Virtualization is the process of abstracting computing resources such that multiple operating system and application images can share a single physical server, bringing significant cost-of-ownership and manageability benefits. Through its Oracle VM product, Oracle offers scalable, low-cost server virtualization for heterogeneous applications. In addition, Oracle VM Templates provide an innovative approach to deploying a fully configured software stack by offering pre-installed and pre-configured software images. Use of Oracle VM Templates eliminates the installation and configuration costs, and reduces ongoing maintenance costs, helping organizations achieve faster time to market and lower cost of operations.

Topics covered in this Specialization include: Server Pools, Server Roles, Virtualization management using Enterprise Manager, Troubleshooting and Diagnostics, and Best Practices for Virtualization and RAC.

Oracle partners who achieve this Specialization are differentiated in the marketplace through proven expertise in Oracle VM 2.
