Oracle is now joining the OpenStack Foundation and planning on using the OpenStack technology in a wide variety of its products, including Oracle Solaris. This is pretty exciting generally and I think that OpenStack shows a huge amount of promise and ties together functionality that customers have been looking to have for quite some time.
When running the CC&B (and OUAF) framework upgrade scripts, it is not uncommon to encounter "duplicate record" type errors, usually caused by custom records inserted with values which do not conform to the standard naming convention (custom fields are recommended to be prefixed with CM), or instances where accelerator-related fields are bundled into the base product.
During the last half of 2012 and the first half of 2013,
Simon Miller and I wrote a book on release 7.9.6.x of Oracle BI
Applications. In this book we cover how
to justify the purchase of BI Applications, what a typical project looks like,
the architecture of the product, and overviews of the subject areas. We did not cover 11.1.1.x because it was not
shipping when we wrote the book. We do
not cover the material covered in the documentation.
I'm very excited that Oracle is now a Corporate Sponsor of the OpenStack™ Foundation. My team is getting close to code complete for making OpenStack™ work with Solaris. The initial plan is to make the Nova Compute, the Neutron Network and the Cinder Object Storage Modules work with Solaris and contribute the changes back to the upstream OpenStack™ code base. This will allow customers to use OpenStack™ to manage Solaris-based clouds, taking full advantage of the stability, efficiency, performance, scalability and security of Solaris.
