ORACLE VM (How) to use or not to use?


Oracle VM is another virtualization platform offered on the market today. In promotional materials, it is stated that it is cheap, and at the same time up to three times faster than the competition. It looks interesting and (too) good, so questions arise: Is it really so? What do you gain and what do you lose compared to the competition? Can I run Oracle database on this virtualization platform? So, how do I do that? In this lecture, I will try to give answers to these questions, based on my own experience.
