Oracle is probably the best database technology out there. I've never found anything as complete in terms of feature and functionality and sophistication.

Oracle VM Cons

JK
President with 201-500 employees
I've found that using Oracle VM is like stepping back in time. It's not kept up with technology. The only reason anyone uses it is that they're afraid of Oracle's licensing. Oracle has a tremendously bad licensing approach.

We do have a little trepidation with systemd, as it does have a learning curve.

The user interface of the version that we have requires improvement. They have already improved the user interface in the latest version, but we are yet to migrate to that. The new UI is much better. I would like it to be simple. It is serving all of our needs, and I don't think it is necessary to keep adding. We are able to provision a VM in ten minutes, and provisioning it in five minutes will not have any added benefit.

You need to have a model for documentation available for the users. Right now, if you have to search for some troubleshooting, you need to have Oracle login. Many personnel might not have that login. The reach, the availability of information to the end-user, is not there.

Something that could be improved are the snapshots that go in the ZFS Storage. If you want to enjoy Oracle VM, you will definitely want it to go together with ZFS Storage to maximize on the snapshot facility.

The solution needs more features and flexibility in terms of communicating with other platforms. If it had that, it would be the perfect product.

The performance could be better because I need to purchase a lot of CPUs to perform in the workbench.
