Last month, right before the holidays, I attended the UK Oracle User Group Tech15 Conference in Birmingham. It was a fantastic event with an enormous amount of sessions and talks about all things Oracle. With my OTN Banners and a rolling suitcase full of camera gear and electronics making every airport security agent from San Francisco to Frankfurt nervous, I made my way to the Birmingham ICC.
Having been my first time to this particular event, I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I got there. I was pleasantly surprised! The attendance was impressive and the educational materials were flowing. Experts from every niche of the Oracle world were there to present on everything from mobile cloud tools and app development, to hardware and database how-tos, best practices, and optimization.

Today, I wanted to highlight a quick tip from Tammy Bednar, Director of Product Management for the Oracle Database Appliance, on how to improve database performance by utilizing the flash cache option on the X5-2.
