Oracle’s Autonomous Cloud Database Gets a Boost with a New Dedicated Deployment Service

By | Oracle
Oracles Autonomous Database was a huge transformation in database management and cloud services. This offering provided a more hands off and automated management experience to enable companies to spend less time and energy on ongoing database management tasks and more effort on strategic development. But there were some concerns from enterprise level companies that stopped higher adoption rates. Now, Oracle is releasing more capabilities to help these enterprise level customers isolate their databases for a more customized, dedicated service. Serverless Database – The original offering, Autonomous Database Serverless, is incredibly flexible and hassle-free. The service takes care of infrastructure and maintenance needs with a minimal amount of oversight and configuration. This is great for those customers without a complicated data management system, but for enterprise level customers in need of a more customized experience, this offering proved too limited. Dedicated Database – Now Oracle is rolling out the new Dedicated Deployment service to accommodate more customization and specification. This service provides private cloud hosting within the Oracle Exadata infrastructure hosted on Oracle’s Public Cloud. This means that each customer’s private cloud space is completely isolated, giving them more flexibility when it comes to managing multiple data sources or customizing service (more…)

What Sets Oracle’s Second-Generation Cloud Infrastructure Apart?

By | Blog, Oracle
Oracle launched their innovative Next-Generation Cloud Infrastructure at the Oracle Open World conference last October, and it’s been getting rave reviews ever since – changing the ways in which businesses can move to and operate in the Cloud. Oracle’s Gen 2 Cloud was built from the ground up to better accommodate enterprise functions, leverage a business’ existing technology, and optimize security – all while maximizing performance and cutting costs. So, how it is different from the first-generation Cloud? Oracle’s Second-Generation Cloud Infrastructure rises above older Cloud technologies because it was developed with the following capabilities and features in mind. Accommodates Enterprise-Level Workloads Previously, clouds were built for primarily web-based applications; they were not designed for traditional enterprise systems. Many enterprise workloads – often bulky, complex, and deployed on-premise – couldn’t easily be migrated or wouldn’t function in a Gen 1 virtual environment. Kyle York, Oracle’s VP, said in a recent Q&A, “First generation public cloud offerings were not architected to accommodate traditional application architectures. They were architected for net-new cloud native applications. Think websites, mobile apps, or ecommerce storefronts—certainly not financial systems, government workloads, or data-intensive applications.” In fact, a Forrester Study showed that only 15%-30% of enterprise workloads have (more…)

Protect Your Cloud Database with Top Strategies for Cloud Security

By | Security
Database and data security are major concerns for most organizations, with good reason. Bad actors are pervasive in our interconnected environment and staying one step ahead takes strategic planning and active management. With more and more databases hosted in the cloud, organizations must be particularly aware of the security risks and data protection strategies available. According to the 2019 Cloud Security Report from Synopsys, 93% of organizations reported being “moderately or extremely concerned about cloud security.” This is understandable, but this concern doesn’t outweigh the benefits of utilizing a cloud or hybrid infrastructure. Instead, the important focus should be on developing and maintaining a robust security strategy, identifying top products and service providers, and taking a proactive stance in your data security platform. Selecting a Secure Cloud Provider – One of the first steps in establishing and maintaining a secure cloud database for your company is identifying the best provider for your needs. Going with a well-established service provider, like Microsoft or Oracle, means peace of mind knowing that the company has an established record of industry-leading security practices. Saving a few dollars on the front end with lesser known providers is just not worth it if it opens up (more…)

Oracle EBS – Improving Performance with Analyzers

By | Oracle
Oracle E-Business Suite is a fantastic suite of applications designed for the enterprise client to facilitate data management and analytics. The group of tools brings exciting possibilities to the Oracle client. But there’s more. The introduction of Analyzers as proactive tools improves performance and reduces troubleshooting headaches for the EBS client. If you’re using Oracle EBS, it’s time to check out the available Analyzers. What are Analyzers? These tools are essentially diagnostic support tools that can help not only identify issues but also suggest corrective action. They are designed to work alongside your current maintenance program to boost its effectiveness and your productivity. If your current diagnostics tools aren’t offering you suggested solutions, then you’re not using analyzers. The analyzers can also help if you need to open a service request with Oracle. They will gather important data to speed the diagnostic process and get a quick resolution. How do They Work? These tools can be scheduled ahead or run on demand by authorized users. They analyze your environment for known issues and create assessment reports with findings and recommended actions.

Data Connect: SAP Renews Commitment To Sybase

By | Dobler Consulting Newsletter
  Data Connect: SAP Renews Commitment To Sybase What’s New   Last Quarter – I published a newsletter announcing the End of Mainstream Maintenance for Sybase ASE 16 and Sybase Replication Server 16 by December 31st, 2025 and for Sybase IQ 16 by December 31st, 2024. Furthermore, there was no successor release listed in the SAP internal release schedule, this left room for all kinds of speculations and assumptions that caught the attention of SAP. Their initial response with the explanation were semantic differences between End of Mainstream Maintenance and End of Life Support, although valid, did little to calm the anxiety. Last Month – SAP hosted an event in Washington DC to officially announce a Roadmap for Sybase ASE and Sybase Replication Server. This was a well-received communication and step forward in instilling confidence with the install base. Unfortunately, the way SAP publishes Roadmaps forced the documents to fall off the top placements and are difficult to find. I made it easy for you. Download the Roadmaps here.   Sybase ASE Roadmap Sybase Replication Server Roadmap   Last Week – I had a face-to-face meeting with the global SAP Leadership for database and technology. In my estimate, this was (more…)

Migrating from SQL Server to Azure

By | Azure, Database Technology Trends, SQL Server
Extended support for SQL Server 2008 has ended, and there is no better time to consider a migration to Azure. Continuing to run business applications and workloads on an unsupported platform will open you up to unnecessary vulnerabilities and potential legal issues. The risk is just not worth it. If you have been holding out for fear of complicated processes, there’s good news, Microsoft is making it easier than ever to migrate to Azure and take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing, including scalable resources and always up-to-date security features. With a trusted database solutions partner, your migration can be quick and painless. Check out this guide for more information about migrating from SQL to Azure. Why Migrate – If you are on SQL Server 2008, the answer is clear. Migrating is a must to stay on top of your database health and security. Now you may be asking, why can’t I just upgrade to Server 2019? You absolutely can. But this time is a perfect opportunity to minimize the impact of a cloud migration to reap the benefits of hosting your workloads in a cloud or hybrid environment. Utilizing the Azure cloud allows for scalable database solutions and (more…)
