Speaking at BGOUG and UKOUG

October 17th, 2016 No comments

It’s my pleasure to be speaking at BGOUG and UKOUG again this year.

The coming Wednesday 19th Oct, I’ll be speaking at the UKOUG Systems SIG event here in London (agenda). I’ll talk about Exadata implementations I did last year and issues I encountered. Also, things you need to keep in mind when you plan to extend the system, attach it to ZFS Storage Appliance or Exalytics.

Next is all time my favorite user group conference BGOUG. It’s held in Pravetz, Bulgaria between 11-13 November. With an excellent line of speakers is one not to miss (agenda). I’ll be speaking on Saturday at 10:00 about Protecting single instance databases with Oracle Clusterware 12c. In case you don’t have RAC, RAC One Node or 3rd party cluster licenses but you still need high availability for your database. I’ll go through the clusters basics, the difference between single instance, RAC and RAC One Node and then more technical details around the implementation of a single instance failover cluster.

Finally, it’s the UKOUG Tech 16 with its massive 14 streams of sessions between 5-7 December and speakers from around the world (agenda). I’ll be speaking on Tuesday 11:35 about Exadata extension use cases. I’ll talk about the Exadata extension I did and what to keep in mind if you plan one. In particular extension of a quarter rack to an eighth rack, expansion of Exadata with more compute nodes or storage cell and extension of X3-8 two-rack configuration with another X4-8 rack.

I’d like to thank my company (Red Stack) for the support and BGOUG and UKOUG committees for accepting my sessions.

See you there!

My session is about Oracle GoldenGate – it will cover the basics, components, usage scenarios, installation and configuration, trail files and GG records and many more.

Presentation about Oracle on HP-UX and Linux

January 16th, 2010 No comments

At the last BGOUG I was talking about some of the differences between HP-UX and Linux although they cannot be compared because they run on different platforms. I tried to figure out how Linux penetrate the Enterprise OS market in the last years, what is still missing and what features I would like to see in Linux that HP-UX has for a long time. I also discussed topics about memory, best practices in multipathing and networking, storage options, asmlib tips and tricks and some words about backup and recovery.

The presentation can be found here
