Virtualization Bootcamp for Oracle Technology Professionals
Collaborate 10 - Oracle User Conference April 18, 2010
Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV
Presenters: George Trujillo (Sun Microsystems) and Steve Lemme (Computer Associates)
Attendees can bring their own laptop and use a Sun Virtual Box solution on their own machine to configure and manage a Solaris virtualized environment. A laptop is not required if an attendee would like to watch the workshop demonstrations instead of doing the hands on labs.
In supporting and managing new technology, administrators and DBAs are increasing virtualized environment deployments with production applications, web servers and databases being moved into them. Virtualization is one of the hottest areas in database environments for reducing the total cost of ownership and optimizing operations. Virtualization offers, speed, flexibility and agility in managing systems, databases, application servers. and applications. Beyond the driving factors, what do you need to know to be successful in supporting and managing virtualized environments? Join your peers in this bootcamp designed to help you increase your skills, learn virtualization fundamentals as well as management essentials. Virtualization is increasing its role and is a stepping stone for cloud computing and automation in the data center.
