Oracle is probably the best database technology out there. I've never found anything as complete in terms of feature and functionality and sophistication.

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 most valuable aspect of the solution is the resource management from the OVM Manager.

The solution is very stable. I don't recall any bugs or glitches. It's reliable. It doesn't crash or freeze.

Oracle VM Cons

I've found that using Oracle VM is like stepping back in time. It's not kept up with technology. The only reason anyone uses it is that they're afraid of Oracle's licensing. Oracle has a tremendously bad licensing approach.

We do have a little trepidation with systemd, as it does have a learning curve.

You need to have a model for documentation available for the users. Right now, if you have to search for some troubleshooting, you need to have Oracle login. Many personnel might not have that login. The reach, the availability of information to the end-user, is not there.

The solution needs more features and flexibility in terms of communicating with other platforms. If it had that, it would be the perfect product.

If you do a gap analysis between VMware and Oracle VM, you can't do VM Snapshot. That's one thing you can't do. It's a sort of a snapshot, but it's not really Snapshot technology. It requires that you're running on CFS-2.
