The following presentations correspond to the various sessions that are part of the agenda for Oracle Technology Network Architect Day in Reston, VA (May 16, 2012). These presentations are accessible via Slideshare.
- Engineered Systems: Oracle's Vision for the Future | Ralf Dossmann
Oracle's Exadata and Exalogic are impressive products in their own right. But working in combination they deliver unparalleled transaction processing performance with up to a 30x increase over existing legacy systems, with the lowest cost of ownership over a 3 or 5 year basis than any other hardware. In this session you'll learn how to leverage Oracle's Engineered Systems within your enterprise to deliver record-breaking performance at the lowest TCO.
- High Availability Infrastructure for Cloud Computing | Kai Yu
Infrastructure high availability is extremely critical to Cloud Computing. In a Cloud system that hosts a large number of databases and applications with different SLAs, any unplanned outage can be devastating, and even a small planned downtime may be unacceptable. This presentation will discuss various technology solutions and related best practices that system architects should consider in cloud infrastructure design to ensure high availability.
- Cloud Computing - A Pragmatic Approach to Cloud Adoption | Scott Mattoon
The road to Cloud Computing is not without a few bumps. This session will help to smooth out your journey by tackling some of the potential complications. We'll examine whether standardization is a prerequisite for the Cloud. We'll look at why refactoring isn't just for application code. We'll check out deployable entities and their simplification via higher levels of abstraction. And we'll close out the session with a look at engineered systems and modular clouds.
- Innovations in Grid Computing with Oracle Coherence | Bjorn Boe
Learn how Coherence can increase the availability, scalability and performance of your existing applications with its advanced low-latency data-grid technologies. Also hear some interesting industry-specific use cases that customers had implemented and how Oracle is integrating Coherence into its Enterprise Java stack.
- Enterprise Strategy for Cloud Security | Dave Chappelle
Security is high on the list of concerns for many organizations as they evaluate their cloud computing options. This session will examine security in the context of the various forms of cloud computing. We'll consider technical and non-technical aspects of security, and discuss several strategies for cloud computing, from both the consumer and producer perspectives.
- Cloud Management with Oracle Enterprise Manager | Joe Diemer
Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) provides complete lifecycle management for the cloud - from automated cloud setup to self-service delivery to cloud operations. In this session you'll learn how to take control of your cloud infrastructure with EM features including Consolidation Planning and Self-Service provisioning with Metering and Chargeback.
- Oracle Cloud Reference Architecture | Anbu Krishnaswamy
Cloud initiatives are beginning to dominate enterprise IT roadmaps. Successful adoption of Cloud and the subsequent governance challenges warrant a Cloud reference architecture that is applied consistently across the enterprise. This presentation will answer questions such as what exactly a Cloud is, why you need it, what changes it will bring to the enterprise, and what the key capabilities of a Cloud infrastructure are - using Oracle's Cloud Reference Architecture, which is part of the IT Strategies from Oracle (ITSO) Cloud Enterprise Technology Strategy (ETS).
- Business Integration for the 21st Century | Peter Belknap
Service Oriented Architecture has evolved from concept to reality in the last decade. The right methodology coupled with mature SOA technologies has helped customers demonstrate success in both innovation and ROI. In this session you will learn how Oracle SOA Suite's orchestration, virtualization, and governance capabilities provide the infrastructure to run mission critical business and system applications. And we'll take a special look at the convergence of SOA and BPM using Oracle's Unified technology stack.
