Easy and Rapid Deployment of Application Workloads with Oracle VM

Oracle VM is designed for easy and rapid deployment of application workloads. In addition to allowing for rapid deployment of an entire application stack, Oracle VM now gives administrators more fine-grained control of the application payloads inside the virtual machine.

To get started on Oracle VM Server for x86 or Oracle VM Server fo SPARC, what better solution than to take the corresponding training course.

You can take this training from your own desk, by choosing from a selection of live-virtual events already on the schedule on the Oracle University Portal.

Alternatively, you can travel to an education center to take these courses. Below is a selection of in-class events already on the schedule for each course:

Oracle Virtualization at Oracle OpenWorld 2013, Part 2

If you're attending Oracle OpenWorld 2013 (and we hope you are!), the Schedule Builder tool is now available for you. Schedule Builder lets you register for the sessions you want to attend during the show. If you're interested in Oracle Virtualization, there are a number of sessions, hands on labs, and product demos that will be interesting to you. I covered several of the sessions in part 1 of this series, and in this one I'm going to cover a few more sessions. In the 3rd part of this series, I'll cover the Hands On Labs and demo stations that you can visit.


What's New with Oracle VM Server for x86 and SPARC: A Technical Deep Dive (CON9544)
Oracle VM Server virtualization solutions provide users the best combination of price, performance, certification, and advanced features tailored for ease of deployment and management. Spanning both x86 and SPARC architectures, it's designed to support a diverse set of OS workloads such as Linux, Solaris, and Windows to meet the wide ranging demands of modern IT environments. Join us to get the latest technology updates on Oracle VM Server.

High Availability and Infrastructure Best Practices with Oracle VM (CON11258)
This session will provide practical details and best practices on building and scaling an Oracle VM environment for High Availability for Database and infrastructure best practices. From information gathering and planning to analyzing needs of your environment, you will learn to plan for growth in infrastructure components to accommodate failover, DR, HA and migration. This session will also cover the methods to reduce downtime during events like system upgrades and migration and troubleshooting during system outages.

And in the Develop track:

What's New in Oracle VM VirtualBox (CON9550)
Oracle VM VirtualBox is the world's most popular cross-platform virtualization software, with nearly 100 million downloads. Optimized to run on desktop systems, Oracle VM VirtualBox is an ideal choice for development and testing, and can help ease cross-platform headaches by allowing you to run multiple platforms on your laptop or PC. In this session Oracle experts will cover the latest advancements in Oracle VM VirtualBox, including information on features such as VM Groups, guest automation, resource controls, and more.


One of my favorite features for attendees of Oracle OpenWorld is the "Focus On" documents that group together similar content as kind of a quick reference guide. This year, Focus On documents are done with a cool dynamic web page, so any changes that happen in the next few weeks (for example, when the Hands On Labs signups open up in the next week or so, or if a session gets oversubscribed and is moved to a bigger room), the Focus On page will automatically update. So, please go here to have a look at the most up to date Focus on Virtualization, and then bookmark it for future reference:

Focus on Virtualization

This year's show is shaping up to be a big one! Most of the folks that post on this blog will be there along with a large number of folks from the Oracle virtualization team, and we're very excited to meet you in person!

-Chris

Designing, Creating and Testing an Oracle VM 3.2 Environment

We just published a new technical white paper written by Wayne Lewis, Principal Sales Consultant from Oracle VM and Oracle Linux sales team.

The paper here focuses on the Oracle VM Server for x86 and Oracle VM Manager. This document describes a plan you could follow to ensure that your Oracle VM deployment is organized, repeatable and tested before you mark it ready for production. The plan is broken down into three key stages, each of which may touch many aspects of the overall deployment.

  • Stage 1: Designing your Oracle VM environment
  • Stage 2: Creating your Oracle VM environment
  • Stage 3: Testing your Oracle VM environment

Contained within this document are a number of tips, hints, instructions and even a test plan check-sheet for you to use when planning, building and testing your Oracle VM environment. At the end of the document are several Appendices containing useful reference material related to the deployment of Oracle VM, including some reference configuration files.

The white paper is definitively a handy guide to help you design, create and test your Oracle VM 3.2 environment. For the latest information, best practices white papers and webinars, please visit http://oracle.com/virtualization.

Announcing Oracle VM 3.2 - Delivers Unified Management and Enhanced Automation Capabilities for x86 Servers and SPARC Servers

We are pleased to announce Oracle VM 3.2, which delivers unified management and enhanced automation capabilities for x86 servers and SPARC servers. Read the blog here for a detailed list of the new features.

The new software highlights:

  • Unified server virtualization management for x86 and SPARC
  • MySQL database support as the management database with automated backup
  • Greater automation with Oracle VM Manager Command Line Interface (CLI)
  • Lots of manageability, usability, scalability and robustness improvements to help users manage their large and growing environments
One of the key enhancements is the ability to discover and manage Oracle VM Server for SPARC, thus creating a single management console for both SPARC and x86 virtual machines. Users can create SPARC server pools, virtual machines, as well as manage networking and storage in the same way this is done for x86 environments. In addition, SPARC users can quickly provision new virtual machines from assemblies and template in the same simple way as it is done for x86. This allows deploying applications in minutes and significantly improves productivity for SPARC users.

Please review the white paper below to get started with the new capability of Oracle VM Manager:

The nice thing about the unified management capability from Oracle VM Manager is the common management framework, and it is the same set of APIs that apply to both x86 and SPARC server virtualization. For example,  full command-line support enables easy automation at the Oracle VM Manager level. Oracle VM Manager Command Line Interface (CLI) supports the same functions as the Oracle VM Manager browser interface. Common tasks can be scripted and fully automated, saving time and lowering the risk of human error. You learn one set of APIs, but you have the flexibility to manage both x86 and SPARC server virtualization.
