Michael Abbey’s user group forum presentation from OOW 12 … a link to my presentation from Oracle Open World 2012 … Oracle rman: Don’t Forget the Basics. Questions/comments/suggestions? Please contact me …
The consistent message, both from Oracle and from independent data architects has been: “Hadoop will not replace Oracle. Each system has its strengths and they can be used side by side to offer wider range of data storing and processing possibilities”.
It seems that most professionals understood and agreed with this message, because this year the question I am hearing most is “Which data should we store in Hadoop and which in Oracle”.
I can’t claim to have the definitive answer, but I can offer some pointers and start the discussion.
With mesmerizing Oracle Asia Pacific reception and ACE reception in bag from day one, day two not only brought knowledge-packed sessions but also unstoppable praises for the team Pythian from customers, bloggers, speakers, Oracle professionals and general audience.
Some people call it day 1 but the user group forum on Sunday is so packed with information it is really day 1. The exhibit hall opened naturally on Monday and the chachka-hunters were out in force. I did my customary vendor hall walkabout with Greg for a bit and it was pretty much same-old same-old. I did not recognize all the booths but the ever-popular perennial vendors were everywhere to be seen. The evening was occupied by the Friends of Pythian event and it was well attended by colleagues, partners, and client representative.
Tuesday morning at OOW is always occupied by this forum, an opportunity for authors and other persons to receive heads up on what’s coming down the pipe from Oracle. The following notes are musings from yours truly as I attended the forum today.
Yesterday night, under the backdrop of the magnificent Golden Gate bridge of San Fransisco, Oracle lived up to its name and honored the Oracle ACEs and ACE Directors from all across the world. Lillian and her team did a wonderful job of bringing together almost all the great names in the Oracle World, and it was really nice for me to put so many names to the faces.
I hope that by now you’ve all heard about the fun that is pluggable databases. Oracle 12c will allow you to have multiple databases within the same instance. It is not often that Oracle makes a major architecture change that opens new possibilities. As a consultant it is certainly exciting, I can now imagine new and better-than-ever solutions for my customers.
