Oracle is one of the biggest contributors to Linux but it’s also at the forefront of exploring what is possible with cloud computing and containers, including integrations with Docker and contributions to the Open Container Initiative.
This year Oracle is sponsoring LinuxCon North America and Wim Coekaerts, Sr.VP Oracle Linux and Virtualization Engineering will be keynote speaker. He will be talking at the event specifically about how the cloud revolution is changing the role of the operating system, a very relevant topic for attendees. Amanda McPherson of Linux Foundation, spoke to Wim at Oracle’s campus in Redwood Shores a few weeks ago, and in this short video preview, Wim tells if the operating system still matters in a world of virtualization and containers and how that impacts application development.
