I’m honored and humbled to announce that I’ll be presenting at KSCOPE17 for the very first time. ODTUG will be hosting several thousand IT professionals for one of the largest and best Oracle conferences in North America on June 25 – 29 in San Antonio. As Oracle Database 12cR2 is finally available, I’m hoping that I can lend my perspective on several of its facets to the advantage of everyone attending.
There’s still time to register – I’ll see you there! Here’s a summary of what you’ll learn:
PDB Me, ASAP! Oracle Database 12cR2 Multitenant Workshop
Monday, June 26 10:30 AM – 12:45 PM Goldenrod
My colleague Charles Kim from ViscosityNA and I will be hosting a hands-on lab on Oracle 12cR2 Multitenant features. ViscosityNA has generously provided the computing infrastructure for your edification; just bring your laptop and prepare to have your skills strengthened and brain expanded on some mind-blowing new features of 12cR2 multitenancy, especially hot cloning, refreshable PDBs, lockdown profiles, resource limits, and much more.
Oracle 12cR2 Database In-Memory: Adventures with SwingBench TPC-DS
Wednesday, June 28 8:30 AM – 9:30 AM Begonia
For the past year, I’ve been working closely with Dominic Giles, the original author of Swingbench, to bring to fruition a new version of that venerable benchmark generator tool that now includes the ability to generate a simulated TPC-DS workload. We’ll harvest the fruits of our labor during this session as I demonstrate several aspects of Oracle Database 12cR2’s newest Database In-Memory features, including In-Memory Expressions, ILM ADO Policies for In-Memory Objects, and improvements to In-Memory Joins. This session offers a great way to dive into the deep end of the 12cR2 pool, so be sure to mark this one on your calendar.
Regression Analyzed, Tout de Suite: Leveraging Oracle 12c Database’s Real Application Testing (RAT) Suite
Wednesday, June 28 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Begonia
If you’re tired of not knowing exactly how your applications will perform once you’ve upgraded to Oracle Database 12cR1, or if you’re exhausted from tuning SQL after your developers have released their latest version of code without really testing it to destruction, then this session is for you. I will explain RAT Suite’s newest functions in 22.214.171.124, including Workload Intelligence, Workload Scale-Up, and Consolidated Database Replay, as well as its original key features – Database Workload Capture and Replay (DBWC/R) and SQL Performance Analyzer (SPA) – to avoid unnecessary application performance regression before applications are deployed.
