Oracle VM VirtualBox 3.1.8 released! Introducing Oracle VM Server for SPARC

As you are watching Oracle’s Virtualization Strategy Webcast and exploring the great virtualization offerings of Oracle VM product line, I’d like to introduce Oracle VM Server for SPARC —  highly efficient, enterprise-class virtualization solution for Sun SPARC Enterprise Systems with Chip Multithreading (CMT) technology.

Oracle VM Server for SPARC, previously called Sun Logical Domains, leverages the built-in SPARC hypervisor to subdivide supported platforms’ resources (CPUs, memory, network, and storage) by creating partitions called logical (or virtual) domains. Each logical domain can run an independent operating system. Oracle VM Server for SPARC provides the flexibility to deploy multiple Oracle Solaris operating systems simultaneously on a single platform. Oracle VM Server also allows you to create up to 128 virtual servers on one system to take advantage of the massive thread scale offered by the CMT architecture
