EMC Breakout Sessions at OOW
A traditional challenge for Oracle Database administrators has been analyzing performance across infrastructure layers. Meetings with all the infrastructure owners to determine the source of a performance bottleneck are important since performance can remain an issue until the infrastructure owners examine their respective areas of ownership. This session illustrates solutions that enable the inspection of database and storage performance together in a holistic approach to performance remediation. The presentation shows performance scenarios related to tuning Oracle Database with different storage options and demonstrates how the DBA can proactively remediate issues.
As Oracle Database environments scale into the multi-terabyte range, it is not uncommon for IT organizations to routinely exceed their backup windows. EMC Data Domain storage systems integrate seamlessly with Oracle Recovery Manager (Oracle RMAN), reducing backup cost and accelerating recovery. This session details how to gain faster, more efficient backup and recovery of your Oracle Databases, including new integration with Oracle 12c and Exadata environments. In addition, learn why Data Domain Boost for Oracle RMAN is the only solution that gives DBAs complete control of backup and disaster recovery. Finally, discover how Data Domain systems support RMAN multiplexing to optimize performance while maximizing deduplication ratios.
Global enterprises demand always-on application data high availability to remain competitive. To meet these objectives, Oracle customers seek to eliminate any single points of failure, while providing near-zero downtime. However, when applications are shared across several databases and data centers, it can be difficult to ensure Oracle data availability. Attend this session to discover how to rapidly recover your Oracle Databases to any point in time and provide active-active data availability within and across data centers, leveraging transformative integration between EMC and Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC). The session includes best practices, customer examples, and live Q&A with Oracle subject matter experts.
Nearly all Oracle customers today are seeking ways to increase the performance of their databases deployed in online transaction processing (OLTP) or data warehouse environments. With advancements in flash technology, Oracle DBAs have the choice to leverage flash technology in the server or the storage array. This session provides an in-depth technical discussion on the deployment of flash in the server and the storage array for mission-critical Oracle application and database environments. Learn the benefits of using flash at different layers of the infrastructure stack and how, when combined with automated storage tiering software from EMC, DBAs can optimize their Oracle environments for performance and efficiency.
Nearly every IT organization today is driving toward better standardization in how they deploy and manage their Oracle Databases and the IT infrastructure that supports them. A key first step is to determine the tradeoffs of standardization based on your current Oracle software and IT environment. Attend this session to hear a panel of Oracle on EMC customers across a range of industries discussing design and operational considerations for standardizing Oracle IT infrastructure. Also hear real-world best practices on how the right approach to standardization can unite DBAs and IT infrastructure teams for higher productivity, while allowing up to 5X faster Oracle deployments at 3X lower TCO over a three-year period.
DBAs are constantly asked to provide copies of Oracle production data for multiple purposes, such as test and development or setup of maintenance and QA environments, which can be costly and time consuming. This session discusses new integration and functionality between EMC and Oracle that enables DBAs to quickly provision instances of Oracle Pluggable Databases in seconds using Oracle dNFS CloneDB and EMC storage. It also shares documented best practices for storage layouts that help facilitate the move toward Database as a Service (DBaaS).
