Presentation Title: Automate Oracle VM Server - Leverage the OVM-REST Interface
Speaker: Mr Robert Marz
Company: its-people
Presentation abstract: Oracle VM Server is a powerful virtualization environment.

All administration tasks can be done via the web interface of the OVM Manager.

Unfortunately, the web interface is not suitable for automatisation and the CLI does not help much either.

The REST interface of OVM Manager offers full flexibility and responses formatted in XML or JSON.

However, the documentation is very well hidden and not all commands are sorted intuitively.

This presentation introduces to the REST interface and shows in comprehensive live demonstrations, how it can be utilized using the browser.

Next, it demonstrates how automation and simple reporting can be implemented with JavaScript and Node.js.

All examples shown are available for download.

The presentation provides detailed live demos.
