Oracle has announced the first Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition. The new Oracle VM Template for MySQL helps eliminate manual configuration efforts and risks by providing a pre-installed, pre-configured and certified software stack that includes Oracle VM Server for x86, Oracle Linux with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel and MySQL Enterprise Edition.
By pre-integrating the open source database with Oracle Linux and Oracle Virtualization technologies, enterprise users and ISVs can quickly and easily deploy and manage a virtualized MySQL database server for Web and cloud-based applications. It further demonstrates Oracle’s investment in MySQL and allows users to benefit from a single point of contact for 24/7 technical support for all pre-configured components.
Oracle VM Templates simplify installation, configuration and ongoing maintenance operations, allowing organizations to achieve faster time to market and to reduce costs. Using the Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition to deliver applications allows users to benefit from:
- Faster deployments: Users can drastically reduce installation and configuration cycles both for initial deployments and to provision replicated scale-out environments.
- Increased reliability: Using a pre-installed and pre-configured software stack, that has already undergone extensive integration and quality testing and is certified for production use, helps ensure a reliable and trusted environment.
- Higher uptime: With MySQL’s replication capabilities plus Oracle VM’s built-in high availability features both planned and unplanned downtime can be reduced.
The new Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition also provides users with access to the comprehensive suite of MySQL management tools including MySQL Enterprise Monitor, MySQL Query Analyzer, MySQL Workbench, and MySQL Enterprise Backup.
