Embarcadero Webinar: Oracle Database Performance & Licensing Dynamics in a Virtualized Environment


SAN FRANCISCO – Sept. 27, 2010 — On Thursday, September 30, join Embarcadero Technologies and DBA experts Kyle Hailey, Scott Walz and Dave Welch for a one-hour webinar and learn how to optimize database performance in a virtualized environment.
The benefits of virtualization are well known — less hardware costs, simplification of development and test configurations, and faster deployment, to name a few. But when it comes to virtualizing the IT infrastructure, the database is often the final hold out. Why?
Participate in this online roundtable and learn:
• How to deliver optimized database performance and availability at the lowest possible cost
• Best practices when evaluating and implementing VMware vSphere or Oracle VM
• What the manuals, whitepapers and salespeople aren’t telling you
• Oracle licensing dynamics and deltas within and across virtualization vendors
• How to prevent common performance issues like SCSI queue saturation

This free webinar is available at three times:
10 a.m. ET -
2 p.m. ET -
10 p.m. ET -
Every registrant will receive the best practices resource guide: Maximizing Oracle Database Performance in a Virtualized Environment written by Dave Welch, Scott Walz and Kyle Hailey.
