Using Nutanix Era to manage your Oracle databases on AWS

ExaCC Oracle

There are very good reasons to move Oracle Databases from on-premises to Exadata [email protected] Besides the pros and cons of such a decision in terms of security, costs, or DevOps agility, there are of course technical considerations when moving non-container databases from Sparc Solaris to container databases on Exadata [email protected] platform. What are the possible approaches when migrating to the new platform? What are the tools Oracle offers to migrate with minimum downtime? How can we inform employees concerning new technical areas like Oracle Grid Infrastructure (RAC, ASM) or Multitenant databases?

IaC, expertise as code

In recent years, Infrastructure as Code (IaC) has developed strongly, mainly because of DevOps environments. This approach is very useful for provisioning environments in a fast, traceable and repeatable way and is also of advantage for the development of pipeline environments. But how can you also benefit from these tools in production environments? In this presentation we will look at the advantages and disadvantages of production environments with IaC and highlight deployments, regardless of the public Cloud provider.
