14 Mar 2013 Patching Oracle Exalogic – Updating Linux on the Compute Nodes Part I [30159]
How to Maintain Availability During Update

"Patching Oracle Exalogic – Updating Linux on the Compute Nodes Part I," by Jos Nijhoff, deals with patching the operating system on the modified Sun Fire X4170 M2 servers running Oracle Linux. Nijhoff explains that patching the compute nodes can be done in rolling fashion, maintaining application availability during the upgrade, if the application is deployed in redundant (HA) fashion, for example in a Weblogic cluster spread over more that one physical node. Users can patch one compute node at a time or multiple nodes in parallel. Nijhoff uses the installation of the Exalogic patchset (patch 13569004).

15 Feb 2013 Examining Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 Secure Copy Performance for High Latency Networks [29787]
Findings Reveal Significantly Improved Performance

With Oracle Solaris 10 1/13, the performance of secure copy or scp is significantly improved for high latency networks Brian posts. Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 enabling a TCP receive window size up to 1 MB has up to 8 times faster transfer times over the latency range 50 - 200 msec compared to the previous Oracle Solaris 10 8/11, he writes, adding that the default TCP receive window size of 48 KB delivered similar performance in both Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 and Oracle Solaris 10 8/11. Settings above 1 MB for the TCP receive window size delivered similar performance to the 1 MB results.

18 Jul 2012 Oracle Aligns x86 Rackmount and Blade Server with Oracle Engineered Systems Naming Conventions [26949]
Changes also Apply to Netra Carrier Grade Servers

Oracle has renamed its Sun x86 servers and Netra servers to align them with the naming conventions of Oracle’s Engineered Systems, which have always used Oracle’s x86 rackmount systems as the basis of its integrated and optimized solutions. Thus, for example, the former Sun Fire X4170 M3 Server is now the Sun Server X3-2 and above; the Sun Netra X4270 M3 is now Netra Server X3-2; the Sun Blade X6270 M3 is now the Sun Blade X3-2B, and so on.
