Oracle offers virtualization template tool

Company looks to make it easier to leverage virtualization

Oracle will delve further into the server virtualization space Wednesday,  offering a template-building tool to speed up deployments based on the open source Oracle VM software product.

The  company will use the OpenSourceWorld conference in San Francisco as a launching platform for Oracle VM Template Builder, an open source graphical tool for end users and IVS. The tool leverages Oracle Enterprise Linux JeOS (Just enough OS) scripts for developing pre-packaged virtual machines.

[ Earlier this week, Virtualization vendor VMware bought Java software technology company SpringSource. ]

"These are virtual machines that contain preinstalled, preconfigured software, and basically, once you have that, anytime you have a need to put in a new system, you can copy the files," said Monica Kumar, Oracle senior director of Linux and open source product marketing.

Oracle also will offer a VM template for its Siebel CRM product, allowing for fast setup of a full Siebel environment, Monica said. The company also will roll out a test kit for testing of a stack before deployment as part of the Oracle Validated Configurations Program.

Oracle VM Template Builder, the test kit, and the Siebel template are free, but users must have a license for Siebel CRM.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
