Friday Spotlight: Oracle Cloud Days Around the World

Happy Friday!

I wanted to bring some attention to a great series of events that kicked off this week in the US in Chicago, Oracle Cloud Day: Transforming Your Tomorrow.

This is a worldwide set of events that will help you understand how cloud is being used today, and how Oracle can help you leverage cloud technology to meet your business goals. These in person events talk about the entire Oracle portfolio, and many locations feature a dedicated session on Oracle Linux, Oracle VM, and Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux. If you're in the areas where these events are being held, I highly recommend them!

Head on over to the event home page and the schedule page to see if there is one happening near you.

Have a great week!

Friday Spotlight: Building the Modern Cloud-Enabled Data Center

Happy Friday!

Thanks so much to everyone that stopped by our booth and went to our sessions at LinuxCon North America 2015! We had a great time and it was fantastic getting the opportunity to meet and speak with many of you in person.

Some of the things that are top of mind for Linux users are (obviously!) the cloud impact on data center design, container technologies, OpenStack, security, and so on. So I looked through our archive to find a webcast that I think does a great job outlining how Oracle Linux approaches these things. If you're looking for a brief overview this Friday afternoon, head on over to this webcast archive and have a watch:

Friday Spotlight: Get The Story Straight From The Source

Happy Friday!

One of the great things about webcasts is that you get to hear directly from Oracle experts and even ask questions about your own environment. They are a great way to get in-depth information straight from the source, especially if you weren’t able to come out to Oracle OpenWorld this year.

Coming up next Tuesday, we have an excellent webcast hosted by Oracle Linux Product Management Director Avi Miller, “Spacewalk and Ksplice: Keep Oracle Linux Systems Up to Date and Secure.” In the webcast, Avi will explain the details on using Spacewalk and Ksplice with Oracle Linux. And you’ll be able to ask Avi questions through the chat interface. And since Avi is based in Australia, we’ve scheduled this webcast at 3PM PST, allowing our friends in that part of the world to be able to tune in at a reasonable hour.

If you missed that one, it’s a great introduction to Linux Containers, Docker, OpenStack, and more. The replay is just over 20 minutes, so you can head on over and check it out for a very concise overview of these technologies:


Have a great week!
