Are you on a journey to the cloud? You might be like Cyrus Agarwal, the star of Oracle’s new science-fiction movie, “Cloud Odyssey: A Hero’s Quest.” Cyrus has set his sights on the mysterious cloud planet Terranuvem. To get there, Cyrus and the crew of the Stratus will test the limits of technology, tenacity, and human ingenuity.
Join them on their voyage by attending an exclusive screening during our global tour, which will touch down at 14 cities in North American beginning March 4 in Miami. The complete schedule is here. After the film, you’ll learn how to build, deploy and deliver private clouds that enable IT organizations to provide the business with greater agility, lower cost and lower risk. Along the way, you just might become a cloud hero, too.
Before you head off on your trip, we thought we’d give you some glimpses of the 20-minute, CGI-animated short. The trailer is embedded below, followed by 10 notable stills. The visuals raise an obvious question for “Star Wars” fans of all ages: How can you not give this stuff four stars?

Before we get to the photos, here’s a slightly expanded synopsis: The time has come for humanity’s first interstellar trek. The destination? Terranuvem, the cloud planet. Chief Engineer Cyrus Agarwal has been chosen to ready a ship for the voyage. He must make the right architectural choices to transform the ship for the long journey and be prepared for the unknown. He will be tested and will overcome challenges during the mission. Join Cyrus and the crew of the Stratus for a unique, sci-fi movie experience while learning key success factors for your own journey to private cloud.
A breakout session following the movie will provide strategic cloud insights for IT pros. That’s important, because as enterprise adoption of cloud computing accelerates, organizations must have a roadmap for moving to an enterprise cloud. Your first step is planning, then deploying and finally the ongoing process of supporting and delivering cloud services. The session will explore different approaches for implementing a cloud, and will offer best-practices information on how organizations can successfully manage the process of cloud migration.
