IOUG Webcasts - March 19 Update

Designing Your Oracle Infrastructure in Today’s Cloud ERA
Wednesday, March 19, 2014
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CST

Databases only perform as well as the systems they run on. Designing a system to power a true high performance database requires design choices that offer extreme performance, interoperability, availability and specific knowledge of tuning parameters that help streamline the operation of the database. The engineering resources and expertise required to design such a system are not generally available to all organizations. Integrated computing platforms (ICPs) are platforms in which servers, storage, network connectivity, and (in some cases) software are combined in a single solution. ICPs have proven to save businesses countless hours designing, configuring, and testing servers, networks, and storage subsystems.

The VCE Vblock™ System is a well-known and extensively deployed converged infrastructure platform that combines best-of-breed technologies from VMware, Cisco, and EMC into a powerful integrated computing platform. Attend this webcast to learn how the new Vblock™ Specialized Systems for High Performance Databases, based on an open, scalable infrastructure can provide a simple solution with very high performance for the most demanding transactional and response-time-sensitive databases required by today’s businesses.

Simplifying Database Performance Analysis using Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c to Monitor Database & Storage Together 
Wednesday, April 23, 2014 
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.  CST

Oracle Database Administrators have traditionally been challenged in analyzing performance across the infrastructure layers. It’s not uncommon to have meetings with all the infrastructure owners to determine the source of the performance bottleneck. This impacts the business as performance might remain an issue until the infrastructure owners examine their respective areas of ownership. 

Through this session: 

  • Attendees will learn about the solutions which provide the ability to inspect database and storage performance together in a holistic approach to performance remediation.
  • We will show performance scenarios related to tuning the Oracle database with different storage options showing how the DBA can pro-actively remediate issue(s). (Ex. How a DBA can determine if storage or the database or perhaps both are impacting application performance. )
  • Attendees will have an understanding of how to accelerate performance remediation.
