Oracle VM Server

It's simple, clean and easy to deploy. The updates are only making the product much better. Kudos to Oracle Dev team! It has great flexibility but could use some work in the snapshot capabilities (but hey, remember - it's free). The management console is intuitive and does a good job at managing resources, keeping an eye on your templates and so on.

Proxmox VE

Versatility and flexibility is Proxmox VEs' greatest strong points. Allowing infinite design capability, you can build infrastructures of various work loads, purposes, and goals and not be restricted by how you do it, or what differences may need to exist between the various infrastructure points. Proxmox VE allows you to design how you need to every time.

Cons

Proxmox VE

  • Several options are available for storage. CephFS, the clustered built-in network storage, needs to be installed via the console or ssh. Other options like iSCSI do not support host migration.

Proxmox VE provides the most capable, yet stable virtualization platform in the market today. Licensing options are also competitive and cost-effective for support, and support is extremely fast and knowledgable of getting issues resolved as quickly and soundly as possible.

Out of every product I have used for this, Proxmox VE is the most concise, clear, and functional I have ever seen. I continue to use Proxmox VE even after occasionally comparing alternatives available because of it's usability, design concept, and great support of features. It's very unlikely I will find a product that can even compete with Proxmox VE in every angle of what Proxmox VE provides.

Proxmox VE's ha-cluster functionality is very much improved, though does have a not-very-often occurrence of failure. In a 2-node cluster of Proxmox VE, HA can fail causing an instance that is supposed to migrate between the two nodes stop and fail until manually recovered through the command-line tools provided. Other than this, the HA clustering capability of Proxmox VE has proven to be reliable in 3 or more clustered environments with much less chance of these failures to occur.

Proxmox VE's interfacing is always fast to load, both the Web interface and the command-line tool interfaces. Reporting is practically real time almost all the time, and you can see everything in mere seconds, easily able to identify if something is wrong or it everything is in tip-top shape as always desired

Alternatives Considered

Oracle VM Server

Both are better than Oracle VM, but Oracle application licenses on them were too high.

Proxmox VE

The Proxmox Cluster solution only requires a browser to control and manage all of your server resources. The other solutions require you to run a specific Operating System to manage them, getting awkward since the underlying technology runs on another OS. The native integration with Ceph is big move on this wonderful Storage Technology

Proxmox VE provides everything you need to quickly add new storage mediums, network and local, as well as networking interfaces, such as using Linux standard bridges and now Open-vSwitch bridges which can be even more scalable than before. Proxmox VE 4.0 dropped support for OpenVZ in favor of the more well supported and native LXC and made an upgrade path to it very simple.
