Session Title:

Virtualizing Oracle Across the World — Success Stories from University of Auckland and Indiana University

Session Abstract:

While VMware professionals can readily appreciate the benefits of database server virtualization, those benefits can remain obscure to database administrators (DBAs) trained in traditional physical infrastructures. Since avoiding risk is an important part of DBAs’ job, they may be skeptical of new technologies and somewhat resistant to change, which can stymie enterprise virtualization efforts.

Gaining buy-in from the DBA is therefore key to such efforts. But what is the best tack to take: Will technical facts be convincing? What language will best quell the DBA’s trepidation? In what ways does virtualization help the DBA?

For answers, join other VMware professionals in this session as we discuss how the Indiana University Database Administration team overcame uncertainty and doubt to enable the rapid virtualization of its enterprise-class Oracle database systems. Examine the ways VMware has created tangible, real-world improvements in the life of the DBA. Learn how VMware empowers database service delivery, and discover DBAs’ virtualization and support concerns. You’ll come away with the practical tips and hard facts needed to help you win over DBAs and complete the virtualization journey.
