Summary: Navigating Oracle licensing compliance emerges as a critical challenge when deploying Oracle workloads on VMware Cloud Foundations (VCF) and other platforms. This session, led by Dean Bolton from LicenseFortress, delves into the intricacies of Oracle licensing strategies and options, ensuring that your business-critical applications not only meet but exceed business SLAs. The focus on licensing precedes a broader discussion on architecting Oracle workloads within VCF environments, emphasizing the importance of compliance in a landscape where technical and operational excellence is paramount.

Achieving high availability (HA), disaster recovery (DR), and optimal performance for mission-critical applications requires a robust framework that spans from bare metal to cloud infrastructures like VCF. VMware's Hybrid Multi-Cloud solutions, including VMware Cloud on AWS, offer a seamless and interoperable infrastructure that reduces the complexity and risks associated with managing diverse environments. Sudhir Balasubramanian from VMware will discuss how these solutions are pivotal in ensuring business continuity, effective disaster recovery, and resilience against ransomware threats.

The session will cover:

- Strategies for maintaining Oracle licensing compliance within VCF environments, facilitated by LicenseFortress.
- The provisioning, management, and monitoring of Oracle databases on VCF.
- Leveraging VMware Hybrid Multi-Cloud capabilities to bolster business continuity, disaster recovery, and ransomware recovery for critical applications.
