Oracle OpenWorld 2013 – Recap

Posted by Kashif Manzoor on 2nd October 2013

I arrived in San Francisco on midday Saturday after 16hours flight from Dubai to attend Oracle OpenWorld as a Speakeropenworldand Oracle Excellence Award Winner. After check-in to hotel, went outside with another my friend for late lunch and visited Ferry Building area. Sunday morning started very early and OpenWorld registration went very smoothly, the first session I went to was DBA Expert Panel Discussion, where all leading DBAs were present.

Next was to spend 1 hour on IOUC User group booth to represent MEOUG. IOUC booth was setup to spread user group messages to OOW attendees. I met few of other User Group presidents and representatives, from there it was off to the OTN Lounge to meet other Oracle OTN/ACE folks. Finally reached to keynote of Sunday from Larry Ellison.

Following were the main announcements from keynote:

Oracle’s introduction of in-memory option for 12C database, as well as Big Memory Machine-M6-32

Ellison said that the in memory option will make getting responses to queries 100 times faster and we can now get responses faster than we can come up with the questions. The M6-32 Big Memory Machine, which is said to be ideal for in-memory databases is a high-powered server featuring a new processor in the form of the SPARC M6. The chip incorporates 12 cores – twice the number in the current M5, it can run 96 threads per processor.

Monday was big day for me as I was getting Oracle Excellence Award for Oracle Proactive Support Champion. Thank you Oracle for awarding me such a prestigious award. The Oracle Proactive Support Champion Individual Award recognizes individuals, who have made a significant impact on their company’s adoption and use of proactive support tools, best practices and have been able to influence others to adopt proactive tools.

This year my session got slot on Thursday 26th Oct, I was presenting on Oracle eBusiness Suite…

Recap of Oracle OpenWorld 2012, San Francisco

Posted by Kashif Manzoor on 7th October 2012

Finally a week full of oracle technology rhythm is over in San Francisco starting from 30-Sep to 4 Oct.

I reached to SFO on 28th Sep Friday evening; weather was cloudy just checked out of my hotel in Union Square named as Oracle Square… Was there a big arrangement for with Music festival

Saturday 29th Sep, I spend roaming in San Francisco, visited Farmer Market in Ferry building, China Town, Lombard Street and to end with to visit Alcatraz.

Saturday evening I just spend on doing some cosmetics changes in my presentation. This year I was attending as speaker in Oracle OpenWorld and my session ‘CON6172 – How to Manage a Successful Oracle E-Business Suite R12 Upgrade and Overcome the Challenges’ was scheduled on 1st Oct Monday at -4:45pm to 05:45pm.

Sunday morning, registration went very smooth as Oracle really has organized very well the entire registration process, after that I have attended few of the sessions and finally the time comes for Key Note from Larry Ellison with the title ‘Hardware and Software, Engineered to Work Together: Why It’s A Different Approach’. He spoke to few announcements about IAAS, Oracle Database 12c and Exadata X3, in memory database.

Oracle announces new version of oracle Database 12c for 2013. A multitenant Database for the Cloud.  Complete new database architecture with the concept of “container” database which may handle several isolated databases within this container.

The pluggable databases feature enables multiple databases to share a common instance it will treat as they are on separate instances. This will enable to save lots of memory and lots of time to do routine patching and upgrading databases. users through Pluggable Databases feature can also very easily spin-up instances without the usual process of dedicating and initializing a server. We can also upgrade the software for multiple database instances simultaneously, instead of doing one at a time. This feature will provide flexibility and simplify administration, and will be useful to manage a database within either a public or private cloud.

2nd key feature is multitenancy support in the 12c database. This feature enables the DBAs  to define resource allocation and priority by tenant and so separately manage the service level of each tenant.

Oracle Database 12c will also feature more advance use of memory and data compression, reducing dependency on disk I/O not only delivers better performance with ease of administration

Prior to this session there was another keynote from, Noriyuki Toyoki, Senior Vice President of Fujitsu Limited (sponsor of the OOW) introduced “Athena”, a new technology architecture for SPARC processors as the result of a long partnership between both Oracle and Fujitsu.

Oracle also announced a new version of the Exadata X3 machine with much more memory and flash drives to push entire database into a flash cache.
