Wikipedia defines infrastructure as code as "the process of managing and provisioning computer data centers through machine-readable definition files, rather than physical hardware configuration or interactive configuration tools." This principle greatly simplifies setting up and managing large server parks, it also helps with repeatability and auditability in all environments. In a traditional Oracle database world…

Oracle's Fusion Middleware SOA suite is one of the most useful yet underutilized set of tools available to developers. To offer better services, businesses are forced to grow in complexity. As a result, integration with heterogeneous data sources and cloud services becomes necessary.  The downside of this trend is that businesses loose ability to effectively…

As prices for flash storage arrays begin to drop we expect to see a shift away from storage arrays based on spinning disk drives, especially when the effects of deduplication, compression, thin provisioning and lower power requirements are factored in to enterprise cost calculations.  Some arrays already on the market have an effective capacity greater…

Historical trends of the last decade lead to a paradox: In search of optimization, our solutions represent a group of independent modules communicating via various APIs (up to an extreme point of micro-services!) The overall number of performance problems increased significantly (comparing to the past, i.e. monolithic implementations). In addition, time to solve any performance…
