Agile, reliable and secure DevOps with Oracle Linux and VirtualBox

Simon Coter
Director of Product Management

Building an agile collaboration and communication between Development (Dev) and Operations (Ops) is one of the main goals of modern IT: deploying features into production quickly and, at the same time, detecting and correcting problems when they occur, without disrupting other services, can be obtained by a culture that puts a focus on creating a fast and stable workflow through development and IT operations.

Results with a good DevOps approach:

  • Faster time-to-market: Increase the frequency and accuracy of releases (the automation processes will give much more time to the people)
  • Cost: reduce OPEX by automating processes; this will also prevent human errors and reduce downtime
  • Focus on business: Allow employees to focus on high-value activities (that will also improve employees personal gratification)

Oracle is, at the same time, one of the biggest players in both the Cloud and Software market and, so, DevOps is one of the most important components to grant us best results possible; infrastructure technologies we use at Oracle to build a stable and reliable workflow rely on both container and virtualization solutions.

VirtualBox and Oracle Linux can help you to address most of the DevOps requirement in term of build, test and deploy; while Oracle Linux, with all its Enterprise Features, has been rated as the "Top Rated Operating System for Business", Oracle VM VirtualBox is the most famous, cross-platform, desktop virtualization solution available today.

Those technologies, working with Vagrant, allow to automate and get a reliable, no human-error and reproducible environment in minutes; this is also why, some time ago, we created the official GitHub repository dedicated Vagrant Boxes for Oracle Products and projects, available at https://github.com/oracle/vagrant-boxes .

You can learn more about how your business can get advantage of those technologies and their DevOps approach during the Oracle Code "Practical DevOps with Linux and Virtualization" session at Oracle Open World on Thursday, Oct 25, 10:00AM in room 2018, Moscone West.

To learn more about Oracle Linux and to speak with product experts, visit the Oracle Infrastructure Technologies showcase, booth #120, located in Moscone South, on the right side, just past the Autonomous Database showcase.

See you there!
