Confio to Offer DBA Success Strategies for Moving Oracle Database to VMware in Live Webinar


Boulder, Colo., Sept. 19, 2012 – Confio Software will hold a free, live webinar event on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 2:00 p.m. ET, 6:00 p.m. UTC/GMT discussing tips and success strategies for database administrators (DBAs) moving their Oracle databases from physical machines to VMware. The webinar will be hosted by Senior DBA Dean Richards and VMware Database Specialist and Oracle Certified Master, Don Sullivan. Together Richards and Sullivan will discuss best practices for deployment on both standard and RAC systems, performance considerations, and dig into some of the finer implementation details.
Attendees will also receive answers to common questions associated with a physical to VMware database transition, including:

  • How do I configure Oracle for VMware? Is there a different configuration for RAC?
  • Since my databases are sharing physical resources with other VMs, how do it’s not impacting my database performance?
  • What is the impact of VMware vMotion dynamic changes on the Oracle instances?  

“The decision to move your Oracle database to VMware can offer many benefits, including improved performance and high availability,” said Richards. “However, concerns about losing visibility into their database or being able to control the physical resources supporting their database cause many DBAs to be wary of the move. We hope to dispel some of that wariness by providing tips, best practices and proven strategies to ensure your deployment is a success.”
