Support Policies

The riddle of the Sphinx in Greek mythology was "What goes on four legs in the morning, on two legs at noon, and on three legs in the evening?" Oedipus gave the correct answer: man, who crawls on all fours as a baby, walks on two legs as an adult, and walks with a cane in old age. Although Oedipus encountered some really nasty problems later, he won this round with the Sphinx, who destroyed itself when faced with a correct answer. 

Programs don't have legs, and they just plain get old. As they do, the available support changes. You can find out more about the stages of the process here, and it's a good idea to check in once in a while to find out the latest, since policies change over the years: LIFETIME SUPPORT STAGES.

It's pretty rare that we post jobs here at the Infogram (in fact I think this is a first). But when an Oracle blog that has been a consistent favorite for technical wisdom on data warehousing is looking to hire I'm happy to pass it along.

And while you are preparing for your interview you can read their latest technical article: Sizing for data volume or performance or both?


The folks over at A-Team - Exalogic and Cloud Application Foundation introduce us to the wonderful open source world of ThreadLogic.
