Exadata and Oracle Database Appliance

It's an appliance, it's just been announced, and, this is not an icebox or a dishwasher by any measure of the term. The postings are starting to circulate on the blogosphere. Here is one from Amis Technology: Oracle Database Appliance – mid market Exadata in a scalable (license) model.

Bringing us some stealthy things about Exadata storage (stealthiness being a standard over at is this posting: Exadata Storage on Demand.

Critical Patch Update - September 2011

Oracle Security Alert for CVE-2011-3192 was released on September 15th, 2011.

Oracle strongly recommends applying Security Alert fixes as soon as possible.

The Security Alert Advisory is the starting point for relevant information. It includes the list of products affected, a summary of the security vulnerability, and a pointer to obtain the latest patches. Supported products that are not listed in the "Affected Products and Versions" section of the advisory do not require new patches to be applied.

Also, it is essential to review the Security Alert supporting documentation referenced in the Advisory before applying patches, as this is where you can find important pertinent information.

The Advisory is available at the following location:

This is some exciting technical news over at International Business News. I have long looked forward to the day when gaming can be harnessed to accomplish tasks in technology. In fact I'd like to see something like a version of Sim City connected to an RDBMS. Okay, I admit that I found Farmville extremely annoying, but if people were paying small amounts of real money for gamers to carefully keep storage configured on a growing system, for instance, or respond to complex deadlocks on an application that would appear in the form of a puzzle in the metaverse, I think it would have both IT and business potential. The various tasks of the game are translated into a real world application. Online Gamers Solve AIDS Puzzle that Eluded Scientists
