Oracle VM Review

Stable, open-source, and the integration is good


What is our primary use case?

The main use case of this solution is integration. The integration of the database and compatibility with the affiliate in terms of license management. This will reduce the cost of the license.

It is the same use case as vSan except that you can partition the applications and it forces you to license the processor, as opposed to the server.

What needs improvement?

I would like to simplify the processes to implement. When you want to implement Oracle, the steps that you perform could be simplified.

The usage could be easier, and more user-friendly.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Oracle VM for a few months, we started using it in November.

We are using version 3.4.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's quite stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have 10 users in our organization. It's a new product.

We are still in the testing phase. We are looking forward to observing its behavior. If it behaves well and there are no major incidents that give us or the support team issues, we will continue to plan ahead and implement it.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support could be faster.

How was the initial setup?

It is very difficult to implement.

It is not user-friendly, so you need a bit of skill to deploy it.

When compared to other solutions, it is quite complex. The complexity depends on the individual environment.

What about the implementation team?

For the deployment, you need a consultant and an integrator. It is very difficult to deploy this solution. If you use the server storage, you need a consultant.

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

Oracle VM is inexpensive. It's open-source, but you pay for support.

Oracle is free of charge, although you have to have a subscription for the support.

What other advice do I have?

Currently, they are trying to improve this solution database and technology. They are trying to upgrade it to make it a more customizable database.

I would certainly recommend this solution to other users who have Oracle applications. It has been customized to optimize this database.

I would rate Oracle VM a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

3.4
