From Oracle´s Virtualization Blog
Friday Spotlight: Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder (OVAB) 12.1.2
Demo Appliance Available for Testing!

By Chris Kawalek on Feb 07, 2014

Happy Friday! Our Friday Spotlight this week is about a new virtual appliance for Oracle VM:

The Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder team has been busy! You can now take a self-guided tour to see the power of Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder.
For some background, let’s quickly revisit how Oracle VM enables rapid application deployment.

Oracle VM Templates allow you to easily and quickly deploy pre-configured Oracle Database and applications. Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder accelerates and simplifies provisioning of complete multi-tier application topologies by packaging them as standard Open Virtualization Format (OVF) Assemblies for deployment into Oracle VM environments. It is capable of capturing application topologies comprised of Oracle and non-Oracle products. With a single keystroke, applications are fully deployed using application and user defined metadata. Two example use cases are replicating an entire application topology from one datacenter to another or deployment of entire stack of application into Oracle VM as a foundation for your private cloud environment.

The OVAB 12.1.2.0.0 Demo Appliance is a self contained Oracle VM VirtualBox appliance which includes both OVAB 12.1.2.0.0 Studio and Deployer and a reference application topology that you can introspect to create Appliances and then compose them into an Assembly.

Please note: this appliance is not meant for production use.

The OVAB team has done a great job in packaging this appliance. Download the Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder 12.1.2.0.0 Demo Appliance and take your self-guided tour today!
