Virtualisation started as a means of server consolidation, but IT needs are evolving as data centres are becoming service providers. An isolated hypervisor cannot provide the speed and time to market required to deploy a complete application stack. To realise the full benefits of virtualisation, organisations must look beyond simple consolidation and choose application-driven virtualisation solutions that are integrated with the applications and infrastructure.
Only Oracle offers the industry's most complete and integrated virtualisation, from desktop to the data centre. Going far beyond simple consolidation, Oracle enables you to virtualise and manage your full hardware and software stack.
Designed for efficiency and optimised for performance, Oracle's server virtualisation products support x86 and SPARC architectures and a variety of workloads such as Linux, Windows and Oracle Solaris. In addition to solutions that are hypervisor-based, Oracle also offers virtualisation built in to hardware and Oracle operating systems to deliver the most complete and optimised solution for your entire computing environment.
With users demanding access to applications and services 24/7, IT needs are evolving. Data centre solutions need to support these stringent service levels while keeping the costs low. The integration of Oracle VM with Oracle’s leading enterprise software and hardware solutions offers significant advantages to data centres that support the most demanding customers.
Oracle desktop virtualisation provides secure, anywhere access to Oracle Applications and other enterprise software and enables virtualised operating systems on standard client devices.
