Oracle VM Templates for Oracle RAC Simplify Deployment and Reduce Costs
By Margaret Hamburger-Oracle on Nov 23, 2010
Oracle just announced new Oracle VM Templates for Oracle Real Application Clusters. So what does that mean for your data center? Well, not only can you simplify deployment of a highly available, virtualized database - you also lower your operational costs.
Oracle VM Templates are also available for Oracle Applications, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Database, Oracle Linux, Oracle Solaris and other Oracle products.
With Oracle Linux JeOS and Oracle VM Template Builder you can reduce your disk footprint by up to 2GB or more per VM, using a "Just enough OS" to facilitate building an OS instance with a bare minimum number of packages needed for your template. This helps reduce your disk footprint per VM, and improves security and reliability of the virtual machine. Of course, you can customize and add packages to the JeOS edition package list to completely tailor to the needs of the application.
