Nice article on the oracle website about the internals of OVM by Gregory King and Suzanne Zorn.
I really like these kind of articles.

We just introduced a new yum repository/channel on http://public-yum.oracle.com called the playground channel. What we started doing is the following:
When a new stable mainline kernel is released by Linus or GregKH, we internally build RPMs to test it and do some QA work around it to keep track of what's going on with the latest development kernels. It helps us understand how performance moves up or down and if there are issues, we try to help look into them and of course send that stuff back upstream.
So, Day 1 of the Virtualization SIG on www.ioug.org is over. All by all an interesting day.
The schedule was :
Session 1 – Oracle on Oracle VM – Expert Panel
Session 2 – Maximizing your Virtualized Environment with Oracle VM
Session 3 – The RAC OVM Templates and the new DeployCluster tool on OVM3
Session 4 – The Latest on Oracle VM
Session 5 – Simplifying Application Deployment in Cloud Using Virtual Assemblies and EM 12c
I’m giving a presentation on this topic on thursday 25 Oct for OracleOpenXperience. Here are the slides for my presentation. Hope you find it interesting.

How it works
ovmd is a listening process on your vm that allows messages to be send from and to the manager.
