2.6 What Else does Oracle VM Require?

Two fundamental parts of the Oracle VM infrastructure, storage and networking, are not provided as part of the product itself, but are required in order for the product to function properly. Since the type of storage that a deployment may use can vary dependent on the deployment's requirements, Oracle VM provides support for a range of different storage types and includes mechanisms to enable different support types within the environment. Equally, network design and configuration can vary depending on requirements, hardware and cabling. Oracle VM caters to a range of complex network configurations and provides tools to configure systems within the environment to connect to each other according to a specific network design.
