11gR2 RDBMS and OWB, Hyperion, EBS, Security, RDBMS Internals, Cloud Storage


Thinking about moving to 11? There's a good list of new features for you to consider over at the In 2 Hyperion blog.


New this week at the Oracle E-Business Technology Blog:

Thirteen New E-Business 12.1.1 Database-Tier Only Certifications for 10gR2

Spotlight on E-Business Suite Sessions at OpenWorld 2009

Interim Update: Certifying the 11gR2 Database with the E-Business Suite


Ready to take 11gR2 out for a test drive? Here are some of the funnest bells and whistles to tweak, courtesy of the Structured Data blog:

Top 10 Oracle 11gR2 New Features

11gR2 OWB

Over at the Rittman Mead Consulting blog there is a series about OWB 11gR2 and BI EE. 11gR2 RDBMS got most of the fanfare, but there is a new version of OWB out as well, and it has some valuable features. See part one of a series on OWB 11gR2 and BI EE – Deriving the Business Model here.


Summer R & R. That's Rest & Relaxation, or for some of us, Reading & Relaxation. But for Oracle's Chief Security Officer, Mary Ann Davidson, the relaxation comes in the form of a lot of interesting thoughts on cybersecurity and the nature of legislation (good and not so good). And there are even notes on summer reading to relax after the serious part.

RDBMS Internals

Do you stay awake nights wondering if buffer cache can be stored inside the shared pool? Then this posting on that very subject from Tanel Poder, internals guru, is for you.

In another posting at his blog he has some help for performance DBAs looking to find the hot spot (in Oracle's reality, a hot spot is not a really rocking club to be sought out, but a place of I/O contention to be avoided). The posting is called latch: cache buffers chains latch contention – a better way for finding the hot block.

Cloud Storage

Backblaze is making some noise. They released plans on how to build massive high density cloud storage arrays for $100 a terabyte, as Robin Harris reports over at Storage Mojo. My question is, once you have the cloud stored, do you have to take it out once in a while to air it out? Doesn't it zip back up into the sky when you do that? I'm just not as technical as I used to be.
