Oracle VM Overview

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.

Your server is compatible for use with Oracle VM minimum version 3.0. For the latest list of supported operating systems, refer to the Sun Blade X3-2B (formerly Sun Blade X6270 M3) Product Notes for your server.

Note - If you purchased a pre-installed version of Oracle VM, follow the instructions in your server's installation guide for configuring the preinstalled software.

Oracle VM includes the following components:

Supported Software Versions and Updates

The most recent version of this document, other server-specific documents, and related documents are available online in the server module documentation library at:
