Oracle VM 3.4.4 - Better Hardware Support and Increased Performance

Honglin Su
Sr. Director of Product Management

One of the significant enhancements of Oracle VM 3.4.4 is that the dom0 kernel for Oracle VM Server has been updated to Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 4 Update 4 (UEK R4 U4) in this release. This is important for the new hardware support, especially the new Intel Skylake processor based system since some configurations may require the new kernel at the boot time.

The updated Xen hypervisor along with the dom0 kernel delivers performance and scalability improvements. Read Oracle VM Release Note for the complete list of the enhancements and bug fixes.

You can follow the instructions to download the software and review the documentation to plan the software installation and upgrade accordingly.
