Five Minute Briefing - Oracle April 20, 2016
The COLLABORATE 16 conference for Oracle users kicked off with a presentation by Unisphere Research analyst Joe McKendrick who shared insights from a ground-breaking study that examined future trends and technology among 690 members of three major Oracle users groups.
To help organizations that are being held back from moving enterprise workloads to a public cloud because of business, legislative, or regulatory requirements that restrict where and how they handle data, Oracle has launched a new set of offerings. Introduced at Oracle CloudWorld in Washington, DC, by Thomas Kurian, president, Oracle, "Oracle Cloud at Customer" enables organizations to get the benefits of Oracle's cloud services but in their own data center.
Oracle released new versions of several of its engineered systems which provide tightly integrated hardware and software. The company has introduced the Exadata X6 Database Machine, as well as updates to the Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance and SuperCluster M7.
THINK ABOUT IT
It seems every week there is another data breach in the news, which translates to millions and millions of personal records, credit card numbers, and other pieces of confidential information stolen each month. The victims of these breaches include important companies with professional IT staff. Now, you may be thinking: "Shouldn't the network guys be responsible for security?"
