Sun's X4500: Cheapest data server for Oracle RAC?



Well this is much in line with the SAN vs SATA battle that we once spoke about and also built a server.

Sure Sun went ahead and delivered it to you on a silver platter! Really cool product! I'm beginning to feel that Sun's back! Good going, Jonathan!

Imagine you can just say your big fat SAN goodbye. We are talking about our biggest big daddy Oracle (RAC /Standard) database on one server.

Or the stuff recommended by Sun :

Designed For You

* HPC/Grid
* Business Intelligence/Data Analytics
* Digital Media Streaming
* Digital Video Surveillance
* Nearline Storage

That sure is a purty little thang!







This is an amazing way for SMB market and I am thinking of Universities and
Schools across Africa, India, Argentina, Brazil to name a few. I already know what I'm gonna be proposing to the Uganda team coming this September.

Imagine this 64bit AMD dual core server, 16G RAM and the whole stack from db, web apps, ldap,crm/erp, mail etc built on the virtualization layer like VI3 OR free VMware Servers! w00t :-)

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them.
