In what capacity?
Over all integration in terms of VM creation like we integrate with VCenter and maintaing the Servers and application deployment etc etc..
Ovm uses either xen or kvm afaik so it should be technically possible as we support both of those technologies. Typically platform support is based on customer demand – so if this is becoming more popular our product managers would need to evaluate. I saw you created an idea on this already.
hmm u are right Bill.. in most of the cases the Customers have Exalogic
and due this limitation they have a seperate team to manage this and
customers ask for BMC support for this and due to lack of support it is
having a short fall.. Now changes are happening drastically towards
exalogic and would be happy if it supports OVM.
It is not possible to use BSA OOTB to integrate with OVM. I have tested this myself.
Though the fundamentals of OVM are based on XenServer, Oracle have made sufficient changes to it for the BSA XenServer CO not to function.
Additionally with the way that Oracle are positioning OVCA, it is almost becoming a blackbox environment with customization only available through Oracle themselves.
However it is very possible to interface directly with OVM using the REST API to initiate VM provisioning and configuration. Doing this from BSA will require an NSH script for sure.
The best method would be to use Atrium Orchestrator to perform the provisioning and then use that workflow to add the server to BSA.
