Oracle recently announced the general availability of Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager. This new server virtualization management platform can be easily deployed to configure, monitor, and manage an Oracle Linux Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) environment with enterprise-grade performance and support from Oracle.  Installing the new Manager and getting Oracle Linux KVM servers connected for your test or development environment is simple and can be done very quickly.

Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager 4.2.8 can be installed from the Oracle Linux Yum Server or the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Network.  The steps to get up and running from these two sites are outlined below:

  3. # yum install ovirt-engine

  4. Run the engine-setup command to configure Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager.

  5. Add Oracle Linux KVM Compute Hosts, Storage and Logical Networks - and then create your new Virtual Machines.
