Oracle VM and Oracle Linux pre-validated, pre-tested with FlexPod

As the Oracle community is gathering at IOUG this week sharing news, checking out the latest innovations, the Oracle VM and Oracle Linux team are also busy working to expand our platform validation support. In a collaborative effort with both Cisco and NetApp, we’d like to give you an early glimpse of the upcoming reference architectures for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM with FlexPod:

  • A FlexPod with Oracle VM is scheduled for the second half of 2013  – this Oracle VM architecture offers virtualization coverage for Oracle as well as non-Oracle workloads
  • A FlexPod featuring NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP with Oracle Linux,  coming Jun 30, 2013 – this is the second Oracle Linux bare-metal design
  • A FlexPod with Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne on Oracle Linux, coming April 9, 2013
  • A FlexPod with Oracle Linux, coming June 14, 2013 – this is one of two bare metal designs for running Oracle DB on Oracle Linux
The combined products give customers access to infrastructure designs that are pre-tested and pre-validated building blocks for application consolidation, private cloud migration or data center modernization.
In addition to the benefits of the integrated design and validation, there are specific unique benefits that Oracle VM and Oracle Linux add to FlexPod:
  • Oracle VM – Application-Driven Virtualization difference: Speed Dev/Test/Production application deployment – Using Oracle VM Templates, customers can deploy applications 7-10x faster than traditional virtualization approaches. Entire application stacks including guest OS with Oracle Linux can quickly be deployed or provisioned in hours or minutes. This empowers IT to have a direct impact on the business Quality of Service by enabling more test systems and or respond to end customer requirements more quickly.
  • Enhanced high availability with Oracle Linux: With Ksplice, Oracle Linux kernel updates are installed in seconds, without interrupting running applications or the people using those applications. You can quickly check on the current status of your systems before rolling out updates to your network. Installing updates requires no downtime, so your systems are more available than ever. 
  • Certified by Oracle: All Oracle applications are certified on Oracle VM. This gives customers peace of mind that FlexPod with Oracle VM running Oracle applications are both fully tested and  certified by Oracle
  • Reduce Licensing Cost: with zero licensing cost for both Oracle VM and Oracle Linux and low enterprise support cost, customers can dramatically reduce both capex and opex IT spending. 
We’ll keep you updated as these reference architectures get published. Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to stay informed.

Best Practices to Accelerate Oracle VM Server Deployments

IOUG (Independent Oracle User Group) Virtualization SIG is hosting the webcast on the best practices of Oracle VM server virtualization.

The upcoming event is scheduled on July 11 with the focus on Oracle VM Server on SPARC. Watch the recording here. Areas addressed will include recommended practices for installation, maintenance, performance, and reliability.  Topics will include sizing, resource allocation, multiple I/O domain configurations for availability, secure live migration, selection of I/O backends, and I/O virtualization. 

To learn the best practices on Oracle VM Server for x86,  watch the session replay here. For more white paper about best practices, visit Oracle VM OTN page here.
