Oracle Announces the Launch of Oracle PartnerNetwok Cloud Program

The new Oracle PartnerNetwork Cloud Program will provide all technical and go to market support to the Oracle’s partners to help them speed up the expansion of their cloud business.

Oracle Oracle launches a new Partner Network Cloud Program, which will help the partners of Oracle to get the technical help on priority basis to expand their cloud business.

“OPN now offers the most comprehensive portfolio of cloud programs available today, Partners have never played a more important role in our global economy” said Shawn Price, senior vice president, Oracle Cloud.

For instance, associates contributing to OPN Cloud Program can assist clients find more out of their Oracle SaaS (software-as-a-service) funds with extra abilities developed using Oracle PaaS (platform as a service). These associates may begin with a center support, cloud HR applications, for example, and take a client throughout the cloud financial applications. Those two sets of apps in particular share a range of touch points.

“Our rapid growth and extensive SaaS, PaaS and IaaS cloud portfolio presents an unparalleled opportunity for partners and customers alike. We can now equip our highly experienced partners with the tools they need to successfully move their customers to modern business models. This vast partner community includes tens of thousands of implementation experts with transferable skills who can help our customers navigate their transition to the cloud.”

The new Oracle Partner Network (OPN) Cloud Program is released to the company’s 25,000 current OPN associates, which includes the advisers, integrator, and value added re-sellers, as well as the new partners. Benefits to associates consist of entrance to Oracle Cloud demonstration environments, Oracle expertise, and joint marketing.

Cloud Standard is the first tier in the program which assists those cloud partners who start to distinguish themselves in the market. Cloud Select is the second tier, these partners have attained a cloud specialty and are developing and advertising Oracle Cloud technologies or services, and have demonstrated success working with clientele to start their Oracle Cloud Services solutions.

Cloud Premier the third tier mirror partners who have changed their business to spotlight specifically on driving their Oracle Cloud solutions with thriving and repeatable clients use cases. Cloud Elite the fourth tier is the highest program title, these extremely skilled and dedicated partners have demonstrated a full investment in a profundity and span of Oracle Cloud solutions and devotion to delivering them to joint clients.

Microsoft’s Announces the Successful Experiment for Its Seabed Data Center Project

Microsoft releases the details of its pilot project of under the sea data center, which  will cut the power cost of operating data centers and it will use the sea water for the cooling purpose.

seabed data Project Natick is the name of Microsoft’s project, which join the underwater unit using huge steel tubes connected by fiber optic line, could also use turbines to exchange tides and currents into electricity to power the computing apparatus. The new seabed data centers could also improve cloud response times for users living close to the coastline.

Ben Cutler, the project manager who led the team behind this experiment said “We take a big whack at big problems, on a short-term basis. We take a look at something from a new angle, a different perspective, with a willingness to challenge conventional wisdom. So when a paper about putting data centers in the water landed in front of Norm Whitaker, who heads special projects for Microsoft Research NExT, it caught his eye.”

A prototype was positioned on the sea bed off the coastline of California in August 2015 as part of a study into the ecological and technical problems involved in this form of low power cloud service. Microsoft researchers trust that economies of scale through mass manufacturing would cut operation time from two years to ninety days. The project is the most recent program from Microsoft Research’s New Experiences and Technologies (NExT) which started investigating new ways to power cloud computing in 2014.

“We’re a small group, and we look at moonshot projects, As we started exploring the space, it started to make more and more sense. We had a mind-bending challenge, but also a chance to push boundaries.” Whitaker says.

In the 105 day testing an 8 foot thick steel container was placed 30 feet undersea in the Pacific Ocean near San Luis Obispo, California. The submarine system had 100 sensors to measure force, moisture, movement and other situations, but the system stayed up, which expectant the Microsoft to expand the test to run data-processing projects from Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing service.

In the next phase of the study, it will make an undersea data center system that will be three times larger. This will be constructed in partnership with a substitute power vendor. The name of the test partner has yet to be decided, but the commencement date is doubtful for 2017 at a location either in Florida or Northern Europe, where hydro power is highly developed.

Microsoft Unveils the First Technical Preview of Azure Stack

The announcement is a continuity of its hybrid cloud strategy and the Microsoft Azure Stack which is consistent with its public cloud will enable the organizations to run Azure services from private data centers.

MS Azure  Microsoft announces the launch of the first technical preview of its Azure Stack which is a milestone of this leading cloud services providing company. The Azure Stack has the ability to help the enterprises to get Azure services right from their own data centers.

To meet their client’s business requirements Microsoft is bringing innovation to its cloud services and with the Azure Stack the customers will be able to acquire the services like Iaas and Paas on-premises on the enterprise level instead of hyper scale data center.

“Application developers can maximize their productivity using a ‘write once, deploy to Azure or Azure Stack’ approach.  Using APIs that are identical to Microsoft Azure, they can create applications based on open source or .NET technology that can easily run on-premises or in the public cloud. They can also leverage the rich Azure ecosystem to jump start their Azure Stack development efforts” wrote Mike Neil, Corporate Vice President, Enterprise Cloud, Microsoft Corporation.

“Organizations can embrace hybrid cloud computing on their terms by helping them address business and technical considerations like regulation, data sovereignty, customization and latency. Azure Stack enables that by giving businesses the freedom to decide where applications and workloads reside” he said.

To administer the difficulty, Microsoft thinks organizations have to use the cloud as a model but not as a place. This new model will make cuts across infrastructure, application and people, and needs a hybrid-cloud approach that will offer uniformity across private, public, and hosted clouds. To interpret this replica into actuality, clients require a reliable cloud platform that covers hybrid environments. The Microsoft is capable to deliver on this need in a way where the platform is established in hyper-scale public cloud and extended to hosted and private clouds.

With a sequence of Technical Previews, Microsoft will continue adding services and content such as OS images and Azure Resource Manager templates to assist clients begin taking benefit of Azure Stack.

On GitHub, Azure has 100s of such applications and components and as these services come to Azure Stack, users can take benefit of those as well. In this perspective, Microsoft is already considering the early enthusiasm from partners, especially open source partners, like Canonical, who are contributing authenticated Ubuntu Linux images that facilitate open source applications to work efficiently with Azure Stack environments.
