Solaris at OOW 2013
I'm looking forward to Oracle Open World in a couple of weeks from now. It's always a super-productive time for me where I get to interact with a large number of customers and partners in and end up learning a lot about how they use our products and which direction they are going.
There will be a number of sessions as well as Hands-on Labs specifically focused on Solaris. During my keynote on Monday at 12:15pm I'll have an executive from a major US mobile provider joining me and talking about how they are taking advantage of Solaris 11 and the latest T5 hardware to run their IaaS cloud. I'll be talking about how we are taking Solaris from a traditional server OS to a full-fledged cloud platform which also includes the OS virtualization, the network virtualization/ SDN and also the integration with Storage. I'll also cover how we are leveraging industry-standard cloud management solutions for running Solaris-based SaaS, PaaS and IaaS clouds. Last but not least I'll be talking about some of the investments we are making to ensure that Solaris/SPARC is the best platform for Oracle, not just from a performance, but also from an observability, reliability as well as administrative point of view.
