A colleague of mine in Oracle’s Real-World Performance Group just pointed out to me that the link (on my Papers, Webcasts, etc page) to the archived webcast of Part IV in my Oracle Exadata Storage Server Technical Deep Dive Series was stale. Actually, the problem turns out that I mistakenly set the file to expire after a fixed number of downloads. I didn’t think it would get downloaded 500 times but it seems I was wrong.
I just fixed it, so if you’ve tried to get Part IV and hit this problem also, please give it a go now. For those of you who don’t know about this series, please visit my Papers, Webcasts, etc page where I have posted a description of each archived webcast.
Where’s Part III?
I am still on the hook for doing Part III again to recover from the loss of the IOUG recording. Part III goes into the aspect of Exadata architecture known as the division of work. Understanding the division of work is important for folks trying to decide what sort of configuration they’d have to assemble to match the performance of an Exadata deployment (e.g., HP Oracle Database Machine). I’ve been very interrupt-driven lately so I have not been able to do the Part III over again. I’ll post a blog entry when it is available.
