Show Notes
  • Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Can you tell us about your background prior to joining Oracle and how it helped you design the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure?
  • Topic 2 - There was a lot of buzz about Oracle redesigning their infrastructure cloud. Can you walk us through the architecture and how Oracle delivers bare-metal, VMs and containers? Are they separate environments, or all integrated?
  • Topic 3 - How does Oracle Cloud deliver networking - intra-cloud, from region-to-region, and integrated with on-premises applications?
  • Topic 4 - Oracle often talks about “same cloud architecture in both public and private”. Other public clouds are designed differently than most on-premises environments. Can you talk about what’s the same and what is typically different in the Oracle Cloud? What do customers have to adjust to in the Oracle Cloud?
  • Topic 5 - How do Oracle customers manage to integrate different Oracle Cloud services (e.g. containers, PaaS services, SaaS services, security, etc.)?
