* We do have a little trepidation with systemd, as it does have a learning curve. * Changing the binary logging format feels like a retrograde motion to us, but sadly almost all Linux variants have moved in this direction. View full review »

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. There are also some features around it, extracting virtual machines and managing it, that could show some improvement. There’s still some area for improvement with some of the newer technologies.

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. View full review »

I do not think this solution is as stable as other solutions in the market. But, Oracle has really been trying to update the solution with the most recent release, and I find it is less buggy than it had been. In addition, I think Oracle VM should integrate its own backups rather than relying on other Oracle tools for virtual backups. View full review »

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. Also, the monitoring aspect. Right now, there's a hook in to OEM, but I would like to see that part a little bit more mature so that it's a standalone. View full review »

I think more Command-Line options for the product, for deployments. I know that the latest version includes OpenStack support so you can manage things in any kind of OpenStack-certified solution. But I prefer to use Command Line traditionally with shells. View full review »

There is no memory over-subscription and CPU over-subscription. That has to be improved in terms of Oracle VM perspective. The other leading VM software solutions have this feature. View full review »

Snapshotting could be easier. And there could be more intuitive ways for cloning of virtual machines. View full review »
