FY16 EMEA Sales Play: Secure Cloud Infrastructure
Wednesday, December 16, 2015 at 11:00am UK / 12:00pm CET
At the last Oracle OpenWorld, Larry Ellison pointed out that in the modern datacenter security must be always on, at every layer of the stack - actually, at every layer of the Cloud!
And he announced Oracle's Software in Silicon technology based on the SPARC M7 microprocessor, for on-chip security, query acceleration and world-record performance.
Data breaches already cost 100s of millions of dollars every year, and with the impressive growth of devices, mobile users and data, security is a more and more a critical component in the private cloud solutions you develop for your customers.
You are invited to a webcast, dedicated to Oracle Partners in EMEA, where we will show how to turn this evolution into a business opportunity for you!
During the webcast you will learn about:
» Security and Private Cloud market trends, and the business opportunity for you
» Oracle's Secure Cloud Infrastructure (SCI) solution, based on SPARC M7's Software in Silicon technology, and how to implement it for your customers
» SCI success stories, and how you can identify the best target customers for an SCI proposition
» Contents and resources available to you to help you grow your business as you build private cloud solutions for your customers.
You can now register for the webcast here:

Dear Oracle Valued Partner,
The need for business agility, cost reductions and risk control is driving the adoption of the Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) model by enterprises all over the world. Databases are a key component of any business application and therefore the agility in provisioning and managing Database services has a direct impact on the business.
Companies are adopting the Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) model both by rearchitecting their internal IT database infrastructure (Private DBaaS) or by moving some database workloads to Public Clouds. Eventually most enterprises will have a mix of Private DBaaS and Public DBaaS services, in what will constitute a Hybrid Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) platform.
We launched the FY16 “Private Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS): towards the Hybrid Cloud” Sales Play for Oracle EMEA Partners in a webcast we ran on Thursday, July 9th, 2015 where we discussed:

Many thanks to those of you who joined our partner webcast on July 2nd, where we launched the new FY16 Partner Sales Play "Engineered Systems for Managed Service Providers" (ES4MSP)!
The re-play link, the webcast slides, and additional resources are available in our Community Workspace, in the ES4MSP folder. Remember: you must be a Community member to access, and if you are not, please register here (select the "Hardware" Community when asked).
Over the next five years, a majority of organizations will stop managing their own infrastructure. Many of them will make greater use of dedicated and shared cloud offerings from Managed Service Providers (MSP) datacenters.
According to IDC, European managed hosting revenues will grow at +20% CAGR in the same timeframe.
The new Oracle Engineered Systems X5 family provides MSP's with the most cost-effective, reliable, high performance and easy to manage infrastructure for their datacenters - hence allowing MSPs to grow their business and minimize their costs.
In the launch webcast, Olivier Tordo, Paul Thompson and Giuseppe Facchetti talked about:
Oracle, users and the development community worldwide are celebrating 20 years of Java. Today, Java serves as the critical backbone of software that touches both our work and personal lives. From innovations in enterprise big data, cloud, social, mobile and the Internet of Things, to connected cars, smartphones and video games, Java continues to help developers push the boundaries in technology innovation.
