What is most valuable?

It is great for creating test environments.

How has it helped my organization?

The features that VirtualBox offers me are the same as VMware or Hyper-V. They create a snapshot of virtual machines so you can create test environments. You can go back to the... more»

What needs improvement?

The user interface I find to be lacking. If you compare it with VMware or Hyper-V, you have lots of room for improvement. I think that VirtualBox should be more user-friendly.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing does not apply for us, we do not have to pay for the service.

What is most valuable?

The cloning feature is a very useful tool.

What needs improvement?

The communications setup lags. It does not connect properly so the batching and networking is a bit slow. The networking needs to be a bit more robust. Also, it continues to upgrade itself, and I would like an option to switch this off... more»

What is most valuable?

One valuable feature would be for it to work right the first time but it doesn't necessarily do that. The shop that I'm in and the shops that I've been in, I've never been in a shop that was standardized on Virtual Box.

How has it helped my organization?

Everything, because we are the customer for database ... all our applications not only JDE, ERP or some third party applicants APK's also have the backend for Oracle. Because of the flexibility as well as performance wise and as well as data... more»

What needs improvement?

I think part of the reason is, is a lot of people do not trust Virtual Box because they think it's buggy. It seems to be a theme here. I got into it and it was buggy enough that I didn't want to continue using it.

What do you think of Oracle VM VirtualBox?

How has it helped my organization?: Desktop-based virtualization is a huge help in speeding product development. • What is most valuable?: VirtualBox provides an isolated, consistent environment I can use to experiment with software configurations or create developer sandboxes without affecting the consistency of my own work environment. • What needs improvement?: It's not as robust as server platforms, nor does it need to be. • What do I think about the stability of the solution?: It works perfectly for the task. We've had no issues with instability. It's a solid open-source product. • What do I think about the scalability of the solution?: We have had no issues scaling it for our needs.
