    I´m a fan of Oracle Virtualization environments, on Oracle VM-Xen and Virtualbox lastly, for build RAC systems, DG test scenarios and other HA systems.

    I also combine VBOX and OVM for to have a VM HA systems in one big laptop BOX (8GB RAM and in a 2nd 16GB RAm and core i7).

    I'm waiting for the new relase 3.0 Oracle VM for upgrade all my virtual systems and get some of new features for build Cloud prototypes in Oracle sw (HA RAC - OVM - ASM-iSCSI and SOA -WebLogic - BPEL -BPMN), mixed with any others testing flexibility an interoperability.

    I shall be pleased receiving updates about comments and launchings about new releases of sw and templates !.
