My name is Kai Yu. I am a senior principal engineer/solution architect in Dell Oracle Solutions engineering lab. I have been working on Oracle technologies since 1995. My involvement with Oracle Technologies really came from two different prospects: as a hardcore Oracle Database administrator and Oracle Applications DBA in various IT departments 1995-2006 and as an Oracle solutions architect and system engineer since 2006 while I focus on design and architecting of various Oracle solutions that are usually composed of the entire technology stack: hardware platforms, storages, network, OS/Oracle VMs , Oracle databases/RAC and/or Oracle ERP applications. In April 2010, I was nomiated and accepted by Oracle ACE program and became one of 51 Oracle ACE Directors (as in April, 2010), a group of officially recognized Oracle experts with strong credentials as Oracle community enthusiasts and advocates.
To share my work and experience with colleagues, I have published Oracle technical whitepapers and articles in some technical magazines such as the proceedings of IEEE HPCC conference, IOUG SELECT Journal, Dell Power Solutions magazine and Dell /Oracle Websites, and have given over 120 technical presentations at various US and International technology conferences such as IEEE HPCC conference, IOUG BIW, Oracle OpenWorld, IOUG/OAUG Collaborates, UKOUG Tech & EBS conference , Oracle OpenWorld Asia, OTN LAD conference tours and APAC conference tour and OUG EMEA Harmony conference, DOAG, BGOUG, OUG Norway. Please visit “Publications” section of this blog for my whitepapers and “Presentations” section of this blog for my conferences and seminar presentations. I received the Dell most prestigious “Customer Experience Legend Award” in 2008 and two times “Dell Enterprise Solution Group Revolutionary Awards” in 2011 by Dell executive management for architecting Oracle solutions. In April 2011, I received the industry prestigious Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) 2011 Innovator of the Year award on behalf of Dell for the creative work on virtualizing Oracle E-Business Suite Applications on Oracle VM. In 2012, I was awarded and the 2012 Oracle Excellence Award: Technologist of the Year: Cloud Architect by Oracle Magazine. I am a co-author of Apress book “Expert Oracle RAC12c.
One of my favor activities is to work for the Oracle user community. In 2008-2015 I served various roles such as president and Chair positions and board member of the Independent Oracle User Group (IOUG) Oracle RAC Special Interest Group( Oracle RAC SIG), a user community which specializes in Oracle RAC technology. In 2011 I co-found the IOUG Virtualization SIG which is latterly changed to IOUG Cloud Computing SIG. I have been the board member of the Cloud Computing SIG and Webinar chair and Vice president ever since. I also served as an IOUG Collaborate conference committee member, the SIG advisor and a paper reviewer many times and the manager and presenter of IOUG Oracle RAC performance tuning boot camp and IOUG High Availability Bootcamp at IOUG Collaborate conferences.
