Linux containers are fast, flexible, portable solutions well known for running applications and services. Yet they remain less well-accepted in the database community. In this session, we shine a light on the myths surrounding the suitability of containers for running databases and demonstrate the unique advantages and capabilities containers have over physical and virtual hosts.

Go from “Zero to Hero” and learn how easy it is to run Oracle databases in containers, using nearly any hardware (even laptops) to test, practice, and perfect DR and HA procedures, prepare for certifications, and more. Participants will learn to build and run Oracle databases in containers, gaining valuable insight into how containers work and interact with host systems.
