Oracle updates Oracle VM server virtualisation solution
Oracle VM consists of two components: Oracle VM Server and Oracle VM Manager. The combination of these facilitates central management of virtual machines and storage configurations while the wide range of templates should simplify VM deployment. Oracle is promoting the product as an alternative to VMware vSphere.
The new version includes improvements to the management console and to backup and recovery management. It now has wizards for generating VMs and server pools, the management interface supports drag and drop, and templates can now be used to create multiple clones in a single process. The new version also allows for additional virtual CPUs to be added to running VMs.
