Weekend Learning: OBIEE 11g and DBFS

MOS note 1621469.1 captured my attention, as we have just implemented OBIEE again but on the 11g platform this time but I haven't had a lot of exposure to that or DBFS.  What is DBFS?  The note has a good explanation, I'll need to find more documentation about the subject later, but it boils down to a File System for Oracle Databases that can be used instead of NFS or ZFS based on SecureFile LOBs with access controlled with PL/SQL procedure calls.

The point of the article was if DBFS can be used for OBIEE 11g, and I'll steal a bit of thunder for once and tell you no it can't be used.  What I won't tell you, is WHY that is the case, and if you are curious you can visit the MOS note!

  1. Curious to know more as we were thinking of using DBFS as a report repository. Came across your blog via Google. Can you point out where I can find out more (MOS note). Not sure what an MOS note is or where it can be found. Thanks.
