Oracle MAA Workshops

Recently Oracle ran two events focusing on Maximun Availability and Business Contiuity. The events, one in Melbourne on the 31st July 2008 and, one in Sydney on the 1st August 2008, attended by a total of 150 customers.

The customers were given a presentation on how the new release of Oracle 11g has made high availability, no longer the domain of the customers who have multi million dollar IT budgets, but can now be affordable by all. Then after the break there was another example of real life, with a DBA 'Bake off'. Called DBA1/DBA2 each live session was given two complex production problems to solve, each problem had to be solved in 4mins.

DBA1 used the common practices of SQL scripts and command line techniques, where as DBA2 used Oracles management framework to solve the problems. Guess who won!!!
