E4 will feature two days of deep diving into the internals of all things Exadata, providing the tools and knowledge Exadata users need to more fully understand its advanced powers. Hosted by Enkitec, an Oracle IT consultant firm that has implemented over 80 Exadatas.

Enkitec announces its inaugural “Enkitec Extreme Exadata Expo” (E4) - established to explore all facets of working with Exadata. Enkitec created E4 to better educate Exadata users, based on over 80 successful Exadata implementations since its first deployment in 2009. Leading authorities from around the world (including Tanel Poder, Kerry Osborne, Jonathan Lewis, Maria Colgan) will present myriad topics on Exadata internals at the two-day event to be held August 13-14, 2012, at The Four Seasons Hotel & Resort in Irving, Texas. Along with the preselected speakers, Enkitec is opening the E4 Call for Papers until May 31, 2012. Papers submissions can be emailed to e4(at)enkitec(dot)com. See http://www.enkitec.com/e4/call-for-papers/ for more details.

“E4 is the first Exadata conference aimed towards a global audience, one that not only focuses entirely on Exadata and enterprise Big Data topics, but also features sessions by speakers at the top of the field who have worked on many different Exadata environments,” stated Enkitec Europe’s Managing Director, Tanel Põder.

E4 will feature single-track sessions with more intensive break out deep-dive explorations over two days. Registration fees are $1,250 for on-site attendees (includes accommodations for two nights). Mr. Põder continued, “This event is important, due to the Exadata product's relative youth and fast -paced change, it’s hard to get quality information on the wide variety of Exadata topics in one place.”

Enkitec believes that Exadata is a revolutionary change in database architecture. With over a dozen Exadata experts on the company roster, Enkitec is considered to be a worldwide authority on the subject.

“Enkitec has completed a large number of Exadata implementations, maybe more than any other company in the world,” stated Enkitec Exadata Evangelist, Kerry Osborne, “We’re seeing that once companies get their Exadata in-house, they often get frustrated at not knowing how to make the platform to perform optimally. Our team has taken our own machines apart with a screwdriver to learn how to make Exadata work better for our customers. We want to share these experiences with other users to help them truly understand Exadata internals. That’s what our first-ever E4 is all about.”

For those interested in staying the week, Enkitec will also teach two intensive Exadata-centric courses at the Four Seasons Hotel immediately following E4, from August 15th – 17th. Participants can choose between “Exadata Administration” and “Exadata Performance Optimization.” The cost of each three-day course is $2,400.
