    I'm not very technical, but I felt that it would be a good idea to convert my Microsoft Outlook address book into an Oracle database running in a RAC configuration within Linux. Please be detailed since I don't know much about computers.


    lollers. :mamoru:


    Have you ever noticed how the people on this forum who generally include "I'm not very technical" tend to ask for help doing some of the craziest shit?

    Oracle? And Linux? Combined?

    Good luck and godspeed.

    EDIT: Use Thunderbird and MySQL instead. They're both free and MySQL isn't saddled with the shittiest interface known to mankind. Oh, and Thunderbird has a much better spam filter than Outlook.

    Oracle RAC running on Linux is a Tier 1 solution that Oracle provides. It can run on their version of linux, redhat, or suse.

    You don't need luck nor god to run this. Just money.

    Another wonderful post by Mr."know it all"...

    as stated by Crontab, Oracle has their own version of Linux (Called "unbreakable Linux or Oracle Enterprise) which is basically CentOS, but only slightly modified...

    Oracle DBA,RAC, and most Hyperion/Essbase stuff run now in the Linux world on Oracle...

    They are pretty much shifting to it

    Have fun with your RAID 3 playtoys :rolleyes:

    Oh, I'm sure the whizzes at Oracle can get it to run on a dedicated Linux DB server quite well. But we're talking about some dude who wants to put his Contacts list into an Oracle DB on (probably) Ubuntu or something similar, and who admittedly doesn't know a lot about computers. But you two (crontab and Haray) are clearly big-picture kinda guys; I guess minutae such as relevant details are beneath your purview.

    MySQL is open-source and GPL-protected. Oracle might have bought Sun's portion of the intellectual property, but they can't fuck it up and make it unusable. GPL protects the rights of non-aligned developers to keep the entirety of the code and to continue to distribute it for free, forever, with no recourse on Oracle's part. The only thing they can hope to do is to make a better product and give it away for free, a possibility which I'm disinclined to complain about.

    I guess the sentence

    "Have you ever noticed how the people on this forum who generally include "I'm not very technical" tend to ask for help doing some of the craziest shit?"

    Went right over your head.

    No, I noticed it, but it was beside the point; it has nothing to do with what he actually wants to do. Or are we having trouble distinguishing between functional requirements and chit-chat?
