Oracle Exalytics - Tips and Experiences

Presentation begins:


Presentation duration:

45 minutes

Presentation Abstract:

Rittman Mead were the first UK Oracle Partner to acquire an Oracle Exalytics server, Oracle's in-memory engineered system for business intelligence. Over the past year we have implemented and prototyped Exalytics solutions for customers around the world, and have built-up a body of knowledge around the best way to load and refresh the TimesTen cache, create highly-interactive dashboards, and support large communities of users all running complex queries concurrently. We've also  encountered the usual "Version 1.0" issues, and worked out how best to deploy Exalytics alongside other engineered systems such as Oracle Exadata, and how to deploy Exalytics so that it's highly-available and secure. In this session, we'll go through our experiences, share tips on what works well and not so well with Exalytics, and talk about some of the utilities and accelerators our team have developed to speed up the deployment of an Exalytics system.
