Oracle's 5th Annual Fed Forum - October 18th 2011 in Washington D.C

A great opportunity for those of us living in the D.C Metro area that didn't have a chance to visit Oracle Openworld in San Francisco to hear about all the product launches that were announced. Oracle Fedral Forum in Washington D.C is on October 18th,2011 and will be at the Renaissance Marriott in downtown. It is free to attend and all you need to do is to register by following the link.

Cloud has it's own track and has 3 very interesting sessions.

The first Session "The Foundations of the Application Cloud in a Box - Exalogic" is being delivered by Mohamed Afshar, VP Oracle's Middleware product management. This session will focus on the benefits of a pre-engineered private cloud solution.

The second session should be very interesting - given Oracle's announcement of it's public cloud in Openworld. It is jointly delivered by Mike Hichwa, who oversees Oracle's Database Cloud offering and Ajay Patel, who oversees Oracle's Java Cloud offering.

The final session in cloud is about " Building Cloud Right" and is jointly delivered by Sushil Kumar, who manages Product Management for Oracle Enterprise Manager and Sergio Leunissen from our OVM PM team.

There will be other sessions that will highlight Oracle Unbreakable Data Appliance , Exalytics and Oracle Big Data Appliance.

Oracle announces Big Data Appliance

Oracle announced Big Data Appliance yesterday!. I am very excited about OBDA, mainly because now we have an enterprise vendor that is supporting NoSQL and Hadoop. So, what will OBDA contain? On the software side - Oracle Hadoop, Oracle NoSQL, Oracle Data Integrator for Hadoop and Oracle Loader for Hadoop the hardware is an integrated hardware system with Infiniband between the compute and the storage nodes. The great news for customers is that now they can process unstructured data (Acquire and Organize) and Analyze (using Exalytics - which was announced at the beginning of OOW) using technology that is supported in an integrated fashion from one vendor. I will start writing more as we progress along in the path of Big Data.
