    Oracle on POWER® with Appliance Ease

    Tuesday, October 6, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Conservative estimates show that there are nearly 400,000 Oracle users, and more than 70,000 of them run their databases on IBM Power Systems. This IT power couple offers the premier hardware and software environment to manage any business, anywhere. 

    But there are serious complexities, high-dollar expenses and lengthy timelines to successfully provision, setup, deploy, and maintain an Oracle on POWER® system like this, and in addition, because Oracle and IBM have expanded their products to include Oracle Hardware and IBM Software, there is no available guidance or expertise on how to provision and deploy this unique system. 

    And finally, the need for faster solutions from shadow IT has caused the appliance marketplace to quickly expanded offering in-the-box software-on-server solutions. While these appliances do offer faster time to value, they lack in performance and often require significant investment and even on-site expertise. 

    Vendita Technology Group has partnered with Oracle, IBM and Avnet, and developed a solution that puts Oracle Database on POWER8™ without the need for lengthy provisioning times, onsite expertise, and complex long-term license maintenance. The Database Cloud Appliance is software, server, storage and networking, expertly provisioned for zero deployment times, easily scalable to the enterprise level. 

    Featured speakers: Chuck Gatecliff, Vice President of Sales and Operations, Vendita Technology Group; Bill Smith, Chief Architect, Vendita Technology Group; Doug Bloom, Oracle Marketing and Business Development Executive, IBM

    Rapid Migration of Big Data Oracle DB using IBM Enterprise Storage Tools

    Thursday, October 15, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    The province of Ontario Canada has one of the most advanced and complex Energy Smart Metering implementations in the world with over 4.77 million Smart Meters installed by 71 Local Distribution companies. The Meter Data Management Repository (MDM/R) processing millions of transactions per day is based on Oracle 11g R2 Databases of 30 TB managed by IBM on DS8800 Storage and POWER7 servers.

    The migration of  Big Data to DS8800 for Ontario Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) was designed and executed by IBM using IBM SVC Flash Copy and IBM Global Mirroring technologies along with Oracle Recovery Manager.

    The entire Production system on a 45 TB SAN storage was migrated from DS8870 to DS8800 in a short weekend outage providing IESO with the fastest upgrade and migration thus far, requiring minimal down time for Local Distribution companies.

    This Webninar will provide key technologies and strategies used for massive data migration including:
        - Design of solution with no down time during various cut-overs for testing and parallel runs.
        - Key technologies used to enable fast backup and copy of source to target.
        - Modular design which can be scaled without affecting existing Infrastructure.
        - Reuse of Migration components for operational support.

    Featured speakers: Sajid Rizvi, Senior IT Architect and Oracle Database Consultant, IBM Canada and Noel “Sab” Sabandal, Architecture and Quality Assurance Lead, Ontario’s Smart Metering Entity, IESO

    VMware SIG Webcast: Migrating Oracle from Unix to the Cloud

    Tuesday, October 20, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Enterprise applications have traditionally run Oracle on big iron Unix environments over the past two decades. With the ever increasing capabilities of modern multi core x86 processors, the differences in performance and stability between RISC-based Unix systems and x86-based Linux and Windows systems has greatly narrowed. We can leverage these advances to migrate traditional Unix Oracle databases to Cloud platforms (both public and private) and drastically reduce TCO. By moving to the Cloud and running on the latest hardware, Oracle gets improved performance and scalability. High Availability and Disaster Recovery for Oracle is also simplified. This webcast will discuss market trends, business processes and migration tools, like Connecteré, to move Oracle from Unix to the Cloud.
