    How Security Threats Are Driving the Need for Rapid Systems Patching

    We apologize for the inconvenience, but this webcast is being rescheduled. Please, stay tuned for the new date and time!   

    According to the 2015 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report more than 99% of system breaches occurred more than a year after the exploited system vulnerability had been identified.

    Why are organizations not taking advantage of the latest patches? Most cite time and resources as the reasons for outdated patches, but through a smarter approach, organizations can accelerate the process and lower the cost of eliminating system vulnerabilities.

    In this webcast, you will leave with an understanding of how:

    • A comprehensive patching strategy with Oracle’s engineered systems reduces customer exposure to known vulnerabilities and simplifies the process of system maintenance.
    • Paypal has implemented integrated patching to improve their system maintenance processes and limited unplanned downtime.
    • Oracle Platinum Services, can install and manage your security updates at no extra charge.

    Featured Speakers: Akash Guha, PayPal; Celia Chase, Oracle; Elaine Hepler, Oracle; Greg Crider, Oracle

    VMware SIG Webcast: Myth-Defied! Busting the Myths of Database Virtualization

    Thursday, September 10, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Perhaps, if you have been living under a rock on a far distant planet, void of anything technical and perhaps, if the internet is not delivered directly to your home, work, phone or car then perhaps, just perhaps, you have not heard of the IT rage known as ‘Virtualization’. The more likely scenario, however, is that you, the Oracle professional, receive daily messages from more vendors than you can count, all espousing the ease and virtue of ‘Private Clouds’, ‘Public Clouds’, and ‘Platform as a Service’ encouraging you to make the virtualization leap today or be left behind tomorrow… 

    Yet amidst all of these choices and clamor, how do you find the truth? More importantly, as a concerned Oracle professional, should you even consider placing your most valuable data assets within a virtual infrastructure? Can mission-critical Oracle databases even run on virtual infrastructures? What is fact? What is myth? And in the end, where does this all lead? 

    In 2008, Indiana University grappled with many of these questions and more, ultimately arriving at a multi-year strategy which has allowed the institution to successfully migrate all enterprise class, mission-critical systems to the virtual infrastructure. Busting database virtualization myths and taboos, the University realized seven figure cost savings and experienced clear operational improvements, all while supporting the data needs of more than 120,000 students, faculty and staff. 

    Bring your hardhats and safety goggles as we explore various Oracle database virtualization myths both BUSTED and CONFIRMED based upon the University’s years of virtualized database experience.
