By | 2017-10-05T20:43:38+00:00 October 5th, 2017|Categories: Cloud, Database|Tags: , , |

Almost done. It’s not expected that tomorrow, thursday, will be a day full of new stuff, exciting news. Today, wednesday was a mix for me between ‘normal’ content like sessions about migrating to Oracle Enterprise 13.2 (another packed room) and a very interesting session about the Autonomous Database.  Just a […]

At Monday Oracle Open World really starts. A whole lot of general sessions with announcements and strategic directions on product / service level.

Just a quick note about day 1 at Oracle Open World. This Sunday traditionally is filled with presentations of usergroups, customers and product management, and at the end of the day the welcome-keynote. In the presentations there’s not really exciting news, they will have to wait until the keynotes. But […]

By | 2016-12-26T13:39:19+00:00 December 26th, 2016|Categories: Database, Oracle Enterprise Manager|Tags: , , , |

It’s a bit hard to choose the right heading for this article. How do you call setting up Oracle Management Cloud (OMC) – a trial environment – to explore the possibilities for monitoring the infrastructure such as hosts, databases, middleware. You don’t have to install OMC – it’s already there […]

Save money by understanding the Oracle licensing model – part I

By | 2016-08-29T16:41:17+00:00 August 28th, 2016|Categories: Database, licensing, Meta-DBA|Tags: , |

At several companies I worked for, there was a lot of confusion about the licensing model of Oracle. The general feeling was that they paid too much for their use of Oracle products, and they were not certain of their compliancy. This post will try to give some clarity about this issue.

By | 2016-05-27T16:10:41+00:00 June 1st, 2016|Categories: Database, Oracle Enterprise Manager|Tags: , |

Oracle Enterprise Manager 13C has been introduced as a ‘single pane of glass’. Managing and monitoring all the assets, in or out of the public cloud.

But when creating an RDS- database instance in Amazon’s cloud, it is monitored by Cloudwatch, and it’s not possible to install a so-called Oracle Hybrid […]

By | 2016-02-03T08:47:34+00:00 February 3rd, 2016|Categories: Database, Meta-DBA|Tags: , |

Heard about it at Oracle OpenWorld 2015: A new feature in Oracle Enterprise Manager 13c is the possibility to incorporate ORAchk, the healthcheck tool for databases, RAC and Engineered Systems.

This post is about downloading (and importing), deploying and provisioning the ORAchk-plugin. Spoiler-alert: there’s downtime involved of the OMS.

There are two […]

At the start of the each year, I always take the time to look back on the year we left behind. Last year, one of my most memorable experiences was Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco. The event has always been an overwhelming experience, but this year it seemed even more so. […]

Keeping track of Oracle licenses with OEM12c – reports

By | 2015-05-16T12:32:38+00:00 May 16th, 2015|Categories: Database, licensing|Tags: , , |

Wouldn’t be nice to get regularly informed how (in)compliant you are with Oracle licenses in an easy – centralized – way, and therefore not have to worry about visits of Oracle’s LMS – License Management Services? I think that would be nice for the most of us. Running LMS-scripts on […]
