For you this week:
We look at how having high-performance computing on tap in the cloud is driving change in diverse areas such as climate science, economics, and nuclear physics. Then we show you what it takes to deliver those online orders to your doorstep the next day. Plus, learn from Oracle’s own journey to the cloud at Oracle OpenWorld.

Go Big: High-Performance Cloud Computing Scales to Millions of Jobs
High-performance computing, the kind used in areas as diverse as engineering, biotechnology, and digital animation, is now vastly easier to obtain in the cloud. “If you wanted a 50,000-core cloud cluster today, you could turn it on as soon as the online registration is completed—and be scheduling a million jobs that day,” says Oracle’s Taylor Newill. By contrast, the same cluster from a major hardware provider would take about two months to get turned on. Other big benefits.
Package Delivery
The Technology Powering Your Speedy Package Delivery
JASCI software’s cloud SaaS platform helps retailers and ecommerce companies handle one-, two-, and even same-day delivery. Its platform continually learns to optimize each customer’s workflow in real time, integrating with robotic operations and wearable technology to reduce labor-intensive operations and provide supply chain visibility. “Because we’re built on the most powerful cloud platforms, customers can start at any size and grow without limitations,” says CEO Craig Wilensky.
Cloud Journey
Oracle’s Own Journey to the Cloud 
At this year’s Oracle OpenWorld, attendees can visit the new Oracle@Oracle Experience to learn how Oracle’s internal organizations are using the Oracle Cloud platform to delight users, accelerate growth, and save money. “As the largest user of Oracle Cloud applications, we are excited to show off the results and share best practices,” says Oracle’s Douglas Kehring, executive vice president of corporate operations.
