Steve Karam instructor comments

 


Steve Karam is one of less than 20 DBA's worldwide to achieve the coveted Oracle 10g Certified Master status.  A former senior instructor for Oracle University, Steve has a proven track record in performance and troubleshooting on dozens of high profile Oracle systems, and complex Oracle 10g RAC environments. 

Combining his organization and technical skills, Steve serves as a Senior Oracle Consultant for Burleson Consulting, Steve investigates an unprecedented number of Oracle databases and he excels at Oracle database assessment, Oracle tuning and system optimization.  Steve Karam is also an accomplished Oracle Instructor and teaches dozens of Oracle classes for BC (www.dba-oracle.com).


I've worked with Steve on several occasions when we were in need of an expert consultant.

His vast knowledge of performance tuning along with his extraordinary knowledge of Oracle RAC made him the perfect candidate to help us with our RAC performance issues. Not only was he able to identify and resolve our issues, but he also provided the DBA team and the Development team with the knowledge transfer that we needed to prevent or resolve any similar future issues.

We also called Steve to help us with a RAC upgrade issue. Steve was able to help us resolve every issue we encountered in a timely manner. Without his help, we likely would not have completed the upgrade within our maintenance window.

His assistance has been invaluable. I absolutely trust that when I call Steve, he will know the answer and he will always be happy to help.
