UKOUG 2009 — Server Manageability Roundtable

Posted in: Technical Track

This is a call for topics for the upcoming Server Manageability Roundtable that I will be running at UKOUG Conference 2009 Technology and E-Business Suite. I should have probably blogged earlier about this but better later than never…

The Server Manageability Roundtable is on Monday, 30-Nov, at 16:25 in the foyer on the 5th level. It’s a bit late and I should have probably proposed to change the venue to the nearby pub but it’s too late now so let’s make it the last effort for the day and then…

The topic is quite broad so we will obviously need to focus on the most relevant areas for the attendees and this is the chance to state your interest so please comment away!

Here are the topics that I think might be particularly interested:

  • Oracle Enterprise Manager — experience, deployment issues, success stories, strengths and weaknesses.
  • Impact of virtualization and cloud computing — does it make it easier to manage our infrastructure?
  • Costs cutting by manageability improvements — myth or reality?
  • Managing highly available environment — human factors.

Make sure to leave a comment below whether you have something to say on the topics above or something completely new. Sharing your experience would be fantastic! Thanks in advance for all contributions and I promise I’ll write up the report on this round-table.

Hi Alex

Wow, that’s quite a wide-ranging scope you’ve given yourself for a round table. I’ll bet there will be a lot of hard-earned wisdom from the real world.

Unfortunately I’ll have to miss it as I am chairing a session which is on at the same time, but I’m looking forward to reading your write up.

If you have space, could you throw open-source software/tools into the mix? Simply put: how much is the free stuff helping?
