DSP Managed Services take the high ground on Oracle RAC, availability and E-Business Suite

What happens when you mix the complexity of Oracle E-Business Suite with the complexity of Oracle RAC? If your answer wasn’t unprecedented levels of flexibility, scalability and availability at commodity prices then you might be interested to understand what your competitors are up to.

London-based DSP Managed Services (formerly known as DSP Global Ltd) are Oracle specialists, with countless successful RAC and E-Business installations worldwide under their belt. They are also renowned for their “five 9s” approach to availability.

On 8th October 2008 09:30 - 16:00 at the London Radisson SAS Portman they are presenting:
“Up for Business: high availability and load-balancing configurations using Oracle RAC with E-Business Suite”

– A free, invitation-only seminar on the benefits, pluses and pitfalls of implementing RAC with E-Business Suite.

Dev Nayak, DSP’s highly experienced Technical Director, will disclose many an insight into how to enjoy painless implementation. But he’ll also be sharing his ‘What-not-to-do-list’, which promises to be even more revealing about how to get it right first time. According to Nayak: “I’ll not so much be speaking at the seminar as sharing part of my life! It’s all part of DSP’s mission to make unplanned downtime history. You see, RAC is all about availability and that’s what DSP are all about, too.” He added: “In fact we’ve just rebranded ourselves in order to more clearly articulate just that – our new corporate strapline is ‘Uptime. All the time.’ which pretty much says it all.”

Nayak, a regular speaker at UKOUG and a previous Chair of the UNIX SIG, spends almost all his working life on Oracle E-Business Suite – defining infrastructure architecture as well as installing, upgrading and securing Oracle systems – and he’s happy to share that experience. He told us: “I seen the worst and the best of Oracle RAC systems in the world, and as always you learn the most from the most challenging, which is why I think I have something really worth hearing on the subject.” If his enthusiasm is anything to go by, there will be few disappointed members of his forthcoming audience. Full agenda for the whole event is constructed by the UK Oracle User Group.

Founded in 1999 primarily as a 24*7 managed services provider (MSP) covering the entire Oracle technology stack from operating system to database, DSP Managed Services also offer a full range of professional services. Working to best-practice methodologies, they can provide everything from individual consultants to complete project teams (functional and/or technical) with specific niche Oracle skills. Customers can also look to DSP for ongoing monitoring, control, prediction and reporting across all of their databases, applications and integrations.

DSP count some of the best-known companies in the world among their clients, including Ladbrokes, Metroline, National Car Park, Several UK Universities, Cushman Wakefield, TNS, and Computer Patent Annuities. How do they account for this success? Nayak confirms that it’s down to a simple formula: “Businesses, large and small, all demand the same thing from their MSP – peace of mind – and that comes from their systems staying up 24*7. Our customers get that from us, which is why we’ve never lost one to date.”

Confidence like that is catching. It will be interesting to see how many people catch the seminar. Last day for seat reservation is Monday the 6th October 2008. The Project Manager for this event is Julius Kisielius please contact with any OUG Event enquiries.
