Overall Satisfaction with Oracle VM VirtualBox

Oracle VM VirtualBox is being used across the development department, mostly to run training environments. This helps us prepare preconfigured VMs with all the tools our engineers need to complete their training at different levels throughout their careers. Providing these training environments was always a challenge before, and after trying cloud options to provide online instances of the training environment, we decided to create these VMs and give offline options on a as-needed basis for our employees and avoid costs from having a growing cloud server capacity.
  • Configuration is easy
  • Compatibility with Open Standards for VMs
  • Learning how to use it is very simple
  • Great features for communication with the host system makes it easy to share resources
  • Documentation about commonly used features should be more easily available
  • Having more examples of what's possible with the software would be great, maybe showcasing peculiar implementations from others and the problems they were able to solve
  • Maybe simplify common actions to be applied to multiple VMs at once
  • Mainly in avoiding costs of other solutions by providing virtualized options instead
  • It makes it easier for our engineers to get the resources they need in a portable environment
  • It is great to do research or test things out in an isolated virtualized environment without affecting the host system

Do you think Oracle VM VirtualBox delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Oracle VM VirtualBox's feature set?


Did Oracle VM VirtualBox live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Oracle VM VirtualBox go as expected?


Would you buy Oracle VM VirtualBox again?


The most common scenarios for me where Oracle VM VirtualBox is well suited are when you want to create reusable resources and shared them on VMs for many users as a standalone solution and when you want to try things between different operating systems, you can opt for a VM to test things out without affecting the host system.
