Oracle Exadata Review

The High Availability and rolling upgrade features are the most important for us.

Valuable Features

The High Availability and rolling upgrade features are the most important for us. They help us achieve zero downtime and increased performance.

Improvements to My Organization

The biggest advantage to our implementation of Exadata is that because it's an Oracle-engineered system, our database administrations don't have to worry about performance tuning. It's already optimally tuned and, when compared to other systems, it's really provided us with better performance.

Deployment Issues

We've had no issues with deployment.

Stability Issues

It is brand new for us, and we are slowly getting other databases into it. So far, it's good, but we are not using 100% of them, so we still have to learn a lot.

Scalability Issues

It has the best scalability of all our Oracle products.

Customer Service and Technical Support

We've created a lot of cases, so we're in touch with Oracle support frequently. The service is consistent across all our Oracle products because they're located in one place.

Previous Solutions

We previously used IBM InfoSphere Warehouse.

Initial Setup

The initial setup was straightforward.

Implementation Team

Oracle provided us with an on-site consultant to perform the installation.

Other Solutions Considered

We also looked at Microsoft SQL. We chose Exadata as we have other Oracle products, including Database.

Other Advice

If you are buying Exadata, be sure to go with the latest version.
