The price is the solution's most valuable aspect. It's much cheaper than, for example, VMware.Stability and speed are the most valuable aspects.The most valuable feature of this solution is the support portal.Technically, the main reason why I'm using Red Hat is because of its stability.Red Hat is the most stable system.The solution is a great all-round product. The virtualization is especially good.One of the most valuable features of this solution is the popularity of the OS.

Cons
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.

In comparison to VMware, this solution isn't as stable. We're testing it right now, and we're not trusting the stability of the product.It lags behind in that you need to go to something like Fedora to get all the extra bells and whistles.Configuring the network interfaces is much better in Ubuntu and should be improved.I heard that there are big differences between Red Hat eight and seven, but it's still quite difficult for me to judge it. I found it a bit more difficult to manage than version seven, which was much easier. In term of features, though, it is still not yet clear which is better. I have no clear idea of which features need to be changed at the moment.The Administration of the Oracle database and the SAP ERP needs improvement.The solution could use network virtualization.It would be better to have more patches, especially kernel-level updates, live and online so that we can keep the business up and running during this period.

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.

We are using the free version of Red Hat.I would say the price is acceptable.This is an open-source solution.
