New Oracle Templates For A Virtualised Database

The new Oracle VM Templates are, as of last week, now available. The pre-installed and pre-configured software images give the customer a virtualized database at their finger tips. The Templates are quick, easy and consistent in the deployment of a software stack – fully configured; and virtual and cloud environments, fully enabled. Management is simplified, the approach, innovative.

Thanks to the new Oracle VM Templates, Oracle Real Application Clusters can deploy a database cluster quickly and simply for development and production areas on Oracle VM. Combine the Real Application Clusters with Oracle VM for x86 and we have a database cloud solution, easily within reach, with everything you would imagine a fully virtualized cloud environment to have.

“Only Oracle offers the unique combination of clustering and virtualization,” says Wim Coekaerts, senior vice president, Linux and Virtualization Engineering for Oracle. “Using an Oracle VM infrastructure combined with the performance, scalability and resiliency of Oracle Real Application Clusters and Oracle VM Templates, we help customers significantly reduce deployment and operational costs while enabling a highly available infrastructure.”

The VM combined with Clusters combination is a winning one on every count – easier installation and configuration; cheaper maintenance costs and operation costs, and a speedier trip to market. Even in the face of hardware and software failure – database availability is constant.

Oracle has made it easy – the way it should be.
