Realizing that it has been a long time since I blogged (the past few months have been crazy), much of interest has happened. EMC continues to make significant inroads into the NAS / Oracle database storage market, in competition with NetApp, which delights me. I was a speaker at VMworld 2009 earlier this month, speaking on VMware virtualization of Oracle database servers. And, of course, OOW looms, for which I am a demo captain and responsible for a major EMC high-end NAS demo as well as a speaker in the VMware booth.
In this regard, I have a couple of questions for you:
- How many of you are doing actual virtualization of Oracle database servers with VMware? I really need to hear from you. EMC is doing quite a bit of work in the area of VMware virtualization, and some of that will be present at OOW.
- How many of you are using EMC NAS with Oracle? I know about some of you, but not all. If you are using this combination, please comment to this blog. Let us know of your experiences, please.
I promise to be more vocal, and less remote, in the next few weeks as we approach OOW. I will be at the show, obviously, and very much look forward to talking to many of you live. Please come by the booth and say hello.
