Meeting up with several Oracle ACE’s and ACE Directors, Dan Koloski (Oracle) introduces us to several EM12c ‘Heroes’ that give us their opinion on EM12c.
Kellyn Pot’Vin, Bobby Curtis, Leighton Nelson, Alex Gorbachev and Ray Smith give their experiences with EM12c. Matured product, managed to get all things ‘Green’, Much more than just another Database monitoring tool, Implemented complete self Service Portal….
After this short panel discussion and the introduction of some Customer stories like IDEXX “Being able to reduce 90% in time to find the root cause of problems with EM12c” and 7-Eleven “Going mobile using PaaS with EM12C”, Dan gives us some insight in the EM12c development “Heartbeat”….
In a 4-5-4 month cycle, EM12c release get a bit predictable. Having had release 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 just some weeks ago, 126.96.36.199 might be expected spring 2014, including several new features.
- Some of the new features we might expect in coming new releases include:
- Pluggable Databases as a Service
- Zero downtime Database Upgrade (using DG)
- Nimbula for IaaS
- Oracle Service Bus as a Service
- JVM Diagnostics as a Service
- Identity Management and Siebel patching
- TaaS support for functional testing
An impressive list …
Next Madhup Gulati (Principle Product Manager at Oracle), shows us some new features to be expected like the migration feature that allows you to migrate from Non-Container to Container Based Database using EM12c.
A truly interesting and well-prepared format, good job Dan.
Maybe next year add one or two EM12c enthusiastic Oracle ACE’s from Europe, at least I know of one….
