19 May 2014 7 Facts About The Industry's Newest Cloud Platform [36508]
By Scott Genereux, Senior Vice President for Oracle's Hardware Systems Business Group

Scott writes, "Infrastructure software has evolved from the days when computers could take hours to crunch numbers, spit out answers, and otherwise provide 'decision support.'

21 Apr 2014 What to Expect from The Top Oracle Solaris 11 Training Courses [35940]
by Mike Lanker, Senior Oracle University Instructor

Mike writes, "After many years of working with prior versions of Solaris, I was asked to learn and teach Solaris 11 classes. I wondered what could be different?
