This seminar gives you a unique chance to learn real life “war stories” from 100+ Exadata implementations, countless setups, migrations, patching and even some recovery tasks. There will be demos executed on Exadata machines to give you a feel of how the day-to-day life with Exadata looks in practice.

In this seminar, you will:

  • Gain insight in how the Exadata hardware solution, a top-to-bottom engineered system, differs from the traditional hardware + software configurations out there
  • Learn what kind of mindset changes would be required for deploying Exadata in a data centre and what kind of changes are usually required in the DBA, sysadmin, storage and network teams’ responsibilities
