Configuring Guest Resources

One of the major features of Oracle VM that distinguishes it from other virtualization products is the use of templates. Templates are used for creating “golden images” of a complete software stack. The Oracle VM templates are considered part of the guest resources. Oracle VM guest resources include the virtual appliances (formerly assemblies), ISOs, templates, virtual disks, and configuration files (vm.cfg files). Server resources include the use of the Oracle VM utilities to manage CPU partitioning, report on VM storage details, and gather Oracle VM Server (OVS) performance data for reporting to a VM.
