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. 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 and with an excellent line of speakers is one not to miss. 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. 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!
