Oracle Ravello Build Day Live in Isreal Dec. 7 at 9 AM PST

?? It’s our first Build Day Live overseas, and in a country I’ve never been to before! We are in Tel Aviv, Isreal where we take to the Cloud! Oracle Ravello has a Cloud Management platform and Hypervisor that allows you to run on either AWS, Google, or Oracle public clouds. They also have a software-defined network component that allows enterprise networks to be built on top of those public clouds.
