Mark Your Calendars for November 18, 2014’s OTN Virtual Technology Summit (VTS)

On November 18, 2014 I’ll be presenting an extended version of my mini-seminar on Oracle 12c Database Multitenant features through the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) Virtual Technology Summit (VTS) series. Signing up for the seminar is simple, and you’ll get a chance to see the latest Multitenant features, including how to clone PDBs quickly, how to leverage RMAN for swift backup and recovery, how to migrate data quickly and efficiently from non-CDBs to PDBs, and how to insure that each PDB get just the resources it needs to handle its workloads via DBRM.

Unfortunately I won’t be available immediately after the webinar to take your questions, as I’ll be incommunicado as I travel to Auckland, NZ. But the OTN support staff assures me that Oracle 12c Multitenant experts will be on hand to answer any questions that might arise.

So please make a note to attend! It promises to be the densest stack of 12c material I’ve ever presented in less than one hour.


Kia Ora! See You In Auckland, NZ @ NZOUG

I am privileged to be presenting on two Oracle 12c Database features yet again this month. This time, however, will be the farthest I’ve ever travelled from home to talk about all things Oracle: I will be attending the closing few days of the OTN ACE Director APAC Tour in Auckland, New Zealand on November 19th and 20th.

It’s my first time visiting New Zealand as well, so I’m looking forward to the legendary Kiwi hospitality, scenery, and wit. It is a great honor to walk the same ground as Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Gandalf the Grey, and Aragorn son of Arathorn. (Yes, I am an LOTR geek as well – I know that NZ is not Middle Earth, but according to Peter Jackson, it should be.)

I look forward to meeting my fellow ACEs and ACE Directors in Auckland later this month! Between us all and our gracious hosts, the New Zealand Oracle Users Group (NZOUG), I know it will be a fantastic gathering. Please put out the word to anyone in that corner of the world!
