OTNYathra2017 @Mumbai


I have provided enough information about the OTN Yathra, In my previous artical “about-otnyatha”

In this artical I have decided to sharing my experiences about the sessions which i have been attended.

I have choose the Mumbai location because it is near to Ahmedabad.

I had attended below sessions at OTN Yathra 2017 @Mumbai organized by AIOUG / OUAG

This session was mainly focus on Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Services offering and options by Oracle.

2.)   “Oracle and Docker – Everything you want to know to run your workload in docker container” by Umesh Tanna

I was really impress by Umesh, the way he is explaining the docker and oracle offering was quite good.

3.)  Oracle GoldenGate – IRCTC by Veeratteshwaran

This session has change my perception about the replication technology.

4.)  Building Private Cloud with Open Infrastructure by Nitin Gupta

This is the best session that actually I’m interested to know what is offering and differce option of oracle in Open Infrastructure.

If you have any quesions or queries please comment here, I’m happy to share my own views and experiences about these new technologies.

Cloud-Amazon RDS

Amazon Relational Database Service

The basic building block of Amazon RDS is the DB instance. A DB instance is an isolated database environment in the cloud.  A DB instance can contain multiple user-created databases, and you can access it by using the same tools and applications that you use with a stand-alone database instance. You can create and modify a DB instance by using the Amazon RDS command line interface, the Amazon RDS API, or the AWS Management Console.
