This lecture aims to assist IT managers and senior executives who are evaluating or planning for Exadata deployments in understanding how it can fit into their support organizations.
The Oracle Exadata Database Machine is a proving to be a very popular solution for many database projects. It is a new approach and involves some new technology but primarily a new approach to delivering efficient database services, so it is natural that when evaluating Exadata and planning for its adoption organizations want to be sure, not only that it works but also that they can manage it effectively on a day to day basis in the context of their existing skill sets and organizational structures. As well as radically increased performance and capacity, a significant result of architectural simplification is that Exadata is simpler to manager and so offers the potential for more agile and lower cost administration.
After reviewing the Exadata architecture and differences from traditional platforms, this lecture discusses:
1. Benefits. What are the potential savings, where do they come from, with examples and case studies
2. Organization Structures. What are the options for how best to organize administration teams in order to optimize Exadata administration?
3. Administration tasks and tools are reviewed at a high level
