Enterprise ready Open Infrastructures

12th September 2018 in Basel

Open source software is the new standard for data centers and cloud infrastructures. Join us together with our partners RedHat, EnterpiseDB and Hidora to get an overview on what you can do with Docker, OpenShift, EnterpiseDB containers as well as in the Hidora cloud. In addition, you’ll learn what is new on PostgreSQL 11.

SESSIONS AND PRESENTATIONS (Language: mainly German)

Accelerate application delivery with OpenShift

Presented by

  • Peter Mumemthaler, RedHat (in german)

In this presentation you will get an introduction into the Container Solution OpenShift. Learn how Red Hat® OpenShift® helps teams deliver faster with containers and Kubernetes. Finally get a first impression of OpenShift with a short and simple demo on how your future application delivery could look like. 

Are you ready for the next level? EDB Containers in RedHat OpenShift

Presented by

  • Daniel Westermann, Delivery Manager and Senior Consultant at dbi services (in german)
  • Jan Karremans, EnterpriseDB (in german)
Docker and Kubernetes are everywhere and OpenShift is one of the major platforms for that. Combining these with EDB Containers will push your database infrastructure to a new level: Easy deployment, autoscaling, automatic failover, active directory integration and backup and recovery. We will start with a short introduction and will directly dive into the demo.

What is infrastructure as code and why should you adopt it?

Presented by

  • Matthieu Robin, Hidora (in english)
The infrastructure as code is an approach to IT infrastructure management in the cloud, microservices and continuous delivery. The basic idea is that you treat your IT infrastructure as a program, which you allows you to make changes quickly and easily and to be able to safely and reliably upgrade your infrastructure. Let’s dive in. 

What we already know about PostgreSQL 11

Presented by

  • Daniel Westermann, Delivery Manager and Senior Consultant at dbi services (in german)
PostgreSQL 10 is not even one year old and PostgreSQL 11 is just around the corner. This is a (very personal) selection of improvements and new features with some demos. There are improvements to partitioning, parallel query and much more.

Event Oracle SE Pack

By | Events | No Comments

Event Oracle SE Pack

6th/7th of June 2018

The Oracle Database Appliance ist well known as an Easy-to-Deploy Engineered system. Is this not fast enough? dbi services has developed the Oracle SE Pack for a professional, secure and ready-to-run Oracle infrastructure. With our event you will discover what the Oracle SE Pack can offer for optimizing both, implementation time and high availability. Join us for a convivial and technical event.

Format & language

Breakfast (07:45 – 10:00 a.m.)

  • Basel the 06.06.2018 – in German

Aperitif (10:45 a.m. – 14:00 p.m.)

  • Neuchatel the 07.06.2018 – in French

dbi Oracle SE Pack : Oracle Ready to Use !

Since more than 5 years the Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) is providing an all-in-one standardized platform to run and consolidate Oracle databases. The ODA is built in a way to provide an Easy to Deploy solution to quickly get Oracle environments running.
Based on several years of experience in successful ODA projects, dbi services wants to move one step forward, going from an “Easy to Deploy” to a “Ready to Use” platform. You are looking for a rapidly running Oracle Standard Edition 2 platform without investigating much time and effort in complicated concepts around standardization, optimization or even backup, then the dbi Oracle SE Pack is the right solution for you!
Using the combination of ODA, Oracle Database software, our dbi DMK Management Kit and the expertise of our experts, we propose you a whole pre-installed bundle providing up & running databases on top of which you can start deploying our application from day 1.
This session will present the latest ODA hardware generation as well as the different licenses and services you will get for a fix price thanks to the dbi Oracle SE Pack. Through a transparent and fair price, this package will allow you to strongly reduce the time to market.

dbi Oracle SE Pack : Get it high available !

Consolidating databases on an optimized and pre-configured platform is great. However, some environments may need to provide more by delivering high available services. Being on Oracle Standard Edition 2 shall not be a showstopper to improve your RPO and RTO while keeping the architecture simple. We will show you a demonstration using a real use case that shows how you can take benefit from Dbvisit Standby and significantly improve the availability of your environment through a simple extension of the Oracle SE Pack.

Event SQL Server 2017

By | Events | No Comments

Event SQL Server 2017

27.03.2018 in Lausanne / 05.04.2018 in Zurich / 12.04.2018 in Basel

SQL Server, Linux and open source … who would have thought that we could use those words one day together? Nowadays companies are expecting a large choice of solutions and Microsoft addresses it with SQL Server 2017 available both on Windows, Linux, MacOS and docker containers.

Thanks to the strong work done on the former versions, SQL Server 2017 allows to stay fast on an automatically and adaptive way whereas performance matters and scalability of workload requirements remain in the focus.

Last but not least, cloud and AI are becoming key drivers to innovation. BI features are constantly modernizing and provide a great experience to developers and data scientists, who can explore and analyze data efficiently with a new generation of tools for example including Python, Graph databases, PowerBI Server, or SSIS Scale-out.

This event will present you new key features which, we believe, will help you driving innovation and business value which may benefit to your applications.


SQL Server is opening to a whole new world – Open Source and Linux

Presented by

  • David Barbarin, Senior Consultant and Technology Leader at dbi services

Open source is now part of the Microsoft strategy. Indeed, you may run SQL Server either on a physical or on a virtual machine, and since recently on the top of Windows and Linux operating systems as well. At the same time, DevOps and Microservices technologies emerge and seem to become an industry standard for the upcoming years where containerization is part of the new approach. However, high availability remains a main concern. In this session we will show you how Microsoft and SQL Server are addressing all these topics in the new open source world.

Stay fast and tuned with SQL Server 2017

Presented by

  • Stéphane Haby, Delivery Manager and Senior Consultant at dbi services
Data management system or databases, are becoming increasingly critical elements of the information system. At the same time, these systems aim at satisfying performance expectations and address potential Quality-of-Service violations that heavily rely on performance predictability. Based on the strong work done on SQL Server 2016 as well as customer’s feedbacks, we will show you how SQL Server 2017 makes a step forward regarding the performance area by providing a new automatically and adaptively performance dimension through both Query Processing and Automatic Tuning capabilities in order to scale with the new workload requirements.

Efficiency and Modernism in BI: the SQL Server 2017 BI toolbox

Presented by

SQL Server 2017 evolves constantly and offers new capabilities. Among the new generation set of tools, we will present how to value your business by taking full advantage of Python for Data Scientist.

Executive Breakfast with dbi services & EDB

Executive Breakfast with dbi services & EDB

07.02.2018 in Basel – 07.03.2018 in Zurich

As the pace of digital transformation quickens, businesses are increasingly engaged in a race against time. As with any other seismic change in the marketplace, this one will create winners and losers. So the enterprise imperative is clear: harness new data and new tools to grow revenue and increase market share – before a competitor or new entrant gets there first. As a result, IT leaders find themselves backed into a corner. How do you balance the undeniable need for speedy development with longstanding concerns like data integrity, security, stability and scalability? And how do you solve today’s technology challenges without making compromises that will come back to haunt you? Open-source platforms offer a way forward. What potential do they have to solve both the short- and long-term issues? A new approach to open-source architecture – paired with a new philosophy – may help ease the dilemma. Postgres is the leading open source database management system that is being developed by a very active community for more than 15 years.

By using our last success stories, Daniel Westermann (dbi services), Arnaud Berbier (dbi services) and Jan Karremans (EDB), will be explaining why companies take open source as the centerpiece to modernize their IT infrastructure, thus increasing their scalability and taking full advantage of what today’s technologies can offer.
