Ten Real-World Customer Configurations on Oracle Database Appliance [CON3817]

Oracle Database Appliance is a powerful machine, yet its name hides its versatility. Certainly, it provides a great place to run Oracle databases but given that it runs virtualization, it also offers much more for the Oracle-centric platform builder. This session presents 10 different real-world customer implementations from various database configurations, to middleware infrastructures such as Oracle WebLogic and Oracle SOA Suite, through to application deployments like Oracle’s JD Edwards. For each example in this session, the approach chosen is discussed—as well as lessons learned—to provide the audience with a clear path for moving forward with Oracle Database Appliance.

What’s so Special about the Oracle Database Appliance? (Winter 2014 Update)

The Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) is one of Oracle’s best kept secrets: it is a “small” engineered system that provides a “database in a box” and, since virtualization capability was added in spring 2013, offers lots of potential use cases to the Oracle infrastructure architect.

Simon started researching this system in autumn 2012, took part in a production installation in summer 2013, and since then has focussed his attention on deploying Fusion Middleware products (such as Oracle SOA Suite) on the ODA. He shares these experiences in this technical session which is intended to help any organisation who might be considering deploying databases and applications to this system. It describes what’s nice about the ODA, its limitations and, based on customer experiences, how it can be used most effectively. The important new ODA features introduced in 2014 will also be covered.
