"Systems Central" at OOW13

This year, the Westin San Francisco Market Street is going to be the OpenWorld hub for engineered systems, server, and storage content, which includes both operating systems and virtualization.  We're thinking of it as "Systems Central."

This is where you'll find not only the bulk of the Oracle Solaris breakout sessions, but it's also where our Oracle Solaris engineers and executives will be making themselves available for one-on-one conversations before and after the sessions.

Protip: lunch will be served for attendees here, so this is a chance for you to get some quieter moments away from the throng, and hang out with Oracle Solaris developers after a less hectic meal.

The weather looks like it's going to be nice this year (70º in the city on Monday), so the short stroll from Moscone to the Westin will be a perfect prelude to a deep dive into Oracle Solaris content.

Oracle Solaris Web Forum -- Did You Miss It?

Image credit: WikimediaEarlier this week, we had the latest Oracle Solaris web forum.  Is it possible that you weren't there?  Was something more pressing on your agenda, such as, I don't know: work?  Or, if you're in a different time zone: sleep?

Did you, in fact, miss out on the whole thing?

No. No, you did not.

Thanks to the power of computers, the Internet, and our great behind-the-scenes teams, we now have the on-demand replay of the web forum available, for you to replayOn demand!

You can see all three sessions:

  • Oracle’s Investment in Oracle Solaris - Best Enterprise UNIX for Oracle Systems and Software
  • Oracle Solaris: Optimized for Oracle Software
  • Oracle Solaris: Optimized for Oracle’s Enterprise Systems

Plus, you'll have access to the transcripts from the live Q & A. If you're ready, we are, too:

Now You've Got Two Webcasts to Watch

That's right, I can see the shocked expression on your face: not one, but two webcasts, less than a week apart! If you need a note for your boss, let me know.

To recap: first, on August 7th at 9 AM PT, we're hosting the latest Oracle Solaris web forum, a great chance to learn what's new, especially since we'll be running a live Q&A throughout, where participants can ask questions directly to Oracle's Solaris experts.

Now, we've added a webcast on Tuesday, August 13.  Just to mix things up a little, that one starts an hour later, at 10 AM Pacific time.  Hosted by Oracle Senior Vice President Wim Coekarts, this one goes something like this:


The payoff here is the convergence of Oracle Virtual Networking and Oracle VM Server. Sign up today and tune in on the 13th to learn more.

And try not to look so surprised.

Since You Asked... A Couple of Oracle Solaris Resources

OK, you didn't ask (unless you in fact are Adix or Mark), but someone did -- as part of today's Twitter activity, we got to bring up two resources that I thought were worth sharing more broadly.

Mark was asking about moving from AIX to Solaris, and it turns out we have a recent document on just that: the IBM AIX to Oracle Solaris Technology Mapping Guide, subtitled "Preparing for the Move to Oracle Solaris 11". This is a 55-page technical white paper identifying and comparing the differences between AIX 7.1 and Oracle Solaris 11.

During today's webcast on Oracle Solaris on Oracle's x86 systems, we mentioned the bidirectional connection between Oracle Solaris and our x86 systems' service processors, and Adix wanted to know more.  There's a white paper on that, too: Oracle’s x86 Systems: The Best x86 Platforms for Oracle Solaris, where it covers, among other things, the "Oracle Solaris–Aware Service Processor" .

If you missed the webcast, by the way, it should be available for replay starting tomorrow morning it's now available for replay.

Webcast, Wednesday, Feb 13: Unleash Innovation with the Oracle Optimized Data Center

Cloud computing opens up new opportunities, but it doesn't eliminate the traditional challenges of managing a data center. In fact, it intensifies them. The Oracle Optimized Data Center provides a strategic roadmap for IT organizations to simplify infrastructures.

In Wednesday's webcast, you'll learn how to secure your data, apps, and cloud-based services, reduce deployment time by up to 75 percent, reduce risk, and meet and exceed service level agreements. You'll also hear from a customer's perspective how Oracle's optimized data center strategy influenced and improved their business.
