Bring your Oracle VM workloads to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Omair Gillani
Sr. Principal Product Manager

We are excited to announce the availability of Oracle's latest server virtualization product, Oracle VM 3.4 on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. You can now bring any of your existing Oracle VM-based workloads “as is” and run them on Oracle Cloud. This includes industry-leading Oracle Database products. The highly scalable and high performing Oracle VM deployments in the cloud can now take advantage of Oracle’s innovative on-demand bare metal compute instances. Getting started is easy with the Oracle VM Requirements and Installation Guide.

Oracle customers building new infrastructure in the cloud already benefit from the native virtualization offered by pre-built images for Oracle Linux, Microsoft Windows, Ubuntu and CentOS. Now they can also move existing virtualized workloads to the cloud with a simple lift and shift to Oracle VM on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s pre-packaged images for Oracle VM include (1) Oracle VM Server - a lightweight and secure virtualization platform that runs virtual machines on x86 bare metal hardware, and (2) Oracle VM Manager - an application that allows you to configure and manage your Oracle VM environment.

Oracle VM offers a certified virtualization solution for your workloads that:

  • Enables rapid enterprise application deployment, such as Oracle Database, Middleware, and Applications as well as many non-Oracle applications.
  • Supports the latest Oracle Linux, Microsoft Windows, Oracle Solaris, and many other Linux distros. You can also run many legacy operating systems on Oracle VM.
  • Applies existing Oracle VM on-premises knowledge, practices, tools, and support to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure deployments.
  • Easily migrates workloads from on-premises to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

You can setup a basic Oracle VM environment with a single bare metal instance for the hypervisor and a small VM for the Oracle VM Manager instance. For the hypervisor you can use either high-speed, low latency local NVMe storage of DenseIO compute instances, or highly durable Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Block Storage.

Oracle VM images are available in all Oracle Cloud Infrastructure regions including Phoenix, Ashburn, and Frankfurt. If you have any questions about Oracle VM on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, please feel free to reach us at oraclevm-oci-info_ww_grp@oracle.com.
