During this holiday season, it's increasingly important that your virtualization infrastructure delivers a complete highly-available architecture to meet your business requirements.
At Oracle, virtualization is a feature of the overall software stack. Solving the
whole stack is where the real value is and what our customers are
looking for. Oracle is providing solutions to address the whole stack, –
from top to bottom – software which can be managed, provisioned,
clustered, is highly available, secure, and understood as a whole, not
just piece by piece.
To explore the benefits of using Oracle VM server virtualization, the simple way is to follow the detailed instructions from Oracle VM Hands-on Labs which we talked about during the previous blog. The hands-on labs leverage Oracle VM VirtualBox on your laptop or
personal computer. With easy setup and by following simple steps, you
can quickly create an Oracle VM server virtualization demonstration or
learning environment with full Oracle software stack.
Today we want to highlight one of the labs - Build a Complete Highly-Available Oracle VM Architecture from Server to App, which was created by Simon Coter, Consulting Technical Manager from Oracle.
In this lab, you will learn the best practices
of implementing and using a complete Oracle VM high-availability (HA) solution. This
lab helps to demonstrate how Oracle products such as Oracle VM, Oracle Linux,
KSplice and Oracle Clusterware (all products included with appropriate Oracle Linux and
Oracle VM Support subscriptions) allows to create a solution that is able to cover all the HA requirements. This lab also walks you through the managing, by
Oracle Clusterware, of a custom web-application. The implementation of this lab
helps to deploy an enterprise-proven high-available infrastructure software
layer at zero license cost to your virtualization or Linux environment.
I encourage you to learn the HA best practices from the hands-on lab, then apply them to your Oracle VM deployment. Enjoy your holidays!
