Oracle VM Review

While it is a good solution for virtualization, it is less flexible than other market solutions like VMware.


Valuable Features:

The CPU pinning feature that allows to link a virtual CPU (VCPU) to a physical CPU core. This feature is very useful in a virtualized environment who has on premise applications licenced by restricted number of CPU cores.

Improvements to My Organization:

As a virtualization solution, this product help us to build and deploy development environments more quickly.

Room for Improvement:

Resizing of Virtual disk needs to be improved, as does hot swap for VCPU and RAM.

Use of Solution:

I've been using it for years.

Deployment Issues:

There were no issues with the deployment.

Stability Issues:

We've experienced no issues with performance.

Scalability Issues:

It's been able to scale for our needs.

Other Advice:

While it is a good solution for virtualization, Oracle VM is less flexible than other market solutions like VMware.
