Ansible loop over registered results

By | DevOps | No Comments

We were recently confronted with one of our playbook constraint while trying to identify which database software could be uninstalled from our servers. Until now, we ran the playbook to de-install a specific version which were “discovered manually”. However, we even got lazy to run this “discovery phase” manually. This short post explains how to design a play around the results of a specific task like generating a list of obsolete Oracle RDBMS software.

Data virtualization on SQL Server with Redgate SQL Clone

By | Cloud, DevOps, SQL Server | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . In the previous blog post I’ve installed SQL Server on the Oracle Cloud. My goal was actually to have a look at Redgate SQL Clone, a product that automates thin cloning. The SQL Server from the Oracle marketplace is ok for SQL Clone prerequisites. There’s a little difference in .NET Framework version (I have 4.6 where 4.7.2 or later is required but that’s fine – if it was not an update…

DBPod – le podcast Bases de Données

By | AWS, Cloud, Database Administration & Monitoring, Database management, Development & Performance, DevOps, NoSQL, Oracle, Postgres, SQL Server | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . J’essaie quelque chose de nouveau. Je publie beaucoup en anglais (blog, articles, présentations) mais cette fois quelque chose de 100% francophone. En sortant du confinement, on reprend les transports (train, voiture,…) et c’est l’occasion de se détendre en musique mais aussi de s’informer avec des podcasts. J’ai l’impression que c’est un format qui a de l’avenir: moins contraignant que regarder une video ou ou lire un article ou une newsletter. Alors…

Oracle 20c SQL Macros: a scalar example to join agility and performance

By | Cloud, DevOps, Oracle | 2 Comments

By Franck Pachot . Let’s say you have a PEOPLE table with FIRST_NAME and LAST_NAME and you want, in many places of your application, to display the full name. Usually my name will be displayed as ‘Franck Pachot’ and I can simply add a virtual column to my table, or view, as: initcap(FIRST_NAME)||’ ‘||initcap(LAST_NAME). Those are simple SQL functions. No need for procedural code there, right? But, one day, the business will come with new…

To achieve this goal, 2 main products have been introduced at our customer by our DevOps team: Kubernetes (as the new “virtualization” platform) and Jenkins X (for CI/CD). Based on these 2…
