Oracle Exalogic Review

It's important mainly for reducing time and complexity in the setup and first delivery of IT environments.


Valuable Features

It's vendor-managed, preconfigured, and engineered. It's important mainly for reducing time and complexity in the setup and first delivery of IT environments.

Improvements to My Organization

It's improved the delivery of virtual machines and setting them up with WebLogic (Application Server).

Room for Improvement

Live Migration of the vServers will be a plus, as well as a more robust EMOC/EL control behavior.

Use of Solution

We started using it in 2013, so for about four years.

Deployment Issues

We had no issues with the deployment.

Stability Issues

We faced, a few times, problems with the stability of the platform due to storage issues.

Scalability Issues

We have had no issues scaling it as needed.

Customer Service and Technical Support

The overall rating is sufficient, but we expected a little bit better. And for our level of complexity, we'd like a more responsive attitude from the Oracle Support.

Previous Solutions

We moved our WebLogic Servers from a Linux standard infrastructure to the Exalogic Platform in order to have a single "family" environment.

Initial Setup

The initial setup was fine, and it was performed according to our prerequisites.

Implementation Team

We proceeded in two ways. First, the initial setup was provided by the vendor team. After that, we managed the platform on our own, and designed the best vDC configuration.

Other Advice

It can be a good choice if you like to avoid labour in setting up the storage, network and computing. After this, you need to be prepared to rely on your team or the vendor support team because you’re going to face small but frequent issues.
