Data Exploration

It’s all about the Data

Viscosity’s Oracle Tech Day in San Diego, California

Thursday April 12th, 2018  |  1:00 PM – 5:00 PM









The recent trend of companies moving their traditional IT environments into the cloud seems challenging, time consuming, and expensive.  In actuality, moving your on-premise services into the Oracle Cloud can take you less than 15 minutes, it is painless, and it is complimentary

Join Oracle ACE Director and Viscosity President, Charles Kim, as he conducts a segment of his popular Oracle Cloud hands-on lab, known to Oracle users around the globe as the Cloud Experience. While provisioning your cloud environment, listen to Viscosity’s COO, Jerry Ward, discuss Infrastructure as Code and deploying Enterprise Kubernetes Cluster in Oracle Cloud with Terraform.

Presentations and happy hour will be held at Ballast Point Brewing Company at Miramar!

* It is highly recommended that attendees register for free Oracle Cloud credits to follow along and gain the most value out of the interactive demo.  Attendees must bring their own laptops to participate in the hands on lab.

All attendees will receive a free Oracle Cloud book at check in!

Start your journey to the Oracle Cloud here… We walk you through an Oracle Cloud services trial so you can learn how to setup and configure the cloud and migrate data from an on-premise Oracle Database 12 implementation to the cloud. Create a storage container, set up OS secure authentication, and more.

During this event you can expect to get a first-hand look at the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse with a specific focus on security. The security of the Oracle Cloud is a complex and sophisticated system that Oracle prides itself on being one of the best amongst our competitors.

In this session we will also explore the use of Terraform (a tool for building, changing, and versioning infrastructure safely and efficiently) and an Oracle project called terraform-kubernetes-installer. We will explore HA recommendations and also tasks such as deploying, and scaling up and down a Kubernetes cluster all this with the ability to keep track though versioning of all infrastructure changes.

Kubernetes has become the go-to platform to manage and deliver solutions in the cloud. With all the power Kubernetes provides comes a steep learning path.  From all the concepts to all the parts to cover, it can be difficult to determine the relevant pieces to put attention to and deciding when to deploy a cluster into a cloud environment.
