Session Preview: Oracle Private Cloud at Oracle OpenWorld 2012

As adoption of cloud technologies continues to accelerate, many organizations are, for reasons of security and control, choosing to build their own private clouds. As a result, conference organizers expect an especially high turnout at sessions devoted to Oracle's private cloud products at Oracle OpenWorld 2012 taking place in San Francisco September 30 to October 4.

In addition to many individual sessions covering topics ranging from hardware to management tools, attendees can demo a range of Oracle's private cloud offerings in the Moscone North Upper Lobby.

Partners and Fellow Customers Tell the Story
At this year's conference, dozens of Oracle Cloud customers and partners, including representatives from Dell and Whitehorses, present experiences and best practices.

"I am excited to share how Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c provides a wonderful interface for users to request database services on demand, consume them on an on-need basis, and then retire them to the cloud. It means no more sleepless nights for administrators deploying databases!" says Krishna Kamal Kapa, systems engineer, Dell, who cochairs the session titled "Database as a Service with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c," on October 3 at 11:45 a.m. in Moscone West 3020 (session ID# CON2511).

"It’s fun and not that hard to start and grow your private cloud. You can start small but still grow big and leverage all the benefits a private cloud can bring," says Laurens van der Starre, a consultant at Oracle partner Whitehorses, who helps lead a session titled "Start Small, Grow Big: Hands-on Oracle Private Cloud—A Step-by-Step Guide," on October 2, at 10:30 a.m. in the Moscone South Exhibition Hall (session ID# SBH3715).
