It has a good, high-level of storage along with Auto Tiering

What is most valuable?

  • Auto Tiering
  • It has a good, high-level of storage.

How has it helped my organization?

With integration, you can compress, and reduce the load of your Oracle DB, in relation to HCC.

What needs improvement?

Main business applications run on it.

For how long have I used the solution?

For about five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?


What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Not in this case, but it has its limits based on the model you chose.

How are customer service and technical support?

The specialist are a 10 out of 10. Unfortunately to reach them, it could cost you hours on the phone.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I am a consultant. Customers change solutions all the time because of reliability, relationships, and costs.

How was the initial setup?

It was easy. Just know the protocol (what to turn on first and what IP address to connect to).

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Oracle is never the cheaper solution. Compared to others, it is always among the most expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, it was compared with EMC VMAX and Dell Compellent.

What other advice do I have?

Upon implementation, use the guide from the official manual, and if they have access to the EIS.
