Mini-Series Entry 3 of 3: Server Virtualization Sessions
This is the third entry of a three part mini-series looking at Oracle server and desktop virtualization at Oracle OpenWorld 2012.
In our previous entries, we covered the Oracle Virtualization keynote session, hands on labs, and desktop virtualization sessions. Below are four key sever virtualization sessions for you to enjoy at this year's Oracle OpenWorld.
Session ID: CON6814
Ready to get more value from your server virtualization investment? In this practical session, experts from Verizon and Oracle explain how to get the real benefits of IT flexibility, agility, and efficiency by using server virtualization while saving time and money and avoiding hassles. Discover tips and tricks for using Oracle VM 3, Oracle Linux, and Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c to rapidly deploy enterprise applications in hours or days instead of weeks. Learn about innovations for automating all deployment functions, and hear about best practices for configuring and managing networks and storage. The session will help you save time and money, reduce data center errors, and help you realize the full potential of server virtualization.
Session ID: CON8487
The latest generation of Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) and database technology provides an agile database deployment infrastructure optimized for running on bare metal hardware. The same architecture can be used on Oracle VM to further benefit from template-based deployments or virtualization-based environments in general. Attend this session to understand the key considerations for transitioning to or running Oracle RAC in an Oracle VM-based environment. The session includes a live demo showing how the new deploy cluster tool streamlines deployment of Oracle RAC.

Many IT organizations need different OS and hardware to address stringent service levels and meet competitive pressures. Oracle VM enterprise-class server virtualization offers a high-performance architecture and the broadest workload support. It provides server virtualization for Oracle's x86 and SPARC architectures plus tight integration support for OSs such as Linux, Oracle Solaris, and Windows. Oracle VM Server virtualization gives users the best combination of price, performance, certification, and advanced features to make the entire software/hardware stack for enterprise applications easier to deploy, manage, and support. This session covers the latest Oracle VM technology updates and transforming your data center to the next level of efficiency while reducing operating costs.
Session ID: CON8734
Virtualization has changed how IT delivers information and business services. As IT organizations migrate from traditional computing data centers to cloud-based infrastructures, traditional virtualization offers only part of what the migration requires. Stacks of enterprise applications driving crucial business services and management orchestrations-hardware to software to cloud-based services-are fundamental ingredients of a successful migration. This session covers Oracle's virtualization and management offering: Oracle VM, its integration with Oracle Linux, and cloud control/lifecycle management with Oracle Enterprise Manager. See how the Oracle VM/Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder 11g integration can help you simplify and standardize enterprise application deployment to the cloud.
Session ID: CON8735
You've consolidated your server farms-mail servers-but what about enterprise application workloads, database, business apps? These are crucial and are running on Oracle Solaris, Linux, and Windows. How hard is it to manage this application sprawl? This session shows the benefit of Oracle VM for virtualizing Oracle and how Oracle VM Templates have foundational tools for speeding enterprise application workload virtualization for rapid deployment of applications such as Oracle Database and Oracle's Siebel Customer Relationship Management. You'll learn about recipes for deploying applications with more than 90 predefined Oracle VM Templates for your Oracle applications, in minutes, not days or hours. You'll also hear how to manage virtualized application sprawl with Oracle Enterprise Manager.
Session ID: CON7393
Cloud computing can be implemented in several ways: public, private, hybrid, or community. To add to the deployment choices, cloud computing services can be offered as infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), or software as a service (SaaS), with or without full self-service capabilities. This session lays down the foundations for business cases for going to the cloud, using key common drivers and common use cases.
- Core competency
- Portfolio rationalization
- Infrastructure consolidation
As we get closer to the event, we'll do another post on the virtualization product demos you'l be able to see at the show. And remember, there are over 1,700 more Oracle OpenWorld sessions in the content catalog.
We look forward to seeing you at Oracle OpenWorld 2012 on September 30th!
