Friday Spotlight: More on Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.0

Happy Friday!

It’s been an exciting week here with the release of Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.0! I’ve used it daily for years and it’s indispensable. Here are the some of things I use it for:

  • Running different operating systems: my most common configuration is running Oracle Linux in a VM on a Mac.
  • Testing out multi-tier architectures on a single machine: I do this sometimes with Oracle Secure Global Desktop, using a combination of Linux, Solaris, and Windows Server guests.
  • And I think my favorite is having my work environment (again, an Oracle Linux VM) encapsulated so whenever I change machines, I only have to install VirtualBox and am back up and running immediately.

It’s just a great tool.

There was a nice article published yesterday by ITworld, where they discussed some of the new features of Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.0 and got some additional comments from Oracle senior vice president Linux and virtualization, Wim Coekaerts. Have a a read.

If you’d like information on commercial support for Oracle VM VirtualBox, you can have a look here.

And if you haven’t downloaded 5.0 yet, go get it.

Have a great week!
