Well Oracle doesn't recognize it for their own partitioning, so they are at least consistent.

Actually, VMWare does the same type of partitioning that Oracle provides, but Oracle refuses to recognize it on VMWare which is bothersome. To me anyway.

Here is the documentation:

It says that they consider VMWare to be "soft partitioning" and Oracle VM can be either soft or hard partitioning depending on how it's configured.
