Day 3 VMware Experts Workshop Oracle with Pure Storage

Day 3 VMware Experts Workshop Oracle with Pure Storage is off and running. At 7:00 .a.m. ?we heard from Dean Bolton and Jonathan Mitchell on License fortress. Anyone deploying Oracle Software should take a detailed look at License Fortress which is a better way to managed your Oracle environment from a Licensing perspective. It is no secret that Oracle uses very aggressive means when it comes to Licensing. Here is a great article to read on the Mars Candy and Oracle lawsuit that happened.?Oracle & VMware: Part I ? What you can learn from Mars Vs. Oracle. In one of my earlier blogs, I coined the term Oracle Galaxy Licensing ? Oracle Vs Mars. Oracle LMS (License Management Services) is a big revenue producer for Oracle Corporation. Oracle aggressive use of Audits is something all oracle customers should be prepared for. They should have an independent third party do a license compliance audit to make sure you have no ticking time-bombs if Oracle LMS were to come knocking at your door.

With License Fortress as part of the Product, there is a guarantee to provide legal services and indemnification against a legal judgment that goes in favor of an Oracle License claim backed by Berkshire Hathaway. License Fortress takes the worry out of Oracle License Management Services audit. When traditional license management services will perform a compliance audit, they have created a comprehensive Audit Solution and service.

Day 3 VMware Experts Workshop Oracle with Pure Storage is another jammed packed day of deep dive on VMware vSphere and why it should be the platform of choice for Database Virtualization.
