Sponsored by Pure Storage - Database administrators (DBAs) are under intense pressure to improve the performance of their Oracle databases. Businesses are processing more data, more transactions and larger data sets, yet they also demand faster database performance with no latency. At the same time, many organizations are embracing database consolidation to reduce costs and improve efficiencies, while still expecting improved database performance. It’s a constant theme that is unlikely to change any time soon. In fact, with the growth of big data analytics and the Internet of Things, the pressure on DBAs will become even greater. See More
Sponsored by SolidFire - “Never run out of disk space” became the storage administrator’s prime directive because of the big difference between storage and the rest of an organization’s IT infrastructure.
