Updating Oracle VM 3.2 made easy

Oracle VM is easy to update from earlier to newer releases of the same version (errata updates). For example updating Oracle VM 3.2.3 to Oracle VM 3.2.9. 

However, people sometimes feel a little intimidated or may not even be aware there is a relatively simple and painless process for updating Oracle VM. I sometimes see customers using the normal Linux process of upgrading their Oracle VM servers by booting servers (more...)

迈入云计算时代?不要忽略培训的重要性

Adriana GarjoabaOracle2015722

Oracle Cloud Training


业内分析人士指出,当今很多企业正在迈入云计算时代,且该数据非常可观。例如,IDC报 告称,由于云计算的软件即服务(SaaS) 和平台即服务(PaaS) 的增长,许多年代已久的应用产品正在向现代化转变。而且,大约90%的 网络新兴商业软件产品的设计现在都面向云端访问和使用。1

据市场研究公司Juniper Research的一份调查报告显示,至2018年,SaaS将 拥有59%的企业云计算市场份额。2 PaaS的市场地位也同样非常重要。《信息周刊》的 一篇文章指出,绝大多数的网络应用将最终在PaaS上 运行。3

Oracle不断增加其云产品组合内容,也是这一趋势的有力证明。今年622日,Oracle公司董事长Larry Ellison24PaaS新产品的推出拉开了Oracle有史以来最重要的产品启动的序幕。他说,“我现在可以说,我们已经拥有了运行现代应用程序的完整服务套件。您现在可将任何 应用移至Oracle云 端。”

当被问及“是否有任何因素会阻碍云计算的采用?”时,最常提到的一点就是缺乏云计算培训(43%)。

您准备好了吗?

毫无疑问,所有变革带来的转变都需要相应的培训���尤其是对于IT开发人员、实施人员和管理员更是如此。要想真正地为迈向云计算时代做好准备,就需要一支受过培训的专业IT团 队,才能够成功处理这种转型并管理好基础架构。

随着云产品几乎不断地经历着更新与修改,您的IT团队首当其冲需要接受培训,之后包括您的用户在内也都需要培训才能时刻掌握产品的最新版本与增强功能。假如您的员工没有这方面的专业知识,您的企业可能会错失云计算新功能所能带来的各种优势。

事实上,缺乏培训往往被认为是向云计算成功过渡的巨大障碍。20149月,IDC进行的一项调查发现,来自欧洲IT部门的56%的受访者认为很难找到支持云计算项目的合格员工 , 而 61%的 受访者在努力为员工提供必要的技能,以便更好地与云服务提供商合作。4

另 一份调查报告显示,阻碍云计算采用的最大原因就是缺乏云计算培训43%5。 因此,培训并非无足轻重,而是至关重要。

简化向云计算转型之路

向云计算转型是一个复杂的过程,需要重新设计与定制业务功能,以满足您的业务需要,同时确保您的员工具备必要的专业知识, 从而成功实现转型。

需要留意的是,避免错误地认为云计算看似直观而认为有效地使用它一定非常容易其实不然,这需要受过良好培训的员工团队。

甲骨文大学可助您一臂之力。我们能为您提供一种方便且具成本效益的培训方式,让您的IT员工熟练掌握云计算所需的知识与技能。甲骨文云学习订阅可为包括开发人员和实施人员在内的所有工作角色提供端对端的深入培 训。学习订阅始终为您提供有关Oracle最新产品的培训内容,并且内容每年至少更新三次。

Podcast Show Notes: Docker and Virtualization

clip_image001

The latest OTN ArchBeat Podcast series features a four-part discussion of Docker and Virtualization.

The genesis for this program was a blog post about Docker on Oracle Fusion Middleware architect Mark Nelson’s RedStack blog, a post Mark co-wrote with fellow Fusion Middleware architects Edwin Biemond and Joel Nation.

Mark and Edwin are panelists for this discussion, as are Fusion Middleware architect Jim Clark, Oracle ACE Director and Fusion Middleware expert Lucas Jellema, CTO of AMIS (more...)

CRUD operations using PL/SQL in DB applied to NoSQL

Recently, we ran into an interesting use-case with one of large supermarket customers, who wanted to take the output of a PL/SQL process and rather than sending the transactional style output into an Oracle DB table, what they wanted to do is push the result over to the cheaper storage that would provide a high throughput, low latency read/write operations. Because this is transactional data we thought NoSQL would be good fit to match the requirement.

Russ Fradin: It hasn’t been that hard. They really spend a lot of time thinking about their employees, and EA (more...)

Chicago Coder Conference 2015 Trip Report

| Aug 19, 2015

The Chicago Coder Conference 2015 was held on May 14-15. The conference is locally organized by the community including the Chicago JUG, which is why it was important for us to support the event. If you are a Chicago based developer, you should definitely consider the event. The event is somewhat Java leaning but also has great presence from the web, .NET, database, etc communities.

I started the conference with a talk on JMS 2. (more...)

Downloading Windows JDeveloper For Fusion Apps

In past blog posts we have explained that Fusion Applications developers working on ADF customizations and extensions for on premise installations should download JDeveloper from eDelivery.   Oracle announced recently that as of June 1, 2015, Fusion Applications will no longer be built for the Windows Server platform (see support note 2017267.1).  If you look on eDelivery, you will consequently no longer find the Windows platform as a choice:

This has raised the question: if (more...)

YUM FAQ for Exalogic

Exalogic customers sometimes need to tailor the Linux rpms on their Exalogic rack, either physical or virtual, due to site or security requirements. MOS Doc 1492025.1 is a FAQ that covers the process to do so. There is also a tutorial available that walks through the process.

Oops

I made a mistake a few days ago following up a question on the OTN database forum. The question was about a problem creating a hash/list composite partitioned table, and one of the respondants suggested that perhaps the problem appeared because hash/list wasn’t a legal combination.

Spot on: so I confirmed that observation and supplied a link to the official Oracle white paper that listed the combinations that were legal in 11.2 for composite (more...)
