Upcoming, my first SIG talk
Posted by John Hallas on December 16, 2009
I am making my first presentation to a SIG meeting in January when I talk about how my company has moved from a site where Oracle was almost non-existent less than two years ago to one that is now delivering what seems to be every product that Oracle has invented (or purchased). It won’t be a ‘how great we are’ approach but rather how making some simple but fundamental decisions have made it much easier to build and support a large and growing infrastructure.
I will be talking about having a set of standards that are very simple but are a fundamental building block in our aim of having the same look and feel across the estate and how a small number of setup scripts can make life so much easier.
I will probably diverge from the straight and narrow and discuss our experiences of running a centralised OEM solution and given we currently have 7 open SRs raised referencing Grid problems I haved an inkling of which way it may be slanted. However I hope that by the time of the talk I can be much more positive because there is lot to be said for OEM.
The date is 21st January 2010 in London and an abstract can be seen in the Unix SIG agenda
I hope to see some of you there
