Oracle Database Appliance Unplugged @ Northern California Oracle Users Group

The Oracle Database Appliance is Simple, Reliable, & Affordable.  Still skeptical about the 'reliability'?

Join Sohan DeMel, Vice President, Product Strategy and Business Development, at the Northern California Oracle Users Group to demonstrate the fault-tolerance of the Oracle Database Appliance.

 A recent addition to Oracle’s Engineered System category, the Oracle Database Appliance offers customers a fully integrated system of software, servers, storage and networking in a single box that delivers high availability database services for a wide range of applications. Oracle Database Appliance has fault-tolerance built-in: The hardware is fully redundant. Oracle RAC protects against server failure and database instance failure. Oracle ASM triple mirroring maintains data redundancy. Storage multi-pathing and network bonding are built-in. In this demo-based presentation, members of the audience will be invited on-stage to literally unplug the Oracle Database Appliance – pull-out power cords, pull-out network cords, pull-out server trays, and pull out disks, all while the database is processing SwingBench transactions on the big screen.

When: May 31, 2012

Where: The NoCOUG Spring Conference
