System virtualization is a technology that enables multiple operating system (OS) instances to execute independently on shared hardware. Functionally, software deployed to an OS hosted in a virtualized environment is generally unaware that the underlying platform has been virtualized. Some testing has been performed on selected system virtualization and OS combinations to help validate that the products continue to function on properly sized and configured virtualized environments as they do on non-virtualized systems.

For this release, support is provided for any OS running on the Oracle VM technology, provided that the OS is already supported natively for the Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 ( software. Certification is not provided for every combination of OS and hardware, and support relies on the underlying Oracle VM technology implementation.

Performance may be impacted when deploying Directory Server Enterprise Edition in a virtualized environment. ODSEE also supports Solaris Zones and Logical Domains (LDoms), which are part of Oracle VM technology.
