Oracle workloads are one of the most critical workloads running in the datacenter. But how do you ensure that you can cost-effectively meet your Oracle database and application demands today, while providing seamless scalability for tomorrow as your business grows?
Yesterday's technology can't keep up with the performance, availability, scalability, and data protection needs of Oracle workloads in the modern enterprise. Today's best-of-breed integrated infrastructure for Oracle includes advancements in the hypervisor, server, and storage layers of the infrastructure stack, as well as optimizations at the OS level to enable easy-to-implement low cost but high performing Oracle deployments.
ATTENTION : This event is now cancelled, it will be rescheduled at a later date. We will keep you posted in this blog.
If you are in New York area don't miss this great workshop!
