El programa Insider no tiene fecha de caducidad, nos lo confirma Microsoft

Por Pedro Algar
http://windowsphoneapps.es/
insider windows 10
Si nos seguís en nuestra cuenta de Twitter, habréis visto que esta mañana hemos estado en un evento de Microsoft España con motivo de la presentación de Windows 10, por supuesto teníamos muchas dudas que hemos tratado de resolver para comunicároslas. Una de esas dudas estaba relacionada con el programa Insider que permite a cualquier usuario usar Windows 10 en versiones previas antes de su lanzamiento y que ya cuenta con más de cuatro millones de miembros.

w7-w8 a windows 10
Como sabéis ha habido una gran confusión sobre si los Insider tendrían o no una licencia valida solo por estar en él, la respuesta ya se confirmó es que no, si no tienes una licencia valida de Windows 7 o Windows 8.1, no podrás actualizar gratis a Windows 10, pero si podrás continuar en el programa Insider y mantener vuestro Windows 10 Insider Preview activo y plenamente funcional.

A esto se nos presentaba una pregunta ¿Qué pasaría si se finalizaba el programa?, recordemos que inicialmente este tenía fecha de caducidad aunque más tarde Microsoft confirmó que continuaría tras el lanzamiento de Windows 10 publicamente el 29 de Julio. Nuestra preocupación era conocer si había planes de una finalización futura o no, ya que ello influiría en miles de usuarios que están en el programa. Por este motivo le planteamos la pregunta a Fernando Calvo de Microsoft, su respuesta fue clara, Windows 10 ahora es un servicio y como tal continuará en el tiempo, no habrá un Windows 11 sino que se planea perpetuar el servicio con actualizaciones periódicas, como tal el sistema necesitará continuamente que se siga probando las futuras novedades antes de su lanzamiento publico, Microsoft planea seguir contando con los Insider para seguir probando estas novedades en versiones previas al lanzamiento público y de momento se prevé mantener el programa Insider indefinidamente.

Yahoo! se apoya en Oracle para su buscador

Por Eduardo Quintana 26/06/2015
Yahoo! Oracle
Yahoo! y Oracle alcanzan un acuerdo para aumentar las visitas del buscador de la compañía californiana.

Según indica The Wall Street Journal, Yahoo! aumentará la cuota de mercado de su buscador web gracias a Oracle, aunque no ha trascendido el beneficio que obtiene la compañía de software con el trato.

De esta forma, la CEO de Yahoo!, Marissa Mayer informó en la junta de accionistas de la compañía de las condiciones del acuerdo, por el cual Yahoo! ganará visitas gracias a que los usuarios que actualicen Java se les ofrecerá por defecto la opción de configurar Yahoo! como principal motor de búsqueda web.

Junto a esto, salvo que el usuario lo rechace expresamente, Yahoo! pasará a ser la página web de inicio del ordenador. El acuerdo resulta muy beneficioso si se tiene en cuenta que 9 de cada 10 ordenadores de Estados Unidos tienen instalado Java, gestionado por Oracle.

Así las cosas, Yahoo! pretende ganar porcentaje de visitas a Google y Bing, puesto que actualmente se encuentra en tercera posición con el 12,7% de cuota de mercado. Mientras tanto, Google acumula el 64,2% y Bing de Microsoft el 20,2%.

Houston tenemos un problema: Migrando a Oracle Database 12c con cursor_sharing='SIMILAR' => cambiar a FORCE o EXACT



APPLIES TO:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.0.6 to 11.2.0.4 [Release 11.1 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

BUG:5177766 - ENCOUNTER ORA-600 [17059] WITH CURSOR_SHARING=SIMILAR

DETAILS

We recommend that customers discontinue setting cursor_sharing = SIMILAR due to the many problematic situations customers have experienced using it. The ability to set this will be removed in version 12C of the Oracle Database (the settings of EXACT and FORCE will remain available). Instead, we recommend the use of Adaptive Cursor Sharing in 11g:

Document 740052.1 Adaptive Cursor Sharing: Overview
A number of customers have seen an increase in the number of child cursors since migrating to Oracle Database 11g Release 2. This can lead to many problems including complete CPU saturation of a machine requiring a database instance bounce or general database performance issues in the form of waits on mutexes and 'library cache lock'.

From Oracle versions 9.0 through 11.1, an oracle instance would limit the number child cursors in the shared pool associated with a single parent to 1024 before it would mark the parent OBSOLETE effectively invalidating it and all the children. Then a new parent with one child would be created and used going forward. But this would only limit the degradation of performance for some environments rather than fix something that could be addressed more effectively through improved application coding. (The attempt to address this from the database side also introduced other issues like bug 5177766). The child limit was removed by Oracle development because it was only masking an application problem at the expense of database performance for better designed applications. In addition, the obsolete code would not work in cases when SQL was wrapped within PL/SQL. The fundamental problem that obsolete code was masking is application code that was written incorrectly with regards to the ability to be shared. For example,  it is not written with user binds or the literal characteristics differ to a high degree.

Therefore, setting cursor_sharing = SIMILAR is highly discouraged in Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (and generally has not been recommended for most environments even in earlier versions) for several reasons:

1) This parameter is generally overly restrictive in what it actually allows to be shared. SIMILAR tells oracle to try and share cursors by replacing all literals with binds for legacy applications, but directs that sharing only be performed when all the replaced literal values were exactly the same (in the case of predicates referencing columns with histograms or using inequality operators such as BETWEEN, <, and !=)
2) This parameter seems to bypass a lot of the improvements made with Oracle Database 11g Adaptive Cursor Sharing feature and other abilities in the Cost Based Optimizer code to make better decisions on what execution plans should and should not be shared.
3) Having many child cursors all associated with 1 parent cursor could perform much worse than having many parent cursors that would be seen with having the default setting of cursor_sharing = EXACT (or FORCE). The scenario of many thousands of child cursors associated with 1 parent results in a potential bottleneck for searches for matching cursors (soft parsing) within the library cache.

The cursor_sharing parameter was introduced as a workaround for legacy applications that could not scale because they had not yet been redesigned to use bind variables. It has been presumed that most applications have been redesigned since then. If you are still using such an application, our recommendation is to set cursor_sharing = FORCE. This setting maximizes cursor sharing while leveraging the Adaptive Cursor Sharing framework to generate multiple execution plans based on different literal value ranges if necessary.
Note: In 11.2.0.3 and 11.2.0.4, although setting the parameter to SIMILAR will still be allowed, it will effectively behave as though cursor_sharing was set to FORCE.

ACTIONS

Change the cursor_sharing to either FORCE or EXACT, keeping in mind the effects of either.

Five Hints for Optimizing SQL - Jonathan Lewis
Adding hints to production code is a practice to be avoided if possible, though it's easy to make the case for emergency patching, and also as the basis for a method of generating SQL Plan Baselines. However, notwithstanding (and sometimes because of) the continuing enhancements to the optimizer, there are cases where the only sensible option is to constrain the broad brush strategy that the optimizer can take in a way that allows it to find a reasonable execution plan in a reasonable time. In this presentation we examine five of the "classic" hints that I believe are reasonable tactical weapons in the battle to beat the optimizer - (no_)merge, (no)_unnest, (no_)_subq, (no_)push_pred, and driving_site(). We will also glance briefly at a couple of other useful hints along the way.

Creating Test Data To Model Production - Jonathan Lewis
In this presentation we cover a few topics that you need to consider when setting up a framework for testing. First, how to generate large amounts of data quickly and repeatably; then how to ensure that the data content and pattern is a reasonable match to the system you want to emulate. We’ll examine a couple of cases to show that you can be caught out by such simple errors as creating indexes at the wrong point in your testing, and the differences between using CTAS (create table as select) and PL/SQL loops (especially run concurrently) to generate data.

Although it takes a lot of effort to create realistic models of production activity, we’ll also look at simple ways of modelling some aspects of concurrency, and show how concurrency can make a massive difference to what goes on inside the database – time permitting we will take a look at a few dumps of internal structures (disk and memory) to highlight some of the effects of concurrency.

Speaker Profiles
Jonathan is a well-known figure in the Oracle world with more than 25 years experience of using the database (and several years on other products). He has published three books, contributed to three others, runs a couple of websites and contributes fairly regularly to newsgroups, forums, User Group magazines, as well as speaking at events around the world. He has been self-employed for most of his time in the IT industry. He specialises in short-term assignments, typically of a design, review, or trouble-shooting nature.

Cloud and on-premises IT: Ready for a 'decade of coexistence'?


Competencia: Virtual Forge lanza el primer escáner de códigos SAP HANA

Business Wire
http://www.eleconomista.es

La novedad más emocionante dentro del mercado del software empresarial viene hoy de la mano de SAP: HANA y permitirá crear aplicaciones que revolucionarán el mundo de los negocios. La palabra clave es «predictivo», es decir, contar con la habilidad de anticipar acontecimientos y reaccionar en consecuencia lo antes posible.

Ya existen varios casos en los que las empresas pueden usar SAP HANA para realizar análisis predictivos. En el lanzamiento de producto de HANA, parte del SAP Business Suite 4, sus creadores presentaron una aplicación predictiva de mantenimiento diseñada para supervisar infraestructuras clave. Parece que el software está destinado también al análisis predictivo de la atención médica y la vigilancia.

También han aparecido otras aplicaciones interesantes en el contexto de los negocios. De acuerdo con el director general de SAP, Bill McDermott, «La red empresarial de SAP es dos veces mayor que la de Amazon, eBay y Alibaba juntos». Ahora las empresas podrán predecir las necesidades de los clientes y abarcar el potencial de negocio mucho más rápido. Esto supone el siguiente paso en la evolución de la comercialización de productos y servicios.

Por eso el éxito de HANA dependerá en gran medida de las aplicaciones que se desarrollen para conseguir materializar ese nuevo potencial empresarial. Las aplicaciones de HANA procesan datos de extremada importancia y están conectadas al mundo exterior a través de múltiples interfaces, por lo que estas nuevas soluciones tendrán que funcionar, no solo de manera estable y eficaz, sino, con la seguridad suficiente.

«El típico desarrollador de SAP que trabaja con la plataforma HANA tiene que enfrentarse a lenguajes de programación nuevos y tecnología muy diferente desde el principio», explica Andreas Wiegenstein, director de tecnología de Virtual Forge. «Por ese motivo es muy importante facilitar a los desarrolladores directrices sólidas para la escritura de código seguro, eficaz y resistente. También incluimos pruebas para prevenir errores lo antes posible, formar a los desarrolladores y minimizar los costes a largo plazo que suponen los fallos».

Virtual Forge son pioneros en el campo de la seguridad SAP y desarrollaron hace ocho años el primer escáner de códigos para SAP. Desde entonces, han aprovechado esa experiencia única para el desarrollo de productos y servicios. La empresa ha presentado CodeProfiler 4 para SAP HANA, la primera herramienta independiente concebida especialmente para desarrolladores de HANA. Esta novedad se podrá ver en directo en el próximo webinario de Virtual Forge.

Oracle Extends World’s Most Comprehensive Enterprise Cloud Portfolio

New platform and infrastructure services enable developers, IT professionals, and business users to drive innovation and accelerate digital transformation

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jun 22, 2015

Larry Ellison Unveils New Oracle Cloud Platform Services

At a live event today, Oracle Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison announced new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users and analysts to build, extend and integrate cloud applications. With more than 24 new cloud services, the Oracle Cloud Platform extends Oracle’s leadership with the world’s broadest and deepest portfolio of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Newly available Oracle Cloud services include, Oracle Database Cloud - Exadata, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, and Oracle Process Cloud.

The Oracle Cloud Platform helps customers build new applications, extend existing ones, and easily move existing on-premises workloads to the cloud with no application changes. The services are designed to maximize end user experience and productivity; enable developers to manage and analyze data, rapidly develop, test and deploy applications; enable architects to quickly integrate across on-premises and cloud applications; and enable business users to drive rich business insights and enterprise collaboration. With the Oracle Cloud Platform, customers and partners are able to take advantage of the industry-leading Oracle middleware and database software that thousands of global organizations already use to run their own businesses, all delivered via cloud. The extensive level of automation that has been engineered into the Oracle Cloud, results in faster time-to-value, greater innovation, and lower cost for customers.

“Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426M worth of business in SaaS and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That’s an industry record, no company has ever sold that much in just one quarter,” said Ellison. “Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud. Those technology advantages enable us to be much more cost-effective than our competitors. Our new Archive Storage service goes head-to-head with Amazon Glacier and it’s one-tenth their price.”

Oracle Cloud Platform is experiencing exponential growth and is already powering some of the world’s most recognizable brands and organizations. Oracle Cloud Platform has more than 1,800 customers with 1,419 added in the last quarter. Australian Finance Group, Avaya, and Calix are a few of the many organizations using currently available Oracle Cloud Platform services, including the Database Cloud, Java Cloud, Documents Cloud, Business Intelligence Cloud, and the Database Backup Service.




“According to IDC’s CloudView Survey, the top IT benefit of PaaS is having ‘a self-service environment for access to development and deployment tools’—and for business users the top benefit is ‘built-in integration with my SaaS applications,’” according to Robert Mahowald, program vice president, Cloud Software, IDC. “Having a full-service PaaS platform alongside a complete applications portfolio satisfies both needs, and users of the Oracle Cloud Platform benefit from access to the robust application development and deployment, data management, Big Data analytics, integration, and mobile capabilities, satisfying the key IT and LOB needs.”

Oracle Cloud continues to show strong adoption, supporting 70+ million users and more than 33 billion transactions each day. It runs on 54,000 devices and more than 700 petabytes of storage in 19 data centers around the world.

The new Oracle Cloud Platform and Infrastructure services now available:

Oracle Database Cloud – Exadata Service brings the full power of the Oracle Exadata database platform to the cloud. With this service, customers can run Oracle databases in the cloud with the same functionality, performance and availability of on-premises Oracle Exadata-based production databases, already in operation at thousands of mission critical sites worldwide. Oracle databases deployed in the cloud as part of this service are 100 percent compatible with those that are deployed on-premises, enabling a smooth migration to the cloud, as well as a seamless transition to a hybrid cloud strategy.

Oracle Archive Storage Cloud Service provides storage for applications and workloads that require long-term retention at the lowest price in the industry. As a “deep cloud” archive, the Archive Storage Cloud is suited for infrequently accessed large-scale data sets, such as corporate financial records, medical and pharmaceutical archives, cultural preservation content, insurance records and digital film masters. The service, backed by enterprise-grade SLAs, enables organizations to access archived documents and data sets using industry-standard APIs, and integration with Oracle and third-party backup, archival and preservation software. It also provides an additional tier for on-premises Oracle storage systems, including ZS Series, FS Series and Oracle StorageTek tape solutions.

Oracle Big Data Cloud Service and Big Data SQL Cloud Service provides a high-performance, secure platform for running diverse workloads on Hadoop and NoSQL databases to help enterprises acquire and organize Big Data. Combined with the new Big Data SQL Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud extends Oracle’s industry-leading implementation of SQL to Hadoop and NoSQL, providing users with a comprehensive Big Data Management System in an enterprise cloud.

Oracle Integration Cloud Service simplifies integration between the cloud and on-premises Oracle and third-party applications. Innovative new features, such as pre-built integrations and embedded best practice recommendations, provide an entirely new application integration experience. The Integration Cloud provides simple and intuitive application integration that combines business users’ ease-of-use requirements with the proven mission-critical foundation of Oracle SOA Suite.

Oracle Mobile Cloud Service simplifies enterprise mobility by removing the complexity in the mobile backend infrastructure. A next-generation Mobile Back-end as a Service (MBaaS), the Mobile Cloud allows developers to rapidly develop and deploy engaging mobile apps integrated with a robust enterprise-grade backend cloud infrastructure. Mobile app integration, mobile APIs and security are abstracted from developers, allowing them to collaborate effortlessly and quickly to develop and deliver mobile apps that run on any device and meet any business need. Additionally, with built-in mobile analytics, business stakeholders can gain insights into mobile app usage and adoption and personalize engagements.

Oracle Process Cloud Service enables business users to innovate and deliver process applications independent of IT. With a zero-code, cloud-based process automation platform, the Process Cloud empowers business users to manage the entire lifecycle of business processes and gain actionable insight on process health and SLAs. Business users can now deliver mobile workflows, automate manual processes, and customize SaaS applications.

“As part of modernizing our business, JDSU consolidated its extensive application footprint and moved key applications, like Oracle HCM, Talent Management and EPM, to the cloud,” said Rajeev Sethi, senior director, IT enterprise applications, JDSU. “The Oracle Cloud Platform portfolio, including the Database Cloud, Java Cloud, Integration Cloud and Business Intelligence Cloud services, have been instrumental in this success, They enable us to very easily move workloads to the cloud, extend our SaaS applications, integrate them with other cloud and on-premises systems and provide analytics for rich business insights.”

“By integrating Oracle Archive Storage Cloud Service with NetApp AltaVault our customers can streamline their utilization of cold storage and finally take advantage of a long-term archival service at a much lower price point,” said Phil Brotherton, vice president, Cloud Solutions Group, NetApp. “We are extremely excited that our long-standing relationship with Oracle continues to evolve, and together we enable customers to get the most out of the hybrid cloud.”

“Symantec’s goal is to allow customers to leverage the cloud as easily as they manage their on-premises infrastructure,” said Pablo Stern, senior vice president and CTO, Veritas business, at Symantec. “Our NetBackup™ and Enterprise Vault™ customers in particular are looking to leverage the cloud for flexible, cost-effective data storage. By integrating NetBackup and Enterprise Vault with the Oracle Archive Storage Cloud Service, we are providing customers seamless, secure, on-demand access to enterprise-grade cloud storage.”

“Partner Relationship Management (PRM) is critical for Avaya. We have about 20,000 partners worldwide serving our customers and a good portion of our revenue comes through that channel. Our current PRM application has become very complex and inflexible,” said Fari Ebrahimi, senior vice president and Global Chief Information Officer, Avaya. “With the goal to leverage our engagement solutions while we reduce cost, complexity and risk, we looked at a number of different offerings and eventually decided that Oracle is the best to help us achieve these goals for our next generation PRM solution. We selected Oracle Sales, Marketing and Social Cloud Services along with Java and Integration Cloud Services to provide extensions and integrations. With the new Oracle Cloud solution, integrated with our own engagement solutions, we expect to take our partner experience to the next level while reducing about 80 percent of customizations and 30 percent of ongoing costs.”

Error Reporte Estado de Salud de la base de datos en TOAD for Oracle 12.6.0.53

En las últimos días, he estado haciendo testing de la versión de Toad for Oracle 12. A la hora de generar el reporte del estado de salud de una base de datos Edición Estándar, me reporta un problema con el uso de dos características de la Edición Corporativa.


Al hacer click sobre el link de ayuda me aparece el siguiente texto:

"Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) offers several optional, extra cost add-ons that you must be properly licensed for in order to use directly or indirectly (i.e. via TOAD).  Note that these optional add-ons are often automatically installed and enabled in a databases created by Oracle's Database Creation Assistant (DBCA).  That includes the database generated by the Oracle installer - which simply calls DBCA after installing the software."

Al revisar el reporte, me doy cuenta que la utilidad tiene un pequeño problema de concepto. La opción de RAC no es exclusiva de E.E. La opción de cluster ( Real Application Cluster ) viene incluida en el costo de la Edición Estándar, con limitación a máximo 4 sockets físicos por configuración.

El "Parallel SQL Query Execution" es una característica propia en la Edición Estándar 11gR2 disponible a través del paquete "DBMS_PARALLEL_EXECUTE".

La diferencia entre esta funcionalidad y el paralelismo de E.E. es que usted puede hacer correr sólo una sentencia DML en paralelo, no así un bloque de PL/SQL.
