Oak Table World UK 2013

In three weeks time, I'll be travelling to Manchester for Oak Table World UK
2013
.

Actually, in three weeks time I'll be watching Roddy Frame
reprise Aztec Camera's debut album
- High Land, Hard Rain - but the next
morning I'll be catching the train to Manchester to present "Cloudy Reality".
It's a presentation about some of the things I've learned over the past 6
months, thinking about private clouds and Database as a Service
(DBaaS).

If the abstract seems a bit strange it's because I won't be
talking about anything to do with specific clients or projects but about the
things one might learn if one happened to be working on one of the larger
DBaaS projects out there.

Designing IT for Data Manufacture

As a (recovering) Mechanical Engineer, one of the things I’ve studied in the past is Design for Assembly (DFA). In a nutshell, the basic concepts of DFA are to reduce assembly time and cost by using fewer parts and process steps, making the parts and process steps you do use standard, automating, making it easy to grasp/insert/connect parts, removing time wasting process steps like having to orient the parts and so on.

Time for Bed, said Zebedee

Zebedee has just boinged onto my TV screen on his big-spring lower body and told us all that it is “time for bed”. I concur Zebedee. Good night everyone!

Delphix Benefits in Brief

Twitter question: “Can anyone give me a link to a very short itemized list of Delphix benefits?”

First,  short   summary: Delphix is the most powerful product to improve development output and quality in the 20+ years I’ve been working with databases. It improves development by eliminating the enormous infrastructure, bureaucracy and time drag that it takes to provision databases for development environments. Development environments depend on having a copies of production databases and Delphix allows provisioning in a few minutes with almost no storage overhead by sharing duplicate blocks among all the copies.
