Attending Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco is like walking through the famed FAO Schwarz toy store or the LEGO store. There are so many cool and fantastic products that wow you. If you are on a mission to find your cloud-in-a-box at this conference, let the Hero 6 team help you navigate through the sea of 60,000 people and thousands of sessions.
Meet Hero #1: ICA AB Group,
one of the largest retail companies in the Nordics region, covering Norway,
Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
On Monday October 26th morning, you attend the Private Cloud Appliance Roadmap and Insights from Engineering [CON8762] at the Intercontinental Hotel. Hero #1 explains how Oracle Private Cloud Appliance was used to set the new benchmark within ICA and how this Engineered System became the “standard platform” for all database and application deployments.
You run into Hero #2: Atos Nederland B.V., an international leader in digital services and Worldwide IT Partner for the Olympic Games.
Always a fan of the Olympic games, you attend the Atos Virtual Oracle Computing Hotel: Private Cloud Appliance in a Flexible Service Wrapper [CON7886] to hear Hero #2 talk about how he created the “Virtual Oracle Computing (VOC) Hotel" with Oracle Private Cloud Appliance. The VOC hotel offers guests 4 different room sizes and aligns Oracle license cost with the CPU cores you actually use.
On Tuesday October 27th, you want to hear about Oracle’s Virtualization vision and attend the General Session: How Oracle Linux and Virtualization Power the Cloud [GEN9486] with Senior VP Wim Coekaerts. This General Session takes place at the Park Central hotel.
You then hurry over to the Intercontinental Hotel to meet Hero #3: Secure-24, a leading Service Provider in North America.
During the session Transforming Application Delivery with Private Cloud Appliance [CON2528], Hero #3 will discuss how Oracle Private Cloud Appliance combined with Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance helped this hero achieve performance improvements while reducing delivery costs by 90 percent for Oracle workloads running on both Linux and Windows.
Still in pursuit of your cloud-in-a-box, you go back to the Intercontinental hotel on Wednedsday October 28th to meet Hero #4: Xait, a leader in Oil and Gas Collaborative Authoring Solutions with headquarter in Norway.
And Hero #5: Tier1, a North American consulting and support organization
In the Real-World Insight: Private Cloud Appliance in Action [CON8765], you hear about best practices and learnings from these vastly different heroes when they deployed Oracle Private Cloud Appliance for a range of traditional and cloud workloads.
Happy with what you have heard from 5 different customers, you head off to the Oracle Customer Appreciation Event to hear the music of Elton John and Beck while enjoying the 360-degree views of the San Francisco and Oakland skylines.
Ah, on the last day of the conference Thursday October 29th, you go to Moscone South to meet the last Hero: Accenture Enkitec Group
Hero #6 provides the last use-case in the session on Private Cloud Appliance and Oracle Exadata for High-Volume Financial Services Systems [CON5175].
