Oracle Ops Center 11g Release 1 Update 3
Datacenters have long struggled with the lifecycle management of servers on a massive scale. Sun Microsystems addressed this concern with their N1 product line, which was later re-branded xVM with additional consolidation of hypervisor. With the acquisition of Sun by Oracle, hypervisors were broken out and Ops Center has been placed under the umbrella of Oracle Enterprise Manager.
