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.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
