    Accelerate Oracle Performance with Vexata and Database Smart Flash Cache
    Venky Nagapudi Recorded: Nov 14 2018 40 mins
    Oracle database administrators looking to get more performance against larger data volumes can utilize the Oracle feature called “Database Smart Flash Cache” to accelerate Oracle without. This webcast will detail how to take full advantage of this very useful but sometimes overlooked feature to demonstrate how admins with high query rate databases with large tables and huge volumes can get immediate Oracle performance acceleration using Smart Flash Cache along with the Vexata Scalable Flash Array. In this webcast, you will learn how to:

    •Architect Oracle Infrastructure that maintains existing primary storage using the Vexata VX-100 as the Smart Flash Cache Tier
    •Boost Oracle Database performance by 6X or more without the need to replace existing host servers or primary storage array.
    •Demonstrate these dramatic performance gains in your own Oracle environment along with technical documentation and resources to deploy Smart Flash Cache with no risk.

    Data is doubling every two years, driven by human and machine-generated data, such as the Internet of Things (IoT). The analysis of patData is doubling every two years, driven by human and machine-generated data, such as the Internet of Things (IoT). The analysis of patterns and structure in this data and its transformation into actionable insights is driven by Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Deep Learning (DL) workloads.

    IDC predicts that in the next three years over half the businesses will use AI, ML, and DL workloads. This has given rise to the NVIDIA DGX-1 GPU-based supercomputer to accelerate these workloads. Vexata supports the DGX-1 and delivers ultra-low latency, massive ingest bandwidth, and heavy mixed random and sequential read/write I/O operations. Using direct attached storage (DAS) or all-flash arrays (AFAs) limits the usefulness of the DGX-1 by restraining performance and requiring complex data provisioning, mobility, and growth. Vexata addresses these issues with VelocityAI, which combines the NVIDIA DGX-1 and the Vexata VX-100FS Scalable NVMe File Array.

    Learn about VelocityAI and how we built it to overcome these machine learning challenges. This webinar is targeted to those that want to leverage GPU for data analytics. Our expert will cover:

    - Dealing with large training and inferencing data-sets by leveraging NVMe media
    - Using the VelocityAI to eliminate movement between data pipeline stages
    - Dealing with data security, protection, and efficiency concerns

    Learn how you can leverage VelocityAI to deliver transformative performance with breakthrough economics at scale for your AI, ML, and DL applications.

  • How to Scale Oracle Database and Reduce Your TCO
    How to Scale Oracle Database and Reduce Your TCO
    Ganesh Balabharathi & Venky Nagapudi Recorded: Apr 19 2018 58 mins
    As Enterprises transition to online data-driven transactional business models, the need to support more customers and users at scale, typically means massive investments for Oracle database licenses and the supporting data infrastructure. But most enterprise infrastructure is not optimized to maximize the performance of CPUs in their database servers resulting in wasted resources and poor utilization of these expensive Oracle licenses. Are the bottlenecks in their current infrastructure well understood? With a plethora of solid state storage options available, do infrastructure architects know how to effectively evaluate and select the best storage platform to reduce Oracle TCO?

    The key to optimizing your Oracle infrastructure spend is the focus of this webinar where Vexata solution architects will address some of the common misconceptions related to scaling Oracle ecosystems using case studies and best practices to deliver massive performance improvements and realize significant cost savings.

    You will learn about:
    •When and how to tune various infrastructure options available to an Oracle DBA
    •How to maximize database performance including how to optimize CPU cores based on deploying solid-state storage systems.
    •Best practices for Oracle evaluation and benchmarking tools including SLOB2, IO Calibration, and Orion

    NVMe for DBAs
    Matt Henderson & Pinal Dave Recorded: Mar 8 2018 63 mins
    Since flash storage hit the market a few years ago, storage technology has been innovating at an ever-increasing rate. With new technologies like NVMe already out, and the next round of fabrics and 3DXpoint/Optane becoming production ready soon, database architects have a lot more to pay attention to and many more options for scaling or consolidating platforms. In this webinar we will cover:

    - The emerging technologies influencing database platforms (NVMe, fabrics, 3DXpoint/Optane, etc)
    - The effect of NVMe systems on database architecture & design
    - Database and data processing use cases for NVMe systems & 3DXpoint/Optane. (From existing SMP workloads like OLTP & analytics to emerging MPP technologies like AI, ML & IoT)
    - How to test NVMe systems (it’s not just about the average latency anymore)
    - How to see value per database & data processing workload

    We will review the state of infrastructure through the eyes of DBAs, database architects, and systems engineers and help them understand what they need to know for their current platforms and future platform design.
