Enterprise Manager offers the following management pack for virtualization management:
Oracle VM Management Pack
The following sections in this chapter describe the licensed features and links for this pack.
Oracle VM is a platform that provides a fully equipped environment for effectively leveraging the benefits of virtualization technology. Oracle VM enables you to deploy operating systems and application software within a supported virtualization environment.
The Oracle VM Management Pack offers scalable, low-cost server virtualization that supports both Oracle and non-Oracle applications. Consisting of open source server software and an integrated Web browser-based management console, Oracle VM provides an easy-to-use graphical interface for creating and managing virtual server pools, running on x86 and x86-64-based systems, across an enterprise.
Users can create and manage Virtual Machines (VMs) that exist on the same physical server but behave like independent physical servers. Each virtual machine created with Oracle VM has its own virtual CPUs, network interfaces, storage, and operating system. With Oracle VM, users have an easy-to-use browser-based tool for creating, cloning, sharing, configuring, booting, and migrating VMs.
The Oracle VM Management Pack includes the features shown in Table 10–1.
Working environment provisioning
Provision a working environment or application within a short time, enabling faster time to market.
Complete life cycle management
