There is no doubt that Linux has proved to be a very viable and attractive technology for enabling large scale cloud deployments. Oracle CIO, Mark Sunday will discuss how Oracle has built and expanded its data center using Linux over the last many years while going through multiple acquisitions, hundreds of thousands of customers and thousands of employees and partners. How did Linux perform under pressure of constant and rapid growth and scale?

In addition, Wim Coekaerts, Oracle's Senior Vice President of Linux and Virtualization Engineering will discuss how Linux is evolving to accommodate even more demanding mobile, web and cloud applications, much larger and varied data sets, and a need for better testing, optimization, and instant provisioning of Linux solutions. We'll look into the crystal ball and see what's next for Linux!
