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.
The module contains the following types:
