Although we are still in stealth mode (kind-of), due to the overwhelming requests for information, we decided to publish a video about what we do :)
It’s a short 5-minute video, just click on the image below or go straight to http://gluent.com:
Oracle has a complete family of data management products that solve all use cases.(read more)
There are some questions about Oracle that are like the mythical Hydra – you think you’ve killed it, but for every head you cut off another two grow. The claim that “the optimizer will switch between using an index and doing a tablescan when you access more than X% of the data” re-appeared on the OTN database forum a little while ago – it doesn’t really matter what the specific value of X was – and it’s a statement that needs to be refuted very firmly because it’s more likely to cause problems than it is to help anyone understand what’s going on.
Here’s an Easter present for everyone out there.
Hi, it took a bit longer than I had planned, but here’s the first Gluent New World webinar recording!

If you like this stuff, please share it too – let’s make this series totally awesome!
I’ve written a bunch of stuff about WebLogic over the last few years, but it’s kind-of scattered throughout the site. When I was gearing up for my session at the Middleware SIG recently I figured it was about time I collected it all together, so I added a new WebLogic page to the site. It’s on the menu and the quick links.
Much the same as the SQL and PL/SQL pages, it really is just a bunch of links to other stuff. I tend to put my articles in version-specific locations, because it suits me, but I realise it’s not ideal for everyone. I think this gives me the best of both worlds.
After a what seems like an eternity of being ill and having a dodgy throat, followed quickly by a couple of conferences, I’ve finally got back on the horse and recorded another video.
I was explaining a specific aspect of the MERGE statement to one of my colleagues and while I was doing it I was thinking, “Have I done a video on MERGE yet?” Now I have.
The cameo for this video is Cary Millsap. If you watch the out-takes at the end you will see the level of respect and trust I have garnered in the community. The words confused and suspicious spring to mind!
I appreciate killing two birds with one stone. I’m all about efficiency and if I can satisfy more than one task with a simple, productive process, then I’m going to do it. Today, I’m about to:
There’s a current question on the OTN database forum as follows (with a little cosmetic adjustment):
I have a request for 3 indices as shown below. Does the 1st index suffice for 2 and 3? Do I need all 3?
In the absence of any information about the data and the application the correct answer is: “How could we possibly tell?”
