Friday Spotlight: Oracle OpenWorld Slide Decks

Happy Friday!

Every year after Oracle OpenWorld, many of the slide decks become available for you to download. If you were at these sessions, it's great to have these PDFs for reference, and if you weren't able to go, or had sessions overlapping, you can read the slides and get a sense of the key points.

You can find the slides from the Oracle OpenWorld 2014 Content Catalog. You can search for sessions that you'd like to download. Some good keywords are "Oracle Linux", "Oracle VM", "OpenStack", etc.

We'll see you next week!

Dell To Showcase Their Solution at Oracle Linux and Oracle Virtualization with OpenStack Showcase

Is your business being challenged to quickly and rapidly deploy critical enterprise applications?  Do you want to automatically provision entire application stacks instead of individual components? Imagine the advantages you can realize through integrated management of the complete IT stack including Oracle VM and the applications running inside the VM!

An example of such integration is the integration of Dell Compellent Live Volume and Oracle VM Live Migration capability, which can be effectively used for planned migration of virtual machines between homogeneous storage arrays with zero downtime. The migration across heterogeneous storage arrays is not so straightforward and a joint solution developed by Dell and Oracle to address this challenge will be demonstrated. You will have an opportunity to discuss other Dell storage solutions developed by Dell Storage Engineering Solutions team.  In addition, you will also learn about the zero downtime heterogeneous storage migration solution leveraging the Dell Software SharePlex database replication solution with ZeroIMPACT migration methodology.

Furthermore, Dell’s latest generation of PowerEdge servers have been certified for support on Oracle Linux and Oracle VM; similarly the PowerEdge Oracle Validated Configurations offer pre-tested and validated Dell/Oracle architectures that serve as an assurance for customers.

Join Dell at the Oracle Linux and Virtualization Showcase with OpenStack, at Oracle OpenWorld, for live demonstrations, and discuss how Dell can help you with Oracle solutions.
