Oracle VM 3.1.1 is here

It has been a while since I have update my blog, but been very busy :-) Great news OVM 3.1.1 can now be download. It offers e.g new GUI, new features like Cold Storage migration, and many other things. But alltogether a great product. (see data sheet)

 

To all of you who does not know OVM, Oracle has made one of these funny "Server Virtualization for Dummies" you can find it here or else I recommend you go an take a look at these diffrent videos.

But if I had to shortly describe what OVM is then it is a great alternative to VMware, Windows Hyper V.

It gives you the possiblity to virtualise the Oracle Database in the best way and performance. 

When you buy an Oracle server with support, it gives you the support for both HW and SW in one packet, so basicly an easy and fast way of getting started on the Oracle Red Stack.

If you read my Blog there are other benefits by using HW and SW together.

But anyway OVM 3.1.1 is really becoming a nice product with a lot of nice features. (see data sheet)

I have made a set of new OVM 3.1.1 videos you can have a look at.

Importing, Pool, Network etc and many more.

remember its free to download and use OVM, so why not get started.

Hi Steen

Is Virtualbox consider a "hard partioning" virtualization technology?

Per the definition found linked below, it's unclear to me.

Hi AC
According to the document, Virtualbox is NOT a valid way to do "hard partioning". You have to choose one of the aproved technologies eg. OVM, Solaris. Please look under the headline "Hard Partitioning"
If you want to see an example on how "hard partioning" is working you could take a look here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zdWiJF7oiE.

Best regards
Steen
