Overview of Oracle’s Engineered Systems – Oracle ACEs 

Oracle Database 12c Release 2 (Oracle 12.2/18c/19c) is the fastest state-of-the-art revolutionary database in the world.  Companies can significantly see immediate ROI by upgrading to Oracle Database 12.2/18c/19c.  Oracle customers need to upgrade to Oracle Database 12.2/18c/19c and unlock the full potential of the new database features and transform their IT infrastructure. 


Everything You Know is Wrong:  DBA Intuition, Meet Hard-Core Metrics – Jim Czuprynski, Oracle ACE Director

Handling application performance degradation – especially when an RDBMS as complex as Oracle Database 12c Release 2 (12.2, 18c, 19c)  underlies the application – can be a complex, time-consuming, frustrating task. Via actual use cases, stories of painful discoveries, and of course some hard-core metrics, this session will take a look at some of the simplest mistakes even an Oracle DBA can make when probing application performance issues and how to overcome one’s own blind spots when searching for the true root causes of that degradation.

This session will:

– Look at some typical use cases that we’ve encountered in the past two decades as an Oracle DBA

– Discuss what Oracle DBAs need to know to successfully analyze and recover from unexpected application performance degradation

– Lay out some particularly useful tools built into Oracle 12.2/18c/19c for overcoming one’s own intuition when problem-solving under pressure

This session will look at some typical use cases that we’ve encountered in the past two decades as an Oracle DBA; as well as:

  • Discuss what Oracle DBAs need to know to successfully analyze and recover from unexpected application performance degradation
  • Lay out some particularly useful tools built into Oracle 12.2/18c/19c for overcoming one’s own intuition when problem-solving under pressure

Bulletproof your Data Guard Configuration – Charles Kim Oracle ACE Director

Learn the pitfalls to common Data Guard configuration issues. Not only will we review the common Data Guard configuration issues that most of the customers face, we will provide tips and tricks to avoid the situation. More importantly, we will share our industry expertise to show you how to  resolve the issues.  We will also demonstrate how you can proactively monitor and maintain your Data Guard configuration so avoid disasters, tune the transport layer, and minimize out-of-sync conditions.


We will disseminate Data Guard best practices and reference architectures that DBAs and architects need to know to protect their Oracle ecosystem. Pertinent Oracle Database 12.2/18c/19c new features will be shared.  The session concentrates on:

  • Building the physical standby
  • Monitoring and maintaining the physical standby
  • Configuring Data Guard Broker
  • Performing backup and recovery with RMAN
  • Setting archive retention
