashboard looks quite clean, showing just this widget:
Just a few remarks for the designers of this: I am very curious why there is an extra "(Number of ..."
in the chart title. The same (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...)
The Oracle Exadata Express Cloud Service
was announced at Oracle Open World 2016. This service looks like an excellent use case for Oracle Database development purposes as well as setting up a test environment. And even for small to medium sized production situations it looks very promising as you can see in the table below. Especially the cheapest option offers a lot of bang for your bucks.
But alas, this service was not as widely (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.
I’ve done an overly simple CPU benchmark test against Azure, AWS and Oracle cloud instances to get a rough (more...)

Our industry is full of hype and hyped terms. Big Data. NoSQL. The Cloud. Self-service <whatever>. And Cloud Data Warehousing. Some of the offerings and solutions are real. Some less so. Newest on the scene is cloud data warehousing (or data warehousing in the cloud). As with all new tech, there are a variety […]
