It's essentially Xen technology that runs on Oracle VM Server for SPARC, all of which runs on a base supported by Oracle, which is great.

Room for Improvement:

Xen running on Oracle VM differs greatly depending on whether you're using version 2 or version 3 in terms of directories, images, etc. So it takes some getting used to because they weren't release with consistent interfaces.

Use of Solution:

I've been using it since v2.x when it really went into production grade.

Deployment Issues:

We've had no issues with deployment.

Stability Issues:

Xen technology running on Oracle VM is rock solid. Again, versions 2 and version 3 are completely different, and it takes some time to get used to. But for users, it's still a rock solid product and works perfectly.

Scalability Issues:

So far, we've been able to scale it. We haven't had any issues with scalability.

Initial Setup:

The initial setup wasn't complex.
