RAC Attack! 12c

This technical workshop and networking event (never forget it’s a project created several years ago thanks to an intuition of Jeremy Schneider), confirms to be one of the best, long-living projects in the Oracle Community. It certainly boosted my Community involvement up to becoming an Oracle ACE. This year I’m the coordinator of the organization of the workshop, it’s a double satisfaction and it will certainly be a lot of fun again. Did I said that it’s already full booked? I’ve already blogged about it (and about what the lucky participants will get) here.

 

Oracle RAC, Data Guard, and Pluggable Databases: When MAA Meets Oracle Multitenant 

One of my favorite presentations, I’ve presented it already at OOW14 and UKOUG Tech14, but it’s still a very new topic for most people, even the most experienced DBAs. You’ll learn how Multitenant, RAC and Data Guard work together. Expect colorful architecture schemas and a live demo!  You can read more about it in this post.

 

Panel: Nothing to BLOG About – Think Again

My friend Michael Abbey (Pythian) invited me to participate in his panel about blogging. It’s my first time as panelist, so I’m very excited!

 

IOUG RAC SIG Meeting

Missing this great networking event is not an option! I’m organizing this session as RAC SIG board member (Thanks to the IOUG for this opportunity!). We’ll focus on Real Application Clusters role in the private cloud and infrastructure optimization. We’ll have many special guests, including Oracle RAC PM Markus Michalewicz, Oracle QoS PM Mark Scardina and Oracle ASM PM James Williams.

Can you ever miss it???

 

A good Trivadis representative!!

This year I’m not going to Las Vegas alone. My Trivadis colleague Markus Flechtner , one of the most expert RAC technologists I have the chance to know, will also come and present a session about RAC diagnostics:
