Oracle VM: A Peek Into the Future
By Adam Hawley on May 07, 2009
I haven't been blogging the last couple of weeks as I've had some internal deadlines, but luckily you've seen some good content from others on the Oracle VM team, including Honglin's entries below.
This time, I want to call your attention to a couple more blog entries from the team that are on another blog - this time the blog of my boss Wim Coekaerts, VP of Linux and Virtualization Engineering where he talks about some Oracle VM (or closely related...) projects that are particularly cool, namely our up-coming management CLI and webservices API, but also the OCFS2 "Reflink" project. Reflink is generically extremely useful for about any application, but is also intended to benefit Oracle VM in particular in expected up-coming releases.
These projects are expected to really increase the ability of users, integrators and other 3rd parties to automate processes around Oracle VM (API/CLI) as well as do things like radically improve performance and efficiency for things like cloning, provisioning, and snapshotting (Reflink).
Take a look.
