First of all I would like to
introduce my colleagues’ blog: OracleCloud4Developers.
Their goal is to help the developers understand how to use the Oracle PaaS
& IaaS for their work. You will be able to read here some of the most
technical posts on cloud in this blogosphere.
For today I would like to
make a recap of my 3 favorite partner resources from Oracle.
I will start with Hardware
Technical Resource Center for OPN Partners, which is a beehive workspace
that provides Sales Engineers and Sales Consultants access to critical
technical product information for Oracle servers and storage. This is the place where all the EOL
announcement of our hardware will be posted together with all the information
you will ever need to know about our hardware products.
Second on my list is Oracle System
Handbook, an actually gold mine for any presale that puts together hardware
proposal for his customer. The handbook
is old as Sun Microsystem itself and is still the place to go if you wish to
see how the products look like if you strip them down to manufacturing part
numbers level. It’s downloadable and can even be access by your customer if
they have an oracle support account.
When I joined Oracle I came
with solid industry knowledge, yet with no tangible knowledge of Oracle
products. After 3 weeks I was able to answer most of the customer questions and
my secret was (and still is) the Partner Competency Center online training. Here you will find product trainings that are group
together in specific products global learning path. What I love about this GLP’s is that they take
a product (T5 severs or Oracle Linux for example) and present it from each of
the opportunities stages perspectives. The best part of it is that is free and
new training are released almost in the same time with new product announcement.
