A Dive into Oracle Linux Environment and How to Successfully Migrate from OVM to OLVM

Oracle Virtualization Manager (OVM) and Oracle Linux Virtual Manager (OLVM)

Oracle Linux Virtual Environment (OLVM) is a virtualization platform offered by Oracle. OLVM provides the ability to create and manage virtualized environments on Oracle Linux servers.  It’s designed to help organizations consolidate workloads, increase resource utilization, and improve infrastructure efficiency.

Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager is a powerful virtualization management platform that can help you improve the performance, scalability, and security of your virtualized environment. OLVM also provides a centralized management interface for virtual machines, storage, and networks.

OLVM is particularly used by businesses and enterprises that are invested in Oracle technologies and solutions.  Often utilized by organizations seeking to create virtualized environments running applications and workloads in a more efficient and manageable manner.  OLVM can help businesses achieve better resource utilization, isolation of workloads, and overall infrastructure flexibility.

While it’s most associated with Oracle Linux, it can also support other operating systems as guest virtual machines.

Oracle provides a range of products that can be run under Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager, including various Oracle software and third-party applications. Some examples of Oracle products that could be run under OLVM include:

  • Oracle Database OLVM can be used to create virtual machines that host Oracle Database instances.
  • Oracle Middleware Middleware products like Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle SOA Suite, and Oracle Fusion Middleware components could be run within virtual machines managed by OLVM.
  • Oracle Applications Enterprise applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle JD Edwards, and Oracle PeopleSoft can also be virtualized and managed using OLVM.
  • Custom Applications Organizations can also deploy their custom applications on virtual machines within OLVM.
  • Testing and Development OLVM can be used to create isolated testing and development environments for various Oracle software.
  • Business Intelligence Solutions Oracle Business Intelligence solutions, such as Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE), can be set up in virtual machines under OLVM.

OVM and OLVM are mostly used with other Oracle products and technologies.  Often used in Oracle software applications, databases, and middleware.

Specific compatibility and support for running certain Oracle products under OLVM could vary based on product versions, OLVM versions, and hardware configurations. It’s always best to consult Oracle’s official documentation and support resources for the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding the compatibility of Oracle products with Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager.

Upgrade from Oracle Virtual Manager (OVM) to Oracle Linux Virtaul Manager (OLVM)

It is fascinating to look back over the last decade or so to see how cellular networks have evolved. As smartphones like the iPhone and Android became the norm as opposed to a luxury consumer technology good, demand for fast and stable wireless Internet connections grew exponentially. Now we expect to be able to watch a YouTube video on demand with minimal buffering time no matter where we are. When cellular carriers moved to 4G networks several years ago, this became the standard.

Role of 5G In Future

But the rise of 5G networks create the potential for new ways of working as well as benefits to the daily lives of many people that they probably haven’t considered yet. We often think about devices bringing us faster and more powerful technology, but the rise of 5G really represents a new option of services that could be available to us regardless of our devices. I’d like to look at a few ways that 5G networks will change the way we work and live with technology over the next several years.

It would be an understatement to say that 2020 was a year of transformation. Many trends that were already well underway were accelerated by the pandemic and the shift to Work From Home. Sadly, cybercriminals follow the opportunities and look for the low hanging fruit when it comes to finding their next victims, and were savvy enough to quickly shift their attacks on personal vulnerabilities to this new Work From Home paradigm.






Many businesses, especially smaller ones, have a blind spot when it comes to security and risk management, especially when it comes to internal policies. While there are ample technology solutions available to deal with the threat landscape to protect data and system uptime, there is no technology solution that will completely address the risks posed by irresponsible end-user behaviour. There are also limits on what technology investments most organizations can make, so it’s important to get the best return on investment on your risk management tools and efforts. Strong policies that are well understood by staff are often the least expensive and most effective ways to avoid costly IT challenges

Flexible Policies

Data Compliance standards also demand internal policies as well as the technical controls, so even if you think the policies aren’t worthwhile, it’s possible that you still need to create them. In this blog, I outline the IT policies that every organization needs in 2020. Hopefully, you have some of these in place already, but if not, I encourage you to use this blog as a jumping off point. Keep in mind as you read this that some organizations may call these policies different things, but the important part is that the goals of these polices are intact.
