Real-World Performance Tour


Konferansen er nå fulltegnet!

Oslo, February 13, 2015: Tom Kyte, Graham Wood and Andrew Holdsworth!

The Real-World Performance (RWP) Group is part of the Oracle Database Development organization. Engineers in the RWP group focus on extracting the maximum performance from the Oracle Database and hardware in the real-world. We do this by identifying inefficiencies in current systems and applying modern database design and tuning techniques.

Welcome to a day packed with live demos, learning about architecture, performance and configuration. You will learn performance from the gurus that have been in this game longer than most people.

The event is targeted for:

  • Architects – See the consequences of bad design and configuration
  • Developers – See how your code, application servers, and databases can work better together
  • DBAs – You are in this heat – learn how to maximize performance and get rid of queues in the database

The RWP Group has been called out to the biggest customers and seen the most spectacular break-downs in production systems. They have collected lot of experiences and can teach you how to avoid common mistakes; systems that don’t scale and break down when put into production or on the busiest day of the year. This is not about parameter tweaking, but how myths, bad design, lack of testing, and lack of understanding causes systems to not perform and even break down.

The RWP Group has their own channel on the Oracle Learning Library where you can get familiar with their work:
