Quotes From Members Comparing Oracle VM vs Proxmox VE

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
The ability to live migrate VMs on the fly from one hypervisor to another has been very useful.Ability to patch with no downtime.Overall, the biggest performance is around virtualization and automation, you can build private clouds with Oracle VM using Enterprise Manager.The virtualization product Oracle puts out just complements the performance of the database.​Because of the virtualization for Linux, I use just Linux basically in all VMs, a few with Windows.It provides enhancements for network and storage configuration, policy-based management for delivering application resource flexibility, and a GUI.We've noticed that when working with Citrix with our Oracle clients who also use Oracle Linux, the monitoring and testing is simpler and easier for us to do.In terms of server provisioning, it only takes a few clicks of a button and a bit of install automation.

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
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.I would say third-party plugins to other storage vendors. There are a lot of converged infrastructure setups; one that we have, multiple different hardware vendors. So that would be something we could definitely be looking for.I think more Command-Line options for the product, for deployments.Oracle's VM VirtualBox is a powerful, free, and open-source virtualization tool. However, you'll have to read a lot of documents and perform experiments in test environments to make it work for you.It doesn't monitor everything, which is a little bit more difficult. It doesn't seem to have as many features or metrics to monitor as some others do, so you have to make some homemade scripts to do it.With our current OVM Manager version, migrating a VM from one repository to another repository was really complicated, especially editing and manually matching the configuration.

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
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 scalability. You pay for what you use. It's free to download, free to install, and the support side has been very helpful.Oracle's VM VirtualBox is a powerful, free, and open-source virtualization tool.
