In an increasingly competitive jobs market rife with candidate fraud, digital badges are the breakthrough that allows companies to immediately verify candidate qualifications and avoid the costs, inconvenience, and business risk of unqualified hires. Digital badges also enable genuine job applicants to benefit from instant credibility and avoid losing out on career opportunities to unqualified fraudsters, whose numbers are currently on the rise.

We’re 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...)
Let’s face it: education without interaction is about as effective as shouting origami instructions at a lumberjack who is cutting down trees. Sure, your informative lessons will come in handy when the product of their work finally becomes paper, but it will be long forgotten and ultimately worthless by then. The only way a student is going to learn is if they can put (more...)

In this post, we’re going to use Delphix to create a virtual ASM diskgroup, and provision a clone of the virtual ASM diskgroup to a target system. I call it vASM, which is pronounced “vawesome.” Let’s make it happen.
Most viewers assume Gollum was talking about Shelob the giant spider here, but I have it on good authority that he was (more...)
In this post, we’re going to perform a push button refresh of an Oracle Database, Application Express (APEX) installation, and Tomcat webserver.
“But Oracle Alchemist,” you’re probably thinking, “we know about that. You’ve told us about how Delphix can provision and refresh data.” And yes, you’d be right. But I wasn’t done yet.
We’re going to perform a refresh of an Oracle Database, APEX installation, and Tomcat running in Amazon Web Services, replicated from (more...)
Seamless cloning of an application stack is an outstanding goal. Seamless cloning of an application stack including the full production database, application server, and webserver in a few minutes with next to zero disk space used or configuration required is the best goal since Alexander Graham Bell decided he wanted a better way tell Mr. Watson to “come here.”

It's been a very long time not coming here, about 2 years and half ... and I missed it big time.
Only two things are really certain: network latency over long distances, and the fact that humanity will soon rapidly degenerate into undead brain-eaters.
When that day comes, when the dead are crowding at your door and the windows are busted out and ripped up rotted arms are clawing at the inside of your home, I know what you’ll be thinking: is my database protected?
Don’t worry, my friends. The Oracle Alchemist has you covered. We (more...)
Last week I attended Oracle OpenWorld 2014, and it was an outstanding event filled with great people, awesome sessions, and a few outstanding notable experiences.
Personally I thought the messaging behind the conference itself wasn’t as amazing and upbeat as OpenWorld 2013, but that’s almost to be expected. Last year there was a ton of buzz around the introduction of Oracle 12c, Big Data was a buzzword that people were totally excited (more...)
Are you going to Oracle OpenWorld 2014? I am, and I hope to see you there! As you probably know, OpenWorld is a humongous event with tens of thousands of people in attendance and some amazing presentations. Why, I even hear Oracle’s new CTO might be there. I wonder if he has anything to talk about?
This year we’ll have a ton of activity at the Delphix booth. You can check out the speaking schedule, (more...)
Today’s the first day of school in my city, and the plethora of “OMG 1st day of school!” posts of Facebook and my own kids heading back in to slog through another year of fundamentals got me thinking about education. My own kids (12/daughter and 10/son) came home and went swimming since it was about 104 degrees today…the hottest day of the summer, as it were.
Anyways, after that activity my son decided to (more...)
I’m going to kick this post off by taking sides in a long-standing feud.
Apple is amazing.
There. Edgy, right? Okay, so maybe you don’t agree with me, but you have to admit that a whole lot of people do. Why is that?Sure, there’s the snarky few that believe Apple products are successful due to an (more...)
