Solutions for Oracle on VMware to be in the spotlight at the Confio booth

Today Confio Software announced that two of its most experienced senior Oracle database administrators, Dean Richards and Janis Griffin, will present educational sessions at COLLABORATE 2012. The two presentations are designed to help Oracle DBAs learn ways to improve the performance and efficiency of their Oracle databases on both physical and virtual servers.

On Thursday, April 26 at 11 a.m., Richards will present, “Monitoring Oracle Databases in a VMware Environment.” This session offers guidance on the fundamentals of monitoring databases running in a virtual server. It helps DBAs understand which metrics are important and how to get the data.

Additionally Griffin will be presenting, “Hey Oracle Optimizer! Don’t Mess With My Plans” on Tuesday, April 24 at 2 p.m. It provides DBAs with information about 11g SQL Plan Management and how it provides controlled plan evolution to ensure stability and consistent SQL performance.

While at COLLABORATE, Oracle DBAs are encouraged to visit the Confio booth (no. 1415) to learn about performance management solutions for physical and virtual environments. Confio will be demonstrating its award-winning products including Ignite for Oracle performance monitoring solutions and Ignite for Oracle on VMware, both designed to resolve common pain points experienced by DBAs. In addition, the latest version of Ignite will be on display at COLLABORATE prior to its general availability release.

“The transition of databases from physical to virtual servers is one of the most significant trends the database management industry has seen in years,” said Don Bergal, chief marketing officer for Confio. “Because of this, we have invested heavily in creating the industry’s most robust and effective performance management toolset for Oracle DBAs on both physical and virtual servers.”

Ignite for Oracle and VMware is the one monitoring solution that identifies, analyzes and resolves all of the performance problems affecting applications and users. Unlike other software, Ignite doesn’t just show health metrics; it applies wait-time analysis to correlate the most important performance data to build a complete picture of the database performance for the DBA, Developer and DBA manager.

Additionally, Ignite gathers real time session data, server resource levels, and query information. It analyzes historical trends of response time over different dimensions – such as wait event, program or partition. Then Ignite correlates the data to lead the DBA through the most important problems and solutions.
