Tips, tricks, (and maybe a few rants) so more DBAs become bulletproof!

KSCOPE 2012 and Other Happenings

This next week I’ll be speaking at KSCOPE 2012, helping out with the database track and flying the Enkitec flag, as well as hanging out at the Enkitec booth at the event.  Come by and see us, we have some cool stuff on hand and to discuss.  If you are interested in anything Exadata, Exalogic, you know the drill, let us know and we can tell you all about our upcoming E4 conference in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area on August 13-14th, E4
I will be attending the E4 event and the day after, August 15th, will be speaking on “Oracle for the SQL Server DBA” with the SQLPass group of Ft. Worth. I want to thank Chris Shaw for introducing me to Mary Mathais of the Ft. Worth SQLPass group for welcoming me to the group to speak with them.
As with everyone, we are looking forward to Oracle Open World in the fall. Tim and I have booked the train, the California Zephyr, for our trip out again. Its a 33hr trip, which is quite pleasant due to the lovely scenery, wonderful food, observation areas and our Bedroom car we booked, which is quite comfortable for the duration of the trip. Last year we took this same route, enjoyed the aspens in full, fall glory and then dreaded the simple three hour flight back as soon as we arrived to the first security terminal at the airport!
I’ve submitted abstracts for UTOUG’s, (Utah Oracle User Group) Symposium, coming up on September 1st, which is a quick one day trip for me from Denver. I’m also waiting, as are many, on UKOUG’s approval of abstract submissions.
Before I present at KSCOPE this next week, I’m going to attempt to add a few additional slides to my presentation on Windows installations gotchas with EM12c and go over best practices with job migrations as Oracle is still has yet to release a utility to assist DBA’s in this crucial area for many.
See many of you in San Antonio next week for KSCOPE 2012!
