As I mentioned in my previous posts, technically if you need the best performance Hper-V is best for Windows OS, VMWare - for Linux OS.

Oracle OVM is best for Oracle apps & databases OS. Oracle OVM & KVM both are OK but OVM has a friendly interface and much better performance.

Secondly, it depends on your budget.
