Now back from Vienna!

I want to thank all participants and speakers of the Exadata, Exalogic and Manageability Community Forum in Vienna this week.

During these very packed two days we have seen how the adoption of Exa technology by the partner community is out of discussion. Presentations by partners have included a large number of real customer projects, through which Exadata and Exalogic have become key building blocks of the customers' infrastructure.

In addition we have had presentations by Oracle staff about Exadata, Exalogic and Manageability, or about those areas that relate directly to the data infrastructure of the customers (Data Integration, Backup and Recovery).

Of course, lots of networking and sharing, which is the reason of the community to exist!

I hope that those of you who have attended have achieved your objectives, and look forward to seeing you in future events! 

The presentations from the forum are now downloadable in pdf format from the Community Workspace.

(Remember that you need to register as a community member to have access to the workspace)
