Oracle VM VirtualBox Review

User-friendly, good documentation, and cost-effective


What is most valuable?

This product is very user-friendly and easy to use.

It has a good user manual and it's easy to find information about it.

What needs improvement?

When I select the Ubuntu operating system from within the virtual machine, it sometimes hangs. There are times when I need to reboot the system to resolve the problem. I have 64 gig RAM in my machine, and an i7 processor, so there is no issue as far as memory is concerned.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Oracle VM VirtualBox for approximately six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There are not very many bugs in the application.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There are between 15 and 20 students using this product. This is going to be expanding in the future because we are doing several migrations in the environment.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not been in touch with technical support. Since it's open-source, I just downloaded it from the internet and we are using it fine.

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

This is an open-source product and it can be used free of charge.

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I suggest to people because it's free of cost, open-source, very user-friendly, and all of the information for the end-user is available in the manual.

In summary, this is a good product but there is always room for improvement.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
