April 16 Webcast: Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance

At last year's Oracle OpenWorld, we introduced the Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance, or "OVCA" for short, an engineered system designed to radically simplify virtual deployments of Windows, Linux or Oracle Solaris general purpose workloads.  By engineering together unique technology such as our x86 systems, Oracle Virtual Networking, Oracle VM and Oracle VM Templates, we deliver a solution that you can take from power-on to production in about an hour -- a significant advantage compared to competing offerings.

We've got an opportunity coming up for you to learn more: a webcast, with the very direct title "Simplify your cloud deployment with Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance."  In a 60 minute session, you'll hear from Charlie Boyle and Premal Savla, who will take you through the advantages in time, simplified management, and consolidation in using OVCA in your IT infrastructure.

Register today, join us on Wednesday April 16th, and find out more about Oracle's "wire once" engineered system designed to speed your cloud deployments.

Down to the Wire - Yet More Solaris Things to See at OpenWorld (and JavaOne!)

San Francisco is bracing for the annual invasion. The airport's jammed, the tweets are flying, and the numbers are crazy: more than 50,000 attendees and 2,500+ sessions, taking over Moscone Convention Center, two streets, Union Square, and seemingly every hotel in town (98,000 hotel room nights).

So yeah, it's busy.

And it's not just OpenWorld--we've also got JavaOne, MySQL Connect, and four other sub-events going on as well.

Speaking of JavaOne, you can find Solaris-related activity there, too -- I've highlighted one hands-on lab below.

Here's a last pre-event roundup of activities for consideration; enjoy the show(s)!

(Remember, Schedule Builder is your friend; use it with the session numbers below to register.)

Monday, October 1st:

3:15 PM - General Session: Accelerate Your Business with the Oracle Hardware Advantage
(GEN9691, Moscone North Hall D)

John Fowler, head of Oracle's Systems organization, will talk about Oracle hardware technology and how it's co-engineered with other key technologies, including Oracle Solaris.

Tuesday, October 2nd:

10:15 AM - Building an IaaS Platform with SPARC, Oracle Solaris 11, and Oracle VM Server for SPARC
(CON4431, Moscone South 270)

Get the birds-eye lowdown (whatever that means) on how U.S. Cellular  built its Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud delivery platform with Oracle’s SPARC T4 servers, Oracle Solaris 11, Oracle Solaris Cluster 4, and Oracle VM Server for SPARC. The session covers the high-level design, business case made, implementation details, and lessons learned.

11:45 AM - Oracle Solaris 11 Panel: Insights and Directions from Oracle Solaris Core Engineering
(CON8790, Moscone South 252)

This has been one of the livelier Solaris-related sessions in years past (and I'm not saying that just because I get to moderate it this year). A panel of core engineers responsible for a wide range of key Solaris technologies will talk about some of the interesting work they've been doing -- but mostly we keep time open for the panel to take questions from attendees, because that's the fun part.

Wednesday, October 3rd:

10:00 AM - Tracing Your Java Application Tuning on Oracle Solaris with DTrace
(HOL10214, Hilton San Francisco, Franciscan A/B/C/D)

This JavaOne hands-on lab will show how to use the DTrace framework to dynamically trace your Java applications on Oracle Solaris and uncover new tuning opportunities.

Thursday, October 4th:

12:45 PM - Oracle Solaris 11: Optimized for Oracle Database, Oracle WebLogic Server, and Java
(CON8800, Moscone South 252)

Explore how Oracle Solaris 11 has been built to be the best platform for the cloud and enterprise applications, with built-in optimizations to improve performance and deliver unique functionality with Oracle Database, Oracle WebLogic Server, and Java.
