Experience the America’s Cup All Over Again

By: Oracle Staff


Take a Selfie with the America’s Cup. Learn About the Technology Behind the Victory. Meet the Team.

Were you standing on the shore last year when ORACLE TEAM USA sailed to victory? Do you miss the experience? You can recapture it—in part, standing under the winning boat, having a photo taken with the trophy, hearing about the technology behind the victory, and getting an autograph from one of the team members. Where? At Oracle OpenWorld, of course.

Let’s start with the boat—an AC72. It’s on…or above Howard Street near 4th Street, and it serves as a roof for a visitor area, the Innovation Lounge, dedicated to the America’s Cup competition. At times during the conference, the trophy will be on display in that area. Snap a photo. You can also hear about the technology that gave the US team the first victory in the 132-year competition and the most recent.

What type of technology played a role in 2013? Oracle data collection, real-time analytics, performance sailing technology, historical analysis, and extreme database performance. Discover more by attending one of the technical presentations.

Want a photo with team members and an autograph? There are opportunities for that as well during the conference. Here are the where and when:
