Previous Solutions

In the past we used traditional RAC database architecture. We switched because this type of solution has many drawbacks, and Exadata is the best system for Oracle databases.

Initial Setup

It was straightforward using the OneCommand tool that is designed for Exadata deployment.

Implementation Team

We used an ACS engineer (advanced customer service) and the field delivery engineer did the implementation.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

It is little bit expensive compared to other solutions, but very useful. You just pay for one license which covers all the components within Exadata.

Other Solutions Considered

It is a new level of server designed for Oracle database software, so you cannot find any other options with Exadata storage software.

Other Advice

If you have OLT and are working 24/7 on an Oracle database, Exadata is the best solution for you. Before implementing this product you need to define your requirements clearly as this will help you to avoid future issues.
