Open Infrastructure Day

13.09.17 in Basel

Are you ready to open your infrastructure? Open Source technologies get adapted rapidly nowadays, not only on the operating system level, but also at the deployment, monitoring, validation, virtualization and data management levels. Enterprises refuse more and more to be dependent on proprietary products and this is not only a matter of costs. Adaptations need to be implemented rapidly in today’s infrastructures. “Change” is the only constant and changes are coming faster and faster. We believe that you can only ride that horse and be prepared for the future by adapting open standards and open products.

This event will present you some selected open source products and best practices you will be able to discover through two simultaneous streams.

  Stream 1 Stream 2




GLOBAL (Stream 1+2): dbi services and its commitment in the open source area David Hueber / Hervé Schweitzer ¦ in German

Stream 2

dbi DBaaS with Openstack

Flexibility becomes a daily challenge! Application owners, developers or project members need more and more regularly and on-demand databases provisioning. Cloud architectures are a great solution in such cases. Using OpenStack to build up a cloud is a fantastic alternative to build on. Unfortunately it does not come with an “out-of-the-box” DBaaS solution. Building a DBaaS for OpenStack is just a matter of combining the right tools for the given requirements. In this session, we will present the tools we use to build up the dbi DBaaS, our service to easily provision instances and databases.

Scaling MariaDB with Galera Cluster and Docker

What if you could vertically scale a MariaDB Galera cluster staring up some more Docker containers with just single click? Either your workload increases or you hired additional developers which require more resources on the development cluster? By combining MariaDB, Galera Cluster and Docker in an easy to manage way you can adapt to changing workloads easily. Come in and attend the demo.

The elephant in the enterprise - Best practices

PostgreSQL gains more and more attraction in the database market. Companies with workloads of all sizes (small, medium, large and very large) either consider moving to PostgreSQL or did it already. Being a pure community project PostgreSQL attracts many companies because they can deploy it where ever they want without worrying about license costs. In this session we’ll look at the features that make PostgreSQL the ideal choice for enterprises of any size, no matter if it is about data in the gigabyte or terrabyte range. Applying the right best practices right from the beginning will give you freedom tomorrow.

Monitor and analyze your infrastructure with the Elastic stack

Analyzing log files of a single server or database does not give you the overall picture of what is going on in your infrastructure. But how can you tell then where the issue really is or even better how can you avoid issues before they happen? Using the Elastic Stack you can aggregate all your log files into one common location and then build dashboards which graphically present potential bottle necks, issues and trends. By defining alerts which fire on anomalies or specific log events you can save yourself a lot of work in troubeshooting. Sounds interesting?

Automate, control and validate your infrastructure with Ansible

Do you know how many servers (physical,virtual or even in the cloud) your infrastructure consists of? How do you control them and how do you make sure that all servers and the software running on top of them are in exactly the state they should be? Are you aware if someone changed something on one of the servers? Say welcome to Ansible. Ansible is a agent less “automation for everyone” solution based on ssh and Python which gives you back control over your infrastructure. No matter if you want to deploy applications on several servers in exactly the same way or if you want to validate your infrastructure against your requirements. Ansible is there to assist you and by joining this session you’ll learn about Ansible’s architecture, use cases and best practices.

An introduction to Big Data

Everybody is talking about Big Data these days and you wonder what this really is all about? What are the use cases for Big Data and what tools are around which can work with massive amounts of data? This session will introduce you into the world of the bits and bytes that want to get analyzed and correlated. After joining this session you should have a much clearer picture on what Big Data is and where it makes sense to use it.

Great Place to Work

dbi services ranks in 7th place among Swiss companies “where it’s great to work” in the category “20-49 employees”

Gregory Steulet (CFO) and Magali Blenner (HR manager)

Among the companies which took part in the Great Place to Work survey, dbi services gets a score of 91%, higher than the Swiss average of 88% for small companies and the Swiss average for all companies regardless of size, which is 86%.

Delémont, 10.05.2017 – Software company dbi services has been named 7th best company “where it’s great to work” in Switzerland in the category with 20-49 employees. Among the companies which took part in the Great Place to Work survey, dbi services gets a score of 91%, higher than the Swiss average for small companies (88%) and the Swiss average for all companies regardless of size (86%). The prizes were awarded at the end of a poll of 15,000 employees in Swiss companies which took part in the survey.

Last year, HR managers at dbi services decided to take part in the Great Place to Work programme. They explain that behind the challenge there is, above all, a desire to improve – they are aware that there are still some areas the company could do better in.

“Every year, dbi services asks its employees to take certification tests in order to maintain and improve their levels of knowledge. We can only justify having these expectations of our employees if dbi services itself is able to respond to similar expectations. Through the opinions of our employees, Great Place to Work provides confirmation of the excellence of the company they work in, which is seeking constantly to improve”, says Grégory Steulet, Chief Financial Officer of dbi services.


For Great Place to Work, trust is the main indicator

According to Great Place to Work, the most telling sign that employees feel good in the company they work for is their level of trust in their employers. The greater the trust, the more the company will be able to improve its results, because cooperation and innovation depend on it. This applies to any company, regardless of culture, industry, size, or age of employees. To gauge the level of trust employees feel for their employer, they are asked questions about credibility (internal communication, skills, integrity), respect (support, cooperation) and equality (equity, impartiality, fairness) in the company. Employees’ pride in their job and camaraderie in the company are two more indicators in the general ranking.


All-pervading values which drive the company forward

“dbi services was set up 7 years ago with 9 members of staff. During the company’s first few months of existence, we had to deal with challenges on a daily basis. This created not only a real team spirit, but also really motivated and brought our employees together. This is how our company values were born, and they have stayed with us through the years at dbi services”, says Magali Blenner, HR manager at dbi services.

“Company values are hardwired into our DNA, and are what has given dbi services the reputation it enjoys today. They play a part in our employees’ satisfaction, make potential employees passionate about joining us, and sustain the trust that our customers have in us year after year. These values form part of a sustainable development policy that enables dbi services to look forward to a future which looks extremely bright”, states Grégory Steulet, Chief Financial Officer of dbi services.


Nurturing a spirit of camaraderie

Ever since dbi services was set up, its managers have given special consideration to the atmosphere among its employees.

“Promoting a spirit of camaraderie and conviviality is essential for motivating employees. This is something we want to keep in place and nurture at all costs”. So says Magali Blenner, HR manager at dbi services.

Each year dbi services organises a number of events, among them the Summer and Winter Events, which employees and their families are invited to attend. In addition to these, dbi services xChange in-house events take place twice a year. Their purpose is to enable experts in dbi services to share their work and knowledge with colleagues and spend enjoyable time with them.


Preparing for the future

With a view to meeting employee expectations better still, and continuing to be a company “where it’s great to work”, dbi services set up some working groups once survey results were known. The focus will be on internal communication through the implementation of specific tools, being socially and environmentally responsible and, ultimately, thinking about employees who work from home. This will be a real challenge for the company, given that keeping the team spirit alive must remain one of its driving forces.

At the end of 2017, dbi services wishes to take part in Great Place to Work again. The company delights in the fact that this time round, due to its constant growth, it will be competing in the category with 50 – 249 employees.

Press release – May 2017

By | dbi services in the press, Media releases & news | No Comments

dbi services announces a record year in 2016, the company restructures with David Hueber as new CEO, and Yann Neuhaus as Chairman of the Board and head of the sales team.

From the left to the right: Yann Neuhaus and David Hueber

2016 was a record year for dbi services, with an increase in turnover of more than 33%. The start-up company confirms its strong foothold among major IT stakeholders in Switzerland. It is adjusting its structure to prepare for the future and set its sights beyond national borders even more strongly.

Delémont, 28/04/2017. In a rapidly-changing market, you have to ask yourself the right questions and build a long-term strategy to anticipate future challenges. dbi offers services based on innovative solutions thanks to the cutting-edge skills of its expert team. These kinds of skills are acquired, built up and kept in place through experience, but equally through company commitment. One of the challenges for dbi services is to recognise trends in technology early enough to allow its experts to keep pace constantly with market expectations. Increasing its visibility is another challenge that dbi services likewise wishes to take on, through more personalised representation and more finely tuned sales activity. Company strategy and sales must be considered as two tasks and functions – Chairman of the Board and Chief Sales Officer – that current dbi services CEO Yann Neuhaus has decided to see through.

“The management of dbi services has thought long and hard about this decision. To tell the truth, we have been preparing for 2 years now. We have just been waiting for dbi services to reach sufficient maturity. Now, this restructuring makes perfect sense. I’m really enthusiastic about taking on the new responsibilities I have been entrusted with, because the future of dbi services is something I really care about”, says Yann Neuhaus.

Current Chief Operations Officer (COO) David Hueber will take over as Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Energetic, skilled and good at listening to colleagues, he will be able to hold course just as well as his predecessor.

“His technical expertise, his interpersonal skills, his great ability to explain things simply, and his natural leadership will make him a superb CEO”, says Yann Neuhaus.

As far as figures go, 2016 was a highly successful year for dbi services. Its gross turnover came in at 8.44 million Swiss francs, an increase of 33% on 2015 figures. This growth is principally due to development of facilities management contract sales (+35%) and consultancy services (+29%).

Staff numbers are following suit, with 51 members in the dbi services team at the close of 2016 and plans for further expansion in the first quarter of 2017. This general expansion is partly explained by strong development of the Zurich branch, which has been able to carve itself a place in a very competitive market. And in addition, new partnerships with OpenText eDOCS, Cloudera and Attunity have boosted the services offered by the software company.

“We are offering more cutting-edge services now than ever before. Whether responding to requirements for document management systems, Big Data and Business Intelligence platforms, or simply data access, we offer our customers solutions by having qualified experts who can put them in place.” So says David Hueber, new CEO of dbi services.

Der GI Administrator hat meine Daten geklaut? Wie das?

In der heutigen Oracle Landschaft werden die Grid Infrastructure Installation immer breiter. Cluster mit mehr als 8 Knoten sind keine Seltenheit mehr und immer öfter gibt es auch noch mehrere von diesen, z.B. wenn mehr als eine Exadata zum Einsatz kommt. Wenn allerdings die Installationsbasis steigt, dann steigt auch zwangsweise die Anzahl der Benutzer. Seien es Administratoren, Anwender im Fall von ACFS oder Applikationen, die auf Services zugreifen. Wissen Sie wer was darf, wer wo zugreift, ob ihre Daten verschlüsselt sind und wenn ja: sind es die schützenswerten? Nein? Dann lassen Sie sich überraschen welche Mechanismen Sie heute einsetzen können um eine Grid Infrastucture sicher zu betreiben und vor allem was passieren kann wenn Sie sich darüber keine Gedanken machen.

Multitenant New Security Features Clarify DevOps/DBA roles

The CDB/PDB paradigm enforces role segregation between the container DBA and the application DBA. In DevOps environment, you need the finer access privilege definition that comes in 12.1 (common/local users) and in 12.2 (lockdown profiles, PDB isolation).Can we administrate a Cloud or on-premises database and give PDB administration rights to application teams for their application? And clearly define roles between system DBA and application DBA? The new features and best practices.

Monitoring von WebLogic 12C Domain mit RESTfull Interface

Eine der neuen Leistungsmerkmale in WebLogic 12C ist das RESTfull Interface, das es ermöglicht, die WebLogic ManagedBeans direkt über HTTP/S Requests abzufragen. WebLogic RESTfull Management Services gewährleisten ein umfassendes Interface für die Konfiguration, das Monitoring, die Implementierung von Applikationen und die Verwaltung des WebLogic Servers in allen unterstützten Umgebungen. Z.B kann der Server Status leicht über eine einfache URL überprüft werden und mit einem Monitoring Programm wie Nagios entsprechend verbunden werden. Zusätzliche Ressourcen (WLST Script oder JMX Java-Anwendungen) sind nicht erforderlich. RESTfull Modules sind auf dem WebLogic Domain Administration Server installiert.

In-Memory-Pläne für den 12.2-Optimizer: Teuer oder billig?

Mit In-Memory bekommt der Oracle Optimizer neue Plan-Alternativen. Wie werden diese im Vergleich zu “normalen” Plänen gewichtet? Was kosten z. B. fünf In-Memory-Zugriffe im Vergleich zu fünf logischen IOs im Buffer Cache? Tendiert der Optimizer eher zu In-Memory-Plänen oder haben traditionelle Full-Table-Scans noch eine Chance? Dieser Vortrag beschäftigt sich auch mit den Optimizer-Erweiterungen für In-Memory in 12.2.

Databases Clone Using ACFS

Test- oder Entwicklungs-Datenbanken neu zu erstellen, ist für DBAs fast schon zur täglichen Aufgabe geworden. Leider erfüllt die traditionelle DUPLICATE-Methode nicht mehr die heutigen Anforderungen, mit denen wir durch Datenmenge, Dauer und Flexibilität konfrontiert sind. File Systeme wie ACFS haben „Commit-On-Write“ Technologien für die Snapshot-Erstellung eingeführt, die das Paradigma der Datenbank-Bereitstellung und des DB-Klonens ändern. In diesem Vortrag wird präsentiert, wie die ACFS-Snapshot-Technologie es ermöglicht, einfach und schnell neue Kopien von Produktionsdatenbanken zu erzeugen.

Oracle Grid Infrastructure - SCHULUNGSTAG -

Mit der Grid Infrastructure bietet Oracle eine Cluster-Lösung mit der sich ziemlich alle Produkte hochverfügbar betreiben lassen. Gleichzeitig sind Cluster-Lösungen, egal von welchem Hersteller, jedoch Produkte, die nur dann verlässlich arbeiten wenn die darunter liegen Schichten richtig vorbereitet, konfiguriert und überwacht sind. Das betrifft nicht nur die Grid Infrastructure an sich sondern auch das Betriebssystem, die Kernel Parameter, die Anbindung der Speicherkomponenten und die optimale Konfiguration des Netzwerks. Erschwerend kommt hinzu, dass in einer Cluster Umgebung auch alle beteiligten Fachbereiche effizient zusammenarbeiten müssen; und je nach Betriebs-Organisation können das einige sein.
Zwei Oracle Grid Infrastructure Experten von dbi services werden im Rahmen des Schulungstages ihr Wissen, ihre Methoden, ihre Tools und die dbi Best Practices mit Ihnen teilen.
Zahlreiche Live Demos vermitteln Ihnen eingehendes Verständnis für die Arbeitsweise und den Anforderungen der Oracle Grid Infrastructure und Sie lernen, wie Sie das Beste aus Ihrer Umgebung herausholen können.

Zielgruppe: Datenbank-Administratoren, System-Administratoren, Storage Administratoren
Level: mittel
Vorkenntnisse erforderlich: Vorkenntnisse in Linux erforderlich

Event “Journées SQL Server 2015″

Our SQL Server team attended this year again the event SQL Server Days for its 5th edition, the JSS 2015, which took place on 30th November and 1st December 2015 at the Microsoft Conference Centre in Issy-les-Moulineaux, near Paris.

This free event is the largest conference for professional users of Microsoft’s data platform in France. Over two days, 50 speakers led 40 different sessions to large audiences. Our SQL Server experts; Stéphane Haby, Nathan Courtine and David Barbarin, ran two of the sessions: “What’s new in SQL 2016: Security, Temporal & Stretch Tables” and “In-Memory 2016: Operational Analytics”, both of which were highly successful.

dbi services’ presence at JSS 2015 also featured a stand, where our three consultants made sure visitors were kept happy by handing out technical information and chocolate Santas, for a pre-Christmas treat.

DOAG Conference & Exhibition 2015

dbi services attended one of the major international Oracle trade fairs, DOAG in Nuremberg (Germany). With its ever-popular stand, the dbi services team gave technical presentations and training courses from 16th to 20th November 2015. Nearly 2,100 people took part in the event, with 450 technical presentations and 11 one-day training courses held.

dbi services took the opportunity of this unmissable show for German Oracle product users and enthusiasts to meet them both at its stand and at the eight conferences held by its experts:

  • Oracle12c result cache: the good, the bad and the ugly cases
  • Oracle GoldenGate configuration protected in the DR environment
  • Automated RAC Setup with Cobbler and Virtual Box
  • Oracle over Docker
  • Application Continuity
  • All about locks: DML, DDL, foreign key, online operations
  • Data Recovery Advisor in Details
  • Oracle WebLogic Monitoring with SNMP/WLDF

Many people attended the sessions, seeking further information from our advisors on the dbi services stand. Our stand aroused a lot of interest – not least through the prize draw, with five winners of “swiss-made” prizes, and handing out 250 chocolate Santas. DOAG 2015 ended with its traditional day of training courses – Schulungstag – including the course “Oracle Database Performance Tuning – how does it work?” given by our two experts, Hervé Schweitzer and Nicolas Jardot, which was a big hit. Look forward to seeing you at our stand in 2016!
