I'm sure many of you are interested to know that 64bit Oracle RAC 10.2.0.4 is now certified on Oracle VM in addition to the previously cerrtified 32bit RAC.
As a result, the RAC-on-Oracle VM whitepaper has been updated to reflect this as well as generally updated to reflect the latest in best practices and configuration guidelines. The updated paper can be found here:
Note that you can also navigate to it from the Oracle VM OTN whitepapers page here...
