A lot of companies opt to perform a technology refresh along the way when they are ready to do a database upgrade. Our lecture will focus on the deep dive of how to upgrade your databases to Oracle Database 12c Release 2 leveraging DBUA and/or the command line interface. Learn what is needed to perform a zero downtime database upgrade and migration leveraging the latest tools available at your finger tips.


Database upgrades consume lot of the corporate resources for testing and infrastructure staff.  We will show how you can reduce the upgrade timeline and testing cycles by rapidly provisioning of DEV/TEST/UAT environments on Oracle by leveraging technologies like Snapshot Manager Utility (SMU) on the ZFS Storage Appliance.  Also, reduce your storage footprint with deep deduplication and compression on the ZFS Storage Appliance and Exadata.


As you are upgrading to new hardware, learn how you can increase licensing efficiency on Oracle hardware.  Learn how sub-capacity licensing work on Exadata and ODA.  Lastly, look at the new X-7 architecture and what it means for reducing Oracle licensing as you consolidate more Oracle databases on Oracle hardware.
