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.
