I’m not sure if I’m lucky or just a glutton for punishment. But I have picked up a third breakout session slot at VMworld and I will be co presenting with Mark Achtemichuk (@vmMarkA on twitter) who is a fellow VCDX and performance specialist in the VMware Technical Marketing Team. The session is APP-BCA1624 – Virtualizing Oracle: An Architectural and Performance Deep Dive. If you have an interest in virtualizing Oracle and getting the best performance then this will be a session not to be missed. Here is the session abstract to wet your appetite.
APP-BCA1624 Session Abstract:
The world has moved beyond wondering if critical workloads can be virtualized. The issue of interest today is how to maximize the benefit of virtualizing challenging workloads like Oracle databases. This session will take a detailed look at how and why Oracle runs better on vSphere than on hardware, and shows how you can analyze workloads to achieve similar results and be prepared to address typical operational issues. Michael Webster has recently completed an Oracle virtualization project at the University of Auckland with VMware Professional Services, and will highlight the most important characteristics of Oracle workloads in the Univeristy’s recently completedvirtualization project, and describe how these characteristics can be measured and accommodated before going live. Mark Achtemichuck is a VMware’s Performance Specialist, and will dive deeper into how vSphere architectural considerations are related to these key characteristics, and provide guidance on efficiently analyzing and responding to performance issues you may encounter in daily operation.
Look out for this in the VMworld session catalog. I hope to see lots of people here and for you to ask lots of questions.
[Update] This session is now available online from VMworld.com if you have a login and access to the content.
