The Oracle Hardware Converged Infrastructure team has been hard at work.

Here are the latest IT Infrastructure headlines in case you missed them:

OpenWorld is right around the corner!

Discover the latest in IT Infrastructure at Oracle OpenWorld

We are ready to paint San Francisco red from October 22 to 25, 2018 at the Moscone Center downtown! Oracle OpenWorld offers four busy days filled with keynotes, learning sessions, networking opportunities, and fun. We’re especially excited about this year’s content program, which will bring together Oracle customers, industry leaders, and domain experts. In building out the content, our goals were threefold: to make your life as an Oracle customer easier, to help you drive greater success with Oracle products and solutions, and to facilitate learning from other Oracle customers around common business challenges.  The Oracle OpenWorld Session Catalog is live, and we encourage you to browse some of the 500+ sessions available (with more being added every day).

Oracle Engineered Systems is just what the doctor ordered for healthcare IT infrastructure

Data Drives the Modern Healthcare Organization

One of the most important steps is to manage the data that’s the heartbeat of their organization. Data makes it possible to provide quality patient care, streamline operations, manage supply inventories, and build sound long-term organizational strategies, among other things. Perhaps today’s most critical healthcare challenge—outside of the frontline clinician-patient encounter—is efficiently, securely, and affordably managing data.

For many midsize healthcare providers, Oracle Database Appliance offers a realistic, affordable option that optimizes performance for the Oracle Database. The completely integrated package of software, compute, networking, storage, and backup makes setup simple and fast. At the same time, it delivers the performance and the fully redundant, high availability so critical to healthcare environments. And it’s cloud-ready, so that organizations can migrate to the cloud seamlessly.

With all the uncertainty healthcare organizations operate under today, they need IT solutions that can adapt and change as their needs change. Oracle Database Appliance was designed with flexibility to meet organizations’ changing database requirements. Compute capacity can be scaled up on demand to match workload growth.

Thinking about upgrading your IT Infrastructure? Consider your organizations long term IT plans.

Selecting an Oracle Engineered System like SuperCluster will help improve ROI and avoid potential upgrade disruption when you’re ready to scale.

Change is an ever-present reality for any enterprise. And with change comes an opportunity cost, unless IT infrastructure is flexible enough to satisfy the evolving demand for resources. From the very first release of Oracle SuperCluster, a key attraction of the platform has been the ability to upgrade the hardware as business needs change.
Modifying hardware can be very disruptive. Hardware configuration changes create a ripple effect that penetrates deep into the software layers of a system. For this reason, an important milestone in the upgrade landscape for both Oracle SuperCluster M8 and Oracle SuperCluster M7 has been the development of special purpose tools to automate the upgrade steps.
