First Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition Launched by Oracle

By Linda Dobel June 27, 2011

Managing web and cloud applications no longer needs to be excessively costly. Oracle revealed today that it has introduced Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition which it says will help users more effectively deploy and manage web and cloud applications at a reduced cost. 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, it will reportedly help eliminate manual configuration efforts and risks.

"Oracle is committed to helping MySQL users more efficiently deploy and manage high-performance web and cloud-based applications at a lower cost," said Tomas Ulin, vice president MySQL Engineering, at Oracle, in a statement. "With the introduction of the first Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition, customers can benefit from a fully integrated solution that is backed by Oracle's world-class support, enabling faster deployments, increased reliability and higher uptime for MySQL applications in virtualized environments."

Oracle VM Templates are designed to simplify to a large extent, installation, configuration and ongoing maintenance operations. Using these templates with MySQL Enterprise Edition should help users achieve faster deployment as well as increased reliability, according to Oracle. Reliability is ensured it says, because the pre-installed and pre-configured software stack “has already undergone extensive integration and quality testing and is certified for production use.”

In addition, MySQL's replication capabilities coupled with Oracle VM's built-in high availability features will help reduce planned as well as unplanned downtime, the company said.

Oracle noted that the new Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition provides users with access to the MySQL suite of management tools that include: MySQL Enterprise Monitor, MySQL Query Analyzer, MySQL Workbench and MySQL Enterprise Backup.

Oracle said the Oracle VM Template for MySQL Enterprise Edition further demonstrates its “investment in MySQL and allows users to benefit from a single point of contact for 24/7 technical support for all pre-configured components.”
