I wanted to draw your attention this week to a new resource kit entitled OracleVM-Foundation for Private Cloud. It's an easy to access one stop shop for everything related to Oracle VM and private cloud. In it, you'll find white papers, an eBook, an analyst report, cost calculator, and more. I hope you enjoy looking through it and we'll see you next week!
The June 2014 edition of the Oracle Virtualization newsletter is now available! Learn about Oracle VM, Oracle Linux, and OpenStack, new Oracle VM Templates, a fantastic webcast on enterprise-scale deployments, content from Oracle partners, and much more.
Oracle VM is designed with the application in mind. In addition to the hypervisor and abstraction of the hardware, server virtualization has to enable rapid deployment of applications and integrated management for the entire stack from hypervisor to OS including applications.
Learn about Oracle VM, Oracle VM Manager, Oracle VM Server for x86 and Oracle VM Server for SPARC by taking the Oracle VM training course suited to your platform. These courses are available as live-virtual events where you can attend a live event from your own desk, no travel required. You can choose a live-virtual event from the events on the schedule to suit different timezones.
You can also attend training by travelling to an education center. Below is a selection of the in-class events already on the schedule for Oracle VM training.
Please join Oracle Executives Mark Hurd, Wim Coekaerts, and Scott Genereux as they announce the latest Virtual Compute Appliance. Discover how the Virtual Compute Appliance delivers virtualized application infrastructure and how it differentiates from other converged infrastructure solutions.
Today's Spotlight is about what promises to be an information packed webcast next week. We're really excited about it and hope that you are, too!
