Friday Spotlight: Celebrating Easter and a Week of Great Announcements

Hi everyone,

Today is Good Friday, happy Easter to those celebrating around the world. It is one of my favorite holidays with family gatherings, egg hunts, Easter bunnies and chocolate! If you want to know how bunnies and eggs fit to this holiday here's a great article in The Telegraph explaining everything you need to know.  

For us it was a busy week with announcement of Oracle Cloud Machine yesterday. Oracle Cloud Machine is the newest Oracle engineered systems offering. It allows customers to deploy and consume Oracle Cloud IaaS and PaaS in data centers "behind their own firewalls". This is interesting primarily because it diverges from the traditional "private cloud" strategy. Nirav Mehta, Oracle's VP of Product Management, candidly discussed some of the issues in trying to build a true private cloud. The underlying OS is Oracle Linux, of course! Read more here.

There was also  Oracle VM 3.4 announcement yesterday which has following key enhancements and features:

  • Storage Live Migration
  • Virtual Appliance import and export
  • Oracle Ksplice support
  • Infrastructure updates to Oracle VM Server for x86 – Xen 4.4 and UEK4
  • Infrastructure update to Oracle VM Manager – WebLogic 12c and MySQL 5.6 
  • and more...

This week we have also released a new podcast - quick summary of the Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux - that we think you will find interesting. It provides an overview of the key features,  key MySQL components and availability enhancements.

Listen to the podcast

We also recommend subscribing to our podcasts (oracle linux feed) in iTunes.  

Have a great weekend and happy Easter!
