Oracle is one of the biggest contributors to Linux but it’s also at the forefront of exploring what is possible with cloud computing and containers, including integrations with Docker and contributions to the Open Container Initiative.
This year Oracle is sponsoring LinuxCon North America and Wim Coekaerts, Sr.VP Oracle Linux and Virtualization Engineering will be keynote speaker. He will be talking at the event specifically about how the cloud revolution is changing the role of the operating system, a very relevant topic for attendees. Amanda McPherson of Linux Foundation, spoke to Wim at Oracle’s campus in Redwood Shores a few weeks ago, and in this short video preview, Wim tells if the operating system still matters in a world of virtualization and containers and how that impacts application development.
LinuxCon is the leading annual technical conference in North America that brings together a unique blend of core developers, administrators, users, community managers and industry experts. This event is designed to provide a much needed collaboration and education space for the Linux community.
This year Oracle will be one of the key sponsors and we have a keynote session that features Wim Coekaerts as speaker.
LinuxCon will be showcasing multiple products including Oracle Linux, Oracle Openstack for Oracle Linux, Oracle VM and MySQL in the following sessions:
Visit the Oracle booth in the showcase area to connect with our speakers and technical experts.
Oracle is a bronze sponsor at LinuxCon Japan that is happening in Tokyo, June 3-5, 2015. We have two great sessions and a booth to showcase Oracle Linux and related products. Oracle Linux team will have experts available to answer your questions and give you more information about our products.
Tracing in Linux today has become quite main stream. Linux has come a long way from when the first attempt to insert tracing infrastructure and tools in the kernel tree was made several years ago. But where are we now? While existing tools are being refined and more sophisticated features are added to them, there are still fundamental areas where improvement is happening and exciting new approaches are surfacing, such as using the BPF (Berkeley Packet Filtering) infrastructure for tracing purposes, for instance. This talk is a new and revised version of my previous tracing talk with specific emphasis on new developments as opposed to providing an overview of the field.
This talk will give an overview, with some examples, of how it is possible to produce first class documentation using Open Source Tools. The use of DocBook XML and a variety of other programs, together with an automated build system written in house has produced very good results in our enterprise documentation team. We build all our Linux, Virtualization and MySQL docs using this system.
Don't forget to visit our booth and attend our sessions.
We have just few days left for Collaborate 2015. Oracle Linux and Oracle VM teams will be present in multiple areas so we would like to highlight them all here in this blog.

Fusion-io, now a SanDisk company, introduces support for Oracle VM
Fusion ioMemory has long history helping customers accelerate Oracle Linux environments. With its latest release of Virtual Storage Layer for Fusion ioMemory products, SanDisk now offers full support for Oracle VM expanding the ways that customers can take advantage of the combination of Oracle virtualization and Fusion ioMemory flash.
The new Fusion ioMemory Atomic Series provides premium performance for server-side PCIe application acceleration. The Atomic Series delivers the industry’s highest capacity flash in a PCIe form factor with up to 6.4TB per card. Improved error checking and correction technologies further add value for the most demanding enterprise customers.
Server-side Fusion ioMemory accelerates database applications placing data closer to the CPU and system memory resources for outstanding performance results. . This also allows customers to cache data on the server to accelerate application performance and dramatically reduces the load on Storage Area Networks (SANs). This also eliminates the I/O bottlenecks associated with highly virtualized servers while scaling up VM performance and density to increase the number of VMs that can efficiently run on a server.
