Oracle Database Machine on a Budget: Standard Edition (SE)?

One of the customers (actually a prospect) here in Australia asked me about minimal Oracle licensing on a quarter rack database machine. This prompted a thought of using Oracle Standard Edition instead of full blown Enterprise Edition with bunch of options.

Unveiling the OLTP Oracle Database Machine & Exadata v2

Let’s go into the nitty-gritty… ODBM (Oracle Database Machine) v2 is twice as fast as version 1 when it comes to data warehousing.

Alex Gorbachev at ACTOUG Developer and DBA Seminar Day

I’ll be in Canberra next week presenting at the ACT Oracle User Group Developer and DBA Seminar Day on Thursday, 23 July 2009. If you are in Australian capital city, I’d be very much looking forward to see you there! The topic I will be presenting is 11g New Features Out of the Box. I presented it few times already but originally, it’s based on Christo Kutrovsky’s presentation from Oracle Open World 2007. Unlike many presentations on 11g new features, this session will be focused on the enhancements that often go unnoticed and not marketed widely but boost DBA productivity and are available out of the box without much implementations efforts.
