Oracle VM vs. latest VMWare?

Do you have anything that compares the latest Oracle VM with the latest VMWare, feature for feature? I want to understand the strengths of both.

Basically if you want to run any oracle database or packaged product OVM is compatible. If its windows OVM runs in HVM ( hardware emulated mode) which is not as good as PVM in some respects .

Both are similar in features however if this is for ODA appliance then you should know that currently no management is offered and everything is converted to VM via Oracles Virtual Box.

Check out this comparison.

This is not a complete comparison because it does not list all of the applications that VMware supports. Most of the Windows applications, VMware supports (there are updates that need to be made but this gives an apples to apples comparison - https://www.ombud.com/product/compare/oracle-vm" target="_blank">https://www.ombud.com/product/compare/oracle-vm

You can have a look at Configuration Maximums sheets for both products. It is not exactly what you search (feature for feature).
Anyway, they haven't exactly the same features nor should them. But it is a good starting point to compare products.
