Certifying the Virtual Platform

Virtual platform refers to the virtual machine instance created by a hypervisor software. This feature of Oracle HCTS 5.8 enables the hypervisor software provider companies to certify virtual platforms for the Oracle Solaris OS on x86 systems. Oracle Solaris OS that is running as a guest on the virtual platform implementation can be tested by using the Oracle HCTS application. Hence the virtual platform can be certified for Oracle Solaris OS compatibility.

Note - In the current release, the virtual platform certification feature of Oracle HCTS is the evaluation version. You can only test this feature and provide us the feedback. The certified virtual platforms are not included in the HCL.
