How to Install OVM and KVM?
I want to understand how the Oracle VM migration to KVM migration works and need to create the environment. I have my own VMware setup available. Kindly advise for installing OVM and KVM with their native manager.
Our security department has newly mandated installation of Microsoft endpoint detection. It is pretty straightforward on our OEL VMs. But what about the Dom0 OVM? I'm not able to find any documentation on this.
Any info or insight is greatly appreciated.

KVM is a kernel base hypervisor while Proxmox VE is open-source. Technically, Proxmox VE fulfills the smallest business users than KVM.
And if we go for the quality and support KVM is better.
But Proxmox VE has also more features according to business growth.

In a marketing services-related company security is paramount.
Therefore, you probably will rely on services, especially during maintenance of your network and need support for that.
When it comes to security and support KVM would be the better option. With in-house engineers, both Proxmox VE and KVM could be chosen. But qualified engineers are hard to come by nowadays, depending on where you live.
As a side note, I maintain mainly Xenserver, VMware and KVM. When it comes to performance per watt Xenserver would be the king, especially on larger setups.
Since your setup is of medium size and if you decided not to go for the aforementioned setups, KVM would be the lesser of the worse.
Your question depends a lot on the hardware/cloud system you have in mind. More details would make my recommendations more precise.
