Easy and Rapid Deployment of Application Workloads with Oracle VM

Oracle VM is designed for easy and rapid deployment of application workloads. In addition to allowing for rapid deployment of an entire application stack, Oracle VM now gives administrators more fine-grained control of the application payloads inside the virtual machine.

To get started on Oracle VM Server for x86 or Oracle VM Server fo SPARC, what better solution than to take the corresponding training course.

You can take this training from your own desk, by choosing from a selection of live-virtual events already on the schedule on the Oracle University Portal.

Alternatively, you can travel to an education center to take these courses. Below is a selection of in-class events already on the schedule for each course:

Oracle Virtualization Friday Spotlight - October 18, 2013

Opening The Oracle VM Templates Blackbox

Oracle VM Templates give you the efficiency of speed and the assurance of no guess work. For those in the know, Oracle VM Guest Additions is a great way to empower you to do more interesting things with the Templates. Today’s blog article is to share the secrets with those who are not content with just treating Oracle VM Templates as a black box.

Oracle VM Guest Additions is a set of packages that can be installed on the guest operating system of a virtual machine running in the Oracle VM environment. These packages provide the tools to allow bi-directional communication directly between the Oracle VM Manager and the operating system running within the virtual machine. OK here’s where the ‘power-user’ part comes in…. This gives your fine-grained control over the configuration and behavior of components running within the virtual machine directly from Oracle VM Manager. You now have the ability to see and direct what goes on inside your VM from Oracle VM Manager.

  • Get a reporting on IP addressing
  • Use the template configuration facility to automatically configure virtual machines as they are first started
  • Send messages directly to a virtual machine to trigger programmed events
  • Query a virtual machine to obtain information pertaining to previous messages

Enough of the theory!

To get hands-on how-to’s and talk directly with the product expert on Oracle VM Guest Additions, Robbie de Meyer, or Oracle VM Templates for Oracle Database and RAC Template expert Saar Maoz, join us for the Oct 24th live webcast. You can also read more about the Oracle VM Guest Additions in the whitepaper.

Open Universities Australia uses Oracle VM to Virtualize Oracle Database and PeopleSoft

Open Universities Australia Realizes Valuable Savings and Simplifies IT with Oracle VM

Deploys Virtualized Oracle Database and Oracle’s PeopleSoft Applications to Production, Development and Disaster Recovery Environments in Campus-Wide Infrastructure Upgrade

Read the entire press release.

Open Universities Australia (OUA) director of ICT, Anthony Russo, was faced with a 3 year cycle of systems upgrade. With tightening budgets to meet growth targets, needing to deliver on cost efficiencies while staying within constraints of existing license footprints and implementing a zero outage operations model, Anthony had to re-evaluate his traditional IT approach with bare metal computing.

Virtualizing Oracle Database and Oracle PeopleSoft Campus applications were a remote option for Anthony due to fear of loss in performance and managing the complexity of the environment with a small IT staff. The environments that would be affected were the hosted development, and cloud based environments for both Production and Disaster Recovery.

However, the looming hardware refresh and software upgrade costs of over $300,000 convinced Anthony to evaluate Virtualization.

Oracle VM claims as the best virtualization technology for Oracle Database and enterprise applications workload were not sufficient data to decide on this important refresh. Anthony embarked on a performance testing validation exercise. To his surprise, his own performance results debunked the performance myths about virtualizing database workloads -- in fact in some cases virtualized workloads on Oracle VM performed better than even on bare metal!

As for the fear of complexity introduced to his IT process by virtualization, this was also debunked with Oracle VM Templates and Oracle Enterprise Manger 12c. His IT team provisioned a multi-node Oracle RAC environment all within a few hours using the Oracle VM Templates with pre-configured Oracle Database, RAC and Oracle Linux. With Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c, the team is able to manage and monitor Oracle VM servers and virtual machines across multiple locations from a single console.

Anthony shares his report findings in a whitepaper “ Oracle VM on Oracle Real Application Clusters, Physical vs. Virtual Database” hosted by the Independent Oracle User Group. Here is a sample of some of the key findings in the report:

Creating a private cloud with Oracle VM and Oracle Enterprise Manager

Oracle VM and Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c used together offer a complete, top to bottom, cloud solution. With Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c (OEM) the user can control everything from provisioning an Oracle VM server through configuration of the virtual environment and all the way to metering and chargeback. And most importantly, all these capabilities are available as part of the Oracle VM support for no extra charge!

For users who have already deployed Oracle VM, adding OEM does not require any changes to the existing environment. The user can take an existing Oracle VM deployment, point OEM to it and from that point on all the functionality available in Oracle VM Manager is also available from OEM. If the user chooses to go back to Oracle VM Manager or temporarily use it for any other reason, he/she can do that at any point in time. 

So, if you have not yet taken the time to look at what Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c can add to your Oracle VM deployment we gathered some resources to help you get started:

Oracle Open World is right around the corner, there we will have several sessions and hands on labs on how to deploy a private cloud using Oracle VM and Oracle Enterprise Manager. You are also welcome to meet the Oracle teams in person at the demo grounds where we will be happy to walk you through a live demo and answer questions.

Oracle VM Receives an A+ in Recent Testing Benchmark

It’s always nice to start off the new fiscal year with some good news and this year it comes at the hands of Francisco Munoz Alvarez, a seasoned expert, and Oracle ACE Director, in the Oracle community. With the help from his employer Revera Limited, a provider of utility computing infrastructure and enterprise data management solutions, Francisco recently compared the performance of Oracle Database workloads running in a bare metal environment versus a virtualized environment (Oracle VM and others). The results were quite telling!

Here’s what they found:
• Oracle VM is the better virtualization technology to run Oracle Databases
• Oracle VM makes a better use of all available resources
• Oracle VM is more scalable and stable for Oracle Databases
• Oracle VM allows better consolidation of loads in a virtual environment
• Oracle VM uses less CPU than non-Oracle virtualization technologies

Francisco and his team also found that without Oracle VM, organizations can have a full physical server (bare metal) with underutilized resources. However, by using Oracle VM organizations will be able to virtualize it to host many Oracle Databases, without sacrificing performance and can make better use of all available database licenses. They also noted a few bonus results including the fact that Oracle VM allows extra high availability and is fully certified and supported by Oracle.

I think Francisco touched on something very important in his report when he concluded by saying, “Many companies around the world are afraid to use virtualization for production databases, as per our experience we can say that it is only a myth. Revera have many production databases running on Oracle VM without any unsatisfied client.”

It’s time to overcome the fear.  As Francisco’s results show, Oracle VM delivers a great solution for enterprise environments!

See what Oracle VM has done for customers of all sizes across a variety of industries worldwide.
