Effective Indexes: How to leverage Database Indexes for Optimal Performance
Tuesday, March 18, 2014, 12:00 p.m.- 1:00 p.m. CST
Indexes are intended to provide faster access to rows when querying data than would a full scan of the entire table. In a perfect world, we'd have indexes defined to precisely match our query predicates. But, we don't live in a perfect world and don't typically have an option to create indexes to match the needs of thousands of different queries perfectly. What we need to be able to do is determine how to create a limited number of highly effective indexes per table that provide acceptable performance coverage for a wide range of queries.
Join Karen Morton, Oracle ACE, and Embarcadero’s Scott Walz as they discuss strategies and techniques to create highly effective indexes.
Register for the webinar to learn:
• How indexes are structured and how they function
• How multiple indexes per table increase resource overhead
• How to quickly identify index inefficiencies
• Strategies for implementing the best mix of indexes in your environment

Designing Your Oracle Infrastructure in Today’s Cloud Era
Wednesday, March 19, 2014, 12:00 p.m.- 1:00 p.m. CST
Databases only perform as well as the systems they run on. Designing a system to power a true high performance database requires design choices that offer extreme performance, interoperability, availability and specific knowledge of tuning parameters that help streamline the operation of the database. The engineering resources and expertise required to design such a system are not generally available to all organizations. Integrated computing platforms (ICPs) are platforms in which servers, storage, network connectivity, and (in some cases) software are combined in a single solution. ICPs have proven to save businesses countless hours designing, configuring, and testing servers, networks, and storage subsystems.
The VCE Vblock™ System is a well-known and extensively deployed converged infrastructure platform that combines best-of-breed technologies from VMware, Cisco, and EMC into a powerful integrated computing platform. Attend this webcast to learn how the new Vblock™ Specialized Systems for High Performance Databases, based on an open, scalable infrastructure can provide a simple solution with very high performance for the most demanding transactional and response-time-sensitive databases required by today’s businesses.

Featured Speakers: Mike Leone, Lab Engineer, Enterprise Strategy Group, John Lockyer, chief Technology Officer, Americas, and OCTO Global Lead of Technology Consultants, VCE, & Sam Lucido, Oracle Global Technical Marketing
