News Facts 


 
--  Oracle today announced the general availability of Oracle VM Release
    3.2, a key component in Oracle's desktop to data center virtualization
    portfolio, providing greater operational efficiency with improved
    ease-of-use, and more automated processes including full command-line
    support.
--  Oracle VM Manager now offers unified virtualization management for
    Oracle SPARC T-Series Servers running Oracle VM Server for SPARC as
    well as x86-based servers running Oracle VM Server for x86.

  
Greater Operational Efficiency and Increased Flexibility at a Fraction
of the Cost  


 
--  Designed for ease of use and rapid deployment, new features of Oracle
    VM 3.2 include:
    --  Broader deployment choices
        --  In addition to x86 virtualization management, Oracle VM
            Manager can now discover SPARC servers and create and manage
            Oracle VM Server for SPARC domains to allow unified and
            centralized management in mixed data centers, improving
            operational efficiency.
        --  Oracle VM Manager also includes MySQL Enterprise Edition for
            use as the management repository at no additional cost. Oracle
            VM customers can now choose to use Oracle Database Enterprise
            Edition, Oracle Database Standard Edition or MySQL Enterprise
            Edition as the Oracle VM Manager repository when deploying in
            production environments.
    --  Greater automation and ease-of-use, for more efficiency in large
        environments
        --  Full command-line support enables easy automation: Oracle VM
            Manager Command Line Interface (CLI) supports the same
            functions as the Oracle VM Manager browser interface. Common
            tasks can be scripted and fully automated, saving time and
            lowering the risk of human error.
        --  Automated Oracle VM Manager back-up: When using MySQL
            Enterprise Edition as the Oracle VM Manager database, the
            management repository is automatically backed-up, permitting
            rapid recovery of the management environment if needed.
        --  Tag objects for faster identification of key groups in large
            environments: Allows custom tags to be created and used to
            filter the view of VMs and servers in the user interface (UI),
            enabling users to quickly identify and act on specific subsets
            of VMs or servers.
        --  "Multi-select" of objects: Enables users to take action on
            multiple objects in one step for faster operations in large
            environments.
        --  At-a-glance health status: A health status tab in the Oracle
            VM Manager UI offers expanded and summarized health and status
            reporting on VM statistics such as memory and CPU usage,
            allowing for rapid identification of issues before they become
            problems.
        --  Direct import of virtual machines into an Oracle VM Manager
            environment: Reduces the number of steps required to move VMs
            into an Oracle VM Manager installation.
--  Oracle has also delivered Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.0, providing a
    range of important new features such as automated secure live
    migration, power management, and dynamic resource management, enabling
    best-in-class cloud infrastructure services with the Oracle SPARC
    T-Series servers.
--  With Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.0, users can live migrate Oracle
    Solaris 10 and Oracle Solaris 11 logical domains simply and securely
    across differing CPU types, using cpu crypto accelerators, to permit
    zero downtime cutovers of domains to newer generation environments.
--  Oracle VM continues be available as a free download with zero license
    cost and world-class enterprise support.
