Oracle OpenWorld Kicks Off with Larry Ellison Keynote

Welcome to Oracle
OpenWorld 2014!!!!
Larry Ellison,
Executive Chairman and CTO of Oracle Corp kicked off the start of the
conference week Sunday night with a discussion of new Oracle Cloud services and product offerings.

couple of key points from Larry’s talk on Oracle’s cloud strategy, Oracle’s
focus is to enable the customer to preserve their existing investments in both
hardware and software. Oracle’s strategy
is to make it an easy transition to a cloud model, with an integrated stack
that works together. So as your business
needs evolves over time, your IT infrastructure is positioned to evolve with
you. One very interesting example Larry
showed was the ability to literally move or “unplug” an existing on-premise
database and take it to the Oracle Cloud and “plug” it in there, using the
Oracle Multitenant capability. This
incredible ease of moving your application AND your data to the cloud heralds a
new whole world for your business.

addition, Larry focused on the platform strength of the Oracle offering for
cloud; it’s the same platform Oracle uses internally for its own applications
development, plus its own public cloud offering, powers 9 out of 10 of the top
SaaS providers, and provides the most robust database and application server
available. An important aspect of that
is exactly that Oracle uses the same platform itself, thereby making moving
applications or data between on premises and cloud environments transparent and

A further
announcement Larry made was of the general availability of
Oracle’s Zero Data Loss
Recovery Appliance, the world's first and only engineered system designed
specifically for database protection. This massively scalable appliance
delivers unparalleled data protection, automation, efficiency and
scalability. The cloud-scale
architecture enables a single Recovery Appliance to manage the data protection
requirements of thousands of databases, avoiding the cost and complexity of
disparate backup systems. The automation
eliminates the human error aspect of implementing a backup and recovery

In other cloud news,
Oracle’s complete cloud strategy was presented to a packed room on Monday
morning, showing both the private cloud as well as the public cloud
capability.  For private cloud, Oracle
provides a complete solution spanning servers, storage, database, middleware,
integration technologies and of course the complete management of the entire
stack as well as the cloud lifecycle.
