Oracle’s Storage Certification program enables established storage partners to qualify their storage systems for use with Oracle VM using an Oracle supplied storage qualification test kit. When a storage vendor enables the Oracle VM Storage Connect plug-in, their customers will be able to provision that vendor’s storage through the Oracle VM Manager. This will enable simpler management of virtual infrastructure, as well as faster provisioning of solutions in a cloud environment.
EMC storage, including VMAX and VNX, has been tested using the Oracle ® VM Storage Connect Certification kit to achieve Storage Certification with Oracle VM Release 3.3. and now listed on the Oracle HCL website for Oracle VM. This storage certification required strong collaboration between Oracle and EMC to ensure that adequate testing had been completed and the results met the highest standards. The rigorous process ensures that customers have full support from both Oracle and EMC.
