A Look at the Hottest Stars at Oracle OpenWorld
By Tom Caldecott
It’s a busy scene outside Moscone North Hall D. In the center are the celebrities of Oracle OpenWorld. Pressing up against them are their enthusiastic fans, snapping photos, handing their cameras and smart phones to perfect strangers for the chance of a photo op standing next to their favorite stars.
“It's been like this throughout the show,” says a member of the celebrities’ entourage. “Larry Ellison talked about them in his keynote on Sunday and the people have been streaming in.”
Who are these celebrities? The new SPARC M6-32 and Oracle Database Backup Logging Recovery Appliance, as well as all the other Oracle Engineered Systems that can be found at the showcase in Moscone North.
This year, the showcase is filled from one end to the other with hardware—along with demo kiosks—that show how application issues can be solved with these Oracle solutions. In addition, the entourage—the technology experts—are available to answer questions.
According to the entourage, the systems are the best kind of celebrity. They bring in the crowds. They don’t take rest breaks. And they never ask for green M&M’s.
