You know you’re a geek when…

Faced with the choice between drinking, dancing and eating at the OTN Night party or attending the OTN Installfest, you go to the OTN Installfest…

Without making myself sound even sadder than I am, this years Installfest had some quite exciting stuff in it.

Btrfs – You love Linux, but you wish it had an enterprise class filesystem. There’s one coming thanks to Oracle…

JRocket Virtual Edition – You want to provision a new App Server on Oracle VM. So you have to install and patch an OS and then install the app server right? Wrong! You use JRocket Virtual Edition which installs directly on Oracle VM. No OS, nothing!

Assembly Builder – You need to provision a new multi-server system on Oracle VM. Maybe 2 DNS servers, identity manager server, a 2 node RAC database and a couple of app servers. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could drag and drop a few boxes onto a screen, draw lines between them and fill in a couple of properties then hit go! I’ve seen a demo of just that. It takes OEL JeOS and Oracle VM Template Builder to the next level.

Wim Coekaerts and his team are stars.

Fun, fun, fun…

Cheers

PS. Oh yeah. Oracle Validated will soon be updated to work with 11g R2.
