Presentation Title: What's So Special About the Oracle Database Appliance? (Winter 2014 Update)
Speaker: Mr Simon Haslam Oracle ACE Director
Company: Veriton
Presentation abstract: The Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) is one of Oracle's best kept secrets: it is a "small" engineered system that provides a "database in a box" and,

since virtualisation capability was added in spring 2013, offers lots of potential use cases to the Oracle infrastructure architect.

Simon started researching this system in autumn 2012, took part in a production installation in summer 2013, and since then has focussed his attention on deploying Fusion Middleware products (such as Oracle SOA Suite) on the ODA. He shares these experiences in this technical session which is intended to help any organisation who might be considering deploying databases and applications to this system. It describes what's nice about the ODA, its limitations and, based on customer experiences, how it can be used most effectively. The important new ODA features introduced in 2014 will also be covered.
