I am an Oracle dba started in Oracle 9i. I am currently working as a Senior Oracle DBA at Exitas NV . Check their twitter handle ( @ ) some nice things are shared through there as well.
Most of the time I work on short term projects which put me in touch with a lot of different aspects of the Oracle database, going from infrastructural point to complete designs and implementations, the result of this is a nice allround experience and a broad personal network.
Currently the focus is on Exadata/ODA and virtualisation on exadata. Exadata experience starting from X2 to X6 including complete reinstallation’s and redesigns of the environment.
My main focus is to help the customer to find the best solution fitting in his budget and offer the maximum out of it given restrictions. That sometimes requires taking an exam. My most relevant badges are also here on my badges page.
The bit of free time there is left, is mostly spent on being husband and a dad for my son.
The time left I like to spend with sailing and playing the double bass, bass guitar and the saxophone.
