Well, at the moment, if you are dealing in Dockers, then OpenShift and if you are already using weblogic then Oracle Java Cloud Service.

About me

I am a data leader who loves data passionately. For the last 17 years, I have seen and managed Oracle databases of every shade, and now as they move up towards the cloud, I am flying with them.

I have been deeply involved in Oracle Exadata implementations at various clients along with other DBA tasks. These days I am focusing on migration of various production and non-prod databases from on-premises of clients to the Amazon AWS and Oracle Cloud using Goldengate, data pump etc. I am Certified Exadata Implementation Specialist and OCP.

I love to learn all things Oracle every day. To learn I contribute to community through blogging since 2005, speaking, and forum postings. That is why Oracle Corp awarded me Oracle ACE award in 2011.

I have spoken at Oracle Open World San Francisco, Collaborate14 in Las Vegas, Insync12 Australia, New Zealand OUG, UKOUG, Foresight Perth, & many other conferences around globe.

Co-authored following book with Michael Abbey et al: Oracle Database 12c: Install, Configure & Maintain Like a Professional by Oracle Press. Interviewed by Oracle Magazine in Sep/Oct 2011 issue. Australian Certified Trainer and Assessor. DBA Trainer.

I help therefore I am. I want my customers to succeed and relax at all hours of day and sleep soundly at night by knowing that their data is in safe hands. I want my team to succeed by having 100% assurance of collaboration, help, and passion from me. I want my managers to succeed by having ultimate trust in my always-available and can-do attitude. I want my company to succeed by synergizing my services with others to create best possible data-carer outfit out there.
