    Martin Nash will present a 5-Minute presentation "Helping MOS to Help Me", which is about diagnosing the cause of an ORA-600 error and then working around the error until a patch is available/applied. Obviously it's not applicable to every ORA-600, but the approach to identifying the source of the problem is Martin feels is worth sharing.

When using Oracle Standard Edition and Standard Edition One, Data Guard is not available. Dbvisit can be used as an alternative to implement and managing standby databases to ensure complete protection for your primary database. This is a quick overview of the Dbvisit solution.

    1PM - 2PM Keynote Marc Fielding will be expanding on his "official" session last Monday. Naturally, he'll be talking about the aspects not for public consumption.

Learn the significant business and performance advantages of the integrated Oracle Database Machine/Oracle Exadata technology, including reduced costs, shorter deployment time, superior performance, increased functionality, and streamlined support. Experiences with hybrid columnar compression, integrating real-time data updates from multiple sources, performance tuning, and 24/7/365 high availability are discussed, with pitfalls to avoid and best practices.

    Marc Fielding is senior consultant with Pythian's Advanced Technology group, where he specializes in high availability, scalability, and performance tuning. He has worked with Oracle database products over the past nine years, from version 7.3 up to 11gR2.
