Deployment Of Oracle Applications And Database With Openstack Murano (Beta) [57800]
By Zeynep Koch, November 7th, 2016

Zeynep blogs, "Traditional enterprise software deployment can be complex, time-consuming, and error-prone. OpenStack services provide a rich set of capabilities for automated deployment and configuration of raw compute, network, and storage, but have typically left the top of the stack to be managed by traditional configuration management (CM) tooling. With OpenStack Murano's abstraction capabilities, deployment time can be reduced from weeks and days to hours and minutes, without the requirement to develop and maintain highly customized CM manifests..."

Gut check on Oracle's journey to the cloud [57632]
By Keith Townsend

"Oracle's Chuck Hollis recently wrote a blog post explaining the company's cloud strategy. Here is a summary of the main points and what you can learn from the roadmap...

Larry Ellison is known for making bold claims surrounding Oracle's Cloud strategy. When VMware and AWS announced their partnership, Oracle's senior vice president Chuck Hollis was quick to dismiss the partnership and lament that neither VMware nor Dell EMC has a viable cloud strategy in his opinion.

Here's Why Cloud Adoption Is About To Shift Into High Gear [57631]
By Jeff Erickson

Jeff blogs, "Given all the media coverage in recent years, it would be reasonable to assume that cloud computing already dominates the IT landscape. In reality, however, tech analysts pin the number of IT workloads in the cloud at only 5 or 6%."

'Where are those other 95%?' asks Steve Daheb, executive vice president of cloud strategy at Oracle. His answer? Companies have been waiting for a cloud that better fits how their business actually runs.

Data Warehousing in the Cloud - Part 1 [57437]
By Keith Laker

Keith writes, "Data warehouses are currently going through two very significant transformations that have the potential to drive significant levels of business innovation:

The first area of transformation is the drive to increase overall agility. The vast majority of IT teams are experiencing a rapid increase demand for data. Business teams want access to more and more historical data whilst at the same time, data scientists and business analysts are exploring ways to introduce new data streams into the warehouse to enrich existing analysis as well as drive new areas of analysis. This rapid expansion in data volumes and sources means that IT teams need to invest more time and effort ensuring that query performance remains consistent and they need to provision more and more environments (data sandboxes) for individual teams so that they can validate the business value of new data sets..."
