I’m at Hotsos Symposium this week, and it suddenly occurred to me that a lot of Oracle DBAs who are beginning to manage MySQL servers might have some things to share with others in a similar role shift:
- Familiar, comfortable tools and techniques, or capabilities of the Oracle Database, that you miss in MySQL
- Equivalents or replacements for the aforementioned
Do you have anything to share with your fellow DBAs going through ODT (Oracle Delerium Tremens)? Do you have any wishes that you haven’t satisfied yet? Post in the comments and let’s see if we can create a sort of forum for sharing and/or a wishlist in case someone gets an urge to fill in a missing piece!
Did you know that you can subscribe to Oracle Magazine for free? It doesn’t have much content on MySQL, but it’s not such a bad thing to stay at least a little bit in touch with what Oracle is doing with the Oracle database server, too. You can subscribe online free.
I’ll be speaking at IOUG’s Collaborate conference in Florida the week of April 10-14. My session is called MySQL Performance Basics. For those who know MySQL, this won’t be exciting, but if you’re new to it, I hope it will be a good orientation to what you should focus on and ignore.
Sheeri Cabral posted a good round-up of the MySQL talks at Collaborate on the PalominoDB blog.
