We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
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.We previously used VMware but then moved to Oracle VM. I find that it works better than VMware in some cases.It is very useful for the project management of our company.The ability to live migrate VMs on the fly from one hypervisor to another has been very useful.Ability to patch with no downtime.

It is easier to balance loads across hypervisors if a given container or virtual machine uses more resources than its peers.We now have the ability to quickly build and deploy VM desktops for application testing with the snapshot ability to rollback, as required.Saves a lot of time compared to imaging physical desktops.The template option allows us to build a desktop in a VM, then quickly deploy as a linked clone.

Cons
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.The web interface could be faster.Integrating with the internal system is not very easy.We do have a little trepidation with systemd, as it does have a learning curve.One is the hypervisor. Right now, it’s all using Xen. What would be really helpful is to have some choice, and the underlying hypervisor technology use KVM which is very popular with certain workloads.

It would be nice to have total CPU and RAM allocations show for all VMs/CTs to avoid overloading an individual hypervisor.Separate physical network for Corosync/Heartbeat should be emphasized in the Quick Start or Getting Started documentation.Some of the more advanced features and options required for setup still need to use the console and hand edit config files.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.I do not have experience with the pricing and licensing of the product.The price of this product is high.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.
