4.0 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

Oracle is very strict when it comes to using their software on virtualization software. If you want to license only part of your VM setup, the only option available is to use Oracle VM. But setting up and managing an Oracle VM farm is no sinecure. Fortunately using our ovm_config Puppet module, the process of setting up, adding and removing VM's and another setup, has become very easy.

This module allows you to manage averything there is to manage in an Oracle VM setup. For example you can manage: VM pools, repositories, VM's and Virtual disks. Using this module you can create a puppet description of your Oracle VM setup and manage it like a pro.


This is a commercially licensed module. But you can use the module on VirtualBox based development systems for FREE. When used on real systems a license is required.

You can license our modules in multiple ways. Our basic licensing model requires a subscription per node. But contact us for details.

Check the License for details.
