Oracle VM blade Cluster Reference Configuration January 3, 2011,
Volume 155, Issue 1
Oracle has released its new Oracle VM blade cluster reference configuration for Sun Blade 6000 modular systems, writes Monica Kumar in Oracle's Virtualization Blog which provides high availability via the blade cluster as well as a documented best practice guide. The guide helps reduce deployment time required in assembling and integrating software and hardware systems from multiple vendors by up to 98 percent while reducing cost as well for customers implementing highly virtualized applications or private cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) architectures. Once ready, according to the Oracle press release, the infrastructure can be used to easily deploy enterprise applications in a matter of minutes to hours as opposed to days/weeks, by using Oracle VM Templates.
