Oracle On Cloud Computing Road Trip Around The World

Oracle On Cloud Computing Road Trip Around The World

Cloud Computing Road Trip

Oracle may be a comparatively late entrant into the cloud computing arena, but it is certainly making up for lost time with enthusiasm. According to its website, the data warehousing giant is on a cloud computing road trip around the world that will position its products and services to potential clients.

This trip will take the Oracle Enterprise Cloud Summit, as the event is titled, to more than 80 cities across all major geographical regions – North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia- Pacific (APAC).

This trip marks a major move by Oracle soon after its entry into this nascent field of cloud computing. Its only on 15 December last year that Oracle introduced Oracle Cloud Office, which it described as “a web and mobile office suite that enables web 2.0-style collaboration and mobile document access. Compatibility with Microsoft Office and integration with Oracle Open Office enable rich and seamless offline editing of complex presentations, text and spreadsheet documents.”

Oracle has positioned the Enterprise Cloud Summit as a learning opportunity for IT professionals and businesspeople. It has described the advantages of attending in the following words:

During this full-day event, cloud experts will share real-world best practices, reference architectures, detailed customer case studies, and more. You’ll learn how to transform IT into a superior service provider with a strategy and roadmap for building, deploying, and managing an enterprise cloud.

Attend the Oracle Enterprise Cloud Summit to learn how to:

* Build a state-of-the-art cloud architecture

* Leverage your existing IT investments

* Optimize your IT management processes.
Whether you are considering a move to cloud computing or have already adopted a cloud model, this event offers you the insights you need to take full advantage of cloud computing.”

As is evident from the description, Oracle has positioned its hardware and software as means of building private clouds, as opposed to public platforms like Amazon Web Services. However, public clouds may also be featured. More information on Oracle’s upcoming Fusion Applications are also expected to be disclosed.

The first event in the calendar has already taken place at Taipei, Taiwan, on 6 January 2011. Two simultaneous events at Ontario, Canada, and Bratislava, Slovakia, are next on the list for 25 January 2011.
