During this course, You will be shown how to maximize workload efficiency by effectively administering the platform resources and taking advantage of the massive CPU core and thread scale offered by Oracle SPARC servers and
examines various aspects of planning for implementing server virtualization in an enterprise environment. Throughout the course, students practice server virtualization by performing a series of guided hands-on labs that walk the student through the critical tasks associated with server and network virtualization activities.
Oracle VM Server for SPARC provides efficient, enterprise class virtualization for the Oracle SPARC server platform running Oracle Solaris operating system.
Using the Oracle SPARC hypervisor to create hardware partitioned logical domains, you are able to efficiently build and manage up to 128 hardware independent virtual environments on a single server. By learning to create the various types of logical domains, implementing native and virtualized access to I/O hardware for domains running business critical applications is made easy.
- Assign dedicated and shared resources to domains
- Plan infrastructure consolidation using zones
- Increase availability and flexibility for virtual environments with live migration
- Configure non-global zones including: Oracle Solaris native zones, Oracle Solaris 10 zones, and kernel zones, Administer zones
- Create root and I/O domains to increase performance for business critical applications
- Migrate global and non-global zones
- Manage zone resources including: CPUs, memory, networks, and storage
- Optimize zones form best workload performance
- Administer server resources for logical domains running business applications
- Troubleshoot zone problems
- Build scalable logical domain based virtual environments
