On November 5th and 6th, I attended to Oracle Database 12c Partner Roadshow in Istanbul. During this 2-day partner-only (and free) briefing, François Pons from Oracle Server Technologies, gave detailed technical information about new features of Oracle 12c to Oracle partners in Turkey. Although it was not a workshop, Mr. Pons provided live demos and gave detailed answers to all questions. I can say that, all attendees were very pleased.
The training started with the Oracle Multitenant architecture. As I remember, Heat Map, Automatic Data Optimization, Partitioning Enhancements, Temporal Validity, new ASM Functionality (Flex ASM, Flex Clusters etc), new RAC Functionality, Application Continuity and Optimizer Enhancements are mentioned in great detail. Presentation were very well prepared and live demos strengthen the content. I’m specially happy to hear more about new ASM functionality and Application Continuity.
There will be another event for Oracle partners in Istanbul on November 14th-15th. It’ll be a 2-day workshop on “Architecting Oracle Private Database Cloud & Delivering Database-As-A-Service (DBaaS)”. The workshop’s main focus is service delivery and how to transform current IT infrastructure to a service delivery mode. Of course, Enterprise Manager Cloud Control and Engineered Systems will be the stars of the show!
