By Larry Wake -Oracle on Sep 26, 2012
We're overflowing with Monday sessions; literally more than one person can take in. Learn more about what's new in Oracle Solaris Studio, hear about the latest x86 and SPARC hardware optimizations, get some insights on cloud deployment strategies, and find out from your peers what they're doing with Oracle Solaris.
Monday, October 1st:
10:45 AM - Maximizing Your SPARC T4 Oracle Solaris Application Performance
(CON6382, Marriott Marquis - Golden Gate C3)
Hear how customers and commercial software partners have reached peak performance on SPARC T4 servers and engineered systems with Oracle Solaris Studio and its latest tools for analyzing, reporting, and improving runtime performance:
- Autoparallelizing, high-performance compilers
- Performance Analyzer (used to find performance hotspots)
- Thread Analyzer (to expose data races and deadlocks)
- Code Analyzer (used to discover latent memory
10:45 AM - Cloud Formation: Implementing IaaS in Practice with Oracle Solaris
(CON8787, Moscone South 302)
Decisions, decisions--at the same time, we've got a session that covers why Oracle Solaris is the ideal OS for public or private clouds, IaaS or PaaS, with built-in features for elastic infrastructure, unrivaled security,
superfast installation and deployment, nonstop availability, and
crystal-clear observability. This session will include a customer study on how Oracle Solaris is used in the cloud today to implement the Oracle stack.
(CON8760, Moscone South 270)
Hear from customers what benefits they have realized from using the Oracle stack on Oracle Exadata and Oracle’s SPARC SuperCluster and from using Oracle Solaris on those engineered systems, taking advantage of built-in lightweight OS virtualization (Zones), enterprise reliability and scale, and other key features.
1:45 PM - Case Study: Mobile Tornado Uses Oracle Technology for Better RAS and TCO
(CON4281, Moscone West 2005)
Mobile Tornado develops and markets instant communication platforms, replacing traditional radio networks with cellular networks. Its critical concern is uptime. Find out how they've used Oracle Solaris, Netra SPARC T4, and Oracle Solaris Cluster, including Oracle Solaris ZFS and Zones, for their Oracle Database deployments to improve reliability and drive down cost.
3:15 PM - Technical Panel: Developing High
Performance Applications on Oracle Solaris
(CON7196, Marriott Marquis - Golden Gate C2)
Engineers from the Oracle Solaris, Oracle Database, and Oracle Tuxedo development teams, and Oracle ISV Engineering discuss how they develop high-performance enterprise applications that take advantage of Oracle's SPARC and x86 servers, with Oracle Solaris Studio and new Oracle Solaris 11 features. Topics will include developer tools, parallel frameworks, best practices, and methodologies, as well as insights and case studies on parallelizing and optimizing application performance on Oracle Solaris. Bring your best questions!
3:15 PM - x86 Power Management with Oracle Solaris: Current State, Opportunities, and Future
(CON6271, Moscone West 2012)
Another option for this time slot: learn about how Intel Xeon and Oracle Solaris work together to reduce server power consumption. This presentation addresses some of the recent power management improvements in Oracle Solaris, opportunities to further improve energy efficiency, and some future directions for Oracle Solaris power management.
