Oracle Hits to Road to Pitch Data Center Plans

With all eyes on Oracle and its plans for Sun hardware now that its acquisition of Sun is complete, the database, enterprise software and (now) server giant is taking its message on the road, looking to connect with customers and talk up its vision of the data center of the future.
