I can continue talking on and on about 11g database. I love it so much. For 20+ years of Oracle experience I did not have so much excitement like now. I think only one reason why 11g implementation is not that fast, because of economy. People worry about their jobs not looking to bring some innovation to the table.
BTW 184.108.40.206 release was not that bad as other oracle releases. But after oracle released 220.127.116.11 version, I would not worry at all to upgrade production databases and enjoy all features in once. We upgraded 15% of our 24×7 production databases to 18.104.22.168 version.
Currently we are working on upgrading rest of our big production databases to oracle 11g version.
That being said, 10g offered HUGE benefits across a wide scale, although we’re still learning to make full use of it. Right now, it doesn’t seem like 11g is bringing quite as much to the table – Many new features are development (Real Applications Testing) or niche-oriented (Virtual Columns). Or perhaps we just haven’t been able to fully flesh out the utility of all the tools yet.
Of course, Oracle wants their flagship to be successful, it may take a little time. From my experience, the initial release of 11g has been exceedingly stable compared to the release of 10gR1.]]>
* 11g has fewer compelling reasons to upgrade than previous versions
* Those reason often require purchase of a new license.
* 9iR2 and 10gR2, which are likely to be the platforms to upgrade from are quite stable.
* 11g has had a number of bugs appear that make people want to let the product mature a bit.
People will move, but it will take time. Upgrades are a costly effort and nobody wants to upgrade to a product if they don’t have a real cost justification to doing so.]]>
