06 Nov 2014 Oracle VM.Built for Virtualizing Enterprise Applications [39248]
White Paper (10-pages)

Virtualization technologies offer well-established benefits: consolidation, improved utilization, and greater IT flexibility in applying resources to workloads. But Oracle VM is the only virtualization solution that Oracle tests extensively at extreme scale and fully certifies for Oracle Database deployments on x86 servers.

Oracle VM is designed specifically for Tier-1 applications deployed as virtual guests. Oracle continues to make design decisions in line with enterprise requirements for security, performance, scalability, stability, and supportability. The lightweight Xen hypervisor offers clear advantages for security, reliability, and performance. Open source Xen and Linux technologies enhance the product's stability, providing a strong code base to which Oracle and other community developers can contribute ongoing security, performance, and reliability improvements. And lastly, the cost model for Oracle VM helps IT managers conserve today's shrinking budgets. Oracle VM is free to download and use, and Oracle charges only a low annual fee for enterprise support...

12 May 2014 How to install Oracle VM server (x86)? [36390]
Step By Step Guide

Lingeswaran writes, "Oracle VM for X86 is a native hypervisor which is directly runs on the host's hardware. This hypervisor is based on xen technology and it requires very small footprint on the hard drive to install it. Oracle VM server is directly installed on the baremetal computer and it contains the oracle VM agent to manage the communication with oracle VM manager. By default, this hypervisor system is called dom0 (Domain zero) which also be called privileged domain since it has direct access with hardware. Virtual machines will be called as domU which is unprivileged domain and doesn't have direct control on the hardware..."

Network Computing, March 31st, 2014

"If I were to choose one technology breakthrough that completely revolutionized the way data centers are designed and managed, I'd choose server virtualization platforms like VMware, Hyper-V, Xen, and KVM. There are a number of reasons why server virtualization has been so beneficial, including hardware cost savings, decreased data center footprint, and eliminating vendor lock-in..."

09 Jan 2014 Xen Mirage: The less-is-more cloud OS [34464]
InfoWorld, January 9th, 2014

"The less, the better. That's the philosophy underscoring Mirage, a new operating system created by the Xen Project, the same folks who gave us the Linux Xen hypervisor.

Originally discussed back in 2010, Mirage was developed to solve one specific problem and solve it well: to support the kinds of network application loads that run on cloud infrastructure. A 1.0 release of the OS emerged last December -- it's now up to 1.03, thanks to brisk user feedback -- and is ready for download, with binaries available for x86 and ARM processors..."
