A little while back I posted a blog on the official Oracle Enterprise Manager blog on using Enterprise Manager 12c Snap Clone with EMC storage. Last week, I also presented on exactly the same topic at the RMOUG Training Days in Denver, Colorado, and there was quite a bit of interest in the subject.
Given that level of interest, I thought I’d let you know about another opportunity to hear all about it even if (more...)
Yet again, it was a fantastic time at the RMOUG Training Days 2015 conference, as it has been every other year I have attended it. That is in no small measure due to the incredible work of the organizing committee, and in particular the Training Days Director, my colleague Kellyn Pot’Vin Gorman of dbakevlar.com fame. For me personally, the travel to get to Denver Colorado was somewhat more daunting than in previous years (see (more...)
It’s that time of the year again, when one of the best grass roots Oracle user group conferences takes place, the Rocky Mountain Oracle User Group Training Days in Denver Colorado. I’ve been privileged enough to present at this conference several times in the past, and always have an absolute blast at it, so I try to submit a few papers each year. This year, I had three papers accepted. Two of them were designed (more...)
Just a quick note here to say I’ve added a new blog post to the official Enterprise Manager blog site. You can find it here.
Yesterday I posted notification of the latest plug-in releases for Enterprise Manager 22.214.171.124. There have been quite a number of enhancements in these new plug-ins, so let’s have a quick look at each plug-in and what’s new.

Customers often want to place PDBs that host data of similar applications inside a single CDB. Doing this (more...)

Sorry it’s taken a couple of days to finish off this series of blog posts on UKOUG Tech 14. I had expected to get some time on the trip back to write this, but as you’ll see if you keep reading, that really didn’t happen. So let’s go back to Day 3 of the conference.
I started the day by attending Patrick Hurley’s “Adventures in Database Administration” session. This was quite different to the normal (more...)
Day 2 of the UKOUG Tech 14 conference for me started with the second session (I spent the first session typing up the blog post on Day 1 as there wasn’t a presentation I was interested in). Tammy Bednar was presenting on “Creating a Test / Dev Database in Minutes Using the Oracle Database Appliance”. Tammy is another old timer at Oracle. Like myself and Maria Colgan, she has been an Oracle employee for 20 (more...)
Monday was the first day of the main part of the UKOUG Tech 14 conference, after SuperSunday’s additional content. I had a great night’s sleep and woke at 7 am, much to the disgust of Richard Foote who had been up for four hours already and didn’t seem to appreciate my #NoJetLagHere hashtag replying to his lack of sleep tweet. I managed to get to the conference relatively dry, but realized yet again that you (more...)
The UKOUG user group conference is one conference I have wanted to get to for a long time, but never managed to before. This year, with the change in job roles to being a database architect in the DBaaS team within the Enterprise Manager product management group, I finally got the go ahead to submit some papers. I was notified some time back that one of them had been accepted (Snap Clone) and one shortlisted (more...)
