Deploying and Managing Applications with Oracle VM Training

Oracle VM is built to support different workloads, with an emphasis on ease of deployment and management of Oracle applications.

In the Oracle VM Server for x86: Administration course, you learn to create server pools to take advantage of your existing storage and networking infrastructure. This will enable you to seamlessly manage storage from a central location using Oracle VM Storage Connect. Using features like anti-affinity groups and Dynamic Resource Scheduling policy, you'll implement and manage the inter-connections between the virtual machines running your multi-tier enterprise applications.

Extensive hands-on practices will guide you through each step for building your virtual environment. With the skills acquired during these exercises, you can scale your virtual environment to support the most demanding workloads.

You can take the Oracle VM Server for x86: Administration course in the following formats:

  • Training-on-Demand: Start training within 24 hours of registering, following lecture material at your own pace through streaming video and booking time to perform lab exercises when suits your schedule.

Friday Spotlight: Oracle VM Templates and Automated Virtual Machine Provisioning

Oracle VM template is a fully pre-installed, pre-configured virtual machine that can be downloaded onto an installed Oracle VM server. An Oracle VM Template may include a single virtual machine, with a single Oracle product such as a single-instance database or WebLogic Server or multiple VMs with multiple Oracle products to facilitate rapid deployment of even the most complex composite applications: this is the foundation of the Application-Driven Virtualization.

Use of Oracle VM Templates eliminates the installation and configuration costs, and reduces the ongoing maintenance costs helping organizations achieve faster time to market and lower cost of operations.

Oracle VM Templates can be downloaded from Oracle Software Delivery Cloud: Just download, import and deploy the Template VM(s) and within minutes you will have a fully installed and configured Oracle environment that you know is completely correct, supported and certified by Oracle. In most cases, deployment times for complex applications can be reduced from weeks to hours.

And this is not all…..

On Oracle VM you can create your own templates, based or not on Oracle Products; so, for example, starting from an existing Oracle VM Template you have the opportunity to build your gold image where you can address all your standards and/or desired changes.


At the same time, you can create a totally new Oracle VM template and evaluate which kind of customization is needed on the first boot of the VM.

This option allows to build an entire fully automated Cloud solution, based on Oracle VM, able to deploy VMs and services in minutes, instead of hours or days.

All these activities can be accomplished easily with this white paper, totally dedicated to the Automated Virtual Machine Provisioning for Oracle VM where concepts like:

  • Oracle VM Messaging System
  • Oracle VM Guest Additions (ovmd and ovm-template-config)
  • Oracle VM CLI
  • Local and remote configuration of a VM

are explained and proved with more examples on different Oracle Linux releases (5/6/7).

To learn more:

If you have any question, feel free to post them on this blog entry.

Have a great weekend.

Friday Spotlight: Why Choose Oracle for Your Private Cloud Infrastructure?

Walking out of the business review meeting, you feel great. You've just found out that you now have a budget to purchase a private cloud infrastructure. Getting the money was the easy part. Now comes the hard part: selection, evaluation and decision.

Let’s start with your requirements: First, you need a private cloud infrastructure that will run the Oracle database and Oracle applications your company is using to run the business. There are few choices in the market. Which one should you choose?

Second, you have heard about private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid cloud. Your company can’t move to public cloud right now. You need to plan for the consolidation of many physical servers first, virtualize to reduce costs and then plan for whichever cloud deployment that will not disrupt the business and profitability of your company. So, which cloud deployment to start?


Third, you have also read about cool new technologies like Docker and Openstack. You would like to explore those technologies and see how they fit into your cloud journey. Where can you learn about this?

While deliberating on these requirements, you see an invite to attend a webcast: Why Choose Oracle for Your Private Cloud Infrastructure? Glancing at the content, you find that this webcast may answer some of your questions. If you attend the webcast, you will:

- Get clarity among different cloud infrastructure options

- Learn how Oracle is using cutting edge technologies, such as Docker and Openstack

- Hear why customers choose Oracle Private Cloud Appliance over other converged infrastructure vendors

There is a live chat, so you can ask the speakers questions to help you in the selection process.

Why not spend an hour to get your answers? You click on the Registration button and mark on your calendar March 8th, 11:00 A.M. Pacific Standard Time.

May be the selection process won’t be so difficult after all.
