EMC and Oracle Get Down To Business at Oracle OpenWorld

It should be no surprise to know that EMC Corporation and Oracle have a strong alliance built on a long-term relationship which drive a significant systems business for Oracle.  But what might be news is to see how these two companies have closely collaborated to drive technology integration and best practices around joint solutions for Oracle SPARC systems.  Just a few examples include their joint efforts around LDoms (Oracle VM Server for SPARC), and new feature integration with Oracle Solaris 11.2.  

Watch this short video filmed at Oracle OpenWorld this year to see how this technology collaboration is providing significant advantage to our customers.

You're invited : Solaris 11.2 Launch, Apr 29th, NYC

Please join Mark Hurd, John Fowler and Markus Flierl for the global launch of Oracle Solaris 11.2 on April 29, 2014 in New York City. Oracle Solaris 11.2 adds new capabilities in advanced virtualization, software-defined networking (SDN) and OpenStack support to the enterprise-grade Solaris operating system already known for its unmatched scalability, reliability and security.

Thanks to the robust and guaranteed Solaris Binary Compatibility, our ISV partners and their customers have been able over the years to right away enjoy the new run-time features that each release of Solaris brings to market. Which Solaris 11.2 feature will be the killer feature that most customers will quickly adopt? Time will tell but I have my own idea...

SAS and Oracle - Partnering Innovation on Big Data and Cloud

Oracle was a Platinum sponsor of the 39th SAS Global Forum, which took place at the Gaylord Convention Center, Washington DC on March 23-26th with a record attendance of over 4,500 attendees. SAS Global Forum is the annual gathering of SAS professionals, and has been happening every year since 1976. Here is the Opening Keynote by CEO Jim Goodnight  —good overview in Dr. Goodnight’s 10-minute opening. The theme of this year's conference was celebrating the “potential of one, power of all” around the potential to turn a single data discovery into a better way of doing business.

Oracle’s Platinum sponsorship centered around the partnership with SAS to deliver the convergence of In-Memory and In-Database cloud platforms, for which Oracle’s Engineered Systems are providing unprecedented performance and scalability in SAS environments. Oracle had 2 main conference presentations, 2 SAS partner showcase opportunities and booth tech talks around this theme. David Lawler, Oracle SVP Product Management and Strategy, and Paul Kent, SAS VP Big Data, presented on SAS and Oracle: Big Data and Cloud – Partnering Innovation Targets the Third Platform. Paul and David shared their strategic insight into how SAS High-Performance Analytics solutions are tackling today’s big data challenges and requisite union to “data-optimized cloud platforms”.

The benefits of the collaborative effort between SAS and Oracle enable joint customers to realize tangible value by analyzing all their data, quickly, safely and with the necessary agility to reduce time to insight. As evidence of the SAS and Oracle partnership producing results for customers, a large banking institution in Latin America presented a solution of a global SAS deployment on Oracle SPARC M5 servers. This solution provided the bank impressive scalability for Analytics with 5,000 SAS users consolidating over 50 Oracle Databases onto the same system with a 70% reduction in processors and a 30% performance improvement.


How open innovation and technology adoption translates to business value, with stories from our developer support work at Oracle's ISV Engineering.
