We were using Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure much more heavily last year, but we are now in the process of phasing it out to fully integrate VMware Horizon to our workflow. Our core software engineering team is using Oracle VDI to manage and access multiple virtualized desktop environments that are running on the same server rack.
  • Ease of Manageability. Accessing and managing multiple virtualized desktop environments is pretty straightforward.
  • Great Options for Keeping Track of Logins. Detailed reports of who has been logging into which environment are easy to configure.
  • File Systems Can Be Shared. You can set multiple desktop environments to be able to share data on the same file system.
  • Viewing reporting data and similar analytics in real-time is slow and laggy.
  • Occasional crash and regular freezing of the system. On a daily basis, we face freezing problems when accessing desktop environments, sometimes resulting in a complete crash of the software.
  • Cannot Maintain a Stable Connection for Extensive Periods of Time. Accessing desktop environments for short term periods works flawlessly most of the time, but when working on one for more than about 3-4 hours, we have frequently experienced connection drops.
Considering Oracle VDI is not supported by Oracle anymore, and will not receive any future updates, I wouldn't recommend Oracle VDI for most scenarios. Unless your organization is under some strict contractual agreement or there is a feature in Oracle VDI that isn't supported in its modern successors/competitors (haven't come across a feature like that based on my experience), I would recommend using something like VMware Horizon.
  • Pricing Models were harsh to begin with, so we invested more money on the license than we needed to.
  • Due to all of the laggy, buggy, and crashing interfaces, our administrators spent considerable additional time working on simple operations.
  • We missed out on many advanced features that Oracle VDI's competitors were rolling out, so we couldn't benefit from them.
VMware Horizon does everything that Oracle VDI is capable of doing and offers many more features, and unlike Oracle VDI, it is still receiving constant updates. Oracle VDI was a great solution for enterprise-level management of virtualized desktop when it was getting updates, but now that it won't be getting any, I would put it in the "outdated technology" category.

While working for Florida State University we purchased the Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure for managing, hosting and providing access to virtual desktop operating systems. These virtual desktop operating systems were hosted in our data center and could be accessed by faculty, staff as well as students to work on specific applications.
  • Providing desktop operating system virtualization is way more manageable using this Oracle suite.
  • It has a robust security infrastructure and provides great audit trails.
  • In our use of Oracle VDI, we have found there is a significant lag time when using the desktop environments through it, rather than the standalone virtual desktops.
  • Real time reporting and statistics can be improved as well.
For large and mid-sized organizations utilizing massive virtual desktop deployments, Oracle VDI offers great value. It supports a wide range of operating systems like Linux, Solaris, Windows etc.
  • Oracle VDI has enabled our users to access the same services from remote locations allowing work from home opportunities.
  • We have also successfully employed it for handling disaster recovery efforts.
From the end user's perspective the usability is not impacted at all.
Oracle VDI does an amazing job in reducing the complexity of managing multiple virtual desktop environments. However, it does impact the speed and performance in comparison to standalone machine access. We do not have precise metrics to compare performance but it is noticeable.
Oracle VDI offers easy integration with many enterprise tools and applications like Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle Database. t also supports most commonly used Operating system environments.

Before I started using VMware almost exclusively, I used Oracle VDI. My sole use was in building and maintaining images for Windows hosts. I would build my image on an Oracle virtual machine, and then capture it with FOG or something similar. I loved that I could access it from anywhere on the network, and make changes on the fly.
  • The user experience is great.
  • Remote access.
  • Rile sharing between desktops.
  • Frequent disconnects causing me to have to reboot my server.
  • Can be laggy at times.
  • Freezes regularly.
Oracle VDI will of course be well suited for any virtual environments like education, call centers, or business. I would not recommend it for any of those based on my experience with it, but I was one person using it with one task, and zero support. For an enterprise, I am sure that support is better.
  • When I used it full-time it worked for what I needed it - positive.
  • When it crashed, it costed me in time to wait to get it back up - negative.
  • Took up less space than using live machines - positive.
No contest, VMware ESXi blows Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure out of the water in both usability and dependability. When I was using Oracle VDI full time, I was constantly having to reboot my server because my VM froze. I have even lost work because of the freezing. I have not had this issue since switching to ESXi.
The easiest way to describe the performance is like this - when it is working, it works almost flawlessly. When it starts freezing, your day is going to get very interesting very quickly. As I have stated earlier, I used it for one purpose, and it did what I needed it to most of the time, but I did have issues with it.
Oracle VDI was my first foray into the Virtual Infrastructure world, and I thought it was great. Even though it had bugs and freezes, from the way I was having to do the same job in the past, it was great for me. However, when I tried VMware and was not getting the frequent freeze ups, I realized that I could have been more productive a lot sooner.
Again, I used Oracle VDI for one task, which was building and maintaining Windows images for different user levels. It was very easy to integrate into my environment, and the VMs were able to talk to my FOG server. I have never worked with it on integrating at an enterprise level, so I cannot attest to its functionality in that regard.
