Oracle Database Appliance Review

All-flash has helped reduce our report processing time

How has it helped my organization?

Report processing time has been reduced. We can use it in the future for our BI tool.

What is most valuable?

The performance due to the all-flash of ODA is very nice. 

What needs improvement?

The main thing would be to make ODA more affordable, to make it a more economical machine. Also, I would like to see virtualization, so you could implement all of your functions on one machine. Finally, improvement in the speed and performance would be good.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability is very good. There has been no downtime.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability means you can increase the storage. 

How are customer service and technical support?

ODA support is very good. Oracle support is very good. Online support is very good. Our local partner is also very good.

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

Previously I was using Exadata. Our technical team was already familiar with Oracle products so that's why we choose ODA. We had a license for Oracle Database.

When selecting a vendor the main criterion is support. Oracle support is very good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very easy.

What other advice do I have?

My advice would depend on the needs of the company. If the need is like ours, number of transactions per day, number of transactions per year; and whether the operation time is 24 hours, eight hours; these are the types of things to consider when deciding. Also, what is the downtime you can afford?

ODA performance has been very good for our requirements.

I would rate it at eight out of 10 because the product is stable, it has very low downtime, and the support of Oracle is very good.
