Coming to Oracle OpenWorld? Hope to see you there.

Scott Dickson
Enterprise Systems Architect

Oracle OpenWorld 2017 is right around the corner.  It starts this Sunday, October 1, at the Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco.  This is a great opportunity to see what's new and exciting from all parts of Oracle - Software, Hardware, Cloud, Services, everything.

If you are coming, build your session grid here: https://events.rainfocus.com/catalog/oracle/oow17/catalogoow17

I will be leading two sessions this year.  The first is a presentation with Peter Wilson from the Oracle SPARC Cloud team.  The second is a hands-on lab with Salman Ashfaq of the Oracle Solution Center.

CON6296: Lift and Shift your Oracle Solaris Workloads to the Oracle Cloud

In this session learn how easy it is to move your Oracle Solaris–based workloads to the Oracle Cloud. Hear about the best practices required to ensure that you can securely deploy your applications and data on Oracle SPARC–based cloud solutions, and what you need to know to prepare for the migration. Some of the considerations for networking and storage are also discussed, as well as how to transition from a fully on-premises workload to public or hybrid cloud.

Time: Monday, Oct 02, 5:45 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Location: Marriott Marquis (Yerba Buena Level) - Salon 13

This session will share some of the details of the Oracle SPARC Compute Cloud and share customer experiences that make it simple and easy to migrate your existing workloads directly into the SPARC cloud.

HOL7783: Orchestrate an Oracle Database in Minutes with Ansible and Oracle Solaris

Being able to quickly orchestrate an application is a critical element of any successful cloud deployment. In this hands-on lab walk through orchestrating an Oracle Database instance in Oracle Solaris Zones using Ansible playbooks. Learn to reliably automate your operations and eliminate repetitive tasks.

Time: Tuesday, Oct 03, 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Location: Hilton San Francisco Union Square (Ballroom Level) - Continental Ballroom 3

This lab will give a brief overview of Ansible and Ansible on Solaris.  Then, we will lead the students through the process of creating a new VM to host a database, prepare the VM to accommodate the Oracle Database, and finally to deploy the Oracle Database into that VM.  You will see that Ansible can be used to automate complicated, multi-tier deployments in a consistent, standardized way.

I'm looking forward to seeing you all there and having a full house for not only these but all the other Systems and OS sessions.
