Oracle Academy is offering an exciting opportunity to learn about the design principals behind the revolutionary Software in Silicon technology which is at the core of Oracle's SPARC M7 microprocessor chip design. In this LIVE panel discussion with senior executives from the software and hardware side of Oracle's systems business, you will gain insights into the strategy and thinking behind Oracle’s dramatic re-design of computer chip architecture, as well as be able to ask questions to be addressed live by the panel members.
Course Title: What Happens When Software Moves Into Silicon (Webinar Replay)
Target Audience: University students, Oracle customers & partners
Event Date: November 11, 2015
Event Time: 9:00-10:00am (Pacific Time)
Putting software onto the computer chip (Software in Silicon) is a revolutionary new technology which will fundamentally change the way computer systems are built in the future. For over five years now Oracle has been investing in improving the Oracle software applications by embedding software technology into the microprocessor -- for better performance, lower cost, higher system availability, and most important of all -- securing the cloud from intruders. Oracle processor engineers have worked closely with their software engineers, in particular the database experts, in hard-wiring capabilities specific to application processes and performance onto the processor—hence the “Software in Silicon” moniker. This webinar will explore what happens when software moves into silicon, as well as providing practical examples of innovative features this new technology brings to the market.
