Oracle VM VirtualBox Review

An easy to set up solution good for testing virtual infrastructure that needs better flexibility

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution to test our virtual infrastructure.

What is most valuable?

The solution works quickly.

We can install Oracle VM Manager and from this manager, we can create our VMs on the machine.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to improve its flexibility. It's not as flexible as VMware.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using the solution for about four months now.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

We use the private cloud deployment model.

We're currently in the testing phase, but we're hoping to go into production soon.

We moved to using Oracle VM because we have a small license. We did not enough have licenses for all server cores. Oracle VM has an advanced feature for hard partitioning.

We're using the solution for the Oracle database but only on the Oracle application server.

I'd rate the solution six out of ten.
