Product Reviews
ORACLE VM 1-CLICK ORDERING is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using a virtual operating system simplifies the installation procedure, system maintenance, and system backup. It allows you to be hardware independent. Valuable Features:* It's easy to implement.* It supports USB 3.0.* It provides for cloning of images from real machines or VMs.Improvements to My Organization:Having a virtual operating system has many advantages. Using such an approach simplifies the installation procedure, system maintenance, and system backup. It allows you to be hardware independent.Room for Improvement:It needs better support for 3D. This would allow us to virtualize operating systems used by designers or architects. The base virtual disk (VDI file), which contains the state before taking the snapshot, should be aware if it has some related snapshots. This would help to eliminate issues when moving or migrating virtual machines to new hardware, e.g. if you move the base virtual disk file but forget to move the snapshots.Deployment Issues:For some Linux distributions, I had a high CPU utilization when running Oracle VM Virtualbox. Sometimes with Linux, there was a problem with freezing the host system.Stability Issues:There were some issues with the toolbar menu when using two monitors. In the end, I managed to get those issues resolved either with changing the virtual machine configuration or by updating to a newer version of Oracle VM Virtualbox.Scalability Issues:We've had no issue scaling it to our needs.Technical Support:I have only used community support and there are a lot of technical guides and discussions that can guide you to a solution.Previous Solutions:For virtualizing desktop solutions, we did not use a previous solution. For server environments, we did. I have used Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESXi.Initial Setup:The initial setup was clean and straightforward. There might be some additional task to do, e.g. installing the DKMS module on some Linux distributions, but this is rather a distribution-related issue. It is possible to have to change settings in the BIOS, but the software gives enough good information when starting, e.g. if something is not enabled in the BIOS. With Windows, it is very easy to set up a host environment.Implementation Team:All implementations were done by me. I wrote some manuals and guides for my colleagues so they could do the roll-out afterwards.Other Advice:Be sure to have enough hardware resources to run the virtual machines smoothly.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Linux-wise, I go with the VirtualBox because of the simplicity. Valuable Features:I can manage the VirtualBox images. It's a VirtualBox. We work with both VMware and VirtualBox. Linux-wise, I go with the VirtualBox. I don't go with the VMware, because of the simplicity. Especially when you're using Oracle Linux, you are matching the products together. The manageability of the virtual images is much better. That's what I like.Room for Improvement:If I could maybe have cloud images, that would be awesome. It's going to be hard to manage cloud with a cloud, or image with an image, but hey, if it can be done, we can do that, too. Why not? You have mobility, so you can use something. You can have a server with all of the VirtualBoxes there and the images there. For example, if you are managing an application, you can use it from a touch of a screen. Why not?Use of Solution:I've been with this company since November 2015, and they've probably been using it for quite a longer time than I'm here. From my perspective, that's roughly a year.Stability Issues:It has been consistently stable over the past year. We didn't have any down time. All of the images were always perfectly done.It's funny; sometimes one of the IT departments would say, "Well, why don't you convert your VirtualBox to VMware?" That means I have to redo the whole thing. So, I said, "Forget it. I'll stay with this one." Don't add more fire to a fire. Just leave it as it is. If it isn’t working, then maybe you try to put it out with water, but that doesn't work sometimes. Just stay where it is. It’s meant to be like that.Scalability Issues:It is scalable. It does what we need to do with our images for our production, especially for the Linux images.Technical Support:I don't really have any contact with support, because everything works fine. I haven’t had a chance to actually talk to them. Maybe not right now, but from previous engagements, I have some experience with Oracle support and also the community. I'm part of the OTN. I’ve been a partner of the OTN since before I joined my current company. Before that, for another engagement, they were using Oracle, and I decided I needed to know something. I logged in, I asked some questions, and people come on. That's how you learn. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.Other Advice:What are your needs? What is the most important for you? Then, we can show you what you can manage. The benefits: It's Oracle, so there you go. You have a VirtualBox. It's well-known. It's stable. I use it. If it works for me, it might as well work for you. Simple.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Automatic mirroring/backup using snapshots on the runtime can minimize the number of fail-recovery procedures and down time overall. Valuable Features:Automatic mirroring/backup using snapshots on the runtime can minimize the number of fail-recovery procedures and down time overall. Running Virtualboxes with individual stacks clarifies use cases and minimizes risk while users test different partial solution elements.Virtualboxes can also run in different physical machines so that the relative demand of processing power can be met while maintaining optimal usage of each physical machine. This ensure that the risk of overloads is minimized during peak demand times.Improvements to My Organization:It's helped us utilize spare capacity on servers and test new platforms and frameworks. It has also improved the staging of our apps before implementations.Room for Improvement:Managing virtual machine stacks on an individual and stacked basis needs work. It also lacks the ability to perform auto-recovery switchover.Moreover, they should define Virtualbox stacks as groups of virtual machines working together as solutions. It would also help if they could define auto-backup/mirroring and failover configurations.Use of Solution:I am still evaluating the methodologies with the current free versions.Deployment Issues:We've had no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:We've had no issues with the stability.Scalability Issues:There have been no issues scaling it for our needs.Initial Setup:I set it up myself and tried to configure it to the extent of my knowledge.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's easy to install and configure, and we're able to share USB devices between host VMs. Valuable Features:The most valuable feature for us is the fact that it's free. It's also easy to install and configure, and we're able to share USB devices between host VMs. In this case, 'sharing' means that only one instance can use the USB device at a time, but you can detach the device and attach it to a different instance (VM or host). This is valuable as it allows you to transfer data without networking.Improvements to My Organization:I can install and test VMs on my own computer before installing live versions on the company VMware host.Room for Improvement:Stability should be improved because sometimes the VirtualBox stops. I believe this maybe a compatibility issue, but I'm not sure.Use of Solution:I've been using it for three months.Deployment Issues:We have had no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:Sometimes the VirtualBox stops and the process cannot be killed. The computer then needs to be restarted.Scalability Issues:We have had no issues with the scalability.Customer Service:I've never asked for support from customer service.Technical Support:I've never asked for support from technical support. The issue I had was not important enough for me to need them.Initial Setup:The initial setup was straightforward and easy.Implementation Team:We did it ourselves in-house with no need for support from the vendor or any third-party team.Cost and Licensing Advice:I use the free version.Other Advice:You should try it as it's free.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
