130+ Tech Tip Videos

Oracle Technology Network’s 2 Minute Tech Tip video series began with a simple idea: have members of the Oracle Technology Network and Oracle ACE communities dispense their best advice—but in no more than about two minutes.

Launched in August 2014 and hosted by Oracle Technology Network Architect Community Manager Bob Rhubart, the video program recently saw the release of its 130th installment. Take advantage of the wealth of bite-size information, and see explorations on larger business and organizational culture challenges.

Announcing the Oracle Infrastructure Blog

If you’re interested in learning more about the here and now and the future of Oracle hardware and Oracle Cloud infrastructure services, check out the recently launched Oracle Infrastructure Blog. Featuring exclusive contributions, expert tips, and product tours from Oracle leaders— including Chuck Hollis, Oracle’s senior vice president for converged infrastructure systems— the blog covers topics ranging from Oracle’s processor architecture to the latest public and private cloud deployment approaches.

One suggested starting point: IT decisionmakers and system architects should read Hollis’ comprehensive backgrounder on Oracle engineered storage, which delves into the technical reasons why Oracle provides Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance, the Oracle All Flash FS1 array, and Oracle ZFS Backup Appliance, among other tools and options.
