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.

Hands-On Labs

I like to start off with the hands-on labs (HOL) since to me the greatest value is in getting your hands dirty with the technology. Some of these may already be full by the time you read this so be quick if you want to add them to your schedule!

  • Oracle Enterprise Manager Database as a Service: Automation for Broader Cloud Services – In this hands-on lab, you will explore the latest release of Oracle Enterprise Manager, 12c, which enables rapid enterprisewide adoption of database as a service (DBaaS), assisted by a new service catalog and self-service provisioning features that simplify high availability, disaster recovery, and fast data cloning. Participants will choose from a variety of basic to advanced exercises that cover:
    • Creating a DBaaS platform for new database provisioning, using standardized pluggable DBaaS
    • Deploying a comprehensive service catalog
    • Exploring new agile data refresh capabilities with Snap Clone and the Oracle Recovery Manager (Oracle RMAN) feature of Oracle Database
    • Maintaining the cloud DBaaS infrastructure

    This is scheduled twice – Monday 1:15 pm – 2:15 pm and Tuesday 5:15 pm – 6:15 pm.

  • Rapidly Mass-Deploy Oracle Fusion Middleware with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Provisioning – Enterprises are increasingly using Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c to rapidly mass-deploy Oracle Fusion Middleware components. The secure and stable provisioning platform of Oracle Enterprise Manager enables administrators to quickly provision a large number of environments on virtual or physical hosts, based on gold images. In this hands-on lab, you’ll learn how to discover and verify an Oracle SOA environment, based on best practices, and how to make a clone of this environment and save it to Oracle Enterprise Manager. You’ll then learn how to use this cloned image to provision a new instance of the initial environment. This HOL is only scheduled once – Monday 2:45 pm to 3:45 pm
  • Achieving Standardization with Oracle Enterprise Manager Database Lifecycle Management – Database deployment standardization is the key to maximizing DBA efficiency and is a first step toward the cloud. Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c supports comprehensive lifecycle management geared toward standardization, including automated provisioning; patching; and change, configuration, and compliance management. This hands-on lab focuses on these key features and how they support standardization. This HOL is scheduled twice – Monday 4:15 pm – 5:15 pm and Wednesday 4:15 pm to 5:15 pm.
  • Private Cloud Self-Service, Oracle Fusion Middleware PaaS with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c – The Oracle Enterprise Manager platform enables enterprises to quickly deploy a private middleware PaaS cloud integrated with other services such as IaaS or DBaaS and empowers them to deliver an agile, secure, and stable self-service model for deploying Java platforms and applications to their users. In this session, you’ll learn how to create and publish services from the administrator’s viewpoint and how to make those available to self-service users. You’ll also learn how to provision and configure those services for use, deploy your Java applications, and integrate a middleware PaaS cloud with a database PaaS cloud. Finally, you’ll see how you can monitor your deployed applications and configure policies for performance- or schedule-based scaling. This HOL is scheduled twice – Tuesday 3:45 pm – 4:45 pm and Thursday 1 pm – 2 pm.

Conference Sessions

These are the standard presentations slots. They’ve been cut back to 45 minutes this year, so you’ll either need to ask questions quickly or grab the speakers afterwards if you have more detailed questions. Those marked with an asterisk are presentations by Oracle employees, those with a plus sign are co-presented by Oracle and customer speakers. those without either are totally presented by customers.
