Oracle Services on RAC at Collaborate

Just a quick post to say that I’ve uploaded the slides from my services presentation at Collaborate and you can find them over on the publications page. Thanks to everyone who attended!! Great questions and comments throughout the session. Next time I’ll try to get through everything faster so that there’s more time for Q&A!

Next week sometime I expect to upload the instructions from today’s Hands-on Lab (11g RAC on VMware with ASM and OEL5). I want to clean it up a bit first. For anyone who didn’t hear the story, I heard on Sunday evening that they had a room with about 50 computers which was going to sit empty during a few timeslots. And to me that seemed like a tragedy – how often do I wish I could have a chance to try something new with a bit of guidance and without worrying about hosing my laptop?! So I decided to write a hands-on lab for 11gRAC/VMware. I pretty much spent all day yesterday putting it together but it came out great!

Also I’m thinking about repeating that RAC/VMware lab around Chicago sometime… is there anyone around the Chicago area who might be interested in something like this?

Guess I should also mention that I’ve been rather enjoying myself at Collaborate so far too! (Even though I spent pretty much all day yesterday making that Hands-on Lab…) Got a chance to meet Peter Scott Monday night – that was fun! Somehow he spotted my name badge and then I got to finally put a face to someone I’d only known as a blogger. :)

  2. Jeremy, Thanks for taking the time and initiative to set this up. It was a great idea. I’ll definitely get this fired up on my personal box when I get home. Great way to play with rac without a lot of hardware.
