Oracle Spotlights ZFS Storage Appliance Adoption for Oracle Engineered Systems Backup, Unveils ZS3 Series for Backup

Overcoming Obstacles to Virtualize the Database Tier
Tuesday, May 27
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. CT

In many organizations the database tier of critical business applications remains bound to bare metal servers while the app and web tiers enjoy the freedom and benefits associated with server virtualization. In this presentation Kaminario will challenge this conventional wisdom by demonstrating precisely why databases can (and should be) virtualized right now! We’ll discuss reliability, support and performance concerns, and close with a few examples of Kaminario customers that have successfully leveraged server virtualization for their entire application stack, including the database tier, by attaching all of it to a modern, all flash storage sub-system.

Speaker: Bill Bodei is a senior director with Kaminario, and is a frequent speaker on topics of infrastructure, cloud computing and virtualization.
