AWS re:invent 2018 – Day 5 – Final day

By | Technology Survey | No Comments

On Friday, it’s the last day for AWS re:Invent convention in Las Vegas. I didn’t know in advance what to expect because I have to admit that even if I started to use AWS, there is still a lot to learn. And that’s why I personally think working with technology is interesting, it’s always moving and there is always something new to investigate or learn. This morning, I attended a very interesting session about the life of…

AWS re:invent 2018 – Day 4

By | Technology Survey | No Comments

Thursday morning it’s time for the keynote from Dr Werner Vogels. A big part of the keynote was about databases again. Maybe AWS people knows that there are still lots of DBAs out there! It’s also again a focus on Amazon Aurora (relational), Dynamo DB (NoSQL) and AWS Redshift that are replacing Oracle databases Amazon was using. There was also a focus on how S3 works to maintain the best durability for the data. I’ve seen…

Then it’s also…

AWS re:invent 2018 – Day 2

By | Technology Survey | No Comments

Second day in Las Vegas for the AWS re:Invent conference. It was time to travel a little bit around the campus to attend some sessions at the Aria. The planning was still around databases and a bit AWS knowledge. The shuttle service worked perfectly in both directions with a reasonable time travel between the 2 hotels. But with such time travels, you can’t always be in all sessions you would like to see. I started…

AWS re:invent 2018 – Day 1

By | Technology Survey | No Comments

Yesterday was my first day at AWS re:Invent conference. The venue is quite impressive, the conference is split between 6 hotels where you can attend different types of sessions including chalk talk, keynotes, hands-on labs or workshop. For my first day, I stayed in the same area in The Venetian to make it easy. The walking distance is quite big between some places so it requires to carefully plan the day to be able to see…

Oracle Open World 2018 D1: Larry Ellison keynote Cloud Gen2

By | Database Administration & Monitoring | No Comments

Today (23.10.2018) it was the first time I attended to a Keynote from Larry Ellison and I haven’t been disappointed. Not because of technical information or about true facts and figures but simply because of his charism and Oracle capability to transform a keynote in a real show. Whatever he is speaking about and whatever if it’s true or not, I’ve to admit that it was really distracting and funny. As expected during this keynote,…

ATP vs ADW – the Autonomous Database lockdown profiles

By | Cloud, Oracle | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . The Oracle database has always distinguished two types of workloads: transactional (OLTP) and datawarehouse (VLDB, DWH, DSS, BI, analytics). There is the same idea in the managed Oracle Cloud with two autonomous database services. To show how this is old, here is how they were defined in the Oracle7 Tuning Book: The definition has not changed a lot. But the technology behind DSS/DWH has improved. Now, with In-Memory Column Store, Smart…

ADWC new OCI interface

By | Cloud, Oracle | No Comments

By Franck Pachot . A few things have changed about the Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud service recently. And I’ve found the communication not so clear, so here is a short post about what I had to do to start the service again. The service has always been on the OCI data centers but was managed with the classic management interface. It has been recently migrated to the new interface: Note that ADWC here is the…
