Which Bitnami service to choose in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure?

By Franck Pachot

.
In the Oracle Cloud PaaS you have a marketplace where you can choose your service. Some are packaged from Bitnami and available on multiple OS. My first idea is that in PaaS you do not care about the OS. But Oracle Cloud has this very nice feature where you still have full access to the OS, as root, even in PaaS. Then, you choose the Linux distribution of your preference. Except if performance is different. They run on different Linux kernels. Is Oracle Linux Unbreakable Kernel more efficient?

Postgres, the fsync() issue, and ‘pgio’ (the SLOB method for PostgreSQL)

.
That’s a long blog post title, which is actually just a good pretext to play with Kevin Closson SLOB method for PostgreSQL: pgio
I use the beta version of pgio here. If you want to read more about it, you can start on https://kevinclosson.net/2018/05/22/sneak-preview-of-pgio-the-slob-method-for-postgressql-part-i-the-beta-pgio-readme-file/. If you are used to the SLOB for Oracle (https://kevinclosson.net/slob/) you will quickly understand the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of pgio.
