As I have posted here, my talk at VMworld is on! I will be speaking on Monday at noon and Thursday at 10:30 a.m., so you have two opportunities to come see my talk.
Again, the session is titled:
Creating an Internal Oracle Database Cloud Using vSphere
The general thrust of the session is to lay out the advantages of VMware vSphere for creating an internal Oracle database cloud, compared to other methods (notably Oracle RAC) for doing so. As I will point out, each have their place, and I will layout the usage cases where RAC makes sense, as well as those where vSphere is a better call.
I will also look at the market space for Oracle compared to the so-called Database 2.0 vendors, and generally discuss the internal (also known as private) cloud as compared to the external cloud.
I will have a surprise as well: There will be a customer case study presented during my talk. I am not going to tell you here who the customer is; you will have to come see the session to find that out! But it will be very enlightening to say the least. An actual customer experience in deploying a rich application environment on vSphere, and how that experience produced real benefits for their business.
I look forward to seeing you all there.
