Overall Satisfaction with Oracle VM Server

Due to licensing issues with Oracle ERP and DB, we've separated our virtual environment and installed all Oracle production and test servers on the Oracle VM environment.
  • Allows us to use fewer licenses due to core and cpu limitiations with Oracle licenses.
  • Management/GUI is uncomfortable.
  • Remote control via VNC is hard to use with graphic interface and for terminal we have SSH configuration and maintenance is not as straight forward as in VMware, Xen or even Microsoft Hyper-V.
  • Saved us licenses fees while we upgrade to a virtual environment and redundancies servers
  • Forced me to manage another hard to manage virtual environment
Both are better than Oracle VM, but Oracle application licenses on them were too high.
The only reason we keep the Oracle VM enviroment is for the Oracle product, and again, not for performance, only for license issues.
