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.
Visit our pod in Oracle’s demo area - Booth #955
Attend "Oracle Linux and Oracle VM Strategy, Update, and Roadmap” session at 4:30PM on Monday, April 13 in South Seas A. Topics include OpenStack, Docker, and other exciting things relating to Oracle Linux and Oracle VM.
We will also present at Cisco's booth #1003. Oracle has many years of partnership with Cisco and we will talk about how you can benefit from this collaboration:
Attend "Oracle Linux and Oracle VM on Cisco UCS" session at Cisco booth
Before you invest in server virtualization, take a test-drive and look under the hood at the Oracle VM engine on the Cisco UCS server. Oracle VM application-driven virtualization, combined with Cisco UCS, designed from the ground up to drive virtualized workloads and deliver a powerful and cost-effective infrastructure for the cloud. Join us in this workshop for a unique opportunity to speak to Cisco and Oracle product experts on how you can quickly build a private cloud using Oracle VM, Oracle Linux, and Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c on the UCS platform. Admission is free and space is very limited, so register today!
Date: September 28, 2014
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. PT (Lunch will be served)
Location: Courtyard Marriott San Francisco Downtown
299 Second Street, San Francisco (Two blocks east of the Moscone Center; please note, this is not the San Francisco Marriott)
Nimble Storage SmartStack™ for Oracle provides pre-validated reference architecture that speed deployments and minimize risk. IT and Oracle administrators and architects realize the importance of underlying Operating System, Virtualization software, and Storage in maintaining services levels and staying in budget. In this webinar, you will learn how Nimble Storage SmartStack for Oracle provides a converged infrastructure for Oracle database online transaction processing (OLTP) and online analytical processing (OLAP) environments with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM.
SmartStack delivers the performance and reliability needed for deploying Oracle on a single symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) server or if you are running Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) on multiple nodes.
Nimble Storage SmartStack for Oracle with Cisco can help you provide:
Improved Oracle performance
Stress-free data protection and DR of your Oracle database
Higher availability and uptime
Accelerate Oracle development and improve testing
All for dramatically less than what you’re paying now

Join this event to learn from our Nimble Storage and Oracle experts on how to optimize your customers' Oracle environments.
Cisco Live is Cisco’s premier education and training destination for IT professionals worldwide. Oracle will be part of the largest gathering of Cisco customers, experts, and partners anywhere in the world, on May 18-22 in San Francisco.
Cisco is one of our closest partners with more than 20 years of partnership, which covers engineering, joint solutions, sales engagement, support for mutual customers and more. As part of our engineering engagement, Cisco is constantly qualifying and supporting Cisco UCS hardware on Oracle Linux with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel and Oracle VM.
Oracle had been collaborating with Cisco and Netapp to validate the FlexPod solutions for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM. The combined products give customers access to infrastructure designs that are pre-tested and pre-validated building blocks for application consolidation, private cloud migration or data center modernization. In addition to the benefits of the integrated design and validation, there are specific unique benefits that Oracle VM and Oracle Linux add to Cisco products. You can get more information about these solutions as well as other key advantages of using Oracle Linux and Oracle VM if you visit our booth.
Come and see us at Booth 2229 – Cisco Application Partners Pavilion.

As the Oracle community is gathering at IOUG this week sharing news, checking out the latest innovations, the Oracle VM and Oracle Linux team are also busy working to expand our platform validation support. In a collaborative effort with both Cisco and NetApp, we’d like to give you an early glimpse of the upcoming reference architectures for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM with FlexPod:
A FlexPod with Oracle VM is scheduled for the second half of 2013 – this Oracle VM architecture offers virtualization coverage for Oracle as well as non-Oracle workloads
A FlexPod featuring NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP with Oracle Linux, coming Jun 30, 2013 – this is the second Oracle Linux bare-metal design
A FlexPod with Oracle Linux, coming June 14, 2013 – this is one of two bare metal designs for running Oracle DB on Oracle Linux
The combined products give customers access to infrastructure designs that are pre-tested and pre-validated building blocks for application consolidation, private cloud migration or data center modernization.
In addition to the benefits of the integrated design and validation, there are specific unique benefits that Oracle VM and Oracle Linux add to FlexPod:
Oracle VM – Application-Driven Virtualization difference: Speed Dev/Test/Production application deployment – Using Oracle VM Templates, customers can deploy applications 7-10x faster than traditional virtualization approaches. Entire application stacks including guest OS with Oracle Linux can quickly be deployed or provisioned in hours or minutes. This empowers IT to have a direct impact on the business Quality of Service by enabling more test systems and or respond to end customer requirements more quickly.
Enhanced high availability with Oracle Linux: With Ksplice, Oracle Linux kernel updates are installed in seconds, without interrupting running applications or the people using those applications. You can quickly check on the current status of your systems before rolling out updates to your network. Installing updates requires no downtime, so your systems are more available than ever.
Certified by Oracle: All Oracle applications are certified on Oracle VM. This gives customers peace of mind that FlexPod with Oracle VM running Oracle applications are both fully tested and certified by Oracle
Reduce Licensing Cost: with zero licensing cost for both Oracle VM and Oracle Linux and low enterprise support cost, customers can dramatically reduce both capex and opex IT spending.
We’ll keep you updated as these reference architectures get published. Like us on Facebook or Follow us on Twitter to stay informed.
