Gear up for #AIOUG OTN Yathra’ 2016

Guys,

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 http://www.otnyathra.com/

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.

Lets catch up at OTNYathra 2015

All,

Its time to be at AIOUG stage once again and the event would be the OTNYathra 2015. The event has been a great success in the past and has been able to generate/receive wide recognition and appreciation. OTNYathra focuses to evangelize the Oracle technologies to a broader and passionate audience. OTNYathra is a grand tour which is conducted in 7 cities across India in the span of two weeks. Out of these seven, you can find me in three of them – Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai. If you are an Oracle professional and passionate about learning, we must see each other there. I believe its a great chance to share and learn and at the same time, meet and make friends in the community.

My sessions at the event venues –

1. Oracle 12c Multitenant – Changes in Database Release 12.1.0.2
Oracle 12c introduces Multitenant architecture which is designed for cloud infrastructure and enables the customers to easily consolidate multiple databases. The new architecture focuses on easy adoption and provides enhanced manageability. Oracle Multitenant delivers the benefits of “Manage many as One” while retaining the security, isolation and resource management at individual database level. Not only it complements all database options, but also provides quick provisioning of databases. With Oracle Database 12.1.0.2, Oracle has delivered multiple enhancements to the Multitenant option. Although, the Database In-Memory option is the most talked about feature of the release, but Multitenant option includes multiple additions to the pluggable database cloning, enables cross PDB querying, controls PDB in a data guard configuration, and many more features. These features allows the granular management of pluggable databases in a Multitenant environment. The Multitenant option, being compatible with Database In-Memory option, further raises the value bar in a consolidated environment. The session will discuss the motivations behind the enhancements to the Multitenant architecture and their applications in the real world.

2. Oracle Database 12c In-Memory option
The Oracle Database 12.1.0.2 introduces the Database In-Memory (DBIM) option which transparently accelerates analytic queries by orders of magnitude, enabling real-time business decisions. Using Database In-Memory, businesses can instantaneously run analytics and reports that previously took hours or days. Businesses benefit from better decisions made in real-time, resulting in lower costs, improved productivity, and increased competitiveness. Oracle’s In-Memory columnar technology is a pure in-memory format.   The in-memory columnar format is not persisted on storage. With the introduction of Oracle Database In-Memory option, a single database can now efficiently support mixed workloads by delivering optimal performance for transactions while simultaneously supporting real-time analytics and reporting workloads. This is possible due to this “dual-format” architecture that enables data to be maintained in both, i.e. the existing Oracle row format (buffer cache) for OLTP operations, and a new purely in-memory column format optimized for analytical processing. Embedding the in-memory capabilities into the existing Oracle Database software ensures that it is fully compatible with all existing database features, and requires no changes in the application layer.

See you there!!

AIOUG Sangam 11

 Hi Guyzzz

Just back from AIOUG Sangam11. Wonderful effort, event, sessions and most important grrat stage to share with some great names. Arup Nanda, Murali Vallath, Kuassi Mensah and many more. Kudos to the arrangement and and event management too.

The Day 1 (9th Dec) started off with registration. Was glad to see our bags and great material. Saw Murali at the doorstep and the day started off.

Murali addressed the session and thanked the event management team and introduced Arup to kick off the session. Arup Nanda ‘The LONGTIME DBA’ was the Show Stopper of the whole event. And he should be !!

Rich Niemiec started off with a session on Rolta. He showed us some pics of Oracle Corp…was amazed to be the part of it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arup started off with a session on Profiler in PL/SQL. Great sessions, great views and great information. Kuassi Mensah delivered a nice session on Oracle Net security. Murali too gave a presentation on RAC subject, but couldn’t catch up match as I have no background. Hemant came up with the day to day challenges of a DBA, their role and expectations. Fabulous !!

Day 2 (10th Dec) again saw a long session from Arup until Lunch. Superb stamina and grasp !! Got to know some new concepts on Cache fusion, DBA best practices, and introduced the logic behind Exdata. I could see the roadmap of DBA to DMA (Database Machine Administrator). Again a good one!!

Meanwhile I got introduced to Arup Nanda with a handshake and told him about myself. Told him about my online works and he asked me to get in touch for SELECT journal too. Nice chat time !!

Later I attended session by Hemant on Partitioning. Though it was an elementary one but enough to fill up 1 hour session. The next session by Prabhakar Gongloor was another masterpiece where he showed some screendumps of Oracle 12C. I believe we would be only of those few ones who could see it within 2 months of the version release. I could see him hiding something by saying its ‘Special Technique’ through which EM can connect to DB even if it is down (as far as I could understand).

As I referred one of my colleague for the seminar, I received a coupon worth INR500, redeemable on the same day against the books at the counter. I got one copy of Oracle XML DB.

The conference ended with photo sessions. I too got few with Arup, Bryn, Rich and Mensah. Soon I would publish on my blog. Received a Tshirt from OTN too.

Next year, it would be in August, 2012…I will be happy to volunteer the event and would surely like to see myself at the stage right there 🙂

Once again, Thanks Oracle, Thanks AIOUG !!

By for now

Saurabh
