23:51 Christopher White Press folks waiting for the keynote...
00:02 Christopher White Getting close -- the room is really filling up quickly.
00:04 Christopher White Apparently they're getting a late start... Announcement just said that we're starting in 10 minutes...
00:06 Christopher White It appears that the official Oracle OpenWorld hashtag on Twitter is #OOW -- check it out if you want to see more information from the keynote!
00:14 Christopher White strike one - Wi-Fi died... Thanks Oracle...
00:17 Christopher White Fujitsu will be giving the first talk. right now Oracle is taking about his great Fuji is.

00:19 Christopher White pictures from Japan's tsunami. :-(
00:23 Christopher White product centric to network to human centric.
00:23 Christopher White Losing Wi-Fi at the start of the keynote is not cool, Oracle.
00:26 Christopher White Fujitsu speaker isn't that interesting right now, although the picture of Kobe beef made me hungry...
00:27 Christopher White Fujitsu is helping agriculture and fans make more food...I think.
00:27 Christopher White the Agricultural Cloud.
00:28 Christopher White putting sensors on plants to detect environmental
00:29 Christopher White the Agricultural Cloud can increase yield by up to 70 percent

00:31 Christopher White Wi-Fi seems to be back - hope Oracle can keep it going...
00:33 Christopher White Futjisu's healthcare cloud -- can predict whether you will have diabetes in the future. (not sure I need analytics to predict that... )
00:34 Christopher White "It feels strange that a computer is telling me what disease I might get."
00:34 Christopher White "My first recommendation would be to reduce your alcohol consumption."
00:37 Christopher White All of the videos Fujitsu is showing are in Japanese. They must've used this presentation at a different conference.
00:41 Christopher White And the Wi-Fi is down again. Yay.
00:44 Christopher White Fujitsu creating new computer - taking technology from super computers
00:45 Christopher White well be highly scalable - using building block method. sounds similar to what Oracle does with exadata
00:45 Christopher White well use a hardware interconnect
00:47 Christopher White liquid loop cooling.
00:47 Christopher White And putting software on a chip...
00:47 Christopher White Andy mendelsohn from Oracle to talk more more.
00:49 Christopher White always want to minimize cpu. Oracle working with Fujitsu on project Athena to move database processing to the chip.
00:51 Christopher White back to the target full Fujitsu speaker..:-(
00:51 Christopher White We want Larry! We want Larry!
00:52 Christopher White make a new car, mine Twitter data to see what the overall world impression is.
00:53 Christopher White can find where negative comments are from and market better there. all using big data
00:53 Christopher White analytic prediction
00:54 Christopher White break down data based on many characteristics - education, salary, cell phone usage, etc.
00:54 Christopher White big data is just as scary as ever. :-)
00:56 Christopher White Athena will give us timely analysis -- real time instead of days to analyze big data.
00:58 Christopher White Exclusive arithmetic unit inside of Athena offloads the conversion to hardware.
00:59 Christopher White An update on the SPARC latform Collaboration between Oracle and Fujitsu cansbe seen at Moscone South Booth 1311 for those at OOW.
01:02 Christopher White Masami Yamamoto, president of Fujitsu... But can't be bothered to be here live, only did a video.
01:03 Christopher White Standard disclaimers that everything they talked about may or may not actually come true.
01:03 Christopher White Oracle video playing -- LOUDLY....
01:04 Christopher White And now - LARRY ELLISON!!!
01:05 Christopher White CEO of Oracle, for those who don't know ;)
01:05 Christopher White By this time next year, that SPARC multiprocessor will run Oracle faster than any other product - by using software functions into silicon.
01:06 Christopher White Cloud Computing -- Netsuite formed in '98, Salesforce formed in '99. A long time ago. The beginning of the cloud.
01:07 Christopher White Buy an Application (SaaS), a platform (Paas), or just infrastructure (IaaS)
01:08 Christopher White Giving kudos to Amazon's elastic cloud.
01:09 Christopher White Eight years after the early SaaS companies.
01:10 Christopher White Larry says, "Next slide," then catches himself and says, "I have a button to push for that, don't need someone to do it for me!"
01:12 Christopher White Cloud computing is a utility method, been with us forever (think: electric company)
01:13 Christopher White Larry is a character... Stopped presentation to get a drink of... water?
01:14 Christopher White Fusion middleware had to be built before they could build CRM.
01:14 Christopher White (or ERP)
01:14 Christopher White Oracle Cloud in 2011 - two tiers of cloud. SaaS and PaaS.
01:15 Christopher White Is Java really the #1 most popular programming language in the world...?
01:17 Christopher White Next up - IaaS
01:18 Christopher White Oracle is offering their OS, VM, Compute services, and storage service - exadata, exalogic, supercluster, exalytics, networked together with InfiniBand.
01:19 Christopher White Major supplier of OS, servers, and storage ever since buying SUn.
01:20 Christopher White Announcing the Oracle Private Cloud.
01:21 Christopher White Oracle owns it, manages it, upgrades it, you only pay a monthly fee and only for what you use.
01:23 Christopher White Interesting concept. I wonder if this can be used as a backup solution, for example - and only flip to it in a disaster (thus saving money over buying a second Exadata, for example)
01:23 Christopher White Just answered my question - can use Oracle Cloud for DR.
01:25 Christopher White Best in class Security*, Reliability *(Java excepted.. )
01:26 Christopher White Oracle 12c - first multitenant database in the world.
01:27 Christopher White Separate memory and processes allocated to each database.
01:30 Christopher White Oracle 12c has the concept of a "container database."
01:30 Christopher White You then plug multiple seperate private databases into that container.
01:33 Christopher White Oracle 11g vs 12c -- use much less hardware when we add customers/databases.
01:36 Christopher White Announcing Exadata X3 -- Database in-memory machine.
01:36 Christopher White "If you thought the old Exadata was fast, you aint seen nothing yet!"
01:36 Christopher White 26 TB of DRAM and Flash in one rack. 10x Database compression.
01:45 Christopher White 10-20x faster when upgrade from X2 to X3 -- sounds like a software upgrade, which is nice.
01:46 Christopher White EMC VMAX 40K is faster than any of the competition. How does it compare to Oracle...?
01:47 Christopher White 52GB/sec for EMC, 100GB/sec for a single Exadata rack - for high bandwidth applications.
01:47 Christopher White Make a full 8 racks -- 800GB/sec compared to 52GB/sec...
01:48 Christopher White One rack of Exadata is much cheaper than a maxed out 40K.
01:51 Christopher White Exadata X3-2 Eigth rack -- list price $200k.
01:54 Christopher White Does that mean a single node, no RAC? If so, lame.
01:54 Christopher White And that ends the keynote. I hope you enjoyed it, thanks for reading!

Java is secretly the world's biggest virus/dropper/backdoor AND trojan.

Hell it's so good they even convinced everyone to pre install it on PC's, phones, DVD players, cars...

nub said,
Tell them to fix Java.

I'll run up there and either a) get tackled by security or b) give Larry your message.
