Last month, VMware ran its third iteration of the Oracle Experts Event in Palo Alto, CA. This exclusive, invite-only event sponsored by VMware brings top Oracle experts in from around the world to learn about the latest and greatest around virtualization technologies. I was lucky enough to be invited as a participant to the first event and have attended the rest as an alumni (while being put to work to help with the hands-on labs).

I'm sure some of you are asking how a network virtualization product can help with software licensing. Well, if you've been following VLSS for awhile, you know that our mantra isn't "Trust, but verify." It's "Just verify," and VMware NSX can help do just that.
Recently, VLSS took on an engagement with an organization that had no disaster recovery (DR) solution in place. The initial phase was to develop a DR Proof of Concept (POC) within a two-week timeframe.
This organization has an on-premise data warehouse and a stack consisting of an Oracle® database, an Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise (OBIEE) server, and Informatica®. The database is backed up locally with Recovery Manager (RMAN). All components are running in VMware®. The POC’s objective was to take the company’s on-premise environment and replicate it that to the Oracle Cloud to achieve a 48-hour Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and a 24-hour Recovery Time Objective (RTO).
VLSS is proud to have been selected as the VMware and Pure Storage partner to implement the joint Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) reference architecture. Over the past year, we have worked closely with teams at both VMware and Pure Storage to design, implement and publish this reference architecture.
