The House of Brick Partner Podcast is a series of conversations with important partners and clients.  The intent of the podcast is to share, educate and advise listeners on best practices for business-critical database platforms.

Companies looking to optimize their business systems, including reducing costs and improving performance, would benefit from topics such as:

  • Being prepared for a potential Oracle or Microsoft audit
  • Database licensing on premise vs the cloud
  • License management for Oracle and SQL Server
  • Migrating Oracle to an alternative database platform
  • High availability and disaster recovery best practices
  • Virtualization of business-critical systems and database platforms
  • And other Oracle & SQL Server deployment and license management topics

  • What is the “vCPU” metric and how does it relate to processor licensing?
  • When should dedicated hosts be used for Oracle deployments in cloud?
