Learn about Oracle\’s Sun Blade system strategy, the key business benefits and how these systems can transform your datacenter. This presentation was developed by our x86 product marketing organization. I presented these slides at Denver and have also trained our EMEA sales force on this material in numerous locations within Europe. Several of my colleagues have also presented this material at various U.S. and Canadian cities.
