Senior Manager, Product Management - Linux and Virtualization
Getting started with VirtualBox and Vagrant is quick and easy! Vagrant provides an easy and fully automated way of setting up a developer environment. In conjunction with Oracle’s VirtualBox, Vagrant is a powerful tool for creating a sandbox environment inside a virtual machine. With this announcement, we introduce this powerful automation to users worldwide as a streamlined way for creating virtual machines with Oracle software fully configured and ready to go inside of them. This is yet another in a series of steps for making the lives of developers easier and more productive. Thanks to the great list of Vagrant Projects, built and maintained by Oracle, you can automate and get Oracle APEX up&running by executing two very simple commands! Further automation and or customization, like deployment of your own Oracle APEX application, can be also added to this Vagrant Project.
Backed by affordable enterprise support for hybrid environments, Oracle Virtualization reduces operation and support costs while increasing IT efficiency and agility—on premises and in the cloud. Oracle Linux KVM is the same hypervisor used in Oracle Cloud and today can be also leveraged to run on-premises workload. The introduction of Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager, built for OSS oVirt, allows to run same hypevisor, on-premises and on-cloud, managed by one unique web management interface; unique advantages of the solution are: Open source optimized by Oracle hypervisor, Simplified management with Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager, Designed for hybrid cloud, Easy to move VMs to cloud, Security updates without rebooting and Hard partitioning for Oracle Software. Oracle Linux Templates as well as Oracle Database templates, built for Oracle Linux KVM, allows to automate and speed-up the deployment of your services; automation, built on cloud-init, allows to automate any configuration option as well as add custom command execution on the first boot of your Virtual Machines. Many more options and tools dedicated to migration (from legacy hypervisor to KVM), backup and best practices will be shared during the session.
