Hi, I’m Andy Baker and this blog is my attempt to give the
Oracle production database administrators view of life. I hope to provide some interesting updates
covering general items of interest, the issues I face as well as some I have
previously solved. This is all based on my experiences at real client sites and
will cover the Oracle RDBMS, RAC, Exadata and general administration Oracle DBA
tasks as well as tips and tricks.
Although I am currently based in Oracle Consulting Services (OCS) my previous experience within Oracle has also been with Oracle Support Services (OSS) as a senior backup and recovery engineer. I have been working with Oracle databases for over 18 years and have experience in a wide range of industries and roles. This covers Banking, Oil and Gas, Insurance and Telecoms for many major global organizations. I have worked in software development but mainly focus in production support dealing with management and staff at varying levels, whilst having to meet rigorous performance and demanding time schedules.
