: Orbitz LLC, the airline-owned travel Web site, suffered an outage yesterday related to an Oracle database on which Orbitz operates the site, according to a spokeswoman for the Chicago-based company.
Who knows what happened with Orbitz, but I always thought it was an unwise move on Oracle's part to tout their database as “unbreakable.” Bugs happen, things break.
While I'm on Oracle, I thought I would mention that their Collaboration Suite
looks compelling at $60 a user for all the features they claim to offer. Of course, you're going to have to lay down some serious cash for the “unbreakable” part of the equation — 9i Database and App Server software.
