Oracle Announces Oracle(R) VM Template Builder Enabling Faster Application Deployment for ISVs and End-Users

Enhances Oracle Enterprise Linux JeOS

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/12/09 -- Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL)

News Facts

  • Today, Oracle announced Oracle® VM Template Builder, an open source, graphical utility that makes it easy to use Oracle Enterprise Linux "Just enough OS" (JeOS)-based scripts for developing pre-packaged virtual machines for Oracle VM.
  • Now, end-users and ISVs have the option to develop their Oracle VM Templates by using these JeOS-based scripts directly or via the graphical Oracle VM Template Builder.
  • Oracle Enterprise Linux JeOS is a version of the same Oracle Enterprise Linux that is backed by 24x7, global enterprise-class support. It has been tailored specifically to facilitate the creation of Oracle VM Templates for production enterprise use, with reduced disk space requirements, industry leading reliability and protection against security vulnerabilities.
  • Oracle VM Templates are virtual machines containing pre-installed and pre-configured enterprise software that can be used by ISVs or end-users to develop, package and distribute their applications for faster deployment.
  • Oracle VM Templates speed and simplify application deployments and help reduce the risk of user errors in production, development, or test environments.
  • Only Oracle offers this combination of enterprise class operating system and virtualization software for free download and free distribution, making Oracle VM Templates an ideal mechanism for simplifying software distribution, reducing end-user costs and for profitable ISV software distribution of complete solutions.
  • The graphical Oracle VM Template Builder utility is based on the core technology of Oracle's small footprint Oracle Enterprise Linux JeOS operating system image that, along with the accompanying powerful script, is designed specifically for Oracle VM Template creation and build-process integration.
  • Oracle VM supports both Oracle and non-Oracle applications and offers customers scalable, low-cost server virtualization backed by Oracle's world-class support. Oracle VM Templates are available today for Oracle's Siebel CRM, Oracle Database, Oracle Enterprise Manager, Oracle Fusion Middleware, and more. See a complete list of templates at: http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/vm/templates/index.html.

Lowering Development and Deployment Costs with Oracle VM Templates

  • Oracle VM Templates eliminate the need for users to separately install and configure an operating system or applications, allowing reduced installation and configuration costs, while helping organizations benefit from server consolidation, achieve energy savings, speed time to market and lower total cost of operations.
  • Oracle VM Template Builder uses "JeOS" to facilitate building an operating system instance with only the absolute minimum packages needed for an Oracle VM Template, helping to reduce the disk footprint by up to 2GB or more per guest virtual machine and to improve security and reliability.
  • Oracle VM Template Builder is distributed as software packages via the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN) and Oracle Technology Network.

Supporting Quote

  • "As more complex enterprise software is virtualized, users and ISVs are seeking ways to make deployments easier, faster and more repeatable, while maintaining IT processes and the ability to customize their environment," said Wim Coekaerts, vice president, Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle. "Oracle VM Template Builder extends the benefits of Oracle VM by enabling customers to more rapidly configure and deploy applications while reducing costs through the use of server virtualization. This is a testament to Oracle's commitment to providing customers with tools that allow a fast, easy, and low-risk way to deploy enterprise software and solutions."
