Maybe so, but without DEC and Rdb, most of the technology used in RAC, and RDBMS itself would still be floundering as it did prior to the Rdb purchase which is why Larry bought it in the first place - and then licensed the cluster technology out of Tru64 from HP. I won't "bore" you with all of the other technologies that DEC either designed or brought to market that makes the technology world what it is today... but, you can start with ethernet(collaborative effort) and 64bit computing. DEC had marketing problems which showed in their decisionmaking  processes - but had really great engineering - hardware and software - down to their chip design and manufacturing. Oh well, back to the present.

Hope you have a wonderful day down under. Received on Tue Jan 10 2012 - 07:24:43 CST
