DaaS & FlexASM 12c - Charles Kim & Nitin Vengurlekar

The co-founders of Viscosity NA will join us this month to start our year off with a double-header, two presentations in one meeting. Long-time friend of SOUG and Oracle Ace Director, Charles Kim, will start us off with his spin on Database as a Service. This is not your typical DaaS speech we've all heard before from Oracle. Charles calls it "Zero to Complete DBaaS in 1 Hour". Learn the secrets of the trade to provisioning database-as-a-service. This detailed technical session will teach advanced techniques for enterprise RAC and non-RAC database deployments. Save days and even weeks of deploy time by attending this session. There is no reason why you should not be able to deploy a fully patched RAC environment from bare metal Linux and create a RAC database in less than one hour. Anyone deploying RAC or even non-RAC will learn the secret sauce and knowledge of how to properly deploy mission critical systems that is repeatable and consistent. Learn to deploy a fully patched ( with PSU 8 or 12.1 with PSU x) two node RAC in less than one hour. Learn how to automate database builds and to leverage golden image databases. We can't forget about rapid deployment of Oracle 12c Pluggable Databases. Learn how to deploy pluggable databases (PDB) and to migrate PDBs and significantly increase your database consolidation density. The details of adding nodes to an existing clusters and removing nodes from the cluster will also be disseminated.

Nitin will step in for the second session of the evening to discuss ASM. When Automatic Storage Management (ASM) was introduced in 10gR1, it was simply marketed as the volume manager for the Oracle database. With significant changes for 12c, ASM has now grown into a core component of not only the Oracle Clusterware stack, but also engineered systems such as Exadata and ODA. This session will cover some of key management and high availability features introduced in 12c ASM. Attendees will get a great glimpse of these advancements, the history behind the new features, and why these features are a necessary part of the future of ASM. Key topics/areas to be covered:
  • A. History of ASM
  • 1. 10g and 10gR2
  • 2. 11g and 11gR2
  • 3. 12c
  • B. 12c ASM -Manageability features
  • 1. Understand the existing problems
  • 2. What problems were solved
  • C. 12c ASM - High availability features
  • 1. Purpose
  • 2. Benefits
