I love Oracle. I’m not a DBA or even a halfway decent technologist. Just a semi-technical HR guy. But when Oracle came out with 10g application servers last year, I was a pretty excited guy. I saw a new press release about 10g and thought I’d write a little note.
We probably all know about Oracle clusters that have been out for a while. Clusters allow multiple servers to share processing power. Oracle app server and DB server 10g allow disparate clusters to share processing. Basically it’s a cluster of clusters. It’s the most powerful engine out there and it scales like no other. This means that your system should almost never bog down because there’s bandwidth an a server somewhere in the network.
