- Keynote Presentation: What to Expect from Oracle Database 12c
10:00am - 11:00am Central Time
Databases are fundamentally changing due to new technologies and new requirements? This has never been more evident than with Oracle Database 12c, which has been the most rapidly adopted release in over a decade. This session provides a technical introduction to what's new in Oracle Database 12c and Oracle’s engineered systems. Maria will describe which industry transformation inspired each enhancement and explain when and how you can embrace each enhancement while preserving your existing performance.
Featured Speaker: Maria Colgan, Master Product Manager, Oracle Corporation
- Oracle 12cR2 Database In-Memory: Adventures with SwingBench TPC-DS
11:00am - 12:00pm Central Time
Originally introduced in Release 126.96.36.199, Database In-Memory (DBIM) offers the ability for analytic queries to sift through billions of rows at incredible speed because data is now retained in columnar format in the In-Memory Column Store (IMCS). Oracle Database 12cR2 dramatically expands the capabilities of DBIM, making it even simpler to implement, monitor, and manage while extending its reach to more complex execution plans, expanding its utility to Active Data Guard (ADG) instances, and enabling capture of frequently-evaluated expressions in the Expression Statistics Store (ESS).
Featured Speaker: Jim Czuprynski, President, Zero Defect Computing
- Oracle 12c R2 Multitenant Key Feature Sets for Beginner to Advanced
12:00pm - 1:00pm Central Time
Oracle multitenant is a key feature when we are consolidating databases, offering a lot of benefits over pre -12c consolidation options. In this session Oracle ACE Anuj Mohan will walk you through Oracle multitenant option including: CDB/PDB Introduction, PDB - Explanation of Value (EOV). I will briefly discuss migration options to 12c from previous versions then delve into the some of the 12c R2 multitenant features like PDB Hot clone, Refreshable PDBs, PDB Relocate, Lockdown profiles, Application containers, SGA/PGA for PDBs, 4096 PDB, and Memory I/O Resource prioritization
Featured Speaker: Anuj Mohan, Technical Account Manager, Data Intensity
- Oracle 12c R2 MAA: RAC/ASM/ACFS and Data Guard
1:00pm - 2:00pm Central Time
Oracle RAC, ASM including ACFS, and Data Guard are core components of the Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA). New features released in Oracle 12c Release 2 are so vast that we can practically write a book on it. Charles Kim and Nitin Vengurlekar will reveal all the core new components associated with RAC/ASM/Data Guard. They will discuss how you can achieve higher level of availability and scalability. They will start by discussing rapid home provisioning, streamlined GI installation, RAC reader nodes, load-aware resource placement for Oracle Grid Infrastructure and go deeper into additional functionality improvements. For ASM, they will discuss flex disk groups and file groups, IO Server, ACFS Snapshot Enhancements, and other subtle improvements. Last, they will go deep with Data Guard new features such as MIRA, no logging support, extended support for ADG, extended broker support, enhancements for PDBs and much more.
Featured Speakers: Charles Kim, Co-found and President, Viscosity North America and Nitin Vengurlekar, Chief Evangelist/CTO, Viscosity North America
