Oracle VM Review

We can have one VM to share with the team that has all development tools set up.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features for us are the large number of available network configurations and its high degree of scalability.

How has it helped my organization?

We've improved a lot as I use it for creating VMs for software development purposes for our team. We can have one VM to share with the team that has all development tools set up so that when a new developer joins the team, they can be ready to work just by copying the VM. So it's saved lots of time for each developer to set up their development environment. Also, it keeps the team aligned with the different tools they use.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more improvements in the synchronization between the host machine and the VM especially in Mac machines. Also, more features around folder sharing would be an improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've used it for six years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We have had no issues with the deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have had no stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have had no issues scaling it for our needs.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Customer service is very good.

Technical Support:

Technical support is very good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I previously used VMware but switched because I got better support from Oracle.

How was the initial setup?

It depends on how deep I want to go, but normally the initial setup is straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

I used a mixed team of vendor and in-house personnel for the implementation.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I think the pricing is fair.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
