VMware VSphere is better than Oracle VM because on Oracle Virtual machine migration is not an easy task as in VSphere due to complications existing in Oracle VM. 

Also, Oracle VM is limited in features compared to VMware.

Oracle VM is limited also in communicating with other virtualization platforms like VMware.

If you need performance then Oracle OVM is more reliable.  

Otherwise, VMWare is good enough. We are using 4 virtualization platforms in the production, development and test environments.

Technically, Oracle OVM is the best for Oracle products apps/databases. VMware is for Linux guest OS.

And hyper-v is for a Windows guest OS  but hyper-v lacks network security and configuration.
