Oracle Virtual Server may not affect VMware

Shreck predicted that non-Oracle sites will continue to turn to established virtualization technology from companies such as VMware, Microsoft Corp. or Citrix Systems Inc.

Oracle, he said, lacks the systems management capabilities and independent software vendor partner relationships needed to create a virtualization platform for the masses. “I don’t think Oracle can keep up” with the virtualization capabilities of market leader VMware, or even Microsoft and Citrix, Shreck added.

Oracle’s decision not to support its own software running on the virtualization servers of other vendors may give it an advantage in its installed base, users noted.


But people should not forget this, Oracle doesn't care about "generic" virtualization, they are concerned about their own Oracle RAC and Grid project. This is giving Oracle a platform to build its grid upon, obviously they should tie-up with VMware, Citrix and other vendors, but you never know, maybe they have something we still haven't seen yet!
