All just got this from Vmware Tod Nielsen the COO of Vmware http://www.vmware.com/company/leadership.html met with Oracle President Charles Phillips http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/Executives/016435 in July. Charles appreciated Tod providing a list of over 500 VMware customers asking for Oracle to support their apps running on VMware. Charles did say this is a challenges for him as he has not personally received this request from customers, and until he does, cannot see making this a priority for his team. So the bottom line is that Charles doesn’t feel that many people run critical apps on Oracle in a Virtual environment Charles is interested in hearing from our joint customers on the matter. Therefore, I encourage you to direct your customers to contact Charles directly. This will provide him the direct feedback he seeks in order to better understand the demand and assess the great opportunity for Oracle to leverage the VMware platform to differentiate against Oracle’s main competitors. This is a great opportunity for us to help our customers achieve their goals of leveraging vSphere as their business critical infrastructure platform. Customers can contact Charles at Charles.phillips@xxxxxxxxxx Thank You for making this a priority with your customers. Together Oracle, VMware, and our joint customers can gain tremendous business benefit from a strong partnership.
