Mark Wielaard: New GPG key. Finally created a new GPG key using gnupg. The old one was a DSA/1024 bits one and 8 years old. The new one is a RSA/2048 bits one. I will use the new one in the future to sign any release tarballs I might create. pub 2048R/57816A6A 2011-01-29 Key f...

Larry Ellision on Oracle's Hardware/Software Data Center Fusion Vision; and Our Agreement on "the Cloud"

Larry Ellison presented Oracle's vision of hardware and software fusion this afternoon, talking about servers, Solaris, Linux, Java, MySQL, and much more. Ellison said Oracle's research and development budget will exceed $4 Billion, "and why stop there?" The objective is to deliver complete, integrated systems, utilizing the host of components that are now are growing under the Oracle umbrella. Larry highlighted the recent additions to Oracle's management, saying Oracle has never had such an experienced management team. Larry returned to one of his pet peeves: the cloud. He cited comments from saying he doesn't understand "the cloud" because he (Larry) thinks everything runs on a box. Larry is quite common-sensical on this, in my view. A data center is a bunch of "boxes" -- I work in one. Believe me, calling it a "cloud" doesn't help us accomplish our 9's of uptime objective. A big part of Larry's discussion was about the size of the boxes. Do you use thousands of small boxes (PCs), or might it be better to have just a few enormously powerful boxes (like the Exalogic Elastic Cloud box, which has 360 processing cores, and 30 separate servers all in one box). The Exalogic provides the fastest Java performance today. "Elastic" means that if you need more processing power, you just launch new JVMs -- rather than having to deploy new hardware. The Exalogic can handle 1 Million H...
