Try reviewing these key factors prior to selecting a migration method and save yourself some additional time. Know Your On-Premises Operating System/Platform and Version – Ensure you have a full understanding of the platform your company is currently working on along with the version.

Improving your Database Security with Microsoft Azure

By | Azure
If you are interested in migrating to a cloud database but concerned about security issues, look no further. Hybrid and cloud native databases do have their own set of security concerns, but if you go with a trusted company and maintain it appropriately, you have nothing to fear. In fact, cloud databases can be more secure since they have access to the most advanced security protocols and automatic updates. Cloud native databases, or DBaaS (Database as a Service) platforms are databases hosted and maintained by third party providers. Operating a DBaaS means that your company will access data through the internet instead of through your internal network. DBaaS solutions offer great benefits for organizations in today’s “Big Data” arena. DBaaS is more scalable and flexible than traditional VM databases. It also eliminates the hardware requirements of maintain a database system. It is crucial to understand and trust the security protocols of your cloud provider before making the switch. Microsoft Azure is at the top of the list when it comes to cloud database offerings. It is a particularly good choice for the security conscious client. Microsoft in general, and particularly Azure, have a long history of prioritizing security for its (more…)

What’s the Deal with Oracle 18c? (part 1)

By | Oracle
Oracle’s newest release, 18c, is out, and I know what you’re thinking: what happened to 12.2.0.2?  Is it really time for a whole new version?  Well rest assured, this is not really a whole new version. It’s an entirely new method of naming that more accurately reflects what has been going on for years.  The old model of multiple release versions and patch sets wasn’t doing justice to the database.  The multiple release model led many to shy away from adopting any first release database for go-live workloads.  But honestly, for years the patch sets have been full releases in all but name. So now Oracle has decided to change its release schedule, and each annual release will be named after the last two digits of the year.  The plan is to speed the release of smaller changes while avoiding the massive overhauls that used to come with first releases.  What would have been database 12.2.0.2 is now 18c, and 12.2.0.3 will instead be 19. They have also gotten rid of the Patch Set Updates and Proactive Bundle Patches.  Instead we will now get Release Updates (RU) and Release Update Revisions (RUR).  So now that we understand the new release (more…)

Dobler Consulting Celebrates Ten Year Milestone as a Managed Solutions Provider

By | Press Releases
  Remote Database Administration An Idea Whose Time Has Come…   Tampa Bay – February 22nd, 2018: In 2008 Peter Dobler, CEO and Founder of Dobler Consulting had an idea. He saw that database volumes were growing exponentially, that they were increasingly less secure and the talent pool of skilled Database Administrators (DBAs) was shrinking. His entrepreneurial idea was to attract the most talented DBA’s, give them the very best tools, training and processes; then remotely service large corporate databases more scalably and securely as a managed solution. “In 2008 the concept of Remote Database Administration was novel thinking to many, but not all, corporate CIOs,” said Dobler “I am forever grateful to the early adopters who saw that data growth, security and talent could either be an existential threat or a competitive opportunity for their enterprises.” The implications of exponential data growth are alarming, the research firms IDC confirms that from 2013 – 2020 data will grow from 4.4 trillion gigabytes to 44 trillion – a 10X factor. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects an 11% increase in the need for DBAs. And the Ponemon Institute estimates the average data breach cost US companies $3.5 million in 2017, with a 27% (more…)
