Overall Satisfaction with Oracle VM Server

We use Oracle VM Server for virtualization purposes, which helps to consolidate different services to run from single hardware. It allows users to extend their existing computer to run multiple operating systems including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Oracle Solaris, at the same time which is the basic concept of virtualization.
  • Installation and setup of VM Server are pretty straight forward.
  • Many different guest operating systems are supported.
  • There can be up to 128 virtual machines per physical server.
  • Feature limitations and low usability scores may lead some to consider VMware, Citrix, Red Hat, or an open-source platform.
  • Oracle VM Server lacks some of the flexibility offered by other options and users sometimes report issues with certain patches.
  • User interface of Oracle portal could be improved.
  • Customers can use a single bare metal server and use Oracle VM server to reduce cost on infra.
  • It has great price than other OEM to offer.
  • Migrating customers' workloads from AWS/Azure to Oracle gave them a huge benefit in cost reduction.
I didn't use any other virtualization production other than Oracle VM Server.
