Oracle OpenWorld 2014 hands on labs: HOL9078, HOL9079, HOL9121 and HOL9122

Oracle OpenWorld 2014 will  start in a few days. As every year, among the 2000+ sessions presented there will be many Hands on labs.

These labs are a unique opportunity to better understand several Oracle products (applications, database, middleware, OS, virtualization, ...). The idea of these labs is to enable 40 to 50 customers and partners to meet in a room and install/configure/use Oracle products on laptops during 1 or 2 hours, following detailed documentation and being helped by several Oracle experts.

The team that worked on Oracle VM and OpenStack HOL(s) consists of:

  1. Doan Nguyen  - Senior Principal Product Marketing Director for Oracle VM
  2. Simon Coter - Technical Expert Core Technology
  3. Olivier Canonge  - Pre-Sales Consultant
  4. Christophe Pauliat - Systems Sales consultant
  5. Bruno Bottreau - Pre-Sales Consultant
  6. Ken Crandall - Principal Sales Consultant
  7. Ronen Kofman - Director Product Management - Oracle OpenStack

The proposed labs are

Building a Complete HA Oracle VM Infrastructure from Server to App [HOL9079]

Oracle provides all the components to fulfill all service requirements and support all hypothetical faults and/or needs. Components such as Oracle VM, Oracle Linux, the Ksplice feature of Oracle Linux, and Oracle Clusterware enable you to maintain your systems without service outages and, at the same time, build up a hardware/software fault-tolerant solution. In this hands-on lab, you will learn how to ensure 0 percent service outages with Ksplice for security patching; live migration for server HA, and Oracle Clusterware for uninterrupted application services.
