A Concise, Up-to-Date Guide to Oracle Virtualization Technologies, Including Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle VM Server for SPARC, Physical Domains, and Oracle VM Virtual Box
Oracle® Solaris 11 System Virtualization Essentials, Second Edition, has been fully updated for Oracle 11 and is a complete, practical, and up-to-date guide to selecting, implementing, and applying today’s Oracle virtualization technologies to real-world business problems.
Four Oracle experts thoroughly cover current Oracle Solaris virtualization options. They help you understand key use cases, including consolidation, asynchronous workloads, software development, testing/staging, workload mobility, legacy OS support, provisioning, scalability, fine-grained OS changes, and security. They also compare and address each leading approach to virtualization: OS virtualization, hypervisor-based virtual machines, and hardware partitioning.
The authors illuminate the use of virtualization with many Oracle software applications and engineered systems, including SuperCluster, Secure Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure, Exalytics, Oracle Database, and security hardening scenarios.
Bringing together case study examples and
in-the-trenches experience, this guide explains how to
Leverage Oracle Solaris Zones to improve security, deployment, resource usage, and management
Use Logical Domains to deploy different versions of Oracle Solaris on SPARC systems
Maximize workload isolation on SPARC systems with Physical Domains
Use Oracle Solaris Zones to optimize workload efficiency and scalability
Improve data center flexibility with live migration
Develop and test software in heterogeneous environments with Oracle VM Virtual Box
Mix virtualization technologies to maximize workload density
Migrate Solaris 10 workloads to new hardware via Solaris
