Discussing “right -sizing” at AUFO

In March the annual AUFO event took place in PARIS and it was a very interesting day for us. With an attendance of over 350 participants, this day event in the heart of Paris is a yearly rendez-vous for French speaking Oracle users as well as People Soft and JD Edwards. I was fortunate to […]

A lesson in planning for the unexpected on a grand scale!

Most of us are familiar with the challenges the Philippines face as the most hurricane/typhoon susceptible country in the world.

Are You A Leader Or A Manager?

  Ever notice that the term ‘leader’ gets thrown around a lot?  An often used word and most people think that they know what it means.  People talk about their elected ‘leaders’ or the ‘leaders’ of corporations.  If you have a title does that make you a leader?   This topic has always fascinated me.  Hundreds […]

Great News – Dbvisit Replicate 2.6 Is Out!

The wait is over.  One of the great things about smaller companies is that we are much more agile than some of our competitors.  Rather than have a large release every 2-3 years we respond to our customers and give them features that they want sooner.  This means that we will come out with smaller […]

This is a great class that […]

Oracle SE Vs. Oracle EE: Much Ado About Nothing, Or… Pure Gold? Not Too Hard To Pan Out!

We have a large customer (hosted by a great infrastructure outsourcer partner of ours) who recently went through the process of decommissioning their Oracle Enterprise Edition licenses and recommissioning all business systems to run on Oracle Standard Edition. After looking at a number of different solutions they purchased Dbvisit Standby, our answer to Data Guard […]

Adding Dbvisit Replicate as an Oracle Clusterware Resource

Today I decided to play with Oracle Clusterware and Dbvisit Replicate version (2.5.10) using a two node Oracle RAC environment as source, and a single instance as target.  The idea is to add Dbvisit Replicate to clusterware as a resource and allow it to fail-over between the nodes as required. For example, if Dbvisit Replicate […]
