Oracle OpenWorld 2014 – XML and JSON presentations, meetings and Hands-On Labs

Oracle OpenWorld is about to start and I am looking forward to it. This year…

Oracle Open World Schedule

I will be in San Francisco a little early this year and as I’m not longer an ACE Director, it’s to attend the IOUC, (International Oracle User Conference) at Redwood Shores on Sept.

Private Cloud and Lifecycle Management with EM12c at OOW14

Yet again the monster that is Oracle Open World is about to take over San Francisco. I won’t be making it this year, but considering we had something like 60,000 attendees last year I’d hate to see what the numbers are gonna be this year! :)

To try and make it a little easier for you to find all the Private Cloud and Lifecycle Management with EM12c material, here are the ones I know about. If you know of any I’ve missed, feel free to add them in the comments field below! Note that this is only the Private Cloud and Lifecycle Management material – the complete master list of all EM material can be found in the master Focus On EM12c document.

Oracle Midlands Event #5 : Summary

Oracle Midlands Event #5 happened last night.

First up was Martin Widlake speaking about clustering data to improve performance. The cool and scary thing about Oracle is you often go into session like this thinking it’s all going to be stuff you already know, then you realise how much you either didn’t know in the first place, or had forgotten. A couple of times Martin asked questions of the audience and I felt myself shrinking back in my seat and chanting the mantra, “Don’t pick me!”, in my head. :)

About index range scans, disk re-reads and how your new car can go 600 miles per hour!

Despite the title, this is actually a technical post about Oracle, disk I/O and Exadata & Oracle In-Memory Database Option performance. Read on :)

If a car dealer tells you that this fancy new car on display goes 10 times (or 100 or 1000) faster than any of your previous ones, then either the salesman is lying or this new car is doing something radically different from all the old ones. You don’t just get orders of magnitude performance improvements by making small changes.

Perhaps the car bends space around it instead of moving – or perhaps it has a jet engine built on it (like the one below :-) :
