Oracle Database 11g Roadshow and Release 2 Sneak Peek

After seeing Pawel’s post I also registered for the event. This three hours briefing was mostly about Oracle Database 11g and provided an opportunity for me to meet with Oracle server technologies vice president Mark Townsend, identify how we can be involved in the 11g Release 2 beta program and outline how we can participate in the marketing of our products and services at Oracle OpenWorld as a partner.

In order to attend you should be in one of below categories;

– Independent Software Vendors
– Systems Integrators
– Consultants, and Pre-sales Consultants
– Resellers

And below are the scheduled next stops;

May 19, 2008: Czech Republic, Prague
May 20, 2008: Poland, Kraków
May 21, 2008: Sweden, Stockholm
May 22, 2008: Spain, Madrid

My impressions is that Pawel was right about his expectations since it was mostly just another colorful Oracle powerpoint day. I tried to ask several questions and took the advantage of speaking to Mark and these were the seconds where we got some technical. Since I believe it can be not appropriate to talk about 11g R2 in details I will skip details of those parts of the event and share my remaining notes as usual;

Oracle Database 11g Roadshow and Release 2 Seminar Notes

For 11g R2 let me briefly mention that other than impressive fusion middleware new features we the database people will be living the new Grid 2.0 era, ASMing everywhere, single RACing to rule them all and edition based redefinition for minimum change impacts on applications ;)
