September 23, 2011 - 0 Comments

I recently wrote about our participation to Oracle OpenWorld 2011, highlighting John Chambers key note speech and the importance of Cisco and Oracle partnership

Yesterday I talked with one of the Cisco experts on Oracle , John McAbel – John will have a speaking session ((Session #9208)) with Oracle VM Product Management Director Ronen Kofman , and was kind enough to explain in front of the camera what it is about

Here is the extract of the session

Oracle VM provides users with an array of new capabilities to help manage and consolidate workloads as a first step to a cloud implementation. The underlying hardware must be architected to combine compute, network, and storage elements balanced correctly to help ensure maximum performance.

Oracle VM on the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) represents a proven path toward moving to the benefits of cloud computing. The features of Oracle VM will be aligned to capabilities of the Cisco UCS to deliver an affordable, performing, reliable solution to protect and separate data workload from system resources. This session will highlight reference architectures, validation testing, and the response of primary customers. Cloud computing: are you ready?
