What could be the best OVM release for Oracle Cloud - any one of the stable 2.x? or is it the latest 3.2.x ? OVM 3 is being adopted, I have seen. There are vast changes in OVMM GUI in 3.x.

    Hi Jigisha,

    I understand you're planning to build a private cloud based on OVM.

    In general terms we can safely say that the latest version is always the best choice. Oracle generally fixes all high impacting known bugs before a new release, plus introduces a number of enhancements that add value to the newer product. There is no reason to believe that an older version would be more stable, unless a specific unknown bug exists in the newer version.

    You can find more information on Oracle VM at .
    You may also want to explore the Private Cloud page at .
