Why Silicon Valley's YMCA Is Pumped Up About The Cloud [55643]
By Elena Malykhina

Elena Malykhina writes in Forbes, "Many nonprofits and small to midsize businesses feel stuck with legacy systems they know are inefficient-but they think they don't have the money or the resources to modernize.

The YMCA of Silicon Valley is proving otherwise.

With ten branches and 92 satellite locations serving approximately 100,000 families, this YMCA Association has ambitious expansion plans. CFO Ed Barrantes is setting up infrastructure to double the number of people served, helping even more families in this high cost-of-living area get access to healthy-living and youth-development programs..."

New features in the Oracle Compute Cloud [55412]
By Pat Shuff

Pat blogs, "Today Oracle updated the Oracle Compute Cloud Service by adding three new features.

  • Integration of the Oracle Marketplace into the Compute Cloud Console to make it easier to deploy custom solutions
  • Expanding the functionality of Backup Services to snapshot Compute Instances and clone them from snapshots
  • Making it easier to import existing virtual machines into the Oracle Cloud and making these images available to the Public and Private Marketplace

We talked earlier this week on pulling an image from the Oracle Marketplace. Previous to today you had to go to, setup preferences to link your account to your compute account, get an app from the marketplace, and provision the instance through the compute cloud. Today we just need to go into the create instance menu system from the Compute Console and select an image from the Marketplace to provision into a compute instance. This modification reduces the number of steps required to use the Marketplace as well as making it easier to provision preconfigured solutions into a compute instance or set of compute instances..."

3 Practical Tips for a Smoother Cloud Project: Oracle's Steve Miranda [55026]
By Chris Murphy

Chris blogs, "Speed of implementation is one of the big advantages companies get from cloud software. In a recent appearance on the interview program CXOTalk, Steve Miranda, Oracle executive vice president of application development, bluntly described why that speed is so important.

'The mess isn't going to get any smaller,' Miranda said, explaining to CXOTalk host Michael Krigsman how the problems you're trying to solve keep evolving, too, if a project drags on.

In the course of the 45-minute conversation, Miranda shared three best practices he sees in companies that effectively and efficiently implement cloud systems:.."
