Announcing Oracle VM 3.2 - Delivers Unified Management and Enhanced Automation Capabilities for x86 Servers and SPARC Servers

Honglin Su
Sr. Director of Product Management

We are pleased to announce Oracle
VM 3.2
, which delivers unified management and enhanced automation capabilities for x86 servers and SPARC servers. Read the blog here for a detailed list of the new features.

The new software highlights:

  • Unified server virtualization management for x86 and SPARC
  • MySQL database support as the management database with automated backup
  • Greater automation with Oracle VM Manager Command Line Interface (CLI)
  • Lots of manageability, usability, scalability and robustness
    improvements to help users manage their large and growing environments
One of the key enhancements is the ability to discover and manage Oracle VM Server for SPARC, thus creating a single management console for both SPARC and x86 virtual machines. Users can create SPARC server pools, virtual machines, as well as manage networking and storage in the same way this is done for x86 environments. In addition, SPARC users can quickly provision new virtual machines from assemblies and template in the same simple way as it is done for x86. This allows deploying applications in minutes and significantly improves productivity for SPARC users.






















































Please review the white paper below to get started with the new capability of Oracle VM Manager:

The nice thing about the unified management capability from Oracle VM Manager is the common management framework, and it is the same set of APIs that apply to both x86 and SPARC server virtualization. For example,  full command-line support enables easy automation at the Oracle VM Manager level. Oracle VM Manager
Command Line Interface (CLI) supports the same functions as the Oracle
VM Manager browser interface. Common tasks can be scripted and fully
automated, saving time and lowering the risk of human error. You learn one set of APIs, but you have the flexibility to manage both x86 and SPARC server virtualization.
