Friday Spotlight, Post Oracle OpenWorld Edition

Happy Friday, everyone! Hopefully you were in San Francisco with us for this amazing Oracle OpenWorld 2013 week. From the many announcements regarding Oracle virtualization and Oracle Linux, to the sessions, hands on labs, and demos, to the excitement of the America's Cup, it has been an amazing week!

We'll go into a lot more detail in the coming weeks, but I wanted to provide some quick links to announcements during the show:

- On Monday, Lenovo announced that their ThinkServer portfolio of products has been tested and certified with Oracle VM and Oracle Linux. Read the news release.

- Also on Monday, Nimble Storage announced their new SmartStack solution that leverages Oracle VM and Oracle Linux. Read the news release.

- On Wednesday, Dell announced that Dell and Oracle are building on their relationship to enhance customer experience. This includes reaffirming the agreement that allows customers to purchase and renew support for Oracle VM and Oracle Linux from Dell, simplifying the point of contact for customers. Read the news release or watch the keynote.

It's been a great week here and we're looking forward to another exciting year!

Nimble Storage Introduces SmartStack Solution leveraging Oracle Linux and Oracle VM

Nimble Storage today announced a new SmartStack™ converged infrastructure solution leveraging Oracle Linux, Oracle VM, and Oracle Database, running on Cisco Unified Computing System™ (UCS). This solution provides organizations with the ability to meet Oracle Database performance demands and scale without disruption or increased capital expenses.

Highlights of the SmartStack Validated Reference Architecture with Oracle

- The new solution is fully tested and validated using both Oracle Validated Configuration test kit and Nimble Storage’s test environments.

- The solution components include a Nimble Storage CS-series array, two Cisco UCS B200 M3 blade servers, Oracle VM 3.2, Oracle Linux 6 Update 4 with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, and Oracle Database 11g Release 2 and Oracle Database 12c.

Nimble Storage’s intelligent flash-based architecture allows customers with Oracle workloads running on Oracle Linux and Oracle VM to take advantage of:

- Adaptive performance to easily grow performance and/or capacity to scale to the needs of OLTP and OLAP applications as they grow - Ease of deployment with pre-configured optimizations and performance profiles to minimize the guesswork of tuning the infrastructure for performance

- Integrated data protection and enhanced availability enabling organizations to take more frequent backups without disrupting applications, and facilitate quick recovery with Nimble Storage snapshots

Nimble Storage will exhibit its flash-optimized hybrid storage arrays and new converged infrastructure solutions at Oracle OpenWorld 2013 taking place September 22 – 26 at Moscone Center in San Francisco. You can check Nimble Storage solutions in the Oracle Linux and Virtualization Pavilion - booth #2021.
