Oracle Storage Service: Geo Replication – you must set this!

Configuring the Oracle Storage replication policy should be step number zero if you start in the Oracle cloud with any service. I cannot stress this often enough. Many services such as DB as a service or Java Cloud service will not work without it. Even ACCS – a much newer and higher level PaaS service – will not work unless you set this storage policy.

  • For now: go and set the policy. I got into all kind of trouble trying without. Trust me, you won’t have the time for this.
  • To make cloud services such as JCS or ACCS work it is not so much important how you set the replication policy, it it just important that you set it. Functionally of course, there is a big difference if you data will be replicated asynchronously to another data center or not.
  • IMHO this should be improved by Oracle

Oracle provides several replication policies. Broadly, they belong to one of the following types:

Oracle OTN Tour 2017 Sao Paulo: Getting Started with Java Cloud Service (JCS)

At the 2017 OTN stop in Sao Paulo I did my first presentation to help customers to get started with Oracle Java Cloud Service (JCS).

 There are  actually a few showstoppers that make customer’s experience more difficult than it should be in my opinion. I will blog about them later in autumn – for now please have a look at my presentation on Slideshare.

 

Cloud, Microservices and Container Workshop in South Africa!

Lot’s of people are talking about these topics nowadays. Heaps of slides and samples are available for download, lots of presentations can simply be streamed from youtube.

In Johannesburg we were working with these solutions hands-on: I delivered a 3 day Cloud, Microservices and Containers workshop on behalf of Oracle.

Find attached some impressions from the smart and fun group of devs and architects I was working with.
