Oracle Database Appliance Review

A quick initial setup, good stability, and excellent system performance

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as an operational system.

What is most valuable?

The performance of the system is the solution's most valuable aspect. In combination with the database, it gives perfect results. It's a better system than using other kinds of integrated systems. In general, the ODA control is much simpler to use and offers up the best performance.

What needs improvement?

Technical support could be much better. The maintenance for an enterprise system isn't so great. It's also much expensive.

A future release should improve the availability of networking interfaces.

Hardware expansions availability should be in-line with product support. 

The solution should have the ability to offer an integrated management dashboard with virtualized systems and oracle DB manager in all DB supported versions.

The machine should have a visual monitoring interface, not also for hardware but also to DB and virtualized hosts.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable. We haven't had any issues over the past two years.

How are customer service and technical support?

We're not too pleased with technical support. The cost to have access to them is way too much money.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was fairly quick. It was easy to deploy.

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

The pricing of the solution is fair but the technical support pricing is quite high.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. It's a very good system.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
