The "single throat to choke" ruse is bantered about all too often. Buy your 
entire stack from a single vendor and yours is the single throat being choked.

That is the reason Oracle on Open Systems was a great alternative to mainframes 
and mini's of the late 80s. We've come full circle.

Oracle fully supports their products when virtualized under VMware.
Please see MOS note 249212.1

Basically, they will support you until they believe the issue is with
VMware at which point they will tell you to contact VMware.
Please note VMware has a dedicated group to working just Oracle on
VMware issues, so when virtualizing Oracle on VMware, you can actually
get BETTER support than running Oracle on native hardware.

Please check out some of the blog articles I've written on this:

Having said all that, I have Grid Control 11g and 12c both running fine
under VMware, monitoring a variety of Oracle DBs on various OSs, all
running under VMware.
