We, DBAs, have a tendency to over think everything. I don’t know if the trait to over think is just found in DBAs or if we see it in other technical positions, too.
I thought I’d do something on Oracle this week, but then Microsoft made an announcement that was like an early Christmas present- SQL Server release for Linux.
I’ll be attending my very first Pass Summit next week and I’m really psyched!
My sabbatical from speaking is about to end in another week and it will return with quite the big bang.
The topic of DevOps and and Agile are everywhere, but how often do you hear Source Control thrown into the mix? Not so much in public, but behind the closed doors of technical and development meetings when Agile is in place, it’s a common theme. When source control isn’t part of the combination, havoc ensues and a lot of DBAs working nights on production with broken hearts.
Along with the deep learning I’ve been allowed to do about data virtualization, I’ve learned a great deal about Test Data Management. Since doing so, I’ve started to do some informal surveys of the DBAs I run into and ask them, “How do you get data to your testers so that they can perform tests?” “How do you deliver code to different environments?”
Oracle Open World 2016 is almost here…where did the summer go??
I’ve been busy reading and testing everything I can with Delphix, whenever I get a chance. I’m incredibly fascinated by copy data management and the idea of doing this with Exadata is nothing new, as Oracle has it’s own version with sparse copy.
