Holiday Gifts: An ARX For Me, A BIG-IP Oracle OEM Plug-in for You!

This holiday season I received a big box from our Data Solutions Group that I’m told contains an ARX

Oracle Keynote at Cloud Expo

Well, this is my “on vacation” blog, so I’ll keep it short.

This holiday season I received a big box from our Data Solutions Group that I’m told contains an ARX for my play-time and will no doubt fill your reading time in the new year.

Assuming you read my blog anyway ;-). Those guys rock, and pulled through for me in a  major way to get this delivered.

I’m stoked to have one to play with, and will blog for you from set-up to messing with it. I’m terrible about that.

Give me new hardware and I play with it until I understand most of the ways it breaks and how to fix it. Most breaks in the IT realm are user error, so I can make just about anything break if I tinker with it long enough.

And the gift for you this festive time of year? Oracle and F5 are finished testing the BIG-IP plug-in for Oracle Enterprise Manager. So if you’re an Oracle customer with BIG-IP LTMs deployed, pop over to the Oracle pages of DevCentral and download the plug-in. It’s certified by Oracle, and monitors your BIG-IP like any other bit in OEM.

At this time you have to be a registered user on DevCentral, but we will no doubt be like all the other OEM Grid controls available on Oracle TechNet. Sorry for the inconvenience, but this stuff doesn’t happen overnight and this is an iffy time of year to count on people being around to update websites and such.

Meanwhile, anyone want to take a guess at which geek toys I picked up for Lori this year? Anyone?

Until next time – which will likely be next year since I’m off until the 4th, and traveling the 4th…

And no, the picture is not the ARX I expect to find in that box… Mine should be smaller ;-).

Don.

The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda.

A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
