Friday Spotlight: DevOps and the Cloud

One of the biggest and most exciting trends we've been seeing amongst customers, and the industry as a whole, is the parallel rise of DevOps and Microservices for cloud development. Linux, virtualization and of course Docker have become the key foundational elements for these next generation Cloud Native application architectures, whether deployed on-premise or in the public cloud.

We've had some exciting announcements here too in the Virtualization and Linux teams with more to come. Most recently we've just launched the Oracle Container Registry where you can pull many of Oracle's software platforms including MySQL, Oracle Database 12c, Oracle WebLogic and of course Oracle Linux itself.

If you want to get started with some light DevOps and Infrastructure as Code check out the Oracle DevOps Blog. We have a new and developing series using the ever popular Oracle VM VirtualBox with Vagrant as a Docker foundation.

Developers have always been critical constituents for Oracle, and we're rolling out a worldwide Developer and DevOps-centric roadshow, Oracle Code.  Sign up to be notified when the Oracle Code registration opens for your location.

Friday Spotlight: Why Choose Oracle for Your Private Cloud Infrastructure?

Walking out of the business review meeting, you feel great. You've just found out that you now have a budget to purchase a private cloud infrastructure. Getting the money was the easy part. Now comes the hard part: selection, evaluation and decision.

Let’s start with your requirements: First, you need a private cloud infrastructure that will run the Oracle database and Oracle applications your company is using to run the business. There are few choices in the market. Which one should you choose?

Second, you have heard about private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid cloud. Your company can’t move to public cloud right now. You need to plan for the consolidation of many physical servers first, virtualize to reduce costs and then plan for whichever cloud deployment that will not disrupt the business and profitability of your company. So, which cloud deployment to start?


Third, you have also read about cool new technologies like Docker and Openstack. You would like to explore those technologies and see how they fit into your cloud journey. Where can you learn about this?

While deliberating on these requirements, you see an invite to attend a webcast: Why Choose Oracle for Your Private Cloud Infrastructure? Glancing at the content, you find that this webcast may answer some of your questions. If you attend the webcast, you will:

- Get clarity among different cloud infrastructure options

- Learn how Oracle is using cutting edge technologies, such as Docker and Openstack

- Hear why customers choose Oracle Private Cloud Appliance over other converged infrastructure vendors

There is a live chat, so you can ask the speakers questions to help you in the selection process.

Why not spend an hour to get your answers? You click on the Registration button and mark on your calendar March 8th, 11:00 A.M. Pacific Standard Time.

May be the selection process won’t be so difficult after all.
