In this session we will provide an overview of licensing Oracle programs using Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) on POWER/AIX VMs in the Skytap Cloud. There is a lot of confusion around Oracle licensing, especially in virtualized or cloud environments. Many of the references to discussion points and legal challenges resulting from running virtualized x86 platforms apply directly to POWER environments as well.
Key takeaways from this webinar include:
- Skytap Cloud is an effective option for IaaS, including for Oracle-based POWER/AIX applications.
- The use of POWER/AIX VMs for Oracle workloads in Skytap Cloud ensures that Oracle workloads stay running only on licensed processors.
- Skytap Cloud provides support for Oracle licensing by allocating dedicated resources to Oracle workloads.
- In an Oracle audit, usage of Skytap Cloud environments will be documented as if the LPARs or servers are part of the customer’s on-premises environment.
vSAN continues to drive the rapid growth of hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI), adopted by more than 8,000 customers. One of the most popular HCI consumption models is the vSAN ReadyNode – pre-configured, tested and certified x86 servers designed for optimal HCI performance. Today, we have more than 300 pre-configured ReadyNodes listed in our vSAN Compatibility Guide, which includes certified CPUs, memory, network, I/O controllers and storage options available from our OEM partners across the globe.

It wasn’t long ago that encryption projects were thwart with problems. The performance was terrible. Key management was a nightmare. Encryption was only implemented as a “must have” for compliance or national security. Around 10 years ago, performance started to be addressed with the introduction of AES acceleration in modern Intel processors. A new range of key management solutions started to appear to simplify encryption projects. Coupled with a “move to the cloud” the demand for encryption is now at an all-time high. But there is still one problem left to be solved. To perform encryption, even with hardware acceleration that AES-NI provides, encryption keys need to be memory resident. As such, the keys are vulnerable to attack.
With the introduction of Intel QuickAssist and Key Protection Technology and, in conjunction with HyTrust DataControl, this webinar will introduce you to some new and exciting technology where encryption keys are never exposed in memory and high-performance encryption is performed by the QuickAssist hardware. We’ll also be exploring the use of SGX in conjunction with QuickAssist to build secure, distributed HSMs.

The General Data Privacy Regulation will require Data Processors and Controllers to have a single version of the truth for all data related to an individual and the consent they have given to use it.
For compliance purposes this must be continually updated and available to any consuming system. It must be possible to answer questions like:
•What Personal Data do I hold?
•Why do I hold this? (For which processing activities/purposes?)
•Do I have specific consent and have I registered any objections?
•How will I continue to monitor and action consents and objections?
•Am I upholding the rights of the data subject?
The ability to answer these questions and achieve the single version of the truth is what we define as Consent Mastering. Data Processors and Controllers will also need to be able to take both a Data Governance view of consent but also an operational view and understand how they are linked.
Join Informatica and Entity Group to learn more about:
-The requirement for Consent Mastering in the context of GDPR
-The opportunity it represents, beyond regulatory compliance, to achieve a true 360° view of your customer
-How to comply with GDPR within the context of an holistic data management approach
