Alejandro Vargas
Technical Leader, ACS Global Delivery, Infrastructure & BigData

Exadata is changing the world of Database Performance, on this forum we will have two EXADATA Production Customers updates.

75 million Customer Telecom Turkcell will be represented by Ferhat Sengonul, Senior OS Administrator, DBA, and Datawarehouse Project Leader, that led Exadata implementation and scale out to their actual 3 full, 24 database nodes, Exadata racks.

Ferhat will present his experience with a very large Data-Warehouse in Exadata, including online high performance reporting, VLDB backup and recovery best practices and upgrading from a traditional 11 racks (1 Sun M9000 Sparc 7; 10 storage racks 250 TB uncompressed) datawarehouse to a full rack and then to multiple racks. We will hear also about his consolidation project of all datawarehouse databases in Exadata.

Golden Pages, the first Consolidation on Exadata project implemented in Israel will be presented by Shimi Nahum, Senior DBA and Exadata Project Leader.
Shimi will tell us about the challenges the Exadata environment presented to him as a DBA and how he faced them, and the impact of using Oracle Exadata to consolidate multiple Customer databases, including Siebel and ERP databases.

A practical dive into the technology will be presented by Oracle's Ophir Manor, the responsible for the several POC's being run by different Israeli Customers.

And finally I will tell about the experiences from the field, installing and implementing Exadata at different Customers around the world.

Exadata is radically changing the rules and expectations a DBA can have of an Oracle Database; this first hand experiences promise to be one of the most interesting conferences in Israel this year.
