AUSOUG – Melbourne Day 2

The first session I attended this morning was “Creating a data grid using Oracle Coherence. It was “hands-on”, so we were supposed to bring our laptops to install software and he was going to do demos. NO ONE in the room brought their laptop. In the afternoon I went to Ramesh Naidu’s presentation on Cluster-wide monitoring for RAC. It covered all the components in a RAC Cluster that need monitoring and the importance of doing so, including Cluster services, ASM, network and database.

AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne is Over

The second, and the last, day of AUSOUG 2007 in Melbourne is over. I had a quick chance to peak into Steve Lemme’s presentation on CA approach for solving an IT management dilemma. Instead of keynote and the following presentation, I paid a visit to exhibitors and spoke to practically every exhibitor. It turned out that some of them knew or heard about Pythian which was quite pleasing to hear.

Melbourne and AUSOUG

Yesterday morning my co-worker, Alex Gorbachev, arrived from Sydney. We went together to sight-see around the city. We stopped off and got a map of Melbourne and made our way to Bourke Street for lunch. Next we headed to the large cathedral. It was HUGE and glorious and open to the public. Then we got on the tram system and headed to the botanical gardens. We went to China town for dinner last night, where Alex had real ( and real hot ) chinese food. A combination pot of some sort.
