Demo of Virtual Datacenter - 3D and Web

Yesterday, I attended a demo that World2Worlds conducted for a few folks at Oracle about the virtual datacenter that Sun marketing created in Second Life (you can visit the current Oracle/Sun island in Second Life to see the dataceter).

The demo was great but was also great was that the the Oracle participants, except for me, were attending via the web and did so in just a few clicks and could full see and participate. It was great! I actually attended in 3D and on the web!

We used the World2Worlds Immersive Virtual Event (IVE) process which they are using for the upcoming Heartland GreenUp IT Symposium - access to the virtual component of this event in May is free and Oracle is speaking about Sustainability to Drive Operational Efficiency! Details here.

Oracle in Virtual Worlds

Just a quick update on the state of the Sun spaces in Second Life and the transition of them to Oracle. Oracle will be keeping the current 3 islands in Second Life. The projects and strategy will be created over time so keep tabs on this blog.

The Employee Space for Oracle employees (see below) is being managed by Oracle's Organization & Talent Development group. There are no major activities planned at this time but discussions are happening. If groups have a need to use the platform, they are welcome to use it for employee facing projects. We will continue to have our core team of passionate employees from across the organization meet to discuss ideas and projects and manage a central calendar of activities as things begin to surface. We are also transitioning the SunMicrosystems family name to OracleCorp.

The public spaces are being managed by Oracle Corporate Marketing - no major activities are on the calendar at this time but stay tuned as the interest and strategy evolves.
