While I cannot confirm this, during a VM presentation a couple of months ago VMWARE said that there had been only 1 support ticket closed by Oracle over the last 3 years due to Oracle running on VMWARE (or any issues discovered because of VMware). They mentioned that this item was on an old VMWARE version that has had the issue resolved.

While we are not running anything I would consider mission critical on VM boxes, that is mainly due to performance related items and not the support issue. We do run production databases on VM hosts and have not had any issues opening tickets with Oracle.

Hi folks,
Based on Oracle's ML note 249212.1, it seems that Oracle does not officially certify any of its product for VMWARE, but it does certify its products for the Oracle VM (464754.1). Having stated that, I am interested to know if folks in this DL are running mission critical Oracle software on vmware, particularly Oracle e-Business and fusion middle-ware SOA suites, and what is their take on Oracle's support statement?
