    What's New

    Where to Start

    Running on x86 servers, Oracle VM includes Oracle VM Manager and Oracle VM Server for x86.

    • Oracle VM Manager controls the virtualization environment, creating and monitoring Oracle VM servers and the virtual machines. Oracle VM Manager 3 is an Oracle Fusion Middleware application, based on the Oracle Weblogic Server application server and Oracle Database. Beginning with release 3.2, Oracle VM Manager bundles MySQL Database Enterprise Edition as the management repository.
    • Oracle VM Server for x86 installs directly on server hardware with x86 Intel or AMD processors and does not require a host operating system. An Oracle VM Server is comprised of a hypervisor and privileged domain (Dom0) that allows multiple domains or virtual machines (i.e. Linux, Solaris, Windows, etc.) to run on one physical machine. The Dom0 runs a process called Oracle VM Agent. The Oracle VM Agent receives and processes management requests, provides event notifications and configuration data to the Oracle VM Manager. Oracle VM Server 3 requires 64-bit x86 hardware, but can support either 64-bit or 32-bit guest virtual machines.
