We had some problems with OVM agents few years ago(we had to change IP
addresses of ovm servers and VMs on them, but couldn't connect to agents
after that) , and only OVM developers from oracle could find and
troubleshoot those 2 bugs,so ovm is really difficult for troubleshooting
and I'd try to avoid to use ovm too, but unfortunately oracle allows to
reduce license costs with hard partitioning on ovm only, not on VMware,
VirtualBox, hyperv, etc. Ovm is so not stable that every time I reconfigure
ovm, I'm affraid it can fail and stop working...

I would definitely go with OEL and VMware or OEL and hardware.
I personally would avoid OVM as much as possible because it is very hard
(or almost impossible) to find people in this area if you are in trouble
(e.g. https://twitter.com/OracleSK/status/1128650299793727490) and in
addition I also heard that it is very hard to find good trainings for it.
In case of VMware you have a pool of very good people in background (e.g.
Yvonne Murphy and her team at VMware in Cork, Ireland). Regarding the cloud
please also think about the new agreement between Oracle and VMware, e.g.
Independent Oracle performance consultant and researcher

Which VM would you use (if any at all)? Any experiences - positive and
Which Linux would you choose for new Oracle database 19c installations?
negative, alike - with ACFS, in particular with copy-on-write-snapshots?
