Oracle VM Review

The Red Hat KVM is better than the OVM in terms of performance and simple support.


What is most valuable?

We were curious and wanted to test the product since we were standardizing our virtualized environment. 

We knew that VMware was feature-rich, and we wanted to look as others as well to avoid vendor lock in.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using it for one years.

How was the initial setup?

It was complex.

What about the implementation team?

We did it in-house.

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

We were not happy with the aggressive licensing model of Oracle and thought we would end-up in a similar situation to the Database where we have to pay the license fee for passive nodes as well.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We selected VMware and KVM.

What other advice do I have?

The Red Hat KVM is better than the OVM in terms of performance and simple support.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
