Oracle's Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel for Linux offers significant performance and scalability enhancements. As part of Oracle Exadata development efforts, Oracle Linux has been optimized for the most demanding enterprise servers and applications, including improvements in Infiniband and RDS technologies, leading to:
• 75 percent performance gain in OLTP performance tests over a Red Hat 5 Compatible Kernel
• 5x faster Infiniband messaging
• Improved scalability and reduced lock contention in networking, storage and IPC subsystems
If you have a high-demand workload environment and want to understand the benefits of the improvements in RDS and Infiniband, please join Director of Linux Kernel Engineering, Chris Mason as he discusses scalability and performance improvements in the Linux environment. They will also talk about tuning the software stack, tools used in determining bottlenecks and addressing them as well as overall performance improvements and benefits in Infiniband and RDS. You will walk away with a better understanding of why Linux is able to scale better on 8-socket systems.
Increasing complexity and growth in data centers have led to significant concerns about silent data corruption. Without an end-to-end protection technology, data corruption can go unnoticed until recovery is difficult and costly, or even impossible to perform. Database administrators face many challenges in developing and supporting applications that are often the lifeblood of their organization. One of the concerns is the integrity of data as it travels through the storage area network (SAN) between servers and storage arrays.
Please join Martin Petersen, lead Linux kernel developer at Oracle and Sergio Leunissen, Senior Director, Linux Product Management as they talk about the latest technology innovations that help eliminate silent data corruption in Linux environment. They will discuss the new features in Oracle's Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel for Linux that reduce the potential for incorrect data to be written to the disk, decreasing application and database errors and system down-time. Customers now have access to comprehensive data integrity capabilities across the entire Linux stack, allowing them to reduce costs while increasing efficiencies and uptime.
Customer demand and the latest hardware with increased memory and cores, are driving the need for getting latest Linux innovations from mainline kernel into a fully supported and certified Linux distribution, in a timely manner. Based on the stable 2.6.32 Linux kernel and including optimizations from collaboration between Oracle’s Linux, Database, Middleware, and Hardware engineering teams, Oracle's new Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel for Linux offers:
• More than 75 percent performance gain
• 200 percent speedup of Infiniband messaging
• 137 percent faster solid state disk access
• Improved power management and energy efficiency
• Enhanced data integrity
And what's even better is that Oracle Linux plus the new kernel is available for free download and use. You can get 24x7, global support through Oracle Unbreakable Linux Support program.
Join Oracle's Linux guru Wim Coekaerts, Senior VP, Linux and VM Engineering, and Monica Kumar, Senior Director, Product Marketing talk about key benefits of using Oracle Linux with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, and get answers to all your questions about Oracle and Linux.

NVM Express is becoming the de-facto standard for talking to Non-Volatile Memory over PCI Express. This is, in part, due to the great level of support NVM Express has in modern operating systems. In this webinar we will focus on the support for NVM Express in the Linux operating system. We will show how the NVM Express driver, combined with the Linux Block Layer, enables great performance, low latency and open-source management tools. This talk will focus on how Linux delivers such good performance on NVM Express devices, and discusses some of the roadmap items that are coming to the NVM Express and block layer in Linux. We will also discuss some of the management tools available for NVM Express and Linux today such as the NVMe command line interface tool (nvme-cli).Read more >

Open Source is growing like wildfire, and with it the popularity of Linux, the OS that increasingly drives how business interacts with the world. Linux’s popularity spans every industry, fueling increasing demand to exploit Linux in the enterprise for business-critical applications and for service providers anxious to offer enterprise-grade Linux to their cloud clients.
This means new requirements that must be addressed to ensure Linux deployments are enterprise ready- -- that means capable of massive transaction volumes at unprecedented scale, and built not to fail or crack - ever. Getting it right means growth and opportunity. Getting it wrong means running hundreds or thousands of servers, adding cost, complexity, latency and vulnerability—and lost business. How to get it right? Attend this complimentary webinar presented by Slashdot Media to hear IBM Linux experts Donna Dillenberger, Angel Diaz and Steven Dickens discuss how to get from open source project to enterprise-grade Linux with IBM LinuxONE.
Attendees will learn:
•What’s driving the demand for Enterprise-grade Linux
•How Ecosystem communities have come together to ensure open solutions
•How to leverage the latest technology platform to turbocharge Linux and open source apps
•New ROI models that enable seamless migration to LinuxONE platforms
•What enterprises and service providers can do now to begin the journey to enterprise Linux

As Executive Director of the Linux Foundation, Jim Zemlin has witnessed open source used as a powerful force for change within the IT industry. Linux now dominates almost every sector of computing; from mobile phones to the world's largest super-computers.
In this webinar, Jim will give an overview of activities happening in the open source community that can have an impact on accelerating Network Functions Virtualisation.
In addition to providing an overview of the open source development model and historic analogies where open source has been a vehicle for broad industry change, Jim will provide a brief description of key open source projects and how they relate to NFV.
Perhaps a dozen tools have sprung up over the last ten years that allow images of apps to be migrated across data centers and now clouds. While most are well designed, thoughtful and practical for some hybrid cloud use cases, they still do not constitute cloud migration solutions for the vast majority of existing, multi-tier enterprise applications. Tools need to be more robust and powerful to easily and safely move larger apps and critical authentication services into seamless hybrid cloud operating environments.
Join this webinar as Greg Ness from CloudVelocity discusses how cloud migration of Linux and Windows Apps into AWS can quickly and safely deploy multi-tier production apps into the cloud without virtualization and/or modiﬁcation for use cases that include DevTest and Disaster Recovery.
