With the pace of change in today’s business environment accelerating so rapidly, data centre agility and flexibility have become business-critical.
To succeed, businesses must be able to deploy innovative applications and react to changes in market conditions at a moment’s notice.
Because of this, an increasing number of companies are realising the value of shifting to a Converged IT Infrastructure. As an Oracle partner you need to be prepared to address this opportunity with your customers by being able to offer the right solution – Oracle’s Virtual Compute Appliance (VCA).

It includes everything your customers would need – hardware, software, virtualization, networking, SDN and storage – all preconfigured, pre-integrated and pre-cabled.
A half-day VCA Sales Training is available, dedicated to OPN partners, that will cover:
