How Oracle Created A Much Better Cloud Buying Experience
By Chris Murphy
Chris Murphy writes, "When Oracle set out to create a fast, simple way for companies to buy its cloud services, it did so by first focusing on the success of the customer and then transforming its internal operations to offer the best procurement experience in the cloud. Oracle's reimagination of its purchasing process is a modern-day example of how a technology company is using its own offerings to deliver the best customer experience and leapfrog its competitors..."

Imagine What You Could Do With 64TB of Memory
By Torrey Martin
Torrey writes, "One thought that kept recurring was that the Fujitsu M10 now supports a staggering maximum 64TB of main memory. There is no other commercial server on the planet with this amount of memory.

What could you do with that much memory?..."

    Deploying and Upgrading OpenStack with Docker
    By Zeynep Koch
    Zeynep blogs, "OpenStack is notoriously complex to deploy and update. Traditional method of using RPMs is extremely unreliable due to inter-dependencies resulting into delays in deployment and failures in update. Any change in any of the RPMs may can adversely impact other RPMs and the deployment risks failures and delays.

    Leveraging OpenStack upstream Kolla project, Oracle has transformed the deployment. OpenStack services are deployed as micro-services in docker containers which are fully independent from each other. Using the Ansible deployment tool, any of the containers can be changed or replaced easily without impacting other containers..."
