Conference Report: The Power of a SAN in the Palm of Your Hand
Dear NoCOUG members and friends,
NoCOUG would not have had an average turnout of more than 150 attendees at 99 quarterly conferences over a period of 25 years if we did not continuously strive to bring you new speakers and a wide variety of practical and current topics. Ten of the fourteen presenters and co-presenters at Conference 99 last week were speaking for the first time at a NoCOUG conference and the agenda included practical and current topics such as SQL tuning, NFS tuning, data warehousing, data masking, database consolidation, Oracle on VMware, in-memory databases, and even NoSQL. One of my personal favorites was the presentation by Sumeet Bansal who showed that advances in NAND flash memory technology literally give you the power of a SAN in the palm of your hand!
Jonathan Lewis, the keynote speaker at Conference 99, was extremely complimentary of the enthusiastic and attentive audience. He wrote to us saying: “It was a pleasure to present at NoCOUG; the audience was one of the best I’ve had.” That is high praise indeed because Jonathan speaks at Oracle conferences all over the world.
I hope that every single one of our more than 400 members can join us at NoCOUG Conference #100 Sponsored by Quest Software – Simplicity at Work which will be held on Wednesday, November 9 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View; it will be our best ever. Please save the date and watch this space for more details.
P.S. Oracle Corporation would like to invite NoCOUG members to Oracle Technology Day 2011 happening on Tuesday, August 23 at Sofitel Hotel in Redwood City. Click here to review the agenda and RSVP.
