    Larry Ellison to Announce OLTP Database Machine on… Sun Hardware
    +2 Vote Up -6Vote Down

    In line with my prediction from few days ago, Larry Ellison is announcing the new Database Machine — the new version is targeting OLTP workloads and is based on Sun hardware.

    Looks like I just got the date wrong. Oh well, now is the announcement, hype and demo is at the Oracle Open World and shipments are to

    Oracle Exadata v2 — Truly Oracle (Sun) Hardware
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Update 16-Sep-09: Apparently, all this was true and you can find more details after the announcement that posted here.

    OK. It’s not often that I make predictions these days but this was on my mind for a while so here we go. Mind you, I don’t have any confirmed insider information so it’s based on some assumptions, my perspective on Oracle-Sun acquisition and some vibes I can feel in the air.

    The rumors are that Oracle Exadata v2 and Oracle Database Machine v2 are going to be announced within few weeks and my take is that it’s going to happen at the Oracle Open World. I don’t think it comes as a surprise to anyone that it will be configured

    Debian unstable on a Sun Fire T1000
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    So i got the T1000 working again (finally, after much screwing about trying to get the part). I then hit the ever annoying “no console” problem, where the console didn’t work – kind of problematic.

    After a firmware upgrade, and passing “console=/dev/ttyS0″ to the kernel, things work.

    So the T1000 firmware 6.3 doesn’t work with modern debian kernels. Thing swork with 6.7 though.

    Script to start lots of MySQL Cluster nodes on Sparc CMT
    Employee_Team +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I recently had the chance to play with the new T5140 servers. Using the Sparc CMT architecture, these servers present an amazing 128 cpu's to you to use (as a combination of cores and compute threads, there are 2 sockets only).

    We are doing some trials with eager Sun customers who want to utilize these babies. The good news is that MySQL Cluster 7.0 (aka 6.4) will support a multi-threaded data node option. The bad news is, one ndbd process still only uses about 8 CPU cores, so to utilize 128, there is some way to go! So the bad news is we still have to launch many ndbd processes to get out the full power of these boxes. But the good news is that with 7.0 there is at least a point in trying at all.

    I developed a simple script which lets me easily start a varying amount of ndbd and mysqld processes on one host (and then copy the script to also start same amount of

    Sun's Q2 Financial Results
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    These are my spoken notes from last week's earnings call - rather than recraft them, I figured I'd simply republish.

    _______________________________

    And thank you all for joining us this afternoon. 

    I'll start with some perspective on our Q2 results and the current climate, then follow-up with commentary on our products disclosure - slides 6 and 7 in the slide deck. Then I'll turn it over to Mike Lehman (Sun's CFO) for commentary on financial metrics, and an update on the restructuring plan we announced back in November.

    Overall, results for Q2 were in line with what we expected, as macro worries factored into customer discussions across all geographies. These concerns resulted in decisions related to higher end system purchases being pushed out - so billings were down year over year for
