One of the new features that Oracle introduced in OVM 3.0, was the Oracle VM Storage Connect. In a nutshell, the objective of the Storage Connect is to allow users to use advanced storage features directly within the Oracle VM Manager; giving users the ability to use the OVM Manager 3.0 as a central station for managing their OVM servers, virtual machines, and storage. The one catch to the Storage Connect is it requires your storage vendor to have written code to enable these features within OVM Manager. If you’d like to check out an overview of the Oracle VM Storage Connect, check out this whitepaper by Oracle: http://www.oracle.com/us/technologies/virtualization/ovm3-storage-connect-459309.pdf
If you are lucky to have a vendor that does have a storage plugin for the Oracle VM 3.0 Manager, what are your thoughts on it?
