We have it working on VMWare 4 and 5, community and licensed versions.
We have it working on VirtualBox, both on Windows and Solaris hosts.
We have it working on KVM for illumos, tested on an experimental version of XStreamOS on bare metal with KVM built on it.
I have no OracleVM to test it.
If you can do it, we will love to know the results.

good questions.
At the moment, the key features are not to have more features at all than what illumos provides,
and a text-installer that places everything at its place as we usually do.
We at Sonicle liked the idea of having our own distribution of illumos, allowing us to streamline
kernel updates when we need it, and make XStreamOS the base for our products that we
used to deliver on Solaris 8/9/10 until Sun was acquired.
This is a starting point. Now that we have this, and share this with the community, we can start
thinking about key features to deliver.
Any suggestion will be appreciated ;)
Hi Gabriele,
I like the idea of a baseline OS, without and extra-stuff as long as the
basic features are available and since they are, I will surely give it a
spin. Do you happen to know, if it will run on OracleVM? I've had no
success with OI on that one and have been waiting for an illumos-driven
distro would be available that will run on OVM. Either Solaris 11/11/11
and OI had some issues with - I believe it was some apic stuff.
