25 May 2013 How to go Physical to Virtual with Oracle Solaris Zones using Enterprise Manager Ops Center [31101]
By Rodney Lindner

Rodney Lindner writes, "Many customers have large collections of physical Solaris 8, 9 and 10 servers in their datacenters and they are wondering how they are going to virtualize them. This leads to a commonly asked question. Can Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12C be used to P2V (Physical to Virtual) my old servers? Ops Center does not have a single button P2V capability, but it is possible for Ops Center to deploy physical servers, LDOMs and branded zones based on flash archives(flars) that have been taken of your existing physical servers. Ops Center achieves P2V by deploying flars and leveraging its patching and automation capabilities, to make the P2V process consistent, repeatable and as cost effective as possible.

As with any virtualization project, there will be a number of things that will need to be updated as you move from a physical to a virtual environment. It is a common misconception that you can virtualize a system and change nothing about it. There are always a few things that have to be changed on an OS or process level to make it compatible with the virtualized environment. As a best practice, there are many more things that should be updated, re-allocated and redesigned as part of a virtualization project but that is a subject for another blog.

In this blog, we will be covering migrating physical servers to Oracle Solaris Zones..."

22 Apr 2013 Solaris 11 Network Virtualization now Possible with Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.0.0.2 [30627]
New Version Allows vNICs on VNets

Jeff Savit addresses the new capability in Oracle VM Server for SPARC, which is that version 3.0.0.2 now supports the removal of restrictions that in earlier versions prevented vNICs on VNets, further allowing Solaris 11 network virtualization. Now, instead of just consolidating servers, users can consolidate a data center's servers and network topologies into a single Solaris instance, setting up multiple isolated virtual networks, associating zones with the different virtual networks, and establishing rules for isolation, connectivity and quality of service (QoS). Savit goes on to explain the use of this new capability, providing the necessary code.

22 Apr 2013 IED Mitigation Strategies and Technology [30714]
Security InfoWatch, April 15th, 2013

"If there's one thing Monday's Boston Marathon bombing has reinforced among Americans, it is that Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) are no longer limited to war zones and other faraway locales - IEDs are a legitimate security threat that must be mitigated by law enforcement to the best of its ability. Due to experiences on the battlefield, government and law enforcement officials, and vendors have the technologies and strategies to do so; however, much more can be done in the name of homeland security to diminish the risk..."

22 Apr 2013 Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center as a Management Tool for Virtualization [30636]
Managing Server Virtualization Technologies Throughout their Lifecycle from One GUI

In Part 8 of an eight-part series on virtualization Elke Freymann describes how to use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to centrally manage server virtualization technologies throughout their lifecycle from one GUI. With Ops Center, it's possible to manage the complete lifecycle of a system, Freymann writes, so why not install Oracle VM Server for x86 on the bare-metal system using Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center. With Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center users can group servers of compatible architecture together, assign them shared storage where virtualized guests can run, define the type of virtualization technology to be used, and then define a server pool.

Features up to 32 SPARC M5 Processors and 32 TB of System Memory

Oracle bills its SPARC M5-32 Server as a massively scalable SMP data center server that is designed for very large business-critical workloads and server consolidation. Exceptional scalability and performance derive from up to 32 SPARC M5 processors and 32 TB of system memory with 6-core, 8 threads per core, SPARC M5 processor with extra large 48 MB shared L3 cache. Built-in capabilities include Oracle’s Dynamic Domains feature, Oracle VM Server for SPARC, and Oracle Solaris Zones. The server runs Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle Solaris 10 (guest domains) with guaranteed binary compatibility and support for legacy applications.
