Yes, it's true: the title is not a typo. We have an Oracle VM (OVM) template that works against any E-Business Suite Release 12 version. It works against your current E-Business Suite Release 12 installs, whether physical or virtual. Instructions for downloading these new templates are here:
We listened to you: you wanted a small OVM template, and this one is small at around ~600MB. How does this work?
On first boot, OracleVM machines based on this template will prompt for an exported Linux EBS shared file system location. They will mount it and create an Apps middle tier node which you can use to scale up your existing EBS instance or to start a new instance. If you have development or testbed environments where you can re-use the database, this template is an easy way to create new Linux middle tiers. Your Feedback is Welcome
We're extremely interested in hearing about your use cases and your experiences with our new templates and virtualization kit. Tell us what you think via our new OVM Templates discussion forum
