Oracle Exadata Review

It provides performance for our highly critical applications.


Valuable Features

It provides performance for our highly critical applications.

They seem to be doing real well with keeping up on the performance and everything, especially what I have seen with the new chipset that is being offered. I can't really think of anything that they are not doing that they should be doing.

Room for Improvement

It can be difficult to patch and maintain because there are so many databases running on it.

Use of Solution

We have been using Exadata for about five years.

Stability Issues

We have had no down time with it, but it can be difficult to patch and maintain because there are so many databases running on it.

Scalability Issues

It is an absolutely scalable solution.

Customer Service and Technical Support

The support is very good.

I'm not involved in operations that much, but from what I understand, they get back to us; they always find the right person.

Initial Setup

Oracle comes in and does the initial setup.

Other Advice

I recommend it for highly critical, performance-sensitive applications. You have to do a TCO on it because it is a fairly expensive solution. There has to be a cost-benefit analysis done on that.
