Register now for OTN’s new Virtual Technology Summit – September 16, 2015.

 

Hear from Oracle ACEs, Java Champions and Oracle Product Experts, as they share their insights and expertise through Hands-on-Labs, highly technical presentations and demos that enable you to master the skills you need to meet today’s IT challenges.  Chat live with folks and ask your questions as you attend sessions.

 

Operating Systems, Virtualization Technologies and Hardware Spotlight:  Implementing Your Cloud - Most IT organizations have roadmaps for cloud infrastructure.  Most vendors have some sort of story as to how they can get you to the cloud. Oracle specifically has itself to the idea that you can run your applications identically in our public cloud and your private cloud.  The question is: How?  In this track we’ll roll up our sleeves and show you how to implement your clouds using Oracle hardware, software, and best practices. There are four sessions in the Systems track:

 

  • Best Practices building efficient and secure cloud infrastructure - Learn how to create virtual machines(VMs), deploy VM's using Templates, rapidly migrate those VM's to the Cloud, and deploy Oracle Applications & Databases in minutes on a flexible, secure, Private Cloud Infrastructure. Additionally, experience Oracle's Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure with Oracle's Enterprise Manager-Cloud Control to automatically provision both Operating Systems and Oracle Databases in a DBaaS model.

 

  • What's New in Solaris 11.3 - Oracle Solaris 11 is a complete and secure cloud platform. With best of breed technologies for computer, networking and storage, learn how Oracle Solaris can help transform your IT operations to move to the cloud and make it simple to do. In this session we will cover some of the latest innovations engineered in Oracle Solaris 11.3 to manage a secure and integrated, large-scale cloud environment.

 

  • Optimizing NAS storage for Secure Cloud Infrastructures - The rapid expansion of secure and reliable cloud capabilities is fundamentally changing IT operations.  Over time, an increasing percentage of your data will reside off premise in a public or hybrid cloud. You won’t just need fast and efficient storage to accommodate ever increasing information growth.  You’ll need highly secure storage to assure your critical data is well protected — independent of where it resides. This presentation covers the unique characteristics of Oracle’s ZFS Storage Appliance and it's cache centric hybrid architecture ideally suited for cloud applications providing fast, efficient and secure data storage for public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructure, so you can migrate toward the cloud with confidence.

 

  • Automate your Oracle Solaris 11 and Linux deployments with puppet - Puppet is a popular open source configuration management tool that is used by many organizations to automate the setup and configuration of servers and virtual machines. Solaris 11.2 includes native support for puppet and extends the resources that can be managed to Solaris specific things like zones and ZFS. This presentation will give system administrators that are new to puppet an introduction and a way to get started with automating the configuration of Oracle Linux and Oracle Solaris systems, talk about how puppet integrates with version control and other projects and look at the Solaris specific resource types.

Data Security is on the top of everyone's mind these days with all of these highly publicized leaks of confidential company and user information. Working across an organization with various workloads can expose your data to those evil threats lurking in the shadows just waiting for the opportunity to hijack your data at its most vulnerable moment in transit. After all, why do you think all those old western robberies happened on a moving train? The stations had security measures in place; and those safes filled with gold were just ripe for the picking on a moving train away from its well protected home and destination. Who knew that "The Great Train Robbery," a silent film from back in 1903 would be applicable to an advanced system security topic...

 

Having a solution that is highly scalable and protects your data while in transit seems like a no-brainer. Why not use a lightning fast train that's wrapped in more layers of duct-tape than it would take to stop a bullet and has all the door lock mechanisms filled in with super glue so you can pick them? Enter the Comprehensive Data Protection on Oracle SuperCluster.


In this article by Glenn Brunette, Software Security Architect, and Ramesh Nagappan, Senior Principle Software Engineer, they describes how Oracle SuperCluster provides a fantastic platform for deployment of enterprise-scale applications and database workloads and multitenant private cloud services by protecting information while at rest, in use, and in transit.


Enjoy!

Register now for OTN’s new Virtual Technology Summit – September 16, 2015.

 

It’s all about the Cloud!  Hear from Oracle ACEs, Java Champions and Oracle Product Experts, as they share their insights and expertise through Hands-on-Labs, highly technical presentations and demos that enable you to master the skills you need to meet today’s IT challenges.  Chat live with folks and ask your questions as you attend sessions.

 

This interactive, online event offers four technical tracks, each with a unique focus on specific tools, technologies, best practices and tips:

 

Java: Java 8 in Action - Java 8 has been out for over a year now. But do you really know and use Java 8 to its full potential? In this Virtual Technology Summit, learn about Java SE cloud applications, Cloud-enabled JavaScript stored procedures with Java 8 Nashorn and the Java 8 Date and Time API.

 

Operating Systems, Virtualization Technologies, and Hardware: Implementing Your Cloud - Most IT organizations have roadmaps for cloud infrastructure.  Most vendors have some sort of story as to how they can get you to the cloud. Oracle specifically has itself to the idea that you can run your applications identically in our public cloud and your private cloud.  The question is: How?  In this track we’ll roll up our sleeves and show you how to implement your clouds using Oracle hardware, software, and best practices.

 

Database: Develop, Deploy and Manage Database Applications in the Oracle Cloud - Oracle has delivered the most comprehensive and powerful platform for deploying Cloud-based applications and services. Starting from the Infrastructure as a Service to the Platform as a Service, Oracle delivers a fully integrated cloud --platform and applications.  This track provides an in-depth look at Oracle Database Cloud Services and the enabling technologies for developing, deploying and managing applications in the Oracle Cloud.

 

Middleware: Middleware in the Cloud: PaaS Gets Real - The middleware track in the Fall 2015 edition of the OTN Virtual Technology Summit puts the spotlight on Oracle's Mobile Cloud Service (MCS), Process Cloud Service (PCS), and Java Cloud Service (JCS), three of the more the two dozen new services available on the Oracle Cloud Platform. In each of the three deep-dive sessions a recognized expert from the OTN community walks you through a technical how-to to demonstrate how you can use these PaaS services, and compares each to its on-premise counterparts. PaaS services loom large in the future for developers and architects, so if you're developing enterprise mobile applications, or working with Oracle BPM or WebLogic, you'll want to make sure these #OTNVTS sessions are on your calendar.

As many of you know, back in May after a long career in the communities of Sun and Oracle, the great Rick Ramsey announced his retirement. This left such a gaping hole in the OTN Systems community that the amazing staff at Oracle and in the Oracle Technology Network searched day and night to find a magical foot growing potion in an effort to fill those giant shoes.

 

After an exhaustive search, they decided my size 11s will do and hired me, Logan Rosenstein, as the new OTN Systems Community Manager.

 

For the last several years, I’ve worked in various communities and dabbled at IT in the video game industry. When I was able to separate my hands from a video game controller (work related research obviously), I worked on degrees in Business and Computer Science. Now that I’ve earned the piece of paper that says I have a Masters in Computer Science, I figured it was a good time to join the real world and jump from video game publishing over to Oracle. As a big fan of aviation, I’ve studied and written about real-time operating systems use in avionics and other embedded systems, network security in the FAA’s Next Gen system, and I have great interests in artificial intelligence and its use with computer vision in autonomous vehicles; all of which are great topics to bring up during speed dating.

 

Over the next several months, you may see some minor changes to the structure of the community, some renaming of forums to make navigation a little easier, and some community infrastructure upgrades to improve the overall experience. Please don’t be alarmed, it will likely just be my colleagues and I tinkering around to make sure that the community platform is keeping up with the needs of the members. I will do my very best to explain all the changes, roll them out slowly, and ask for input. If you have anything you would like to see happen, feel free to reach out to me and let me know.

 

I am extremely excited to be a part of the community and to do my part to help members learn, grow, and communicate. Feel free to reach out to me via any of the OTN Systems social media channels as well as through my community profile. Harmless plug inbound! Please follow the OTN Systems Hub blog, this is where all the new blog posts will be hosted. Don’t worry, the OTN Garage blog isn’t going anywhere and all its past content will remain available.

 

About the picture: This is a picture I took of my Chocolate Lab “Gunner.” Besides being the best dog on the planet (don’t even attempt to argue, I’ve made my decision and it’s final), his expression accurately portrays my own at this very moment as I am welcomed into the OTN family; wide-eyed and focused from excitement, legs spread out to handle the weight of all the responsibilities, completely frazzled hair from stress and covered in water in an attempt to push it back down and look composed. At the end of the day, my eyes are on the prize and I’m ready!
