Oracle OpenWorld 2018 is just around the corner and we want to make sure you’re able to maximize your time at the event from October 22-25.

Below is a personal guide to the top five sessions that you should plan to attend while exploring Oracle Database Appliance.

#1: Customer Perspectives on Business Value Gains with Oracle Database Appliance [CAS3962]

Thursday, Oct 25, 1:00 p.m. - 1:45 p.m. | Moscone South - Room 215

Join this session to hear how Oracle Database customers are driving better outcomes with Oracle Database Appliance versus traditional methods of building and deploying IT infrastructure.

Come hear from customers in education, healthcare, and retail in this informative session.

#2: Oracle Database Appliance: A Technical Deep Dive [TIP4123]

Monday, Oct 22, 10:30 a.m. - 11:15 a.m. | Moscone West - Room 3008

Oracle Database Appliance provides the lowest entry cost of all Oracle’s engineered systems. It is architected with Oracle Database best practices built in and takes less than two hours to deploy a 2-node Oracle RAC cluster—the complete storage and software stack. How can Oracle Database Appliance accomplish this? Attend this session to gain a deeper insight into the design and discover how it can reduce your risk to implement highly available databases environments so you can focus on the business instead of chasing down patches and storage topologies.

#3: Oracle Database Appliance vs. Commodity x86 Hardware: The REAL Differences [PRO4122]

Wednesday, Oct 24, 11:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | Moscone West - Room 3008

Database Appliance is the smallest engineered system from Oracle. It offers tightly integrated hardware and software stacks to provide simple deployment and patching, database best practices baked into the provisioning, and capacity-on-demand licensing that allows you to control your cost. But isn’t Oracle Database Appliance just an x86 box? Join this session and see how Oracle Database Appliance is architected to run mission-critical workloads on-premises, serve as your corner stone to a hybrid cloud solution architecture, and add value to your business.

#4: Hands-on Lab: Oracle Database Appliance [HOL6321]

In this hands-on lab get access to a simulated Oracle Database Appliance environment where you can provision the system, create and delete databases, configure backups, and more. Discover the ease-of-use capabilities of Oracle Database Appliance, and see how simple it is to manage your database estate with both a full web-based GUI and (for those of you love scripting) a full-featured CLI.

#5 Deploy Database/Applications in Kernel-Based Virtual Machine on Oracle Database Appliance [TIP4121]

Are you looking for a way to consolidate your databases and applications onto fewer systems and still be able to isolate the workloads and save money on software licensing? Virtualization provides a solution to utilize resources efficiently to run different workloads and easily move VMs to another on-premises system or even the cloud. Kernel-based virtual machine (KVM), one of the most popular hypervisors, is supported on Oracle Database Appliance to run your database and applications on a single platform. Attend this session to learn how to deploy KVM to provision and manage your databases and applications while controlling your software licensing costs on Oracle Database Appliance and the cloud.
