OOW'15 Oracle NoSQL HOLs

A Chandak
Principal Product Manager

Last week at OOW'15 we did Hands On Labs for the NoSQL Database. There were essentially 2 tracks 1) Administrators 2) developers. I was often asked to provide the links for the labs, the links are available on our OTN pages and also posting the same on this blog. The link contains the VM that has pre-build scripts and a guide on the desktop that walks through the HOL step by step

 1) Admin Track

  • Contains steps to deploy a 3x3 cluster, we are simulating a scenario or 3 machine each with 3 disks 
  • Extends the cluster, by adding a node to each shard (3x4) thereby increasing the read throughput 
  • Backup and Recovery of your store
  • Securing the store

  2) Developer Track

  • Deploys the cluster
  • Create tables (parent and child)
  • Create Secondary Indexes
  • Populate the tables
  • Query using cli and application :
    • Range Queries
    • Retrieve both parent and child records in a single call
    • Usage of secondary indexes
  • Integrate with RDBMS using external tables
  • Data modelling exercise

HOL were designed to be very simple and they provide us an opportunity to help folks in our community to get started with Oracle NoSQL DB, but I also realize that its too short a time to convey all of the above in a 1 hour session - specially for folks who are trying the product for 1st time. There are some very intricate details around distributed system, topology management, data modelling etc..That's something we'd work upon as we do these session next year..I'd also like to hear from you folks, what you'd like your feedback on content, material etc..
