One more point about KVM, that a friend just posted on Twitter.
Oracle have now updated their hard-partitioning rules to include KVM.

First of all, thank you very much for your invaluable inputs. They have
definitely helped us to define our stack – we’ll start with OL7 and KVM.
I consolidated the received feedbacks below – this summary could, perhaps,
be helpful to someone else standing at the same junction.
OS: OL7 seems to be a general consensus.
What came up is that almost any virtualization software would work and
it’s, therefore, best to choose the product with the best in-house support.
Find below the pros and cons for different products:
+ positive experience
+ good support
– license costs
+ free of charge
+ some financial benefits when moving to Oracle Cloud
- unpredictable behavior
- lack of general knowledge
- bad support
- not strategic by Oracle, as it was replaced by KVM in the latest Exadata.
+ free of charge
+ recommended by Oracle
- it doesn’t seem to be widely used with Oracle databases.
ACFS: There weren’t many feedbacks about ACFS, which might indicate that
this product isn’t widely used. It would be awesome, if more people could
share their experiences.
