Oracle database on VirtualBox VM or Docker?

I am trying to get a Oracle database to be used for development purposes. I want to reduce the footprint of the database on the host (Windows).

Would it be better using a VirtualBox VM or a Docker container?

  • what does -c means?
  • Can't push a new docker image to bluemix
  • how to pass command line arguments to a python script running in docker
  • Docker and sensitive information used at run-time
  • Docker: Do I need to rebuild the container from scratch whenever I need to add software?
  • I’m guessing that the Docker container will not give me any substantial advantage as I’m going to need a Linux kernel anyway so I’m leaning toward the VM option.

    Also is there any in-memory databases which can successfully mock Oracle databases? If so what editions?
