Oracle Priority Service Infogram for 27-JUN-2013


It’s here! 12c, that is, and there are lots of posts and pointers to it showing up:

From Pythian: Oracle 12c RAC On your laptop, Step by Step Guide. To which I say: Fine, putting 12c RAC on your laptop. Pretty cool. But can you put it on a tablet?

From That Jeff Smith:

From Upgrade your Database - NOW!: Oracle Database 12c is available for download now!


Pythian asks the question: Do you know if your database is slow? I’d say it’s from all the people on the phone yelling at you, but they actually go into a bit more detail.






Opentext releases Opentext Archive Storage Server 10.5 on Solaris 11, at the Solaris and Systems Information for ISVs blog.
