- Smart Scan
- Smart Flash Cache
- High Availability
- Robust Storage
Because of Exadata Systems, we were able to consolidate all the applications databases into one, e.g, Oracle EBS, Siebel, Hyperion etc.
Exadata Linux systems have Intel CPUs inside. I would suggest that if Oracle could work together with Intel to have some more intelligence at the CPU level, then there would be nothing like it.
I've been using it since June 2013.
We didn't have any deployment issues.
After three to four months we may need to perform a rolling reboot of the DB/storage servers.
I would say it's the best solution in terms of scalability.
We used both EMC Storage and IBM Servers.
The setup was simple, however, the database migration was a bit challenging, but there was no show stopper anywhere.
We are a vendor TCS (Tata Consultancy Services) and have as a customer the Taj Group of Hotels (IHCL), where we deployed and implemented Exadata Systems.
It's almost 100%.
Go for it if you are looking for consolidation/scalability.
