  1. Megazord - Consolidation & Management Infrastructure (Ohad Mata)

You know how sometimes you see an environment in such a mess, where you don't even know which servers are what? Where jobs and backups fail all the time without anyone knowing? Where the DBAs are so busy with daily maintenance they don't even get to work on the GOOD stuff? Where developers don't have time to wait for the DBA so they just install MySQL and start working? This is where Ohad was three years ago. But then he had enough...

Megazord is a project Ohad and his groundbreaking team of DBAs have been working on for the past three years. The Megazord project is a consolidation infrastructure used to manage SQL Server DBs for big scale systems with limited hardware (and human) resources, a problem well known to DBAs and SysAdmins.

Ohad Mata works as a SQL Server DBA and team leader in the Ministry of Defence for the last four years. He specializes in designing and implementing applicative databases for a vast variety of mission-critical systems. In his "spare" time he develops applications in many environments, such as Android, WebApp and Arduino, and you can find his apps in your nearest App Store.
