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.
