Will it blend? Verifying capacity in server and database consolidations Exa Roundtable
With the introduction of engineered systems such as Exadata and the Oracle Database Appliance (ODA), more customers are interested in consolidating Oracle services onto these platforms. In any consolidation, there is uncertainly around sustaining the workload of the many separate databases on a single platform.

Oracle’s Real Application Testing, not only can test real production workloads against a consolidated host, it now can also test multiple source database workloads against a single database. By subjecting a pre-production consolidated system to the true concurrent workloads it will experience in production, Real Application Testing provides assurance that any consolidation will result in success, with no performance surprises.

To Exalogic, or Not To Exalogic… An Architectural Journey Oracle Exalytics and TimesTen for Exalytics Best Practices
This will be an exploration of the business case to move Oracle applications to Exalogic, or update the environment to new, commodity hardware. Working with the Oracle sales and Insight Teams, Veolia Environmental Services went through an evaluation of the Exalogic Elastic Cloud for our current PeopleSoft along with several new application implementations over the next three years.The Exalogic evaluation process seems to take longer than the actual implementation. A technology investment of this level requires analysis of current and future work loads, current technologies, and, of course, finances. After this presentation, attendees will have a better understanding of the evaluation process, the decision making process, and the final decision Veolia made.
