Security, Performance, EMC Flashdrives



Mark Wilcox has written a paper on securing SOA linked from his blog.


Peter Finnigan has a new paper available on VPD in the real world at his blog.


The blogosphere is continuing to echo with opinion, head-nodding, etc. from the survey that determined that most DBAs do not keep their systems up with the latest security CPU from Oracle. To echo the old commercial on American TV/radio: 'It's ten o'clock at night, do you know who's logging in to your Oracle instance?' Please try to keep up with the CPUs.


Richard Foote has some good material on nulls in indexes (and some great discussion in the comments below).

Asif Momen has some nice hands on performance comparisons of datatypes at his blog.

EMC Flashdrives

Some technical details and commentary on the EMC flashdrives that are a good follow-up to last week's news items on this at Robin Harris' Storage Mojo blog.
