versions 6-11 last several years concentrating on performance and sql tuning currently spending most of my time I/O performance issues
Performance Architect at Delphix Delphix virtualizes Oracle databases by taking a copy, compressing it and then provisioning it out to different instances who share the one copy, with any modifications only being visible to that one instance. With this functionality we can give out a private copy of the production database to every developer in the company. For example a 20TB database copy for each of 100 developers would normally be 2 petabytes with regular provisioning but with Delphix turns out to be about 10TB. The virtual databases are mounted over NFS using ZFS filesystem so I spend my time working on analysis, monitoring and tuning of I/O over NFS on ZFS.
keep up with the latest Oracle technology and meet new people in the field
Worked on redesign of Oracle's Enterprise Manager performance pages[masked], designs are still in use as of lates 12c release Designed Embarcadero's DB Optimizer with first visual SQL Tuning Diagrams. Working on data visualization at Delphix now
these guys are dedicated and put tons of work to pull these events off - kudos
