(The Hosting News) – There’s big news from Oracle. The database company recently announced the latest version on its line of server virtualization software, Oracle VM 3.0.
With the announcement, the company stated, “Oracle VM 3.0 is suitable for all datacenter workloads and features new policy-based management capabilities, advanced storage management via the Oracle VM Storage Connect plug-in API; centralized network configuration management, improved ease-of-use and Open Virtualization Format (OVF) support.”
And as usual, with releases, there’s competition. Compared to virtualization company VMWare, Oracle advertises the latest Oracle VM as having greater scalability. In fact, Oracle says it’s better by four times.
Another feature of the latest version includes a simplified automating and streamlining process. As for supporting different operating systems, 3.0 is ready for Microsoft Windows, Oracle Linux, and Oracle Solaris.
Commenting on the matter in a press release, Oracle Linux and Virtualization Senior VP Wim Coekaerts stated, “Oracle VM 3.0’s application-driven approach to virtualization makes management of the hardware-software stack easier by enabling customers to deploy, manage and scale applications and resources more dynamically, increasing their operating efficiencies and lowering costs.”
Meanwhile, faster deployment means more efficiency for users’ data centers, which is something the company is looking to provide for with the new release.
The news comes as computer company Dell also recently discussed virtualization by affirming that its latest EqualLogic arrays come with compatibility for VMWare, an Oracle competitor.
