Converged Infrastructure – Powering a New Generation of Enterprise IT

Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance Sales Training

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).
Engineered to consolidate Oracle and non-Oracle x86 workloads and deploy them in hours - not days or weeks – whether they run on Windows, Linux or Solaris for x86.

Imagine being able to offer your customers the ability to deploy a new cloud service for their business in an hour as well as optimise licensing. With the Virtual Compute Appliance, they can. 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:
»  Converged Infrastructure market and VCA’s position in it
»  VCA Opportunity for partners
»  How to sell the business value of VCA and lessons learned
»  Competitive positioning
»  Success stories

Target Audience
Sales Representatives, Sales Managers, Business Development Managers and Marketing Specialists – PreSales Specialists are also welcome to join.
