Oracle Developer Day November 2012 participants.

Ranking at #11 in the list of Forbes’ World’s Most Powerful Brand in October 2012, Oracle has never failed the I.T. professionals with its highly competitive product particularly in their latest Cloud Computing. Although we know that Cloud technology has been there for like several years now, still this company has again raised the bar when it comes to innovation.

Mr. Mike Blancas explaining his topic on Cloud Service Model.

During the conference, Mr. Mike Blancas, Principal Sales Consultant of the Oracle (Philippines) Corporation, was able to share his knowledge on Oracle’s Cloud Service Model. He said that the current release represents a Business Driven Application Management System due to its Total Cloud Control capability. First, it’s because of its Self-Service Deployment capacity wherein the end-users can install and freely configure the application by themselves. They can even select an application to use the database unlike before. Moreover, the end-users can now perform basic monitoring of resources in the cloud due to its Role-based monitoring capacity where they can impose policy-based resource management to provide the service to system only when needed (schedule based), or every time there’s a scale out and scale back actions to support the system (performance based).

Due to the model’s enhanced framework, the support on the system is proactive, meaning it’s extensible and self-updatable. But what intrigues this technology now is that, it can be quantified through its metering and chargeback capability. End-user costing can now be leveraged since the system can track each resources like the number of CPUs connected, amount of memory, length of time usage, etc. which will become the basis of the actual amount the users need only to pay. Furthermore, the costing on usage is highly configurable either per minute, per hour, and/or per resource.

Mr. Niel Pandya during his discussion about Securing Data in Private Clouds.

On the other hand, Mr. Niel Pandya, Senior Manager-Data Security of the Oracle (Philippines) Corporation, discussed the topic on how to secure data in Private Clouds. He mentioned that during the 90’s, Cloud technology for everyone was really a subject for discovery, setting aside the security. However, he shared that Oracle’s Cloud model today considered the importance of data in the Cloud by using the concepts on data discovery, compliance scan, vulnerability scan and security patching. He further exclaimed that the system can audit the database activity in real time via Oracle Audit Vault. Also, it can protect the data in insecure environments through Oracle Data Masking.

The speakers during their panel discussion.

Among the other topics that have been discussed during the conference were the following: Database as a Service (DBaaS) by Jug Mensenares and Andre Dela Paz; Big Data Technical Overview by Mr. Andre Dela Paz; Oracle NoSQL Database and Oracle Database (a perfect fit) by ER Hapal; and Oracle Advanced Analytics – Oracle R Enterprise & Data Mining by Mr. Mike Blancas.

There was a time when the call and data rate charges on mobile phones were not possible, but now there’s pre-paid call and text; there was a time when quantifying and metering electricity was not possible, but now there’s pre-paid metered electricity; there was a time when limiting resources and maximizing Cloud technology was not possible, but now there’s metering and chargeback. Maybe sooner or later, we might also have a pre-paid Cloud system. This is what Oracle Corporation is known for; surprising their customers what’s in the I.T. store. for them! (AAP)

    You are ever the best kuya Aleks. Even you’ve gotten already far as an engineer, still, you cannot turn back from writing and sharing your experience and observation. Oracle can use this for their News ah. Hmmm, or you are also part of your company’s publication? Nothing I can say anymore except “you are my idol!”. I idolized you for being the best in everything you do. I love reading your articles. May God bless you more wisdom and good health! ^_^

      Thank you Shine! I really appreciate what you said from the bottom of my heart. 🙂 One of the reasons why I keep on doing my passion which is writing, it’s because of people like you. Unfortunately, no, we don’t have a company publication. God bless you too and your family. Hope to see you soon, Shine! (^_^)
