Oracle Virtualization is an Oracle product. It is a software solution that works well with the operating system and is used for virtualising hardware. Oracle Virtualization helps visualise one or more physical machines for various reasons, including performance optimisation and better utilisation of available resources. Oracle Virtualization is not a part of Oracle Locker but is a component of Oracle Enterprise Virtualization (OVX).
Oracle Virtualization is a virtual hardware method to provide virtual servers on a central server. Virtual servers are isolated systems on a single physical server, each having its operating system, software, devices and configurations. Virtualisation over dedicated servers has become very popular in recent years due to the advantages of portability, high availability and cost-effectiveness. Oracle Virtualization is used for a wide range of virtual server implementations, including desktop, high-end server, low-end server and containers. Oracle Virtualization is not the same as Oracle Virtual Memory, an in-memory type of virtual memory provided on the server-side only.
Oracle Virtualization comes with installing the Oracle server, which can be either Linux or Windows. C can use Oracle Virtualization and Oracle Linux or Sun and use Oracle Virtualization to run Oracle applications on a virtual machine or a physical server. Oracle Virtualization provides a complete server solution that supports multiple platforms such as Sun OS and Microsoft Windows, operating on any hardware type. Can implement Oracle Virtualization on several different operating systems, including Oracle Information Systems, SunOS, Linux, IBM Linux and others.
Oracle Virtualization Server is also known as Virtual Server. Virtualisation is a technique for running applications and programs in a virtual environment that separates the hardware and software on the physical machines and makes them interchangeable. Oracle Virtualization Server offers various virtual servers options, ranging from the most basic to the most comprehensive. Oracle Virtualization includes the use of virtualisation technologies such as VDI, IMA or containers. Oracle Virtualization aims to allow multiple installations of Oracle Enterprise Database11g and the Virtual Assistant service on one server.
Oracle Enterprise Database11g is a highly-scaleable and flexible database management system, offering extensive capabilities for complete control over the enterprise’s data. Oracle Virtualization gives users the ability to run applications and code in isolated containers, customised for security and performance. With Oracle Virtualization, the user can combine one’s software and server settings on a virtual machine. C can use Oracle Virtualization in combination with Oracle Enterprise Database11g and the Oracle Enterprise Manager.
Oracle Enterprise Manager helps the administrator create and modify virtual server roles, Virtual Machines, Distributed Transaction Management (DTM) tools, and other resources. Virtual server roles are isolated containers inside the Oracle Virtual Environment accessible to any client applications. They allow users to have access to any services and programs running on these containers. The main advantage of using virtual servers is that the administrator can manage the servers and make configuration changes independently without affecting them. Furthermore, it simplifies the deployment of server environments.
Oracle Virtual Server Roles is divided into two major categories: clustered and independent. Clustered server roles are tightly bound together and run as a group; they have everyday tasks but are separate. Independent server roles run independently from each other and have no shared jobs. For a given Virtual Environment, c can customise virtual Server Roles as per specific requirements. For instance, a Virtual Assistant can run their own clustered server, manage their own logs, etc.
Oracle Enterprise Manager also provides a number of monitoring and testing facilities, including real-time remote debugging, Oracle Sales, Oracle Enterprise Manager snapshots, and more. With Virtualization, all the data for a system is stored in a virtual database, allowing Oracle to optimise its performance. Oracle Virtualization ensures a level of ease of provisioning and deploying new solutions while maintaining costs and scalability at the same time. Oracle Virtual Systems has become an integral part of various enterprise systems, and the advantages they provide are numerous.
