This article by Daniel Langenhan, author of Instant VMware vCloud Starter [Instant] explains how we can create our first VM in vCloud using VMware vCloud Director.

To do that, we have to assign resources (CPU memory and disk) to vCD for consumption. In step 1 we will learn about all the different types of resources, and in steps 2 to 5, we will build them. Step 6 finally builds a vApp. Last but not least, I will give you some ideas about what to explore next.Read Creating your first VM using vCloud technology in full

Multiple hostnames can be mapped to the same CS VIP using the server name indication feature from NetScaler 9.2 onwards.

This article by Porus Homi Havewala (OCM), author of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c: Managing Data Center Chaos , demonstrates how Cloud Control 12c allows automated patching of Oracle databases in the data center, thus making it possible to easily apply critical patch updates or patch set updates on a quarterly basis. The Patching Designer selects from a list of recommended patches, creates a patch plan template, and publishes it to the Patching Operator, who then creates a patch plan to apply the patch to target databases. After the initial selection, the download, validation and deployment of the patch (single or multiple) is fully automated, thus enabling mass deployment of patches to multiple database homes at prescheduled times. The new feature of out-of-place patching is explained in this article, as is the patch plan templates.Read Ease the Chaos with Automated Patching in full
