Oracle Performance Tuning
Jeff Lippe, Master Solution Architect, Jeff Lippe & Associates

Jeff will discuss the most common performance issues in UNIX / Oracle environments that he has seen over the past year.  Topics include: ccNUMA considerations, virtualization characteristics, 10g parameters, IO access methods and SGA memory allocation.

Jeff spent 24 years at HP with the last 20 years focused solely on performance analysis and tuning.  He retired from HP in 2007 and continues to provide the same services to UNIX and Oracle environments.  He typically reviews over 100 environments a year, and after 20 years he has conducted over 2,000 assessments of UNIX / Oracle environments.

Scalable Oracle Database Platform

Leveraging InfiniBand to Build a Powerful, Scalable Oracle Database Platform
Brian E. Dougherty, Chief Data Warehouse Architect

Large organizations have invested tens of millions of dollars in complex IT infrastructure to manage exploding data volumes.  The information age is bringing the challenge of large, distributed data to small and medium sized companies as well.  These organizations need a new generation of technology that delivers powerful transaction management and analytical capability with reduced cost and complexity.  CMA has developed a sophisticated solution to address this growing need, implementing a high performance Oracle RAC environment that leverages a unified InfiniBand fabric to supports both interconnect and i/o traffic.  As a packaged, fully configured solution, the MicroTerabyte platform reduces integration risk, accelerates project delivery, and is scalable to meet current and future data management needs.  This brief presentation will summarize the unique capabilities of this solution, specifically highlighting the benefits provided by the unified InfiniBand fabric.

Brian Dougherty is a Senior Database and Data Warehouse Technical Architect with more than 17 years experience in the design, development, and implementation of large UNIX and IBM mainframe information systems with emphasis on Relational Database Technology (Oracle and DB2) and Data Warehouse Architectures. His specific areas of expertise include Data Warehouse Architecture, Objects and Relational Databases, Physical Database Design and Tuning, and Database Administration. His experience includes work with Fortune 500 companies including General Electric and American Express as well as state and local government.
Mr. Dougherty has been the lead architect for numerous award winning Data Warehouses. He was lead architect for the 1999 Data Warehouse Institute's Best Practices Award Winner in the Very Large Warehouse Category (VLDB). His architecture and designs have also been nominated for the Computerworld Smithsonian Award and have become part of the Permanent Research Collection on Information Technology at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.
