Oracle OpenWorld 2019 and Oracle Code One went by in a flash. It was a wonderful week, packed with great content. There was a fun new vibe at the conference, lots of learning, and much to inspire and celebrate. Below are some of the Oracle Linux and virtualization highlights.
We launched Oracle Autonomous Linux, which marks a major milestone in the company’s autonomous strategy. Oracle Autonomous Linux, along with the new Oracle OS Management Service, is the first and only autonomous operating environment that helps greatly reduce complexity and human error to deliver increased cost savings, security, and availability for customers.
For more details, watch the highlights from the keynote announcement, listen to an interview with Wim Coekaerts, Senior Vice President, Operating Systems and Virtualization Engineering, and read the news release, blog, and website. Go to Oracle Cloud Marketplace to get started.
We learned more about Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment; container orchestration with Kubernetes and Kata; how to use the Developer Image for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure; setting up a kernel-based VM with Oracle Linux; securing systems with zero-downtime using Oracle Ksplice; developing for the cloud with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM VirtualBox, the impact of selecting the right infrastructure software from first-hand customer experiences, and more.
In this interview, Wim Coekaerts talks about what Oracle is doing to help make things easier for developers – across apps, database, and infrastructure – whether the target is deployment in the cloud or on premise.
Hardware partners Dell Technologies and Lenovo, who work with the Oracle Linux and virtualization team to certify their hardware through the HCL program to run our software, showcased joint solutions, while in a session about optimizing environments, Cisco shared how the company uses Oracle Database running on Oracle Linux.
Several sessions covered more about the interconnect collaboration between Microsoft and Oracle, in which our team is closely involved.
We celebrated our amazing customers! To all those who joined us at the conference, we appreciate your time and hope you found the demonstrations, sessions, keynotes, and 1:1s valuable. Sharing your experiences helps drive innovation. Your feedback, knowledge, and perspectives are vital in helping us deliver industry-leading products and services. Making you successful with your Oracle Linux and virtualization deployments – on premise or in the cloud – is among our most important goals and a tremendously rewarding achievement.
It was a pleasure to host the Developer Appreciation Event where we shared some brews, casual conversation, and demos including Oracle Linux, Oracle VM VirtualBox, GraalVM, Helidon, Oracle Digital Assistant, Oracle Integration Cloud, and Oracle Content and Experience. Oracle CloudFest.19 at the Chase Center was a big hit. The performers and the venue were superb!
It was a special honor to recognize eight of our customers with the 2019 Oracle Excellence Awards for their leadership in infrastructure transformation. Congratulations!
