Welcome to the web site of Julian Dyke.
I am an independent database consultant specialising in Oracle
performance tuning and high availability including RAC and Data Guard.
I am based in England and generally work for clients in the UK and
Europe. I work for a number of customers, specialising in short term
assignments from one day to around two months and consequently I am
usually available at short notice.
I am a regular presenter at conferences and seminars in the UK,
Europe and USA. A number of my recent presentations can be downloaded
from this site.
I can be contacted either by e-mail
or by telephone +44 (0)7917 360777
MAAGEN is a configuration generator for Oracle Maximum Availability
Architecture (MAA) configurations.
MAAGEN generates all files and scripts required to create and
maintain physical standby databases. The configuration is specified in
an XML document.
MAAGEN is written in Perl to allow users to implement
their own customizations if required.
MAAGEN is included free with five or more days of consultancy
For more information see the MAAGEN page.
