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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
