Kiwi as…

I have been in New Zealand for two and a half weeks now.  It seems like I have been here a long time and then again it seems like the time has flown by.  I am sure that all of my Kiwi coworkers are dying to know what I thought of my time here.  So […]

How Oracle Database Replication Looks Down Under

The long awaited date had finally arrived, New Zealand Oracle Users Group’s event NZOUG14.  I was told about this event by my colleagues.  Dbvisit employees often speak around the world at different Oracle conferences.  But NZOUG14 is a bit special, as Dbvisit is headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand, the City of Sails.  I was excited to […]

Cloudy with a chance of …AWS

Dbvisit got a great opportunity thanks to Amazon Web Services (AWS). As many people may know, Dbvisit are AWS Partners. We were fortunate enough to be invited to participate in their Test Drive booths this past week at Amazon’s signature event re:Invent in Las Vegas. Before I talk about the event I want to spend a minute talking about […]

Oracle Sequences and Replication

As I mentioned last week, Oracle sequences are often topics of conversation when discussing replication. Last week we covered the basics of sequences and I pointed out a few important facts; there may be ‘gaps’ in the sequence as Oracle does not guarantee that they will be in order, that there is an option to have […]

Introduction To Oracle Sequences

In the world of database replication, sequences seem to be a recurring theme.  In fact, I don’t think that a week goes by without a prospective customer asking a question or two about sequences and what happens in regards to replication.  To that end I thought it might be a good idea to talk to replication.  Before […]

Oracle OpenWorld Unwrapped (Part II)

Last week I talked about many of the non technical facets of OOW.  This week I want to focus on some of the technical aspects of Open World.  Before I talk about the event itself and those announcements let me tell you about two ‘new’  tech things that are causing  disruption in their markets. The first […]

Audit the Oracle Database Without Compromising Performance: Dbvisit Replicate’s Hidden “Gem”

Auditing production database activity is an important administrative process, which should not be ignored.  Those who consider auditing unnecessary ignore it at their peril!. There are several techniques offered by Oracle to audit the database, in both Standard Edition (SE) and Enterprise Edition (EE), from the audit command and fine grained auditing, through to manual […]

Oracle OpenWorld Unwrapped (Part I)

Oracle Open World 2014 was in many ways an exclamation point on the year for Dbvisit.  Once again we had a booth in the exhibitor hall.  Once again we had multiple sessions with Dbvisit employees speaking at sessions (in total there were five sessions conducted by Dbvisit speakers).  This year we sent our largest team […]
