VMware this week unveiled VMware vFabric Data Director 2.0 with support for virtualization of Oracle databases. The company says vFabric Data Director 2.0 is designed to simplify and automate database lifecycle management, allowing organizations to deliver “database-as-a-service.”

VMware vFabric Data Director leverages virtualization at the database tier to reduce database complexity and cost, via policy-based automation and a self-service management model, Chen said.
