How does database security change when you move to the Cloud?  Security does change and how to handle database security needs to change when running databases in the Cloud.  However, you still own your data and are still responsible for making sure that data is secure.  This session will first discuss the security differences for Oracle Databases between IaaS, PaaS, DBaaS, and on-premise. Advantages like enhanced database security features and disadvantages such limited infrastructure visibility are reviewed as they are present in all Cloud deployments.  Seven key components of an effective Cloud database security program are presented including how to effectively manage privileged, protect sensitive data, and monitor database activity.

Database In-Memory is targeted at speeding up analytic queries by orders of magnitude over traditional row-based queries. Join Oracle Product Management in a journey that will take you through the architecture and features of Database In-Memory. Learn how to get started with Database In-Memory, how to identify which objects to populate in memory, how to identify which indexes to drop, and details on how to integrate it with other performance-enhancing features of Oracle Database. This session will also show you how Database In-Memory speeds up your analytic workload and will provide tips on how to configure Oracle Database to get the biggest performance benefits. This session will not cover what Database In-Memory is, but will instead tell you how it works and what to do to implement it.

Cloud is transforming the enterprise and the career path of the DBA. See how. As cloud gains momentum and migrations of applications and databases become more common, the question is often asked: "Does Cloud mean the end of the DBA?" Cloud is likely not the end of the DBA, but instead an agent in unprecedented change. This webcast will cover how Cloud is bringing about that evolution and what today's DBAs must know to be successful in a Cloud-enabled future.

The future is here, let's take advantage of it today!

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for Oracle continues to be a popular choice for “lifting and shifting” mission-critical Oracle database workloads to the cloud. In this session, you learn how you can scale compute, storage, and databases to address changing database workload patterns and increasing business demands for cost optimization. We also cover best practices for new high availability, security, and disaster recovery features.

Amazon RDS Oracle Database service and Oracle Autonomous Database are DBaaS. They have similarities and differences. Come to this session to understand the features and contrasts of both services – not an attempt to show one is better than the other. Both have their use cases and advantages. Having a deep understanding of the capabilities and limitations will help you to understand the best and suitable service for your application.

Powerful Machine Learning (ML) is now available to Oracle DBAs. Over the past few years, a number of changes have occurred making this possible. As Oracle DBAs, it is now our turn to leverage ML, enabling us to do things never before possible.

But there is a lot to learn. Everything from methodology to math to tools. And then the nagging question of, are there real machine learning use cases for the Oracle DBA?

In this presentation, I'm going to introduce you to the world of ML from a DBA perspective! This includes understanding what ML is, why use it, and why now. The ah-ha moment will occur when you realize many of our monitoring, alerting, diagnosis, and analysis skills are significantly enhanced with ML.

I will demonstrate a simple yet complete ML project using Python and the "Always Free" Oracle Autonomous Database with Oracle ML SQL Notebooks. All presentation slides, scripts, and a recording of the demonstration are available!

Containers have been embraced by the developer community, but acceptance and adoption by DBAs is more... tepid. That's understandable--why would anyone want a database that's stateless and immutable?! I started using Docker under duress and had no idea what I was doing. Since then, I've learned that Docker elegantly addresses many situations faced by DBAs, including:
- Rapidly provisioning test and development environments
- Interacting with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure databases (including ATP and ADW)
- Preparing environments for performance testing
- Building Gold images
- Exploring new technologies and features
- Discovering and confirming bugs
- Preparing for certification exams

This session is a crash course in Docker covering the terminology, concepts, skills, and practical examples needed to begin using containers to support databases.

Oracle Database and Oracle Enterprise Manager continuously introduce new and interesting features that help improve DBA productivity and maximize performance while reducing management costs. This session covers the theory behind performance diagnosis and tuning and the new capabilities in Oracle Database and Oracle Enterprise Manager, such as Performance Hub, Automatic Workload Repository, multitenant enhancements, and many others. This session provides practical recommendations and real-world best practices on when and how to best use which feature, helping DBAs with day-to-day tasks.
