It’s such a simple, basic and old question I got from a colleague: “Do you have to pay for extended support?”. And if so, how much I have to pay for it. So basic and yet… always have to check again the waived support, what prices and where to find […]

After an upgrade of Oracle Enterprise Manager from 184.108.40.206 to 13.2, I wanted to deploy a new version of the plugin oracle.sysman.db. Downloaded the new version and got to the plugin-management page to apply the patch. But all I got was a blank page. Cost me quite a while to […]

Until recently, there was one rule when deploying Oracle software in the Azure cloud:
- count one Azure CPU Core as equivalent to one Oracle Processor license.

No Oracle stuff this time, but something I should have done a long time ago. Converting my very own private blog-site jobacle.nl – powered by WordPress – to SSL. When I started this blog-site, converting to SSL was a kind of a hassle, but nowadays there is a plugin that […]
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.
