You may have heard of the
Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance, an Oracle Engineered system for running virtual machines using Oracle VM. I've been working a lot with this product over the past several months, so I'm overdue to blog about it. It's really a powerful platform with built-in compute, network, and storage resources - something often referred to as "converged infrastructure".
This post is one of a series of "best practices" notes for Oracle VM Server for
SPARC (formerly called Logical Domains). This is an update to a previous entry on the same topic.
Top Ten Tuning Tips - Updated
Oracle VM Server for SPARC is a high performance virtualization technology for SPARC
servers. It provides native CPU performance without the virtualization overhead typical
