Hotsos Symposium 2010 — Battle Against Any Guess Is Won

What’s unusual about this session is that it’s not some technical stuff that I usually do but a more conceptual and motivational talk. Could I pull it off? Well, I think it went fairly well in general even though I did identify few rough places and my lack of English language mastering. Might need to work a little bit more on the flow of the presentation. We had quite a few good laughs. Later, people in the next hall were asking about it and Dan was making the jokes on the stage so it must have been loud. Anyway, I think nobody fell asleep and I managed to get people thinking about the topic. I received many “thank you” notes yesterday and compliments on a good session so by the end of the day I was more and more pleased. Thanks everyone for attending and especially big thanks to those of you who brought to my attention examples from their own battles. If you have more to discuss — contact me by email (my last name) {at} pythian.com.

RAC+ASM 3 years in production. Stories to share (slides from RMOUG10)

Here are the slides from my presentation at RMOUG 2010. I am not sure how much sense all this will make without my comments. We may do it in a webinar if there is sufficient interest. Regardless I will probably be doing it again at some point in the future.

Oracle Automatic Storage Management has proven to be one of the most widely adopted new features in Oracle Database 10g and it has been dramatically improved in the later 11g releases. This presentation will explain what changes are solved by ASM, how these challenges are solved, what barriers there are to ASM adoptions, and how 11g Release 2 addresses these barriers.

Hotsos Symposium 2010 — Dallas, I’m Coming!

What should you expect coming to the Hotsos Symposium 2010? It’s 3 days packed with sessions on all aspects of Oracle performance optimization whether it’s design, troubleshooting, development, methodologies and processes. Legendary Tom Kyte — who else can you expect for the keynote?! If you take an optional training day with Tanel Poder then you are likely to learn at least as much about troubleshooting Oracle database performance as you do during the conference and probably even more. Every presentation by Tanel has been an eye opener for me. If you’ve seen his material, you’d know what I’m talking about. Now, imagine that it’s not a one-hour session but the whole day! It will fry your brains so this day is for the strongest! :)

Pythian Goes to RMOUG Training Days 2010, Denver

I’m so much looking forward to the next conference in my schedule — RMOUG Training Days 2010. It would be only my second time I’m presenting at the RMOUG but it was enough to go there once to understand that it’s one of the top rated Oracle User Group conferences in the world. Some of the great speakers are presenting and registration fees are very low compare to other events of comparable quality. If your conference budget is low this year — that’s the conference you don’t want to miss!
