Happy Super Bowl Friday! I live in Santa Clara, California so this week had been a busy one for us and we are looking forward to a great Super Bowl 50 experience. Another great event I want to tell you is the live webinar we are organizing in early March. Don't miss it:
Enterprises are rapidly embracing cloud services to speed innovation and drive cost savings. Innovative IT organizations are leaping to software-defined ‘virtual data centers’ that enable corporate IT to connect, aggregate, and configure computing resources public and private in unprecedented ways. For many companies, private cloud infrastructure that can run existing applications as well as cloud-native applications are an attractive alternative to re-writing their existing applications to run in a public cloud.
Join this webinar to hear: - How to create and agile private cloud infrastructure that can grow with your company - Strategies and benefits to implement an open source cloud environment - Benefits of using converged infrastructure in cloud

Come and talk to our experts and grab a DVD with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM on it.
We have a brand new digital white board video for you this week on why virtualization drives the cloud. The host is Oracle VM Product Management Director John Priest, and while the video is focused on Oracle VM, it has some great general purpose information in it, too. It would be interesting to folks interested in Oracle VM, Oracle Linux, and just cloud infrastructure in general.
