44 seconds. Depending on your perspective, 44 seconds can feel like an eternity or seem to speed by in an instant. For example:
- In 2016, 44 seconds was all Texas A&M needed to put together the biggest last-minute comeback in NCAA Division I history. To Northern Iowa, those last 44 seconds were an eternity.
- When U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was asked about then Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore, those 44 seconds lasted a loooong time…
- 44 seconds is all Leah Shutkever took to set the Guinness World Record for a woman eating a burrito.
- At the risk of sounding morose, according to the Independent, one person dies every 44 seconds during the second week of January in the UK.
- Also from the UK, and much more exciting, Jaguar’s XJR575 can hit 186 MPH in just 44 seconds.
Let’s get a little nerdy now. Perhaps not quite as exciting as taking a Jaguar to its limits, but still of keen interest to Oracle DBAs, is that NetApp enables you to provision a complete Oracle database in just 44 seconds. Considering that many companies take weeks to provision needed capacity for additional databases, 44 seconds is a relative blink of an eye.
Shaving weeks or even months off of time to production can mean an effective competitive advantage.
