VM is engineered for open cloud infrastructure. We released the latest
Oracle VM 3.4.2 last month at Oracle OpenWorld. I'm happy to see good feedback from our customers.
- "You could upgrade VM Manager first, and then upgrade physical servers one by one. Also, live migration will still work even though Hypervisors are at a different release version."
- "User interface is also more responsive. I loved those pop-up messages in the Job Summary window about failed messages. Just hover over the message and you instantly see it. Reports are also very handy as they allow you to export entire server pool configuration into a single file."
Customers are encouraged to upgrade to the latest Oracle VM 3.4.2. Together with Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c Release 2, you are able to utilize the existing software and build your cloud infrastructure today.
