Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition
As organizations increasingly deliver Web-based services, and as independent software vendors offer more SaaS and on-demand versions of their software, the challenges of a rapidly expanding data center grow: increased operating costs, inefficient resource utilization, and an appetite for real estate. Many are turning to virtualization technologies to provide solutions to these challenges, and enable a cloud infrastructure. The Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition has been engineered to address these challenges, helping users rapidly and safely deploy and manage Web and cloud-based MySQL applications.
