Exadata, Hyperion, EBS, APEX, AIA, Performance


Interested in Exadata? If you are running an enterprise scale RDBMS you really should investigate it. Kevin Closson has a link to a good white paper to help you along your way:


You've seen a lot of links here to the Look Smarter Than You Are blog, and here's another one. They have their book out, and it's available in all forms on Amazaon (yes, including on the Kindle!):


This week at the Oracle E-Business Suite Technology blog:


APEX is one of Oracle's best products. I don't feel it gets the publicity it deserves, but it's out there, day after day, plugging away, running a formidable amount of online apps. Tom Kyte was one of the early adopters and advocates of APEX, and has an interesting under the covers article on the move of his AskTom site from a conventional RDBMS (with him as DBA) to running completely on APEX.

Did you take part in the APEX Developer Competition for 2009? David Peake has the results here.


Another of the phalanx of new and/or newish products at Oracle is AIA. I have deep knowledge of AIA, or at least enough depth to recognize the acronym as one of our products. Any product that can discuss interoperability between PIPs with a straight face, as this one does over at the official AIA blog, is a cool product.


Great news in the realm of performance blogs! James Morle, Oak Table Net member and author of one of the best performance books back in the 8i days, has started a blog. Here are links to the first couple of postings:
