This week:

Thursday, 23-Aug-2007, 9 AM Pacific
*Oracle Database 11g: Simplifying Management of Oracle Database Files*
Presented by Oracle

Automatic Storage management (ASM) in Oracle Database 11g further automates database file management to reduce the management overhead for DBAs as well as system and storage administrators. We will discuss benefits of the new features in Oracle Database 11g ASM such as massive scalability and performance, fast mirror resynchronization for higher availability, enhanced extended cluster support, rolling upgrades and expanded ASMCMD line interface and more. We will introduce the new SYSASM privilege and how this allows for the separation of roles and responsibilities between system admins and DBAs. We will also discuss best practices in the life cycle of ASM management: preparation, deployment and operation.
