Very large customers with many interconnected Oracle Databases may need to follow the CPU Patch

Came across an article from InfoWorld http://www.infoworld.com/d/security/fundamental-oracle-flaw-revealed-184163-0 If you are supporting very large customers with many interconnected Oracle Databases then there is a possibility of getting a strange bug with SCN. Was wondering if this has ever happened at any customer base or just at the InfoWorld

Good Bye 2011 and Welcome 2012

I wish every one a Happy New Year 2012.

2011 for me was great. It was fun and a thrilling year. I was busy with my one year old son and could not blog much. He kept me busy and took away all my spare time which I used to learn and blog.

Yet with the left over time I was able to master Fusion Middleware 11g Technologies.

Otherwise I saw the big event from Oracle "Open World 2011".
Oracle was very bold in introducing the Exadata , Exalogic and Exalytics hardware.
Oracle got a foot into Cloud Computing and Social Networking.

Oracle and Competitors that kept me very busy. It also gave me a better understanding of what the future is going to be.
- Netezza TwinFin started a lots of discussion explaining and comparing their product with Exadata.
- EMC Greenplum doing the same as Netezza (but more of from storage)
- To join them Teradata gave their explanation for their Exadata Replacement at a Japanese Customer Place.
- Salesforce.com vs Oracle Cloud (everybody who followed Open World will know it better).

Some new products which excited me are Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c and Weblogic 12c.

Wish that I have more time to start blogging this year.
