What is most valuable?

The most important feature for us is clearly the foundation it provides. In addition to that, we've found the High Availability and flexibility to be important as well.

How has it helped my organization?

It's made us a lot more agile. We don't have to acquire new hardware just to bring it up or utilize new services for our customers. It makes it a lot easier for my team to allocate resources for the other business teams at the company.

What needs improvement?

I definitely could see some improvements in Operations Management. That's another product that they have, but it's lacking in a few things. I feel that it's not as aggressive as it should or could be. They have different levels built into it,... 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 needs improvement?

The networking component of the setup needs to be less complex.I have one physical server with four built in LAN ports (NIC1, NIC2, NIC3 & NIC4) and I want three more VMs on it. In order to distribute the traffic load, I want to assign... more»

What do you think of XenServer?

Primary Use Case Virtualization platform that was easy to maintain for our staff expertise and allowed for inexpensive licensing when support was required. • Improvements to My Organization Allowed us to maintain a desired level of high availability between our XenServer farms.

I have used all of the features at one time or another. • Room for Improvement Integrated workload balancing and virtual switch management that doesn't require another virtual appliance to control. • Use of Solution More than five years. • Stability Issues Rock Solid for the most part, of course, as with any technology there are software patches required...

What is most valuable?

KVM runs virtualized guests with its own kernel, which is very important to me.

How has it helped my organization?

I mainly use it for customer projects, as KVM allows running virtualized environments for free in a very efficient way. Furthermore, it is an open source solution so modifying the code is possible. One might think that this is never necessary... more»

What needs improvement?

Setting KVM up and running it with dozens of parameters can be annoying. However, there is a control interface called Virsh (and also a GUI called virt-manager) which allows running KVM guests with a simple config file.
