Accelerate and Simplify Deployment of PowerBroker Privilege Management Solutions with Oracle VM Templates

Posted May 1, 2014    Chris Burd

On April 17th, Oracle and BeyondTrust experts Doan Nguyen and Paul Harper shared how leveraging Oracle VM Templates can automate and simplify the deployment of the PowerBroker for UNIX & Linux privilege management solution across your IT environment.

See below for an embedded, on-demand recording of the webcast.

Oracle and BeyondTrust Team Up

The partnership between Oracle VM Template and BeyondTrust is extending into its fifth year. BeyondTrust’s PowerBroker for UNIX & Linux supports Oracle Linux and Oracle VM, and can be integrated with Oracle’s Enterprise Manager. The many variations of this partnership’s product integration allow customers to standardize the deployment of PowerBroker software, eliminate installation and configuration costs, and reduce ongoing maintenance and support costs.

Oracle VM Application-Driven Architecture

This webcast provides insight into Oracle VM’s application-driven architecture, which provides rapid application deployment for both Oracle and non-Oracle workloads. Hardware-independent application workloads allow customers to more easily manage application lifecycles and update these systems at scale. Using Oracle VM Templates, entire application stacks can be pre-installed and pre-configured for rapid deployment.

This “top-down” approach focuses on applications to provide uncompromised virtualization capabilities.

Standardize for Simplicity (and Savings)

Taking applications from development to production can be a time-consuming and expensive process. It typically takes several weeks – or even months – to develop and deploy enterprise-level applications. Leveraging Oracle VM helps your IT department set up an environment for developing, testing, deploying, and updating / upgrading PowerBroker for UNIX & Linux quickly and securely at an enterprise-level. Using Oracle VM templates with PowerBroker can cut down your development process to one to three weeks by allowing your team to jump right into customized development.

Oracle VM Templates and PowerBroker Speed Up Deployment

Oracle’s VM templates speed up the automated and manual configuration processes but leave plenty of legwork for application teams. Getting this time back helps your team achieve the benefits of virtualization quickly and more cost-effectively, leaving your company with enterprise-level applications that are easier, faster, and more reliable than ever before.
