OOW 2018: Cloud Migration from AIX to ExaCC – for DBAs and managers

OOW 2018: Cloud Migration from AIX to ExaCC - for DBAs and managers

Yes, OOW starts next week. And I’d like to introduce the third of our 4 talks. And let me say upfront about this talk at OOW 2018: Cloud Migration from AIX to ExaCC – for DBAs and managers. This is not the usual “cloud” talk 🙂 The official title is: Oracle Database Cloud Migration: Fast, Simple, Universal. Well, we should discuss the “simple“. But that’s why you want to see this talk. It will happen on Thursday, 9:00 a.m.. Hence, remember to leave the party the night before not too late. You need to be awake when you visit our talk in Moscone West 3004 on Thursday, Oct 25, 9:00h.

What is this talk all about?

The title includes “Cloud“. But that’s just a small part of the story. We’ll show a universal approach to migrate approximately 1000 databases from IBM AIX to ExaCC and OCC machines. This is a talk will combine deep insights into our technical approach using a Transportable Tablespaces and a ZDLRA (Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance) to roll forward incremental backups cross-platform and cross-Endianness. We show all the detailed steps on our journey to a scripted and automated migration. So you will see a lot of things around TTS including some cool best practices and other pieces. Plus we’ll show you the customized brand new PERL scripts our mates from the MAA/ZDLRA team have written to move incremental backups from AIX to Linux – with just two simple calls.

But there’s much more in this talk.
