DbaaS, but on metal: Rac on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

DbaaS, but on metal: Rac on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Let’s skip some networking stuff first and do some fun tests on this Cloud infrastructure. One of the things which caught my attention is the RAC database as a service. I will split this in two separate blog posts. This one will tell you about how to create a RAC database as a service and the next one will tell you about how it performs. Let’s get started! General First step is of course log into your portal and make…

Put the pedal to the metal: Oracle Bare metal cloud! The first impressions on networking

Put the pedal to the metal: Oracle Bare metal cloud! The first impressions on networking

The beginning In the beginning of this year (2017), I was doing a cloud project, despite all efforts, unfortunately not on the Oracle cloud. When we finally had to deliver, suddenly the license rules changes for non-Oracle other cloud environments and you might or might not remember all options were open again. At that point, I really needed to vent and I wrote the blogpost Why the sun shines for Oracle and it’s cloudy for others. I made some points…

Aws s3 outage

Aws s3 outage

Today our aws friends suffered from an outage. This raises some questions.  Suppose your entire organization is built on cloud products. All of them are closely related. This means a total outage for the organization.  What about costs? Personally I am not an aws user, but would this outage be like “sorry dear customer, but you’re going to pay even we had this unplanned outage”. If you’re mission critical, let’s say you’re end users are depending on it. Would it…

Why the sun shines for Oracle and it’s Cloudy for others

Why the sun shines for Oracle and it’s Cloudy for others

First of all, I ‘d like to mention that this draft has been put back from schedule several times over and over again. Asking myself the question, should I really do this? But then again … This is a blog, a very personal humble opinion and you should not agree with me, I can be wrong, I can be right. The truth is probably in between. So, the title “Why the sun shines for Oracle and it’s cloudy for others”,…

The first performance related impressions of the new ODA X6-2M

The first performance related impressions of the new ODA X6-2M

New toys are always fun! When Oracle announced their “Small” ODA’s in the X6-2 generation, we were excited to test them. We were not the only ones, so it took a while before getting one, but the first week of january, it was playtime. An ODA X6-2M was delivered to our demoroom and testing could begin. Normally I would start a blog post by “how to install” it. Actually this is very simple and very well documented. If you want me to…

ORACLE DB IN THE AZURE CLOUD – PT2

ORACLE DB IN THE AZURE CLOUD – PT2

During the BI in the cloud project, one of the aspects we had to test is the network. Here is how we did it to figure out how the network performs and most of all, is it stable? One of the most important things in a cloud environment is the network. It connects devices to eachother and makes it possible to have communication between devices. Sounds obvious, right? Some tests we have done, were relying very heavily on the network, such…

Oracle DB in the Azure cloud – Pt1

Oracle DB in the Azure cloud – Pt1

A few months ago (about october) ago we were contacted with the simple question: Can you run an oracle database in the cloud, the Azure cloud. Well … it depends. The little detail was, that the database is about 34TB and there are a few other multi TB databases AND there are a lot of copies of them. And … the final decision for go live is … end of 2016.  Well, we accepted the challenge. The deadline was strict, so that’s also…
