What is most valuable?

The valuable features are the cost and the convenience of the physical machines, meaning that you can have multiple virtual machines that you can use for many other different tools, not just Hyperion. We work with different Oracle products... more»

How has it helped my organization?

For example, we are going to upgrade our Oracle BI product, so that needs to have more servers. What we are thinking to do is to create more VM's in the same physical server instead of buying more physical servers. It's just a matter of... more»

What needs improvement?

Initially, you did not have an option in Oracle VM to build an image and just restore into a different physical or virtual environment, but now the option is included. That's one thing I thought wasn't there and wanted to have, because we are... more»

What is most valuable?

I think the most intriguing thing about Oracle VM is it's an enterprise-grade hypervisor. So it handles all the virtualization, and it's free. You don't hear the word Oracle and Free a lot, but there's a lot of stuff at Oracle that is free... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Cloning VMs helps a ton, especially when interface into EM, so users can build their own sandbox environmentnt, complete with WebLogic AND Database

What needs improvement?

What features would I like to see in Oracle VM in future releases? I can think of a ton of them. Some of them are just coming out. Better disaster recovery, though they just introduced a new technology called Oracle VM Site Guard that's... more»

What is most valuable?

* Bare metal virtualization * SR-IOV * Live migration * Hardware compliance

How has it helped my organization?

This product is directly related to hardware, so it is a complete technology with hardware, operating system, and virtualization software. The following are attributes that have improved my organization - * Robustness * Security * Scalability... more»

What needs improvement?

* The SR-IOV technology should be improved more as it only supports basic functions. * It does not have a graphical maintenance screen. The OVM manager interface has so little functionality for managing control domains only. It is not a big... more»

What is most valuable?

Live migrations work as advertised and, if set right, it moves VMs around to balance out the resources.

What needs improvement?

Development of the product seems slow, but then again, I do not want a rushed product. Oracle states that this is their solution for their products, but Windows is fully supported. It may not have all the features of VMware, but those features come at a cost (monetarily and performance-wise). I want a rock solid foundation, and I don't want a bunch of hooks into... more»

What is most valuable?

* Diverse guest operating system support: 10/10 * Secure live VM migration: 8/10 * Storage live VM migration: 8/10 * High Availability: 10/10 * Advanced management for zero extra cost: 10/10 * Faster software deployment with Oracle VM templates: 10/10 * Virtual Appliance support: 10/10 * Rapid VM provisioning and cloning: 10/10 * Full Stack management: 10/10 It... more»

What needs improvement?

The only improvement that I want to see is more flexibility in configuring and managing Oracle VM server with a CLI if there is no Oracle VM Manager. Oracle restricts you to managing the Oracle VM server via Oracle VM Manager and not through a CLI on Oracle VM Server.
