Gluent New World #04: Next Generation Oracle Database Architectures using Super-Fast Storage with James Morle

Update: The video recording is available in Vimeo (see below)

Other relevant reading is James’es Sane SAN 2010 whitepaper and his legendary book!

It’s time to announce the 4th episode of Gluent New World webinar series by James Morle! James is a database/storage visionary and has been actively contributing to Oracle database scene for over 20 years – including his unique book Scaling Oracle 8i that gave a full-stack overview of how different layers of your database platform worked and performed together.

The topic for this webinar is:

When the Rules Change: Next Generation Oracle Database Architectures using Super-Fast Storage


  • James Morle has been working in the high performance database market for 25 years, most of which has been spent working with the Oracle database. After 15 years running Scale Abilities in the UK, he now leads the Oracle Solutions at DSSD/EMC in Menlo Park.


  • Tue, Jun 21, 2016 12:00 PM – 1:15 PM CDT


  • When enabled with revolutionary storage performance capabilities, it becomes possible to think differently about physical database architecture. Massive consolidation, simplified data architectures, more data agility and reduced management overhead. This presentation, based on the DSSD D5 platform, includes performance and cost comparison with other platforms and shows how extreme performance is not only for extreme workloads.

This should be fun! As usual, I’ll be asking some questions myself and the audience can ask questions too. See you soon!

NB! I am running one more Advanced Oracle Troubleshooting training in 2018! You can attend the live online training and can download personal video recordings too. The Part 1 starts on 29th January 2018 - sign up here!

    I wonder who can be inerested in system like DSSD D5. No SPARC/HPUX/AIX Support? OK, UNIX is dead (or not??? :) ). OK no VMWARE support? What the hack?
    On the other nice to see that, did finaly EMC find out that XtermIO is not a flash, but only bunch of SSD?

    • Pavol Babel says:

      moreover, no CopyServices,no Remote Replication… Definitely not suitable for Enterprise Environment…

        Well the enterprises are changing. Microsoft Windows runs a Linux subsystem now, MSSQL runs on Linux as other examples :) Storage will go towards bunch of dumb “disks”, everything else done in software – and more open source software over time. Everything going towards software-defined, the era of monolithic hardware and software solutions is over. Not all companies know that yet though. And IBM still does plenty of mainframe business, so the old world is not going away, will keep ticking on in the background.

      You’ll have a chance to ask this question from James during the session!

    It wasn’t that useful a session to be honest..from ‘technical knowledge’ point of view.
    It was more like a semi-marketing presentation of the D5 from EMC.

      Thanks for the feedback.

      My main aim when planning this session was to make everyone aware that the era of monolithic Fibre Channel SAN arrays is over (regardless if they are filled with flash or disks). Data storage is moving closer to CPUs, eliminating multiple bottlenecks and hops (latency) in between. DSSD guys are the leaders in that space (direct PCI-attached *shared* storage), so it’s good to see what they’re doing.

      Btw I have one more “general” GNW planned, but after that I plan to split GNW into two streams, one is for DBA types (like myself) who want tech details & internals of new technologies – and another one for talking about what’s possible with new technologies from enterprise architecture point of view (also myself now). So, different streams for different audiences.
