Do you want the most practical way to facilitate virtualized MySQL instances? Try the Oracle VM Template

Oracle VM Template, MySQL Enterprise Edition and Oracle Linux work together to give you better operational agility and longer uptimes.

Today’s software vendors and companies usually make their software and services available to their customers on the Web.  And because of the increasing demand for Web-based services and on-demand software, providers will have to address the concerns that your rapidly changing and expanding data center is facing.  That includes higher operating costs, more real estate and resource utilization that are less than optimum.  And a lot of companies are turning to virtualization and cloud computing in order to solve these problems.

No other way to go around it.  If you want your data center to be always available and very efficient, then you will need to get into virtualization.  Virtualization gives you better performing data centers while also giving you the foundation that you need to get into the cloud.  And the best way to get your virtualized MySQL instances provisioned is to use MySQL Enterprise Edition together with Oracle VM Template and Oracle Linux.

How Oracle VM Template helps

Oracle VM Template helps you deploy your virtualized instances without having to manually configure everything.  You can just use the pre-installed and pre-configured MySQL 5.5 Enterprise Edition image that runs on Oracle Linux and Oracle VM.  It is all ready for production use.  The MySQL images have been extensively tested for quality and integration.

This way, you can easily, quickly and reliably provision your MySQL instances.  Apart from rapid provisioning, you can also get high availability from Oracle VM.  Oracle VM gives you a way to meet even the strictest service level agreements.  It does this by being able to automatically restart failed instances using the available servers located in the server pool after outages on the physical server.  Also, Oracle VM is able to run MySQL instances to different hosts if you need to do so during maintenance.

What’s more, if you use Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition, you will be able to use a suite of MySQL tools that help you manage things.  These tools include MySQL Enterprise Backup, MySQL Enterprise Monitor & Query Analyzer, and MySQL Workbench, among others.

So all in all, if you build MySQL database services with Oracle VM Template, you can enjoy:

  1. Speedier deployments because you’ll have reduced installation times and you do not need to configure everything manually.  This is true for initial deployments and even during scale out.
  2. Better reliability because you are using, deploying and installing a software stack that has already been extensively tested and certified for use in production environments.
  3. Lesser downtimes by helping you reduce outages from both unplanned and planned maintenance.

In short, Oracle VM Template, MySQL Enterprise Edition and Oracle Linux work together to give you better operational agility and longer uptimes, while also making applications easier to manage, support and deploy.  All that while making sure that everything stays cost effective.
