Exadata Update - Greg Garretson, Raymond James Financial
It's been a while since we have covered Oracle's Engineered System. This month Raymond James' Greg Garretson will be joining us to bring us up to speed on the latest in the Exadata arena.
Exadata is truly the Ferrari of databases. It is an extremely powerful machine capable of incredible performance. However, its potential is often not being used by many Oracle developers with a commodity database background. The goal of this session is to provide Oracle developers working on Exadata systems with Exadata best practices they can take to work the next day and begin to immediately improve performance on their system. After all, a 500 HP Ferrari is meant to be driven on the Autostrada, not in a parking lot.
Greg is an Oracle Certified Development DBA with 16 years of experience. He is currently an Exadata specialist at Raymond James Financial in St. Petersburg, Florida. He has been extolling Exadata best practices for two years. Greg has prior experience using various Oracle Database technologies at American Express, HSN, Pinnacol Assurance, Colorado University, United Agri Products, and USAF.
