Oracle VM VirtualBox Scalability

Werner-Schonborn
Product Specialist at Schoemans Offcie Systems (Pty) Ltd
I think it is a very scalable product and it stays stable while you scale it. For example, while it is active on a production server, you can expand the capabilities. You can stop and start or add virtual machines. The only thing that you have to know is not to allocate more resources on that hardware platform than is available in the hardware. The scalability of the hardware is separate from the product itself. You can't scale the product bigger than the resources on the box. View full review »

So far my needs have been really static. I've not really tried to invest in scalability because my needs are fixed currently, so I do not have too much to say about scalability. But it should not be an issue. View full review »

It is very good. I think there is a lot of things you can do with it. But as I said, I've been using it for production only for desktops and test purposes and training purposes. I think if we hire more employees in the company, we will have them use it as well. It is free when you use it for desktop purposes and training purposes. As long as you're not using it for production, you don't have to pay for it. I think as long as we get new employees in our company they most likely will be using VirtualBox. View full review »

If you wanted to scale this solution out, or up, an automation tool may make it easier and more user-friendly, or more straightforward. View full review »

The solution is scalable. Nowadays all products are scalable. The scalability basically depends on the hardware and software. However, when you're talking about product, 90% of the products are scalable. View full review »

I don't have enough information to gauge the solution's level of scalability. Our set up was in a controlled environment without scalability issues. We had an initial load, which was quite controlled, so we didn't test scalability with it. We just have our team, five people, using the solution. View full review »

I have not needed to scale higher than what I set out to do. Everyone in our company uses the solution. It is used by just 12 staff members. We have one administrator managing the solution. View full review »

This is a highly scalable solution for our infrastructure. We have over 1000 people using this solution. They are using a computer system which has authentication, uses an active directory setup, with corresponding credentials. They are also accessing other software and central data storage for their file and storage management systems. Additionally, they are using a web application and database management solution for their specific role. View full review »
