2019 IOUG Data Environment Expansion Survey
Oracle database environments continue to increase in size and complexity. As a result, licensing and support costs are climbing, as well as staffing and skills constraints and administrative costs and complexity. These growing pains are getting in the way of further expansion. Many enterprises are turning to cloud and automation to reduce costs and increase agility and capacity. The use of public cloud services at Oracle database sites is increasing, but the majority of transaction environments still remain on-premises today. For most Oracle environments, the future is pointing towards a hybrid cloud model. Download this brand new study today for a full overview of the key trends, challenges and opportunities to keep in mind as you navigate the evolution of your Oracle database environment.
ACHIEVE SCALE, SIMPLICITY, AND PERFORMANCE WITH VIRTUAL VOLUMES FOR ORACLE
VMware Virtual Volumes has gained increasing adoption from storage vendors since its release.

ON-DEMAND WEBINAR: STRAIGHT TALK ON ORACLE ON VMWARE LICENSING IN 2017
Throughout the course of the last decade, VMware virtualization has become the preferred platform for hundreds of thousands of customers, many of them running their Business Critical Applications on the virtualized infrastructure. At the center of many of these BCA environments is the Oracle Database Management System. Unfortunately, it is often the case, that significant confusion regarding how to properly license Oracle software in those VMware environments dominates the discussion distracting from what should be the main focus of the proposition. That is, the tremendous value of combining the world's premier RDBMS with the world's premier virtualization platform.
VMware is committed to customers who are interested in running Oracle on vSphere and correctly licensing Oracle Software on virtual infrastructure. In March of 2015, the first "Straight Talk on Oracle on VMware Licensing" webinar was successfully hosted as one of our most popular webinars on www.dbta.com. This 2017 webinar will deliver updated information to augment the content of the 2015 event. Since then new subjects have surfaced such as licensing on Public Clouds along with new misunderstandings of old subjects such as extended vMotion. This webinar will also serve as an introduction of VLSS and the product of "License Fortress". Please join us on March 30th as Don Sullivan moderates a discussion on this subject with globally renowned subject matter experts Dave Welch of "House Of Brick," Daniel Hesselink of "License Consulting," and Dean Bolton of VLSS.
