    IOUG Storage SIG Webcast: Virtualization Got You Down? Avoid the Performance and Management Pitfalls of Mismatched Storage

    Tuesday, September 16, 2014 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Analyst research suggests that 84 percent of servers will be virtualized in the next 18 months. As high-density, virtualized environments continue to grow, storage can often become a bottleneck. The penalty in cost, performance and management overhead grows dramatically when storage hardware is poorly matched to meet the demands of a highly virtualized environment. Join Oracle product experts as they explore new and unique ways to consolidate storage while ensuring high performance and rapid and seamless performance issue resolution in virtualized environments.

    Attendees will learn how to:
    • Accelerate VM deployment by easily booting tens of thousands of VMs in mere minutes, from a single, low-cost storage system
    • Speed VM performance issue troubleshooting and resolution with VM-level storage analytics proven to be 73% faster than the competition
    • Extend virtualization to the cloud with OpenStack and other cloud API support mechanisms
    • Save money by consolidating more VMs onto fewer, faster, and economical storage systems 

    If you want to avoid the pitfalls of mismatched storage and support thousands of VM hosts—plus gain the benefits of co-engineering that only exist with Oracle—you should definitely attend this session.

    Marrying the Private Database Cloud and DBaaS

    Tuesday, September 23, 2014 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. CDT

    What is the Oracle Database Cloud buzz about?  Come listen to the evangelist who pioneered the Database Cloud messaging and hear for yourself.

    Learn the essentials to build your own private database cloud.  Once you build your private database cloud, you will want to learn how to deliver DBaaS.  The second half of the presentation will focus on explaining how DBaaS fits into the Oracle Database Cloud, the components that is needed to deploy DBaaS, and why you should consider DBaaS in your organization.

    This presentation will lead into the Cloud Computing SIG meet-up at Oracle OpenWorld Sunday.

    We welcome everyone to come and participate in the journey to the Cloud.

    Featured Speakers and Oracle ACE Directors: Charles Kim and NItin Vengurlekar, Viscosity North America

    How to Fire Up Your Oracle Database with Flash Storage At the Price of Spinning Disk

    Tuesday, October 7, 2014 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    By addressing the database performance issues that are commonly caused by poorly performing storage, flash storage is poised to rapidly replace traditional hard drives in the enterprise data center for applications such as Oracle databases. In this presentation we will use examples to demonstrate how radically the database performance can be improved when using a Kaminario K2 All-Flash Array versus a traditional HDD-based or a hybrid storage array. We will review the effects of flash on running mixed workloads that require consistently low latencies, high IOPS and high throughput.  

    Join us to learn how different Kaminario’s K2 is from other All-Flash arrays on the market based on its:
    - Highly efficient, scalable architecture which allows to deploy flash at $2/GB of usable storage
    - 3D performance consistency that delivers high I/O and throughput with low latencies
    - Enterprise resiliency and reliability with no single point of failure
    - Streamlined, intelligent management

    Featured Speakers: Dustin Harris and Julita Kussmaul, Kaminairo

    Big Data Analytics for Internet of Things (IoT)

    Thursday, October 9, 2014 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    The general topic of this presentation is the Industry Landscape of the Internet of Things. In his presentation, the speaker will compare and contrast the Consumer Internet with the Commercial and Industrial Internet as well as introduce the paradigm shift as computing technologies are geared towards the Industrial Internet. 

    From this webinar, attendees will be able to:
    1. Explain how IoT generates Big Data
    2. Utilize the machine or sensor data to obtain objectives 
    3. Apply Big Data Analytics to gain business insights

    Flow of presentation:
    a) De-Mystifying IoT
    b) Big Data from IoT
    c) Applying Analytics for Business Insights

    In Search of Plan Stability (Part 2) 

    Wednesday, November 12, 2014 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Part 1 of this webinar set discussed the performance challenges caused by plan instability. Using SQL profiles and SQL patches are mechanisms that can provide targeted relief to individual SQL statements that have plan regressions. However, Oracle provides SQL Plan Management features that are intended to prevent plan regressions from creating challenges in the first place.

    In this webinar, attendees will learn:
    • how SQL Plan Management (SPM) works
    • how SQL Plan Baselines are created
    • how SQL Plan Baselines are evolved/enabled for use
    limitations of SPM

    Featured speaker: Karen Morton, Enkitec
