? Best Practices for Oracle Automatic Storage Management and Hitachi Replication Software
November 28, Wednesday, 9:00 am PST

TECHNICAL SESSION: Many enterprise organizations leverage Oracle applications to conduct business and support critical operations. This data has become an asset to the business and protecting it from corruption or loss is key. Because leveraging replication functions on the storage array is the de facto standard in the enterprise and other segments, fully understanding the interaction between replication processes and the Oracle environment is necessary to guarantee effective data protection. In this webcast, Todd Hanson, Advanced Technical Consultant, will review Oracle database 10g automatic storage management best practices with Hitachi Replication Software on the Hitachi Universal Storage Platform? family of products. The session will include Oracle and Hitachi Data Systems command line commands, how Oracle disk groups need to be configured to support replication, and suggestions for tuning performance.

December 5, Wednesday, 9:00 am PST


TECHNICAL: IT Tier One application service-level agreements (SLA) require that there are no single points of failure within the IT infrastructure. One important and often overlooked strategy to help accomplish this is to enable application server hosts to boot from the storage area network (SAN). Hitachi Data Systems storage consultant and architect, Catherine Anderson, will describe how to accomplish SAN boot with Hitachi Global Link Availability Manager and Dynamic Link Manager.
