Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Oracle VM.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
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.
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.
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.
Snapshotting could be easier. And there could be more intuitive ways for cloning of virtual machines.
* ability to use live migration and cpu pinning together would be very useful. for example reserving certain physical cpus on the target system prior tothe live migration for example.
Currently, there are some cases when the GUI and the back-end go out of sync. For example, the GUI shows the VM as running whereas it is actually already shut down. This could be improved.
