Oracle VM Storage Connect Partner Program

Third-party Plug-ins for Oracle VM

When a storage vendor enables the Oracle VM Storage Connect plug-in, their customers will be able to provision that vendor’s storage through the Oracle VM Manager. This will enable simpler management of virtual infrastructure, as well as faster provisioning of solutions in a cloud environment.
