Occasionally you come across a blog posting which requires a more permanent awareness campaign behind it than posting a link to it on Twitter or FriendFeed. (Funny how the only way to do that is to post a link to it on your blog…)
Check out Jeff Browning’s attempt to explain (from a “recovering lawyer’s” point of view) What the Oracle / VMware support statement really means…and why.
As virtualization continues to expand across the datacenter, Oracle applications are a high priority target for virtualization. This topic comes up from all my customers and is something that I have been involved in discussing mulitple times with each one. Jeff’s detailed analysis of Oracle’s support statement does a great job of blowing the chaff away.
