Oracle Exalogic Review

The virtualization, especially vUser creation, is the most valuable feature for us. Reporting and bug fixes should be applied for this product on-time.


Valuable Features

The virtualization, especially vUser creation, is the most valuable feature for us.

Improvements to My Organization

Flexibility on server creation and deployment are much easier on this machine.

Room for Improvement

Reporting and bug fixes should be applied for this product on-time.

Use of Solution

We are the end customer and are managing Exalogic for our customer, and it's been in place for one-and-a-half years.

Deployment Issues

We had no issues with the deployment.

Stability Issues

We have had issues with the stability as the product failed on its promise for replication of all the components. There was a zpool failure which was exceptionally problematic.

Scalability Issues

We have had no issues scaling it.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

7/10

Technical Support:

7/10

Previous Solutions

This is being used in a customer's environment, and I am unsure if they used something previously.

Initial Setup

The initial configuration was performed by Oracle before handing over the machine to us.

Implementation Team

The first implementation was done by Oracle, and later on we did all the new implementations.

ROI

The ROI is good, but I would suggest only a high-end customer should go for this as Platinum support is a must.

Other Solutions Considered

This is being used in a customer's environment, and I am unsure if they evaluated anything else.

Other Advice

Certainly buy Platinum support as you will need Oracle's help every now and then.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We're partners.
