Enterprises are rapidly embracing cloud services to speed innovation and drive cost savings.  Innovative IT organizations are leaping to software-defined ‘virtual data centers’ that enable corporate IT to connect, aggregate, and configure computing resources public and private in unprecedented ways.  For many companies, private cloud infrastructure that can run existing applications as well as cloud-native applications are an attractive alternative to re-writing their existing applications to run in a public cloud.

Join this webinar to hear:
- How to create and agile private cloud infrastructure that can grow with your company
- Strategies and benefits to implement an open source cloud environment
- Benefits of using converged infrastructure in cloud

    Friday Spotlight: Start Reserving Your Spots in Oracle OpenWorld 2015 Sessions

    Happy Friday!

    With Oracle OpenWorld 2015 a little over a month away, it's time to start figuring out which sessions you're going to attend! You can start putting your schedule together today with My Schedule (if you're an OpenWorld veteran, this was called "Schedule Builder" in previous years). And of course, we hope you join us in several of our sessions and hands on labs about Oracle Linux, Oracle VM, and Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux.

    To make it a little easier to find content that is interesting to you, we have two "Focus On" documents that you can have a look at and bookmark. The Focus On docs format really nicely on mobile devices, and are updated in real-time in case rooms change or anything else unforeseen happens, so they are a great resource to have bookmarked on your phone.



    Since Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Linux spans both Oracle Linux and Oracle virtualization, you'll find those sessions in both.

    We'll go into more detail in the coming weeks, but I'd like to highlight a couple of sessions to start with. Even if you can't join us in any other sessions, I highly recommend signing up for the General Sessions from Senior Vice President Linux and Virtualization Wim Coekaerts. These are always our most popular sessions, and it's a fantastic opportunity to get the very latest information on industry trends and the direction of Oracle's Linux and virtualization teams.

    General Session: Oracle Linux—the State of the Penguin [GEN9479]
    Wim Coekaerts, Senior Vice President, Oracle
    Tuesday, Oct 27, 11:00 a.m. | Park Central—Metropolitan II

    General Session: How Oracle Linux and Virtualization Power the Cloud [GEN9486]
    Wim Coekaerts, Senior Vice President, Oracle
    Tuesday, Oct 27, 4:00 p.m. | Park Central—Metropolitan II

    We hope to see you out in San Francisco this year!

    Friday Spotlight: Why Oracle VM is Best for Oracle Database

    Happy Friday!

    This week I wanted to bring your attention to a white paper you might have missed. You'll hear us talk about application-driven virtualization a lot, but how does that actually work with a large application? Say, the Oracle Database? The white paper below goes in-depth on that question and describes the cross-stack integration that makes Oracle VM the best platform for Oracle Database. Give it a read and have a great weekend!

    Why Oracle VM is the Best Platform for Deploying Oracle Database
