I’ll be a presenter at Oracle Open World 2010
I submitted an abstract to the Oracle OpenWorld 2010 that was found to be worthwhile enough to be accepted. Here are the session details:
Speaker(s) Christian BILIEN, BNP PARIBAS Corporate Investment Banking, Head of the DBAs
Monday, September 20, 2:00PM | Moscone South, Rm 236 60 min.
Session ID: S314649
Title: Large-Scale Oracle RAC (and Sun Oracle Database Machine) Scalability Design
Abstract: In this technical session, hear how a large corporate investment bank tames a yearly 50 percent to 100 percent data growth rate with Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) and Sun Oracle Database Machines. With databases totaling hundreds of terabytes, an integrated design of databases, storage, and servers is the cornerstone of scalability. This presentation highlights storage design from an Oracle RAC perspective as well as the specific challenges of Oracle RAC data warehouses and Oracle RAC geographical clusters. Real-life measurements on Oracle Solaris, Linux, EMC² storage, and RDS over InfiniBand (outside and inside the Sun Oracle Database Machine) illustrate performance and scalability perspectives and bottlenecks.
This page is an introduction to my blog, which is dedicated to Oracle data base performance management. I found over the years sharing knowledge to be an invaluable tool in assisting me in my various consulting assignments. Spending most of my time in capacity planning, tuning, application sizing and performance management, I thought it might be of interest to broaden my knowledge by creating new opportunities to exchange on those ever-changing topics.
A quick word on this blog title (an integrated view of Oracle, Unix and storage arrays performance and tuning) : many Oracle blogs, books and web sites are around, some are extremely good. I choose to focus on what seems to me a seldom-explored topic : correlating Oracle, Unix and storage performance and tuning knowledge to better understand the performance ins and outs of large, high end Oracle data bases.
I will also strive to avoid English incorrectnesses, but I have to ask for clemency in advance.
I also found that some comments end up as spams. I try to screen the spams before they get deleted, but if you do not get an answer to a post, it might just be that I did not see it.
