Oracle’s Netra Modular System Brings Converged Infrastructure to the Communications Industry

Oracle Database News - Fri, 02/27/2015 - 17:00
Oracle’s Netra Modular System Brings Converged Infrastructure to the Communications IndustryNew integrated platform helps customers bring services to market faster, lower operational risks, and improve business agility

Redwood Shores, Calif. – February 27, 2015 – Oracle brought its converged infrastructure strategy to the communications industry today with the Netra Modular System, the first integrated platform to merge traditional blade and rackmount architectures, networking and storage to support network function virtualization (NFV).

NFV uses traditional IT and server virtualization techniques to implement network functions as software that can run on industry-standard servers. With the Netra Modular System, NFV can help reduce capital and operational expenditures and accelerate product and service introduction.

“Reducing costs, maximizing constrained resources, getting services to market faster— the business and IT challenges facing service providers, network equipment providers, and others in the communications industry remain ever-present,” said Raju Penumatcha, senior vice president, Netra Systems and Networking, Oracle. “Netra Modular System capitalizes on Oracle’s ability to engineer hardware and software together to deliver NFV infrastructure with Oracle’s latest servers, software and networking all managed, supported, and upgradable as an integrated platform.”

Netra Modular System is a quick-to-deploy, pre-integrated platform that can help customers accelerate application and service development, reduce risk and lower maintenance costs. It supports Oracle Server X5-2 and Oracle’s new Netra Server X5-2, allowing customers to choose either industry-standard or carrier-grade rackmount servers designed for high-performance communication workloads and cloud infrastructure deployments. Netra Server X5-2 offers 2x the number of cores, 1.5x more memory and 2x the storage capacity compared to the previous generation. SPARC platform support is also planned for 2016, which is slated to make the Netra Modular System a multi-instruction set architecture and multi-operating system platform.

“Dialogic has used Oracle’s Netra systems for many years in successfully delivering Dialogic’s ControlSwitch™ System – an unmatched Class 4 softswitch and IMS MGCF - to top service providers worldwide,” said Jim Machi, senior vice president of product management and marketing at Dialogic. “Whether they are deploying NGN or VoLTE networks, today’s service providers demand an ever-increasing level of performance, expandability, reliability and serviceability in telecoms infrastructure platforms. We look forward to delivering even higher performing solutions to our customers with Oracle’s new Netra systems. Dialogic and its customers value Oracle’s high quality and highly reliable Netra products.”

“As communications service providers seek infrastructure to support NFV, Oracle’s Netra Modular System offers a new architecture that incorporates the best of bladed systems and independent rackmount servers in a single platform,” said David Krozier, principal analyst at Ovum. “This new infrastructure platform should be particularly attractive to communications customers who want to virtualize their compute, network and storage infrastructure based on high volume general market products, but still need to support five 9's or greater availability. The Netra Modular System’s ability to interface with OpenStack and utilize Oracle SDN and virtual network services makes it a compelling solution for NFV.”

While ideal for NFV infrastructure, Netra Modular System can also be used in virtually any industry where customers want an integrated, virtualized platform with the benefits of a blade architecture. Netra Modular System supports Oracle Linux, Oracle Solaris and Oracle VM, as well as OpenStack and the Hardware Platform Interface (HPI), giving customers a choice of operating systems as well as the ability to create cloud-based services and provide nearly continuous service availability. For added flexibility, other Linux distributions and hypervisors can be used.

Oracle’s Netra systems will be on display next week at Mobile World Congress in Hall 3, Stand 3B20.

Code Coverage with NCover and UFT / QTP

Code Coverage with NCover and UFT / QTP

code_coverage_ncover_uft_qtp_blogAutomated testing is key to any productive QA team. We at NCover often work with teams using any number of test automation solutions to simplify their test processes.  One of the solutions that we encounter frequently is HP’s Unified Functional Testing (UFT), the updated version of another HP product, Quick Test Professional (QTP).  In fact, many teams still use the older QTP solution today and the steps that we’ll share in this post work well with either UFT or QTP.

Background On Working with UFT / QTP

While UFT/ QTP is helpful for increasing the efficiency of the testing process, these solutions can often interfere with coverage collection. The landscape of plugins and configurations possible with UFT/QTP can impose obstacles to the profiling methodology used by NCover. NCover performs in-memory profiling via the CLR profiler interface provide by .Net. The results are mixed when customers tackle this integration. Certain scenarios work well, but frequently the level of integration required by both tool sets is just difficult to orchestrate. The conflicts are various and fleeting at times, making this an integration with the potential of significant maintenance.

The good news is that the introduction of pre-instrumentation in NCover 5 makes these conflicts a thing of past.  With pre-instrumentation you can insert coverage instrumentation into the assemblies of an application on disk, rather than in memory, to avoid the CLR Profiler orchestration. Teams using this approach have achieved positive results and improved performance.

How Pre-Instrumentation Works

Pre-instrumenting an assembly is a simple process and can be done at the command line or as part of a scripts with the following command:

c:> ncover instrument myassembly.dll

or

c:> ncover instrument myassembly.dll myapp.exe myassembly2.dll

or

c:> ncover instrument *.dll *.exe

Wildcards are available for this command but it is important to be judicious about instrumentation. Avoid instrumenting third party libraries and system assemblies and focus on instrumenting only what is actionable. Selective pre-instrumentation becomes a form of pre-coverage filtering.

Pre-instrumentation is valid for both a single assembly in a solution or multiple assemblies, on a simultaneous basis, within a solution.  Through this approach, selective pre-instrumentation becomes an additional coverage filter allowing you to instrument only the assemblies for which coverage collection is needed. It is not necessary to pre-instrument an .exe file in order to collect coverage on a specific .dll file. Instrument only the .dll file and execute testing on the application as usual.

The execution of a pre-instrumented assembly collects coverage counters into a mapped file on disk while the application testing is underway. When the process exits, the binary coverage file remains on disk and can be imported via NCover Desktop, Code Central or Collector. These files carry the .ncprof extension and are raw coverage data. By making this file a raw binary counter file, the file remains valid for import even if your application crashes before you complete testing.

The coverage file follows a naming convention that includes the process name and a timestamp.  All pre-instrumented assemblies in the same process store their coverage counters in the same data file. This is similar to the same behavior of in-memory profiling, which places all of the coverage data in a single execution. Each .ncprof file represents a single execution of an pre-instrumented application.

Importing a coverage file is accomplished simply with the following command:

c:> ncover import --project=Project1 --file=MyAppName-[timestamp].ncprof

or

c:> ncover import --project=”My Coverage Project” --file=*.ncprof

MySQL Cluster 7.4 Now Generally AvailableNew release demonstrates up to 200 million reads per second and enhanced high availability for online transaction processing

Redwood Shores, Calif. – February 26, 2015 – Oracle today announced the general availability of MySQL Cluster 7.4. The new release delivers greater performance, high availability, and advanced management capabilities to power highly demanding telecommunications, web, mobile, and cloud services.

“With digital proliferation generating more data than ever before, businesses need online transaction processing to be as efficient and performant as possible,” said Tomas Ulin, vice president, MySQL engineering, Oracle. “With no single point of failure, MySQL Cluster 7.4 provides high performance to a wide range of application requirements for a user base that spans administrators of major telecommunications subscriber databases to providers of next-generation web, cloud, social, and mobile applications. The new release is a significant update that not only improves overall performance but eases the management efforts for database administrators and DevOps teams.”

MySQL Cluster is an open source, ACID-compliant transactional database designed to deliver real-time in-memory performance and 99.999 percent availability. It powers the subscriber databases of major communications service providers and is used in global fraud detection for financial transactions. The latest 7.4 release builds upon a series of development milestone releases that have enabled users to preview, test, and provide feedback during the development process. Enhancements include:

Greater in-memory performance and scalability: According to the SysBench benchmark, MySQL Cluster 7.4 can deliver a nearly 50 percent performance improvement over MySQL Cluster 7.3 for read-only workloads and nearly 40 percent improvement for read/write operations. Performance improvements are available through SQL or any of the native NoSQL APIs supported by MySQL Cluster, including Java, C++, HTTP, Memcached, and JavaScript/Node.js.

How Manual Testers Can Break into Automation without Programming Skills – Free Special Webinar

Ranorex.com: Latest News - Thu, 02/26/2015 - 16:06
We are delighted to inform you about a special webinar presented by Ranorex Professional Jim Trentadue entitled "How Manual Testers Can Break into Automation without Programming Skills".



Adoption of automating tests has not happened as quickly as organizations need. As more companies move toward implementing agile development as their software development lifecycle, more features are being realized and released more quickly. This leaves less time for full regression testing of the system, nonetheless this should still be done. Manual testers need to transform into test automation testers as well.

Many manual testers believe they have to learn a development language in addition to the functionality of a specific tool to be effective. Add to that the in-depth or SME knowledge one must have about the system under test along with the development and management support required and it may not seem at all clear where to start.
Jim will cover the following in this session:
  • The challenges faced by many organizations beginning the test automation journey
  • Early stages of adoption and adding to the value of work handled by a manual test team with little programming knowledge.
Find out how traditional manual testers can break into test automation without having in-depth scripting or programming skills. Learn how to make this jump as a manual tester and focus on the right areas first e.g. automation test structure, object recognition and results interpretation.

Jim Trentadue has more than fifteen years of experience as a coordinator/manager in the software testing field. As a speaker, Jim has presented at numerous industry conferences, chapter meetings, and at the University of South Florida's software testing class.

Register for the free webinar " How Manual Testers Can Break into Automation without Programming Skills " to be held on March 4, 2015, at 11:00 AM EST.
