Oracle has released a new press release which is stating a new Oracle VM template. They now have created a Oracle VM template which is based on Oracle Linux and will be running a Oracle MySql Enterprise version. This will provide the MySQL community in a even more relaxed position now they can simply provision complete MySQL installations on a Oracle VM platform. In my opinion this is a great move from Oracle to get (A) MySQL more in the picture within the Oracle community itself and (B) provide a even wider adoption of Oracle VM and Oracle Linux now they are expanding it to the MySQL groups within the Oracle community.The press release can be found at the Oracle site and you can read a part of it below:News Facts
