More minds meet at Sangam 2015…

Diary on Sangam’15
21st, 22nd Nov 2015 at Hyderabad International Convention Centre, HITEC City, Hyderabad, India

In the recently concluded two day Oracle conference – Sangam 2015, there were more number of attendees than last year (Sangam 2014). Sangam – An annual conference for Oracle Technologist across India is organised by AIOUG (All India Oracle Users Group) and aptly has tagline of ‘meeting of minds…’.

It was a privilege to attend such a large scale event for third consecutive year. It was an honour to get in touch with the Oracle ACE and Oracle ACE Directors and hear them speak in front of august gathering. There were numerous sessions lined-up as always. I am sharing sessions attended by me during the two days conference in brief.

Day 1: 21st November 2015

Tim Hall – Oracle ACE Director (Day 1 | Day 2) – It was treat to hear him again and his session on Oracle 12c Consolidations and pros/cons was very relevant and updated.

Kamran Agayev – Oracle Certified Master – His session on “Oracle 12c ASM new features” with webetorial was very crisp and provided lot of insights into the world of Oracle 12c for ASM.

Aman Sharma – Oracle ACE – His session on “Oracle RAC Node Eviction” was overwhelming and demonstrated his expertise in the RAC yet again. It was very useful.

Anju Garg – her session on Oracle ACFS High Availability over NFS Service was enthralling and was studded with illustrations. It was good to know that ACFS now supports all types of files.

Day 2: 22nd November 2015

Oracle VM and Oracle Linux – Kamal Dodeja (Sales Consulting Manager) and Ritesh Kumar (Senior Technical Consultant) from Oracle India Pvt. Ltd. – Their session on Oracle Linux and Oracle VM was primarily revolving around the Technical features offered by Oracle Linux and Oracle VM and concluded with the pricing details.
I had previously blogged about installation of Oracle VM, Oracle Linux and Installation of Oracle 12c on Oracle Enterprise Linux which is available here.
One interesting takeaway from this session of theirs was ksplice – which actually provides high availability and reduces downtime. Overview, Downloads and Documentation on ksplice is available at OTN here. It was a strategic acquisition made by Oracle in 2011. This enables important kernel patches to be applied without reboot or without bringing down any application services in Oracle Linux.

Debaditya Chatterjee – Product Manager Oracle USA – Oracle Database In-Memory Options – It was a good review of Oracle In-Memory database which was delivered by Maria Colgan in the last edition of Sangam. His session focused on the what’s and why’s of Oracle In-Memory database.

Satyendra Pasalpudi – Oracle ACE Director – His session on “Oracle Cloud DBA” showcased the next thing from Oracle – Oracle Cloud. The session was mainly for DBAs.

The conference closed with a motivational speech by “Dr. Rajdeep Manwani” – who shared his priceless life experiences about hard-work, patience, perseverance, failure, success and imaginary finishing line in marathon when most of the contestant gives up.

Thanks to AIOUG and Oracle Technology Network (OTN) for organising such events and providing Oracle fraternity in India a splendid opportunity to hear the speakers from elite Oracle community 🙂
