Because the Banana Pi comes with a SATA connector it gives you the possibility to hook up an SSD or other hard drive. Besides it even provides a 5V power connector allowing you to power an SDD right from the board. Just be cautious with the power connector’s polarity, I had to switch the wires of my SATA power cable to get things right!
Although the new Raspberry PI has almost the same hardware under the hood, I just couldn’t resist to compare it with its predecessor on the test bench.
As expected, the outcome of the tests doesn’t show a performance difference between the old and the new version…. but although there is no difference in performance, power consumption is another story. During benchmarking, the Pi’s were connected to a bench top power supply to monitor their power consumption. This is the result.
I have been working a growing number of customers assisting them with their usage of Oracle Database Spatial support through TopLink. Actually my first exposure with Spatial and TopLink dates back to 1999, long before I joined (through acquisition) Oracle. It was an extended consulting engagement assisting Oracle Consulting in their usage of TopLink on a customer's application.
Continuing with my previous post about using Docker in development/testing environment now the case is how to build an Oracle NoSQL cluster in single machine using Docker. I assume that you already have docker installed and running, there are a plenty of tutorial about that and in my case using Ubuntu is just two step installer using apt-get :)
