Oracle by Example portal now shows 12g

A quick post… which is a bit interesting…

As I was searching for Exadata viewlets in Oracle By Example portal (http://goo.gl/HjshR) I clicked on the “Advanced Search”

and then filtered by Product Family (Database) and then by Product

to my surprise there was an option for “Database 12g”….

oh well.. I checked on the Lifetime Support Policy (http://www.oracle.com/us/support/library/lifetime-support-technology-069183.pdf) and looking at the release dates
it could be possible that they will release the new version anytime this year..

could be in Oracle Open World 2011? hmmm… ;)

 

 


Hotsos 2011 – Mining the AWR Repository for Capacity Planning, Visualization, and other Real World Stuff

For all that loves Oracle performance.. Hotsos is truly the best conference, all the speakers are performance geeks, all the attendees talks about performance. Everything is about performance! There are lot more stuff that I like about my first Hotsos experience, the following are some of them..

I like that presenters and attendees are curious about what each performance geek has to say..

I like that after all the sessions, (more...)

I’ll be speaking at HOTSOS 2011!

Hotsos is an annual conference that is devoted on Oracle system performance and the people presenting there are really passionate about their research and highly specialized about their subject area. Kinda geeky, but hey, performance is never boring.. and for me there’s still a lot of things to learn on each of the areas of performance and these are as follows: 
  • Application Testing
  • Benchmark
  • Capacity Planning
  • Database Tuning
  • Hardware and OS
  • Performance Tools
  • SQL Tuning
  • Troubleshooting & Internals

Yesterday, I received an email that I have been accepted as a presenter for Hotsos 2011 ;) this is really cool .. !

  • Google Sites

The story behind it…
