Today was nothing short of action-packed in the OPN Lounge. We saw a steady flow of OPN In Focus Session attendees (registration totaled more than 500 this year!), video interviews with award-winning partners, Demand Gen Rally Station consultations and Q&As taking place at Information Station kiosks.
As for main-stage conversations, this morning’s keynote from Oracle EVP Dave Donatelli captured the essence of Oracle’s Converged Infrastructure strategy. Dave noted that our on-premises solutions have a, “cloud insurance policy” and can be anything customers want it to be. He also underscored how Oracle Private Cloud Appliance is a simple CI design for quick cloud deployments and consolidating Microsoft Windows, Linux and Oracle Solaris applications.
Oracle’s EVP & SVP of Systems John Fowler & Juan Loaiza followed Donatelli and discussed SPARC S7 and how the product is bringing advanced security, efficiency and simplicity to the cloud.
As the OPN Lounge winds down, we want to know: did you enjoy yourself this year? What did you think of the new OPN Lounge size and location? Anything you’d like to see next year? Leave us a comment below. OPN welcomes all feedback in the hopes to make OPN Central 2017 the best event yet.
Thanks for joining us at #oow16, partners, and we’ll see you tonight at beautiful AT&T Park for the Oracle Appreciation Event!
