How to Lose Your Job, Oracle on VMware…

The saying “if you live long enough, you’ll see everything” comes to mind with my experiences with Oracle and VMware. Eight years ago when I was at Oracle on the Linux and Oracle VM team, Oracle was new to x86, Linux and virtualization, and the UNIX to Linux exodus was in full swing. Our team’s mission was to capture as much as the UNIX to Linux business as possible on Oracle Linux and VM. We spent our time with the application owners, and infrastructure managers trying to get them to move their Oracle portfolio to commodity x86 hardware with Oracle Linux and VM. It was really tough, the application owners and their supporting UNIX teams could not fathom virtualizing Oracle databases on commodity x86 hardware with Linux. The infrastructure managers (x86) were new to Oracle, and they also could not fathom running anything, including Oracle, on anything other than VMware.

Fast forward 8 years, I have re-engage with most of the accounts from my Oracle days, and I have had the unique opportunity to see how the application owners and infrastructure managers Oracle decisions played out.
