Yes, we're aware of Oracle's support policy for VMWare, but not too concerned about it. As long as they still support Oracle, what more can we expect of them? If I had a problem with any other operating system, I wouldn't expect Oracle to fix it, so why would I expect Oracle to fix a problem with VMWare? From this perspective, their support of Oracle on VMWare isn't really much different than their support of Oracle on any other OS - virtualized or not (with the exception of RedHat/OEL, if you have purchased Linux support from Oracle). There is also a pretty large community of folks running Oracle on VMWare, including the Oracle and VMWare companies themselves, so I feel it's matured and supported well enough for a production environment.

The most obvious reason many oracle customers do not use vmware and are looking at oraclevm is the support issue.
