    Automatic Data Optimization and Oracle Intelligent Storage Protocol:  What Are They and Why Should You Care?

    Tuesday, April 15, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CST

    With powerful advancements in Oracle Database 12c come several areas of new functionality that streamline management, improve capacity utilization, and increase overall storage performance.   With Oracle Database 12c you can now track utilization, view data heat maps, and automate compression selection with policies which enable lifecycle data management across storage tiers.   You can even automate the selection of Hybrid Columnar Compression for Oracle Storage to achieve 10-50x compression ratios without user intervention.  You can also speed the configuration and tuning of Oracle Database 12c on Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances with Oracle Intelligent Storage Protocol.  These are just a few examples of how combining Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Storage enable an easier to manage, lower footprint and faster application environment that better addresses your users’ needs.  In this session you will learn about many of the storage-aware functions in Oracle Database 12c - where engineering hardware and software together turn your data center into a business advantage.   

    Join Oracle Senior Director of Product Manager, Kevin Jernigan, to hear about technologies such as Automatic Data Optimization, Hybrid Columnar Compression, Oracle Intelligent Storage Protocol and many of the features new to Oracle Database 12c. 

    Featured Speaker: Kevin Jernigan, Senior Director Product Management, Oracle Corporation

    Get More Value From Your Oracle Database Deployment With Next Generation Storage Architectures 

    Thursday, April 17, 2014, 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CST

    Rapid Oracle databases and application growth has crippled the ability of legacy RAID-based and scale-up storage architectures to keep pace without imposing significant operational headaches and unnecessary capital outlays.

    Specific database operations where these challenges are most acute include:

    • RMAN merge windows
    • Data Guard Standby lag
    • Query response time, especially heavily indexed VLDBs
    • Secondary processing on clone databases

    This session will review before and after impact of deploying a next generation storage architecture to support these different operations, while demonstrating the resulting operational and efficiency benefits to be realized by database administrators.

    IOUG Oracle EM SIG Techcast: Simplifying Database Performance Analysis using Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c to Monitor Database & Storage Together

    Wednesday, Apr 23, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CST

    Oracle Database Administrators have traditionally been challenged in analyzing performance across the infrastructure layers. It’s not uncommon to have meetings with all the infrastructure owners to determine the source of the performance bottleneck. This impacts the business as performance might remain an issue until the infrastructure owners examine their respective areas of ownership.

    Through this session:

    • Attendees will learn about the solutions which provide the ability to inspect database and storage performance together in a holistic approach to performance remediation.
    • We will show performance scenarios related to tuning the Oracle database with different storage options showing how the DBA can pro-actively remediate issue(s). (Ex. How a DBA can determine if storage or the database or perhaps both are impacting application performance. )
    • Attendees will have an understanding of how to accelerate performance remediation.

    Featured Speaker: Sam Lucido, Oracle Technical Marketing Manager, EMC

    Cloud Computing SIG Techcast: Database as a Service (DBaaS): How to Create a Database Cloud Service Catalog 

     Tuesday, May 6, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CST

    The evolution from traditional IT silos to a service-oriented cloud environment involves several steps.  The first step is to identify the essential services that IT will provide.  Then, rationalize the variety of vendor and technology components supporting the current estate to a standardized and manageable set.  By reducing complexity and increasing standardization, IT is able to more efficiently consolidate workloads, automate more processes and deliver services faster, all with lower risk and costs.  The Service Catalog is the essential medium for presenting standard service offerings to consumers, and documenting how they are delivered and managed.

    At the conclusion of this webinar you will understand:

    • the benefits of presenting and documenting IT services in a service catalog;
    • the proper structure of the components of a service catalog;
    • how to create an effective business catalog to deliver DBaaS to consumers;
    • how to map business-level objectives to a technical catalog.

    In this webcast, the concepts will be illustrated with customer use case examples. A catalog of standardized Oracle Database service offerings will also be presented.  Enterprises may adopt or adapt this catalog to deliver Oracle Database services in a private cloud.

    Featured Speakers: Michael Timpanaro-Perrotta and Burt Clouse of Oracle Corporation
