BI, 11g RAC, Storage Qos, Virtualization and End of Year Wisdom

BI

The Rittman Mead Consulting Group blog has a nice collection of their ten Top BI & DW Events of 2007.

11g RAC

Christian Bilien provides an interesting article today on 11g ASM preferred reads for RAC extended clusters.

Storage

IT Opinion

The Simple DBA shows us the profundity of her simplicity with this posting, which calls on us all to verify backups, but includes much more. There's a lot of wisdom here, and not a small amount of humor.

The IT Management blog brings us some thoughts on the top five virtualization vendors in today's market.

ApEX

David Peake brings news of a possible certification track coming for ApEx here. Please consider taking the survey he points to if you are interested in this idea.

I'd like to point out that Simple DBA is actually a female simple DBA, and therefore she "shows us the profundity of her simplicity".

Besides, thanks for the positive comment :-)

Thanks for pointing that out. I'll try to keep that gender thing in mind next time.
