If you're looking at implementing a private cloud, we have a live seminar series that could be really helpful for you. Over the next couple of weeks in Calgary, Vancouver, and Toronto, you can attend a free seminar that will help you learn about Oracle's complete cloud infrastructure solution, including Oracle Linux and Oracle VM.
One really unique thing about these seminars is that they are divided into morning and afternoon sessions. In the morning, you'll get a complete overview of the solution with use cases, deployment ideas, architecture discussion and so on. And if you are a hands-on technical type, you can stay for the afternoon session which features a hands-on lab of Oracle Ksplice on Oracle Linux and a live demo of Oracle RAC deployed using an Oracle VM Template.
These should be fantastic events, please attend if you are in the area and available!
