Oracle Virtualization at Oracle OpenWorld 2013, Part 2

If you're attending Oracle OpenWorld 2013 (and we hope you are!), the Schedule Builder tool is now available for you. Schedule Builder lets you register for the sessions you want to attend during the show. If you're interested in Oracle Virtualization, there are a number of sessions, hands on labs, and product demos that will be interesting to you. I covered several of the sessions in part 1 of this series, and in this one I'm going to cover a few more sessions. In the 3rd part of this series, I'll cover the Hands On Labs and demo stations that you can visit.


What's New with Oracle VM Server for x86 and SPARC: A Technical Deep Dive (CON9544)
Oracle VM Server virtualization solutions provide users the best combination of price, performance, certification, and advanced features tailored for ease of deployment and management. Spanning both x86 and SPARC architectures, it's designed to support a diverse set of OS workloads such as Linux, Solaris, and Windows to meet the wide ranging demands of modern IT environments. Join us to get the latest technology updates on Oracle VM Server.

High Availability and Infrastructure Best Practices with Oracle VM (CON11258)
This session will provide practical details and best practices on building and scaling an Oracle VM environment for High Availability for Database and infrastructure best practices. From information gathering and planning to analyzing needs of your environment, you will learn to plan for growth in infrastructure components to accommodate failover, DR, HA and migration. This session will also cover the methods to reduce downtime during events like system upgrades and migration and troubleshooting during system outages.

And in the Develop track:

What's New in Oracle VM VirtualBox (CON9550)
Oracle VM VirtualBox is the world's most popular cross-platform virtualization software, with nearly 100 million downloads. Optimized to run on desktop systems, Oracle VM VirtualBox is an ideal choice for development and testing, and can help ease cross-platform headaches by allowing you to run multiple platforms on your laptop or PC. In this session Oracle experts will cover the latest advancements in Oracle VM VirtualBox, including information on features such as VM Groups, guest automation, resource controls, and more.


One of my favorite features for attendees of Oracle OpenWorld is the "Focus On" documents that group together similar content as kind of a quick reference guide. This year, Focus On documents are done with a cool dynamic web page, so any changes that happen in the next few weeks (for example, when the Hands On Labs signups open up in the next week or so, or if a session gets oversubscribed and is moved to a bigger room), the Focus On page will automatically update. So, please go here to have a look at the most up to date Focus on Virtualization, and then bookmark it for future reference:

Focus on Virtualization

This year's show is shaping up to be a big one! Most of the folks that post on this blog will be there along with a large number of folks from the Oracle virtualization team, and we're very excited to meet you in person!
