Deploying Oracle WebLogic applications on VMware technology drives tangible benefits through the complete software lifecycle from development to high availability. By expediting and simplifying the application development and testing processes customers experience faster time to production while maintaining high quality throughout these processes.
Customers who run their WebLogic applications on VMware's virtualization technology have been able to reduce costs and deployment time while providing increased operational efficiencies and accelerated time to market, driving lower TCO and increased ROI.
Application Development with VMware vCenter Lab Manager and Oracle WebLogic Server
In a non-virtualized Oracle application development environment, procuring dedicated hardware, installing operating systems, and installing and configuring applications can be a painstaking and costly exercise. VMware vCenter Lab Manager addresses the challenge by automating the setup and teardown of complex, multi-machine software configurations on a centralized pool of servers shared by the application development and QA teams. These operations are performed in a self service manner by developers and QA engineers and literally take seconds, relieving the time-consuming provisioning burden often shouldered by IT.
Application Development with VMware vCenter Lab Manager and BEA WebLogic Server
Oracle WebLogic Operations Control allows centralized control over Java apps, including dynamic activation and scale-out to meet mission-critical business needs. This video covers key benefits, as well as how to use the product.
Intelligent Automation with VMware and Oracle
Oracle WebLogic Liquid Operations Control (WLOC) can help customers to take advantage of VMware virtualization to implement dynamic application architectures. WLOC is designed to address the challenges involved in application virtualization by providing policy-based monitoring of application service level agreements (SLAs) and automating dynamic deployment and provisioning of application resources.
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Virtualization
Industry discussion on Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and virtualization positions them as separate, though related, topics today. Because of the wealth of public discussion on each technology, IT manager may wonder whether they are in any sense connected to each other. In fact, the technologies that come with virtualization can be seen as key enablers for the flexibility promised by SOA.
Virtualization is a Key Enabler for SOA
This demo showcases the use of VMware Infrastructure software in SOA deployments. Scenarios include: mapping an SOA deployment to a virtualized environment, a virtualized data center, provisioning a WebLogic Server instance to a WebLogic Server domain, provisioning a WebLogic Server instance to a WebLogic Server cluster, planned downtime for hardware maintenance and unplanned downtime in case of hardware failure
