Gear up for #AIOUG OTN Yathra’ 2016


AIOUG is back again with OTN Yathra’ 2016. It is a series of technology evangelist events organized by All India Oracle Users Group in six cities touring across the length and breadth of the country. It was my extreme pleasure to be the part of it in 2015 and I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be speaking this year too. This year it starts on April 23rd and runs until May 01st, 2016. Check out the event schedule and objectives here

I will be speaking in Bangalore (Apr 24th), Hyderabad (Apr 26th), and Mumbai (Apr 30th). My session abstracts are as below –

1. Backup your databases to the cloud using Oracle Database Backup Service

Oracle Database Backup Service is a secure, scalable, reliable, and on-demand Oracle public cloud storage solution for storing Oracle Database backups. Businesses can access additional storage capacity in minutes with zero hardware investment. The Oracle Database Backup Service can be accessed from anywhere, at anytime, and from any Oracle database server connected to the Internet.

This session will touch upon several aspects of backup cloud service like subscription process, scalability, access, and security. The attendees will learn about the new backup-as-a-service offering that enables customers to store their backups securely in the Oracle cloud via a downloadable backup module that transparently handles the backup and restore operations.
2. Use Oracle BigData SQL to query for All Your Data

Oracle Big Data SQL provides unified query across Oracle database, Hadoop, and NoSQL datastores. It uses query franchising technique to maximize the performance and avoid the pitfalls of language-level federation using query franchising. Oracle BigData SQL uses Hadoop Smart Scan to quantify the performance and minimize data movement. This session will discuss the limitations of language level federation, capabilities of BigData SQL and the latest updates of a cutting-edge technology.

Please register for this event and confirm your availability in the event. I’ll see you there.
