It was great to meet some Oracle staff and end users. Also, as a presenter, the chance to raise awareness and answer questions on the topic I was presenting was extremely valuable.
The offering for users of the UKOUG RAC Cloud Infrastructure & Availability Special Interest Group comprises of SIGs, presentations in our Conferences and an extensive online library including publications and fortnightly ebulletins.
What does this Special Interest Group (SIG) offer?
This SIG incorporates high availability database configurations (such as Oracle RAC), the infrastructure required to support such configurations and the management of the technology supporting such deployments. The management of emerging technologies from the Oracle Corporation (such as the Exadata Database Machine) forms a subject for discussion within the group.
Aims & Objectives
- To discuss and disseminate information on highly available database configurations and how they fit within the wider aim of providing highly available business applications.
- To address the issues of managing the database within the whole IT infrastructure, as a component of the entire technology stack, including the influence that the database can have in deciding the correct solutions for other areas of the infrastructure, such as storage or network components.
- To consider how to best manage the technologies required to implement the database function, including best practice, standards and integration with other corporate software.
- To inform the user community of current and future capabilities of related Oracle technologies
Benefits of being involved
The SIG provides a forum for the discussion of technologies such as virtualisation and cloud deployment that may have a role in increasing application availability. This SIG facilitates the exchange of information and best practices between Oracle and the user community and provide a network for users to discuss common issues.
