  • Webinar 3 –Performance Stability, Tips, Tricks & Underscores
    .
    When: June 30, 2020 – 11:00h-13:00h (CEST)
    .
    The third of the virtual classrooms seminars will cover performance stability as we know that your biggest fear are unexpected plan changes. But there is much more. So we will give tips and tricks, and we’ll cover some underscore parameters which are essential in Oracle Database 19c. Please be aware that the webinar will take a bit longer than the advertised 90 minutes. But we hope it’s worth your time.
    .
  • Webinar 4 – Migrate to the Multitenant Architecture
    .
    When: July 2, 2020 – 11:00h-13:00h (CEST)
    .
    In the last of our 4 webinars we will cover Oracle Multitenant. Well, you may have heard various Multitenant talks over the past years already. Hence, after giving a short introduction into Oracle Multitenant will be on the migration to Oracle Multitenant. You can have 3 user-created PDBs with Oracle 19c as part of any Oracle Database license. So why not enter the world of PDBs. In this talk we will explain the different approaches, the pros and cons, we will cover minimal downtime strategies and fallback scenarios. And much much more. And please be aware upfront that the seminar may take a bit longer than advertised. There is so much to tell …

Poll – How often do you patch?

We did some interesting polls during the first two webinars. And during Webinar 1 we did ask, how often do you patch.

This was a very positive surprise to me. 60% patch at least twice a year, or even more often. And less than 20% state that you either don’t care or you patch only when you are forced to. That’s a much better result than years ago. Very very good.

Poll – On which releases are you right now?

During the second webinar, we did ask you about the various production database releases.

I’m not surprised that there are a good amount of “older than Oracle 11.2.0.3” databases out there in production. Usually there is a reason for it. But I’d strongly recommend to read this blog post I wrote a while ago:

Very happy to see that more than a forth of the participants has already Oracle 19c in production. This is awesome. And I expected Oracle 12.1.0.2 and Oracle 12.2.0.1 leading the field. What I didn’t expect (at least not before the seminar but many questions were regarding 11.2.0.4) are such a use of Oracle 11.2.0.4. Just remember that Extended Support runs out in 7 months.

But I see this positive: You participate in this webinar series because you want to upgrade.

Thanks for tuning in!
