NYOUG SIG Webinar: Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance for Exadata Backup & Recovery

In Friday December 14, 2012 at 12:00 PM -1:00 PM EDT I will be giving a webinar for NYOUG SIG with the following abstract
When it comes to the backup and recovery infrastructure of the Exadata Database Machine, conventional solutions often have only limited performance to keep up with Exadata throughput, whereas Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance can be configured as a very fast, capable, and easy-to-manage backup and recovery solution for any Exadata environment. In this session Husnu Sensoy will describe some of the configuration possibilities of the ZFS Storage Appliance to create a flexible backup and recovery environment for Exadata, as well as various tuning do’s and dont’s to maximize your backup and recovery performance.

Join me to hear more about ZFS Storage Appliance and Exadata.

My Open World 2010 Session

Hi there,

You can find my joint Solidify RMAN Backup with Oracle Open Storage 7000 presentation with my esteemed friend Orhan Bıyıklıoglu held yesterday in Open World 2010.

Oracle Sweden User Group (ORCAN) Event

I have been in Sweden (in a japanese spa hotel near Stockholm City) between Monday and Wednesday to join ORCAN event. Thanks to Patrik Norlander and his friends, the event was really perfect. I had two presentations and joined presentations of other ACEs and experts.

I spent my time in talking with Dan Morgan on a possible Turkey Oracle User Group Event, with Jose Senegacnik on Oracle and planes, with Dimitri Gielis whether APEX 4.0 is sufficiently mature to grow large scale applicaitons, and finally with Luca Canali about recent Oracle Streams projects in CERN.

Thanks guys,

it was a perfect time for me
