Happy Birthday OFA

Cary Millsap from Method-R just reminded us that the OFA standard is now 14 years old.

Check out his original post here:

The Good Thing about Optimal Flexible Architecture was that it created a standardized way to install and maintain the Oracle (database) software stack.

And in writing down OFA Cary used his meticulous, thorough approach. Every aspect of OFA was derived from a real "Requirement". And he paid special attention to Robustness and Maintainability. The configuration of Oracle software, and the life of the DBA became a lot simpler.

Many DBAs owe Cary for writing up OFA!
