This program was recorded on Wednesday, September 21, 2016, during Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco.

The topic was suggested by Oracle ACE and frequent OTN contributor Arturo Viveros, who, along with other panelists, was in town for the big Oracle event. Listen.

Azure and Oracle Cloud – My First Time

Below talks about my experience trying out Azure and Oracle cloud for the very first time (and at the same time).


So last night I tried for the very 1st time the Azure and Oracle Cloud. Here, I just like to share my experience. BTW I am a big fan of DigitalOcean because of its user friendly interface, very fast to setup (end to end 2 minutes w/ few button clicks), and fantastic community and (more...)

Default Tablespace Encryption In The Clouds?

One of my customers called me up last week and said he’s been having the most peculiar problem. He created a new instance on the Microsoft Azure environment (12.1.0.2) and he can’t create new tablespace. The error he’s getting “ORA-28365: wallet is not open” and he was wondering “what gives?!”.

This is kind of an interesting issue. When someone who never heard of the wallet, looking at the message doesn’t mean anything reasonable. (more...)

Oracle Database Cloud Service: Set up Access Rules

I’ve started to test Oracle Database Cloud Services. I applied for trial, it’s accepted (you can also get a trial account, there’s no special requirement for it). After I got my welcome emails, I created a database service. As expected, it was very easy. All I needed is to click a couple of times, enter mandatory information and then wait until my Database is provisioned.

Oracle creates a VM for each database because they provide (more...)

What keeps database administrators awake at night and the search for the promised land

What keeps you and me awake at night? When I was a consultant for a Fortune 500 company in Southern California, we were getting beaten up to prove that databases were being backed up correctly and that disaster recovery would work. The truth of the matter was that we didn’t even have an accurate list of all the databases and databases would go down for days without anybody noticing which means that they were not (more...)

AWS DMS Tips for Oracle Migrations

Some time ago I published a post regarding the Database Migration Service (DMS) on AWS. The service had just appeared at that time and looked very promising. It is still appealing and has a good use and potential to mature and be better. I was able to test and try it in several cases moving data to AWS and between RDS databases inside AWS. During those exercises, I ran into some issues and wanted to (more...)
