We are excited to introduce support for Oracle R Distribution 3.0.1 on Windows 64-bit
versions. Previous releases are available on Solaris x86, Solaris SPARC, AIX and Linux 64-bit platforms. Oracle R Distribution (ORD) continues to support these platforms and now expands
support to Windows 64-bit platforms.
I'm very excited to intoduce a new InfoDev blogger. Meet Chet Liew, Principal Technical Writer for Oracle Communications based in Bend, Oregon. His previous roles at Oracle include time as a QA Engineer and Product Manager working with BRM and OSM.
More on Linux containers... the use of btrfs in particular and being able to easily create clones/snapshots of container images. To get started : have an Oracle Linux 6.5 installation with UEKr3 and lxc installed and configured.
lxc by default uses /container as the directory to store container images and metadata. /container/[containername]/rootfs and /container/[containername]/config. You can specify an alternative pathname using -P.
Tired as a DBA to have to manage separate users in multiple Oracle DBs over and over?
Tired as a user to have multiple login names and password to remember?
Tired to have no self-service solution to reset password?
Tired to face complex auditing questions to find out which user has which privilege?
Concerned that if you want to remove access to a user you might miss removing for some database?

I'm late to making it available here, but O'Reilly media published the video recording of my presentation on The Language of Discovery: A Toolkit For Designing Big Data Interactions from last year's (2012) Strata conference in NY.
Looking back at this, I'm happy to say that while my thinking on several of the key ideas has advanced quite a bit in the past 12 months (see our more recent materials), the core ideas and concepts remain vital.
Those are, briefly:
By now, you've probably heard about the release of Oracle Linux 6.5. One really cool thing about this release is that Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 3 is installed by default, meaning you get to use all the great features of UEK R3 without needing to do a separate installation. And are there a lot of great features in UEK R3! So, our spotlight this week is on the release notes for the latest version of Oracle's Unbreakable Enteprise Kernel.
