At the Oracle Enterprise Manager blog: Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Testing-as-a-Service Solution.


Of note this week from Red Gate, a new genre in technical writing: RDBMS noir: The Case of the Missing Index (first installment of the The Top 5 Hard-earned lessons of a DBA series.


Big data, it's more than a buzzword, it's here and now. I've recently been fortunate enough to by given a Safari Online books account, and started exploring Hadoop. Consider this:

"We live in the data age. It’s not easy to measure the total volume of data stored electronically, but an IDC estimate put the size of the “digital universe” at 0.18 zettabytes in 2006 and is forecasting a tenfold growth by 2011 to 1.8 zettabytes.[2] A zettabyte is 1021 bytes, or equivalently one thousand exabytes, one million petabytes, or one billion terabytes. That’s roughly the same order of magnitude as one disk drive for every person in the world.
This flood of data is coming from many sources. Consider the following:

·   The New York Stock Exchange generates about one terabyte of new trade data per day.
·   Facebook hosts approximately 10 billion photos, taking up one petabyte of storage.
·, the genealogy site, stores around 2.5 petabytes of data."

This really is a must see. The capabilities of the human mind are sometimes hard to comprehend for…the human mind: World's fastest number game wows spectators and scientists.

So, having mastered the abacus above you’re ready to become a rocket scientist? Here’s a guide to your console (with snarky notes on the flight surgeons): Apollo Flight Controller 101: Every console explained

Low power chips are gaining ground and will probably start melding with nano-technology in the next decade or two to create swarms of networked devices. Imagine, for instance, that you are able to save money on processors in the digitally savvy home of the near future by having a system that load balances across all devices in the house. For instance you are running something intensive on your tablet and it is able to enlist unused processors from the cars in the garage to speed things up. This of course leads to the inevitable time in the future when smart toasters take over the world. So I'm throwing out my toaster before it's too late.
