Friday Spotlight: Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.0 is out!

Happy Friday!

I know a lot of folks use Oracle VM VirtualBox to run Oracle Linux VMs. I do this myself every day. The ability to run multiple machines with different operating systems on a laptop is incredibly helpful. For example, you can do Docker development in Oracle Linux on your Macbook. Or if you're running Linux as your main OS, you could have a Windows VM, maybe for some pesky corporate apps that won't run on Linux. The possibilities are just endless.

Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.0 was released this week, with a number of key features. Things like:

  • Runtime disk encryption
  • Drag and drop between nearly all host and guest combinations (including my typical Mac host->Oracle Linux guest setup)
  • USB 3.0 support
  • Headless launch support (say you need a local server VM running in the background!)
  • Performance improvements with paravirtualization for newer Linux and Windows guests

And a lot more.

Have a look at the Oracle Virtualization blog post for more details, and go grab Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.0 here.

Have a great week!

OTN Sys Admin Days - Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux (Sep. 8th, Sacramento, CA)

The second OTN Sys Admin Day will take place on Thursday, September 08, 2011. It will be from 8:00am to 4:00pm at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel (1230 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95814).

Attendance is free and there will be two parallel tracks about Oracle Linux and Oracle Solaris. The sessions will be very hands-on and participants will have to bring their own laptops to perform the exercises. We'll be using virtual appliances running in VirtualBox for the labs, so make sure you have it installed already when you arrive!

Below is the planned agenda for this event. This is a free event and the number of seats is limited, so please register soon!
