Oracle Database 12.2 Application Containers

Stream: DBA/CLOUD

The single most important new feature in Database 12.2 is the new Application Containers that come with the multitenant option. The container database architecture and multitenancy were introduced into the Oracle database in version 12.1 and the capabilities have been vastly expanded in release 12.2 combining brilliant new technology with a solid business case. This session by ACE Director Alumni Daniel Morgan will present both the concept and the reality with a demonstration, live in SQL*Plus, of the entire process, and all of the code, required to implement a container database with application containers.

Oracle INSERT Statements for DBAs and Developers

Stream: DBA

Everyone that has written SQL for more than a few weeks thinks they have mastered basic DML statements such as Insert, Update, and Delete: Unfortunately, this is not true. Most of the syntax elements available for these statements are not only unknown to developers, but are also unknown to DBAs with a decade or more of experience. This presentation will focus on optimizing DML performance and scalability by learning more about these capabilities. Using a laptop computer with a few GBs of RAM and a slow hard drive, it is possible to easily perform 500,000 inserts per second by taking advantage of documented DML techniques rarely used because they not well known. This presentation will expose the full range of available DML statements and how they can be used to optimize Oracle SQL.

Infrastructure as Code

Stream: CLOUD

Cloud, cloud, cloud, on-prem, off-prem, cloud, cloud, cloud. Most cloud discussions are just noise with long lists of acronyms and logos. Like pretty much everyone else I was confused looking for the value, if any, in the many cloud products. Infrastructure as Code is that value ... and it is valuebest realized within Oracle's Bare Metal Cloud. This presentation is not another tone-deaf discussion with a slide that says "DBAs are no longer necessary" but rather focuses on the real value of the Oracle Cloud to DBAs and how Infrastructure as Code can make as big a positive improvement in our lives as engineered systems like Exadata.
