Bullet Proof Your Data Guard 12.2c/18c/19c On-Premise and to the Cloud

3:00 AM – 4:00 AM CST

Learn how you can setup Data Guard with all the best practices. Attendees will get a brief history of Data Guard and how it became Data Guard. Then we will dive directly into new features in Oracle Data Guard 12c Release 2/18c/19c. In addition to demonstrating how simple it is to setup Data Guard, this session will disseminate fundamental Data Guard best practices and reference architectures that DBAs need to know to protect their Oracle ecosystem. The author of the Oracle Data Guard Handbook will demonstrate how DBAs should setup, configure, and monitor mission critical Data Guard environments (including Active Data Guard).

Part 2: Best 18c New Features: A Painless Transition

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM CST

This webinar will focus on some of the best 18c new features that should be investigated for use for tuning, applications, and administration. Some of you may only be on 12c (or just moving there). Some of you may be on 12cR2 or 18c already, but haven’t had the time to investigate or implement some of the great features. This session is for you!

The features we’ll cover for 18c are not only central for effective database administration tasks; they’re also the key to helping application developers write better code to leverage built-in efficiencies that 18c provides. In this session, we’ll offer simple examples, such as how to leverage the new PDB Snapshot Carousel, to show the basic functionality of the new features.

We’ll also look ahead at some of the more compelling features of 19c so you’ll be ready to implement them when it’s time to upgrade to that release. Finally, we’ll review lessons we’ve learned when upgrading databases to 18c while simultaneously mitigating the risk of degraded database and application performance after the upgrade is completed.

Some of the key features we’ll cover for 18c will include:

Working with the SGA, SQL*Plus History, and changes to Object Name Sizing
Multiple indexes on the same Colum
PDB Snapshot Carousel
Real Time PDB Switchove
New Split/Merge Partition Online enhancement
In-Memory External Tables for Big Data
Security Enhancements
19c New Features to look forward to and the future ahead

One Less Thing For DBAs to Worry About: Automatic Indexing

8:00 PM – 9:00 PM CST

You’re a busy Oracle DBA. Your phone rings. It’s your most troublesome user, once again complaining that her query is running slow. You take a quick look at the execution plan, find a possible choice for a new index to improve its performance, and drop it in place: Problem solved.

Or is it? Even an experienced DBA may not immediately realize the impact that new index will have on the performance of dozens of other queries and DML statements.

Finally, there’s a better way: Let the database decide.

This session will show how Automatic Indexing (AI) – one of the newest features of Oracle Database 19c – provides an intriguing alternative to reactive performance tuning methodologies for index creation.

We’ll look at how AIC reacts to a heavy hybrid application workload and then holistically builds, tests, and implements the most appropriate secondary indexes needed to improve database performance.

Part 3: You’re At 18, Going to 19: Standing Pat on Oracle Database 19c in 2020 and Beyond

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM CST

You’re an overwhelmed Oracle DBA, and your organization’s Oracle databases are still moored to Oracle release 12.1.0.2—or even worse, 11.2.0.4—but you can see the writing on the wall: It’s time to upgrade, and soon. Or perhaps you’ve just completed a rather painful upgrade process to 12cR2 or 18c, and after getting your database back to merely performant again, you can’t even think about the next release without a lump in your throat or butterflies in your stomach.

This webinar is the third in a series focused on getting your Oracle environment ready to take advantage of the appropriate database release; it will focus on some excellent reasons to overcome those trepidations: the immense benefits that Oracle Database 19provides, including new multitenant licensing, numerous performance improvements, simpler-than-ever automatic upgrades, and the first steps towards the truly converged database.

This session is designed to help Oracle DBAs, regardless of their level of expertise, to migrate quickly, efficiently, and nearly painlessly to Oracle 19c so they can take immediate advantage of its latest features.
