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.

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

New Sales Play for EMEA Partners! Engineered Systems for Managed Service Providers


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).

 Why ES4MSP?

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:

  • Datacenter and Cloud market trends, and the business opportunity for partners
  • The Oracle Engineered Systems value proposition for Managed Service Providers
  • How to identify the best target customers for an MSP proposition
  • Contents and resources available to you, for growing your business by building an MSP offering.
