Building a virtual datacenter with Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12c is the subject that Scott Elvington tackles in a recent post on oracle.com, where he writes a step-by-step approach to guide readers through the process. It is one of the great strengths of Ops Center 12c, Elvington contends, that it enables users to create a virtual data center that abstracts one's compute, storage and networking resources that can be segmented into accounts. These accounts can then be made available to distinct audiences who can self-provision virtual resources as needed within the resource constraints or quotas defined by the administrator. By way of example, Elvington shows how to create a virtual data center (vDC) consisting of a pair of Oracle Solaris 10 servers, a NAS share and a group of VLAN tagged networks. Once the vDC is created, the writer demonstrates how to set aside a portion of those resources for a QA Testing group and shows how a user within that group can create a virtual server connected on a virtual private network.
