I’m an Oracle DBA and Exadata Database Machine Administrator (DMA) based in the Greater Pittsburgh area.
I’m very lucky to get the chance to do some neat stuff in my job – especially with Exadata – and I love to share any knowledge that I do pick up along the way.
I find myself writing a lot of “How To” papers about how I solved a particular problem or set up a new feature in the hope that I can save another DBA some time, effort and/or frustration in the future.
Some may never read them, but if I manage to help just one person, then it’s worth the typing.
This blog is meant to be a subset of these papers and a sort of personal record, as well as a commentary on various data-related news.
The views expressed in this blog are solely my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of … well, anyone else, to be honest.
