I passed the 1Z0-932- exam, known as “Oracle Cloud Infrastructure 2018 Architect Associate”. This was not a ‘walk in the park’ (for me), so I decided to share some experiences of my preparations. What not to do and what definitely should be done. I already had some experience with the […]
Oracle licensing is mostly a substantial part of the costs of running Oracle software. And every change in the Oracle environment, whether it is about new hardware, going to the cloud, or up- or down- scaling, licensing is involved.
