Blue Medora expands their partner network with three new partners focused on solving the challenges of Oracle on VMware integration.

Blue Medora, the experts in providing management and monitoring solutions for Oracle workloads running on VMware, announced three new partnerships today: The Yucca Group, Forte Data Solutions, and Viscosity.

By seamlessly extending the leading platforms that IT specialists have already invested in, Blue Medora solutions are a high value offering. The solutions provide critical visibility into VMware virtualized Oracle environments using both Oracle Enterprise Manager (EM12c) and VMware vCenter Operations (vC Ops).

Blue Medora has built an unsurpassed ability to provide integrated views of mission-critical Oracle database, middleware, and application infrastructure performance, availability, and capacity. This provides accelerated collaboration between Oracle administrators and VMware operations teams by improving their ability to identify, troubleshoot and resolve Oracle performance and availability issues.

“Integration partners of this caliber showing interest in Blue Medora is yet another proof point that other companies see value in providing our offerings to their customers, and that our products are gaining a foothold in the marketplace,” said Nathan Owen, president and CEO of Blue Medora. “For partners like Viscosity, Yucca Group, and Forte Data Solutions, who are committed to delivering solutions that help customers migrate Oracle workloads to VMware, Blue Medora’s family of products focused on monitoring and managing Oracle on VMware represent the best-of-both-worlds by providing best-of-breed capabilities for both VMware vCenter Operations and Oracle Enterprise Manager.

The Yucca Group

The Yucca Group is focused on providing first class professional services for Oracle and virtualization of business critical applications for enterprise and SMBs with VMware.

“Providing our customers critical visibility and troubleshooting capability into the cause of Oracle database problems on VMware makes Blue Medora absolutely unique in the systems management space,” said Marlin McNeil, VP of Services at The Yucca Group. “VMware infrastructure support teams constantly wrestle with database performance problems in attempting to ensure uptime and availability of their mission-critical applications, but they typically lack the visibility they need to resolve problems. Blue Medora has equipped them with a valuable set of products that provide insights into Oracle performance and availability when running on VMware, and enabling them to collaborate with their DBA colleagues even more closely than before.”

Blue Medora’s products provide our customers with solutions to their data challenges, especially those dealing with Oracle Enterprise Manager and VMware virtualization” said Mark Caggiano, President of Forte Data Solutions.


Viscosity was formed by former Oracle employees that worked in various capacities within Oracle Corporation, including: Oracle Database, RAC Development, Oracle Consulting and Oracle Technical Architects, Design and Performance Tuning experts. Viscosity’s vast experience and intellectual property give customers insight into what is driving IT complexity. Viscosity delivers a set of practical executable plans for simplifying IT infrastructure, helping reduce operating costs while freeing up resources for new business initiatives.

“Our customers need a tightly integrated way to monitor, troubleshoot and optimize the performance of key Oracle applications and the databases that support them,” said Charles Kim, President of Viscosity. “We’re enthusiastic about the ability to combine deep Oracle database and VMware performance information all from within a single pane-of-glass –whether it is Oracle Enterprise Manager or vCenter Operations Manager.”
