Oracle applications are fully supported on VMware. You can read more about VMware's Oracle support policy here: Hundreds of VMware customers have already virtualized Oracle applications on vSphere

Hello Lai, As I mentioned in the notes below the cost comparison diagram, the RHEL licensing model used in the cost comparison is RHEL with unlimited virtual guests per pair of sockets ($3,249 with one year subscription). With this licensing model you are able to run unlimited RHEL VMs per pair of sockets. The cost comparison also assumes a 2 socket server. Therefore we are able to run unlimited number of RHEL VMs per server In the comparison, we assume we can run 12 VMs per server using OVM 3. With VMware's 25% VM density advantage, we can run 15 VMs per server using vSphere 5. Based on the above parameters, to run 100 VMs, we would require 100/12 = 9 physical servers. We would therefore require 9 RHEL licenses. The total guest OS licensing cost would be 9*$3,249 = $29,241. For VMware, we would require 100/15 = 7 physical servers, requiring 7 RHEL licenses. The total guest OS licensing cost would be 9*$3,249 = $22,743. Similarly, VMware's VM density advantage means we would require fewer hardware components (server, storage and networking) to build a virtual environment compared to Oracle VM. Hope this answers your question. Avi

by Avinash Nayak The good folks in Oracle’s marketing department deserve a raise for their efforts around promoting the latest release of the company’s virtualization solution, Oracle VM (OVM) 3. They certainly are aiming high, claiming OVM 3 is four times more scalable than VMware, four times cheaper to deploy... Continue reading
