The Oracle Linux KVM Image for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure simplifies the deployment of virtual machines using Oracle Cloud resources by integrating with block storage and virtual network interfaces (VNIC) services through the use of tooling and automation.
In this release (version 1.4) several new features have been added:
Currently, the BM.Standard1.36 and BM.Standard2.52 shapes are supported and users must have an available instance to use with the image. Users should be familiar with managing virtual guests using libvirt, specifically virsh and virt-install.
Detailed instructions on how to deploy the KVM image and to use the VM configuration tools can be found in the Getting Started: Oracle Linux KVM Image for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure guide.
