Re: Oracle has very goog technology for large corporations
As a veteran DBA one thing I can tell you about good DBAs, they were doing DevOps long, long, a very long time before DevOps become a trendy job. When you have to manage more then 4 Oracle databases, in fact any quality RDBMS for that matter, you learn to script every damn thing in the place so you spend an hour a day max doing your checks and maint. The rest of the day you spend learning and improving things. A good DBA has to have good comms skills, networking, basic dev skills in multiple languages, sysadmin knowledge, project planning, etc. Sounds an awful lot like a devops job spec to me!
