Your server is compatible for use with Oracle VM 2.2.2. Oracle VM is a virtualization environment platform that enables users to create and manage virtual machines (VMs). These virtual machines exist on the same physical server but behave like independent physical servers. Each virtual machine created with Oracle VM has its own virtual CPUs, operating system, network interfaces, and storage.
Oracle VM consists of the following components:
Oracle VM Manager: A web application that acts as the user interface for creating and managing your virtual machines. This includes virtual machine creation (including templates), life cycle management (deploying, migrating, and deleting), and resource management (ISO files, templates, and shared storage resources).
Oracle VM Server: A lightweight, secure virtualization environment based on Xen hypervisor used to run virtual machines and the Oracle VM Agent.
Oracle VM Agent: Installed on Oracle VM Server, it communicates with Oracle VM Manager and includes a web services API for managing the Oracle VM Server, server pools, and resources.
The following topics describe the installation of Oracle VM and are included in this section:
