FRIDAY SPOTLIGHT: Why Oracle Linux for Modern, Cloud-Enabled DataCenter?

Happy Friday everyone!

We have a great video to share with you this week. In this animated video,  learn how Oracle Linux includes the features and tools you need for your modern, cloud-enabled data center. 

While Oracle Linux is open source and includes standard technologies, tools, and features, Oracle extends the release to deliver a complete, integrated, and supported platform for performance-driven production workloads. In addition to the Red Hat Compatible Kernel (RHCK), Oracle supplies the optimized Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK), which was first developed to support highly scalable Oracle Engineered Systems. Support for Oracle Linux is affordable and the release is free to download and distribute, unlike other commercial Linux distributions. To add even greater value, Oracle bundles additional capabilities—Ksplice for zero-downtime kernel updates, support for Docker, Linux Containers, OpenStack, Oracle Clusterware for High Availability (HA), and more—at no additional charge with an Oracle Linux Premier Support contract. As a result of these additions, companies receive greater value from their Linux support investment, allowing IT organizations to achieve a higher return on investment.

Watch Oracle Linux for the Cloud-Enabled Datacenter.

FRIDAY SPOTLIGHT: Re-cap of OpenWorld 2015 for Oracle Linux, Virtualization and OpenStack for Oracle Linux

Hello everyone, what a week it had been, we have wrapped up another Oracle Openworld!

Thank you to all our partners, customers, speakers, demo staff and organizers for making this Oracle OpenWorld a special one. For those curious about the statistics this year, I wanted to share those fascinating numbers  (see infographic attached).

Oracle OpenWorld 2015 turned out to be an amazing one for our teams. We would like to recap and summarize our announcements and activities. 

Highlights from the Keynotes: 

Oracle Linux was center stage in this year's keynotes. Friday night, we had Intel CEO talking about how Oracle Linux and displaying it on the stage. One of the biggest announcements at the show is the new userspace patching capability of Ksplice, unveiled in Larry Ellison’s The Secure Cloud keynote . Ksplice is included with Oracle Linux Premier Support and administrators have been using it to patch the running Linux kernel with zero-downtime and without rebooting for years, with over 1 million patches distributed. But patching kernel vulnerabilities is only part of the security story, because vulnerabilities can also occur in system libraries like glibc and OpenSSL. In 2014, The Heartbleed Bug exploited a vulnerability in OpenSSL and cost organizations millions of dollars. With the userspace patching feature of Ksplice, vulnerabilities like this can be corrected immediately when the patch is available without downtime or rebooting, dramatically improving the security of your systems.

Watch the keynotes on-demand if you have not had a chance to tune in during OpenWorld. 

From theCube :

Wim Coekaerts, SVP of Linux and Virtualization Engineering discussed the updates to Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux and Open source at Oracle with SiliconANGLE Media team at theCube, at Oracle OpenWorld 2015 in San Francisco. My favorite part was about his comments on open-source. He explained Open source at Oracle is a “development strategy, not a philosophical approach.” If it makes business sense to develop the product as open source, that’s how it moves forward. Open source is not just in my department,” Coekaerts explained, "but rather across the company". This was a great video interview with Wim Coekaerts, not to be missed!

Highlights from the Showcase and Exhibition Hall:

Our Oracle Linux, Oracle VM and OpenStack Showcase area was a big hit with the Oracle OpenWorld attendees this year. Our partners amitego AG, Intel, Huawei, Fortinet, SGI, Qlogic, Niksun and Linux Foundation showcased their solutions and presented in the theatre. We also had great interaction with attendees at our Oracle demo pods fe,aturing Oracle Linux, Oracle VMOracle VM VirtualBox, Oracle Secure Global Desktop and Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux products. Our theatre sessions were so busy that we had to bring extra seating. 

Highlights from our sessions:

Our sessions were amazing, everyone that attended came out with positive remarks, one attendee tweeted at Greg Marsden's session : "Nice session 'Maximize Oracle Linux Performance on Servers and in the Cloud'  Tuning OS, Memory, FS. Can't wait to try them. #oow15 ".  There were few "wow!" and "really?" remarks in Wim Coekaerts' general session when audience heard that Oracle VM VirtualBox supports almost all the OS in the market including IBM OS/2 (looks like some of our banking customers still using it for custom applications). 

Key takeaways:

  • Security is critical in today's ever-present cyber attacks and we have the solution for your Linux environment: new userspace patching and existing kernel patching capability of Ksplice makes it the must have item
  • If you are running on Oracle Engineered Systems, or Oracle Public Cloud, you are already running on Oracle Linux and Oracle VM. Why not implement it elsewhere in your infrastructure.
  • We have announced Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux R2- that simplifies deployment and administration by leveraging docker-based containers for deployment and upgrades
  • Oracle Linux and Oracle VM is certified and supported by all the major partners 

I would like to end with an article that sums it all: Larry Ellison's World View: 7 Observations Straight From The Hip

See you all at the next  Oracle OpenWorld, September 18-22, 2016.

Friday Spotlight: Start Reserving Your Spots in Oracle OpenWorld 2015 Sessions

Happy Friday!

With Oracle OpenWorld 2015 a little over a month away, it's time to start figuring out which sessions you're going to attend! You can start putting your schedule together today with My Schedule (if you're an OpenWorld veteran, this was called "Schedule Builder" in previous years). And of course, we hope you join us in several of our sessions and hands on labs about Oracle Linux, Oracle VM, and Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux.

To make it a little easier to find content that is interesting to you, we have two "Focus On" documents that you can have a look at and bookmark. The Focus On docs format really nicely on mobile devices, and are updated in real-time in case rooms change or anything else unforeseen happens, so they are a great resource to have bookmarked on your phone.


Since Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux spans both Oracle Linux and Oracle virtualization, you'll find those sessions in both.

We'll go into more detail in the coming weeks, but I'd like to highlight a couple of sessions to start with. Even if you can't join us in any other sessions, I highly recommend signing up for the General Sessions from Senior Vice President Linux and Virtualization Wim Coekaerts. These are always our most popular sessions, and it's a fantastic opportunity to get the very latest information on industry trends and the direction of Oracle's Linux and virtualization teams.

General Session: Oracle Linux—the State of the Penguin [GEN9479]
Wim Coekaerts, Senior Vice President, Oracle
Tuesday, Oct 27, 11:00 a.m. | Park Central—Metropolitan II

General Session: How Oracle Linux and Virtualization Power the Cloud [GEN9486]
Wim Coekaerts, Senior Vice President, Oracle
