New Oracle VM template : Oracle 11g Release 2 + Real Application Cluster patchset 3 (18.104.22.168)
By Wcoekaer-Oracle on Sep 23, 2011
Our good friend Saar has created and uploaded a new set of the super cool Oracle VM RAC templates.
The new version is available through My Oracle Support(MOS) and the patchset number is 12694014. Customers with MOS access can go download them and deploy the latest and greatest version of Oracle 11gR2 22.214.171.124 RAC.
As always these templates are highly automated, super easy ways to install large Oracle RAC clusters with little to no effort. They configure the database instances, ASM/storage, clusterware/grid infrastructure and everything. Soup to nuts so to speak. They're the perfect example of how full stack virtualization and product integration can save tremendous amounts of time (and money). In the best case, just dd a simple config file to a device and you don't even have to log into any of the VMs at all! All software available, download, install, test, production. No trial versions, no downloads from different vendors, all nicely combined.
