Oracle acquires Virtual Iron Software, Inc.

Customers are expected to benefit from rapid application deployment, streamlined virtualization server configuration and improved visibility and control across Oracle’s enterprise software stack. In addition, we anticipate that the combination of Virtual Iron technology with Oracle Enterprise Manager will enable customers to be more agile in meeting application service levels for virtual environments.
