Brad Anderson offers a ‘friction-free’ and flexible path to the cloud at OpenWorld 2013

Last week, Corporate Vice President of Windows Server and System Center Program Management Brad Anderson became the first Microsoft executive to deliver a keynote at Oracle OpenWorld. Times they are a changin’, and in a very positive way. In his keynote, Anderson showcased how Microsoft and Oracle are working together to give customers flexibility and choice.

“Oracle workloads running on Windows Server are some of the most common configurations in the data center, and I certainly feel a stewardship and I feel a responsibility to make sure that that is friction-free for all of you,” said Anderson.

In that vein, Anderson announced a preview of license-included Windows Server virtual machine images running Oracle Database, Oracle WebLogic Server and the Java Development Kit. Likewise, Oracle is offering bring-your-own-license Oracle Linux virtual machine images running Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server in Windows Azure.
