Sydney Oracle Meetup
Practice, Innovation, Learning, Positive Paranoia are few of the key factors which make a DBA rockstar. Paul Vallee, who is employing hundreds of top-notch DBAs from across the planet to service world’s busiest and critical databases nailed the concept down with a thud.
This is a short blog post to let you know that there is a Oracle 11GR2 Clustering Webinar is coming this week. This session is going to be presented more in-depth at Oracle OpenWorld this year. Thank to all your votes at Oracle MIX. This webinar is kind of a bit of a pre-Oracle OpenWorld warm up :)
If it happens and you are in and around the Sydney area 1-2 weeks from now then you might be interested in taking part in these events.
The topic for this meetup is quite exciting – Oracle Exadata and everything about it. David Centellas, Senior Database Consultant from Oracle will do technical presentation on Exadata and, after the break, we will have a open forum discussion where two Oracle’s Enterprise Architects, Tim Rubin and Chris Jones, will answer our questions and share thir real-world experience.
We will start with an overview of the AQ technology in Oracle database – what it is and what it let you do. Then we will see how it’s used in Oracle E-Business Suite and how to manage it. Our speakers for the evening are your fellow SOM members – Jurijs Velikanovs and Warwick Sands. TBC.
This meetup will be focused on storage technologies for Oracle database. It looks like a short presentation on Oracle Automatic Storage Management is in order – quite a few people are missing the concepts of the Oracle flagman storage storage solution and it’s useful to understand the approach whether you use it now or not.
I think it was the smallest group so far which is not surprising considering that Monday has been the least popular day in our internal poll. We had a tad less than 20 people but very good size for the informal discussion of Oracle 11g adoption that took place at the second half of the meetup.
More than a month has passed since Sydney Oracle Meetup #2. We shot some video, but it took me a while to process it and publish a few interesting pieces, but I finally got it all. Have a look.
This meetup is focused on Oracle 11g adoption. We will have one presentation followed by (or combined with) the discussion of Oracle Database 11g release, who is using it currently – what are positive and negative moments. The presentation for this meeting is “Oracle 11g New Features Out of the Box” by Alex Gorbachev. Unlike many presentations on 11g new features, we will try to focus on a more subtle enhancements and less known new features.
SOM #4 is about Oracle backup and recovery. As usual, Pizza and drinks arrive at 5:30PM and we start the presentation at 6PM. We should be out by 8:30PM with optional post-event program. It’s Friday night in the end!
