It is no secret that virtualization has been growing over the years.  Gartner estimated that there were close to 11 million servers around the world employing some kind of virtualization in the middle of 2011.

A part of this growth is due to the fact that virtualization proves to be very effective in helping enterprises optimize the use of their assets, cut down management and implementation time, simplify things, and reduce costs in relation to their operations software or infrastructure.

Oracle VM 3, with its application-driven virtualization, is changing the way businesses are deploying their applications.  Be it third-party applications, customized applications, middleware or databases.

What is application-driven virtualization?

Traditionally, virtualization was involved only in optimizing resources, using it to consolidate systems, and also in reducing the need to buy new hardware and software, thereby cutting down on capital expenditure.  Application-driven virtualization is a way to provide complete application stacks, making it easier to install and maintain applications that are critical to the business.  This provisioning is done rapidly and automatically.  Application-driven virtualization could also include the process of managing the virtual machines, along with the applications running within these machines.

Oracle VM 3 is the latest server virtualization software from Oracle.  In a nutshell, Oracle VM 3 helps you improve application deployment, use and management.  In the company’s tests done in real world datacenters, the software showed that it was able to reduce support and operation costs, and increase IT agility and efficiency at the same time.
