I have generally found that OVM is less stable and a harder to manage than
other virtualizing software. However, much of that experience comes from
using it on ODAs, which are notoriously difficult to manage to begin with,
so I may not be the best source of information.

I’d agree w/Mladen – I’ve not seen or heard “bad results” from anyone
running OEL/UEK 7 or RHEL 7 on VMWare or OVM. In many cases, as we talk to
folks, which Hypervisor they’re running often doesn’t even come up. These
things are so “commoditized” that it really does come down to:
1. Where do you have the “best” support in YOUR organization
(internally and with vendors)?
2. What will give you the lowest TCO?

Thank you, Mladen – then we’ll start our evaluation with OL7.
Is there any particular reason why you didn’t mention KVM (
) for virtualization?
VMWare isn’t strategic in our shop. In contrast, we’ve been having an
absolutely positive experience with Hyper-V for hosting SQL Server, but we
would like to avoid it for Oracle, as we’d need to deal with yet another
team, where it isn’t absolutely necessary.
No particular reason. As a consultant, I have most frequently encountered
the aforementioned hypervisors. I have no experiences with KVM, either
good or bad.
Anybody can share their experiences with OVM?
OVM can pretty much do what all other hypervisors can also do. In
addition to that, OVM virtual machines can be easily moved to Oracle Cloud
and Oracle is willing to discount the price for databases is you buy OVM,
which makes things cheaper for you. Again, those are business reasons, not
technical reasons. Hypervisor software has reached a level of maturity,
just like office software. All the office software suites can doc and docx
documents, export them as PDF and edit styles and fonts. BTW, OVM is KVM
