Confio Software To Host Live Webinar Debunking Oracle Database Virtualization Myths


Boulder, Colo., June 18, 2013Confio Software is hosting a free, live webinar featuring Indiana University’s (IU) successful experience moving more than 230 mission-critical Oracle databases to a virtualized infrastructure. Increasingly, IT managers and their database administrators (DBAs) are being asked to move databases from physical servers to virtual machines to take advantage of cost benefits of virtualization, but there are questions regarding the risks of placing valuable data assets within a virtual infrastructure.  This webinar will provide some answers to critical questions and debunk the myths associated with Oracle database virtualization.
During the webinar, which will take place on Thursday, June 20 at 1:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. GMT, attendees will hear from IU’s Manager of Enterprise Database Administration, Dan Young. Young will discuss IU’s arrival at a multi-year strategy that enabled it to successfully migrate all enterprise class, mission-critical systems to the virtual infrastructure in 2008. By overcoming database virtualization myths and taboos, IU realized a seven figure cost savings and experienced clear operational improvements, all while supporting the data needs of more than 120,000 students, faculty and staff.
“It’s impossible for DBAs to avoid the noise associated with migrating an Oracle database to a virtual infrastructure,” said Young. “Thankfully our organization was able to recognize the benefits early on of running hundreds of enterprise class databases on VMware, but not before we determined a number of the concerns to be merely myths.”
With over 17 years experience in multiple RDBMS technologies, Young specializes in running Oracle databases on VMware and is a frequent speaker at conferences such as IOUG, HEUG and VMWorld.
