Happy Friday! Our Friday Spotlight today is a bit unique in that we're putting the same information on both the Oracle Virtualization blog and the Oracle Linux blog. The reason is that we want to tell you about a fantastic opportunity for Oracle VM and Oracle Linux administrators.
On January 28, Oracle is hosting an event called Virtual Sysadmin Day. If you haven't attended one of these before, you're in for a treat. These events let you attend a virtual version of the hands on lab sessions that we run each year at Oracle OpenWorld. So, if you've ever wanted to go to one of those sessions but couldn't get to San Francisco or the other Oracle OpenWorld locations around the world, now is your chance to attend from the comfort of you desk!
The format is really cool. The materials for the lab are provided for you, you just need to have Oracle VM VirtualBox (it's a free download), and download the pre-configured virtual machines for the labs. You should do this ahead of the event, but all the information to help you do it is available to you when you register.
On the day of the event, you login and watch some intro content that sets up the labs, and then you follow the steps for the labs on you own system. Oracle experts will be in the chat area to help with issues you might run into.

Nimble Storage today announced a new SmartStack™ converged infrastructure solution leveraging Oracle Linux, Oracle VM, and Oracle Database, running on Cisco Unified Computing System™ (UCS). This solution provides organizations with the ability to meet Oracle Database performance demands and scale without disruption or increased capital expenses.
Highlights of the SmartStack Validated Reference Architecture with Oracle
- The new solution is fully tested and validated using both Oracle Validated Configuration test kit and Nimble Storage’s test environments.
- The solution components include a Nimble Storage CS-series array, two Cisco UCS B200 M3 blade servers, Oracle VM 3.2, Oracle Linux 6 Update 4 with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, and Oracle Database 11g Release 2 and Oracle Database 12c.
Nimble Storage’s intelligent flash-based architecture allows customers with Oracle workloads running on Oracle Linux and Oracle VM to take advantage of:
- Adaptive performance to easily grow performance and/or capacity to scale to the needs of OLTP and OLAP applications as they grow
- Ease of deployment with pre-configured optimizations and performance profiles to minimize the guesswork of tuning the infrastructure for performance
- Integrated data protection and enhanced availability enabling organizations to take more frequent backups without disrupting applications, and facilitate quick recovery with Nimble Storage snapshots
Nimble Storage will exhibit its flash-optimized hybrid storage arrays and new converged infrastructure solutions at Oracle OpenWorld 2013 taking place September 22 – 26 at Moscone Center in San Francisco. You can check Nimble Storage solutions in the Oracle Linux and Virtualization Pavilion - booth #2021.
