Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The ability to live migrate VMs on the fly from one hypervisor to another has been very useful.
Ability to patch with no downtime.
The stability of the product is fine.
The support staff in the tech support team at Oracle has improved. I find them extremely helpful and they give very solid support.
It is simple and straightforward, and it will only require you one system integrator to do the job.
It is a stable product.
It is very useful for the project management of our company.
This is a good and easy solution for running virtual environments.
This product is extremely easy to install, use, has a great GUI and is incredibly stable.
The initial setup was straightforward.
The most valuable feature is the ability to copy bidirectionally between the desktop and the virtual machine.
This solution can be used on many different platforms including Windows and Linux.
The solution is very stable.
I think VirtualBox has good stability because I use it in an environment with several resolutions.
The most valuable aspects of the solution were the support and performance of the product and the flexibility it gives you to work.
We do have a little trepidation with systemd, as it does have a learning curve.
There is no memory over-subscription and CPU over-subscription. That has to be improved in terms of Oracle VM perspective. The other leading virtualizing software solutions have this feature.
This solution is not as stable as other solutions in the market. But, Oracle has made an effort to improve these issues with recent updates.
The management can be improved more, and become more agile. It would be nice for it to become more rich in terms of UI. In addition, the replication to disaster recovery needs improvement.
It was a complex setup. It was very difficult for me.
Integrating with the internal system is not very easy.
This should have better support for multiple network cards and some parts of the GUI should be improved.
It could improve slightly with enhanced reporting capabilities that show the current status of the network.
The solution needs to improve its flexibility. It's not as flexible as VMware.
It should have the functionality where if I move the mouse away from one screen, the context changes automatically.
The user interface needs to be improved.
The solution should have more enterprise features, like migration, high availability storage, disaster recovery, and the ability to deploy to enterprise-scale usage. They should not just offer desktop usage.
The technical support needs to improve.
The solution has to do a better job of promoting the product and its licensing capabilities.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Licensing costs are less for Oracle Linux and for clients moving to the Oracle Cloud, as it is included in the price of the subscription.
I recommend this for any customer wanting to reduce their licensing costs for packaged applications.
If you choose Oracle hardware, then this virtualization software is included along with support.
We were able to deploy our solution at near zero cost compared to other vendors since the licenses come with our Oracle hardware.
The cost of this solution is cheap. It is one of the reasons we chose Oracle VM. It is truly "pocket- friendly."
Pricing and licensing is one of the main decision making reasons for going to Oracle VM because it was cost effective.
If you buy an Oracle server, this solution is free. You have to only pay for support.
The price of this product is high.
Everything is free within limitations. Once you go over a certain level of usage you have to license the product.
The product is free to use.
Pricing does not apply for us, we do not have to pay for the service.
It is a very cost-effective solution.
