We have 4 weeks left until Oracle Openworld San Francisco. In our first blog update, we covered Oracle Linux sessions. This is our second update in which we are covering Hand-on Labs and Demopods, where you can experience Oracle Linux at a personal level, wheather you are a practical person that likes to play around with the software or a person interested in getting detailed insights from Oracle Linux kernel engineers and product managers, these are the places to visit and sessions to attend:
This year we have 2 Demopods and 2 Hands-On Labs:
Oracle Linux Demopods are located in Moscone South, Oracle Systems and Storage Demo grounds, Booth #1133.
3533 - Oracle Linux: The Best Enterprise Linux
Oracle Linux brings the latest Linux innovations to market, delivering extreme performance, advanced scalability, and reliability for enterprise applications and systems along with worldwide, enterprise-class, cost-effective support. It is free to download and distribute, including patches and updates. Meet Oracle Linux experts and find out what makes Oracle Linux the best enterprise Linux. Learn about innovative features such as Ksplice zero-downtime updates, DTrace, and industry leading management and high availability tools available to Oracle Linux customers.
3537 - Migration Made Easy: From Red Hat and SUSE Linux to Oracle Linux
Thousands of customers rely on Oracle Linux to run their business-critical applications and lower their infrastructure costs. Oracle Linux offers many key advantages over both Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES). Visit this demo pod and discover the benefits of Oracle Linux compared to RHEL and SLES. Also learn how easy it is to migrate to Oracle Linux. Our experts will walk you through the migration steps and show you that the switch from RHEL to Oracle Linux support can be accomplished in just a few minutes.
Getting Started with Linux Containers on Oracle Linux (HOL10019)
Linux Containers (LXC) allow you to run multiple isolated Linux instances (containers) on the same host. A container is a way to isolate a group of processes from the others on a running Linux system that does not require you to set up a virtual machine on an emulation of physical hardware. This hands-on session gives you the basics of working with LXC on Oracle Linux; installing and configuring required software packages; setting up a Btrfs volume for the container storage; configuring, starting, and logging in to a container; changing a container's network configuration; limiting a container's resource usage (network/disk I/O); cloning an existing container; and monitoring and shutting down containers.
Oracle Linux Package and Patch Management Solutions (HOL10147)
In this session, you will learn how to implement and work with various patch management features of Oracle Linux. This includes working with the yum package manager and getting hands-on experience in obtaining more information on security errata using the security plug-in. The yum snapshot plug-in and the Btrfs file system are used to demonstrate how you can roll back package updates to a previous state. The session also covers creating a local yum repository and how to connect this repository to Oracle Enterprise Manager. In addition, you will learn about the Ksplice service and have the opportunity to install and configure the Ksplice offline client for applying kernel updates to your system with zero downtime.
Visit our demopod to receive a Oracle Linux and Oracle VM DVD Kit and other goodies. You can plan your visit in the Openworld Schedule Builder and also bookmark Focus on Linux website to see when Oracle Linux events are happening.
We look forward to seeing you in Moscone South demogrounds and hands-on labs.
Till next time...
