New release of Oracle VM now available

18 May 2012 Redwood Shores - Oracle has made available Oracle VM Server for x86 Release 3.1, the latest release of Oracle's server virtualization solution designed to support rapid application deployment and simplify data centre management from applications to disk.

Enhanced user interface is designed to significantly simplify ease of use for virtualization administrators and help reduce deployment times.

Key new capabilities improve storage availability and back-up support and hardware compatibility.

Oracle VM's Windows drivers (PV 3.0.1) and virtualization implementation have been validated as part of the Microsoft Server Virtualization Vendor Programme (SVVP).

Three new pre-built, pre-configured Oracle VM Templates for the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3; Oracle PeopleSoft Financials and Supply Chain Management 9.1; and Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c add to the more than 100 available templates that enable faster application deployment.

The intuitive user interface of Oracle VM 3.1 Manager provides streamlined wizards for easy access to tasks, fast completion of work flows and simple large-scale VM deployments in a Web browser interface.

Enhanced storage configuration capabilities allow external NFS access to virtual machine storage for easy back-up. Additionally, iSCSI and Fibrechannel-based storage repositories can now be quickly copied or moved from one cluster and to another, including across a wide area network, to facilitate availability and disaster recovery.

Oracle VM is integrated with Oracle Enterprise Manager and Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center, which are both included as part of an Oracle VM subscription. The combination of Oracle VM, Oracle Enterprise Manager, and Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center provides a complete virtualization and Cloud solution at a lower in cost than comparable offerings.

"Making it easier to deploy and manage enterprise applications in the data centre and Cloud is the driver behind Oracle's application-driven approach to virtualization", stated Wim Coekaerts, Senior Vice President of Oracle Linux and Virtualization. "Oracle VM 3.1 introduces a number of user interface enhancements designed to improve ease of use for administrators, and storage related features that can increase flexibility when migrating Virtual Machine storage repositories. With this new release, customers should find it significantly easier to manage their applications and virtual environments and at the same time lower their cost."
