Podcast Show Notes: Cloud Expert Audience Q & A

The latest OTN ArchBeat Podcast program is a three-part series recorded during a question and answer session at the OTN Architect Day event held at Oracle Headquarters in Redwood Shores California on July 9, 2013. Earlier in the day the audience attended three presentations given by Oracle Cloud Computing experts Dr. James Baty, Anbu Krishnaswamy, and Markus Michalewicz. After those presentations the Q & A session gave the audience a chance to pick the brains of those experts.

In order to provide some context to the Q&A, I suggest you take a moment to review the slide presentations from the event, listed below:

As you'll hear, the first couple of questions refer to Markus’s presentation, which covered the DBaaS implementation at the  Commonwealth Bank of Australia. When Markus mentions "CBA," he's talking about Commonwealth Bank of Australia. 

The Panelists

  • Dr. James Baty: Vice President, Oracle Global Enterprise Architecture Program. LinkedIn
  • Anbu Krishnaswamy: Enterprise Architect with the Oracle Global Enterprise Architecture Program (GEAP) group. LinkedIn
  • Markus Michalewicz: Director of Product Management, Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC). LinkedIn

The Conversation

  • Listen to Part 1: The panel responds to questions about lessons learned in the Commonwealth Bank of Australia project, and about recording/reporting usage costs in an IaaS environment.
  • Listen to Part 2: The panel responds to a question about migration paths to Oracle 12c that will accommodate an eventual move to the cloud.
  • Listen to Part 3: When is managing a Cloud ecosystem like playing Sim City?

8:30am - 9:00am Registration and Continental Breakfast
9:00am - 9:45am
Keynote
21st Century IT | Dr. James Baty
VP, Global Enterprise Architecture Program, Oracle

Imagine a time long, long ago. A time when servers were certified and dedicated to specific applications, when anything posted on an enterprise web site was from restricted, approved channels, and when we tried to limit the growth of 'dirty' data and storage.

Today, applications are services running in the muti-tenant hybrid cloud. Companies beg their customers to tweet them, friend them, and publicly rate their products. And constantly analyzing a deluge of Internet, social and sensor data is the key to creating the next super-successful product, or capturing an evil terrorist.

The old IT architecture was planned, dedicated, stable, controlled, with separate and well-defined roles. The new architecture is shared, dynamic, continuous, XaaS, DevOps.

This keynote session describes the challenges and opportunities that the new business / IT paradigms present to the IT architecture and architects.

9:45am - 10:30am
Technical Session
Oracle Cloud: A Case Study in Building a Cloud | Anbu Krishnaswami
Enterprise Architect, Oracle

Building a Cloud can be challenging thanks to the complex requirements unique to Cloud computing and the massive scale typically associated with Cloud. Cloud providers can take an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) approach and build a cloud on virtualized commodity hardware, or they can take the Platform as a Service (PaaS) path, a service-oriented approach based on pre-configured, integrated, engineered systems. This presentation uses the Oracle Cloud itself as a case study in the use of engineered systems, demonstrating how the technical design of engineered systems is leveraged for building PaaS and SaaS Cloud services and a Cloud management infrastructure. The presentation will also explore the principles, patterns, best practices, and architecture views provided in Oracle's Cloud reference architecture.

10:30 am -10:45 am Break
10:45am-11:30am
Technical Session
Database as a Service | Markus Michalewicz
Senior Principal Product Manager Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC)

New applications are now commonly built in a Cloud model, where the database is consumed as a service, and many established business processes are beginning to migrate to database as a service (DBaaS). This adoption of DBaaS is made possible by the availability of new capabilities in the database that enable resource pooling, dynamic resource management, model-based provisioning, metered use, and effective quality-of-service controls. This session will examine the catalog of database services at a large commercial bank to understand how these capabilities are enabling DBaaS for a wide range of needs within the enterprise.

11:30 am - 12:00 pm
Panel Q&A

Dr. James Baty, Anbu Krishnaswami, and Markus Michalewicz respond to audience questions.

Registration is free, but seating is limited, so register now.
