Oracle VM vs. latest VMWare?

Do you have anything that compares the latest Oracle VM with the latest VMWare, feature for feature? I want to understand the strengths of both.

Thanks.

Basically if you want to run any oracle database or packaged product OVM is compatible. If its windows OVM runs in HVM ( hardware emulated mode) which is not as good as PVM in some respects .

Both are similar in features however if this is for ODA appliance then you should know that currently no management is offered and everything is converted to VM via Oracles Virtual Box.

Check out this comparison.

This is not a complete comparison because it does not list all of the applications that VMware supports. Most of the Windows applications, VMware supports (there are updates that need to be made but this gives an apples to apples comparison - https://www.ombud.com/product/compare/oracle-vm

You can have a look at Configuration Maximums sheets for both products. It is not exactly what you search (feature for feature).
Anyway, they haven't exactly the same features nor should them. But it is a good starting point to compare products.

Greetings,  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.

when you ask "how is it.." I'm assuming you want to know if it is easy or difficult. We find that it is easy to use and we leverage it to separate some of our servers onto different VLANs all within the same physical server. Reply if you want more detail and with what kind of detail you're looking to find.
