Oracle Database 19c : Installations, RAC, Data Guard and Upgrades

I’ve been playing around with Oracle Database 19c on LiveSQL since it was upgraded, and I pretty much thought that would be what I was stuck with until the on-prem release, as I don’t have an Exadata and it’s not on Oracle Cloud DBCS yet. Having seen a bunch people doing stuff on VMs, I got a bit frustrated and looked on eDelivery and low and behold the 19c software is available for download, even (more...)

Day 2 started a little late for me and I missed the first block of speakers. Sorry Alex!

The first session of the day for me was Franck Pachot with “Microservices : Get rid of your DBA and send the DB into Burnout”. The session started with a rousing chorus of “Happy Birthday” for Franck. My bad summary of the session would be, pick the right tool and the right approach for the job. The (more...)

OBUG Tech Days Belgium 2019 : Day 1

The day started at my normal wake-up time. My flight wasn’t until 10:50, but I decided the leave for the airport really early to avoid traffic. It makes no difference to me if I’m at home on my laptop, in the airport on my laptop, or at work… 🙂
