Oracle Solaris Review

Enables us to transition our large customers from datacenters to the cloud

What is most valuable?

The facility to work between database and the equipment. The facility to integrate with other platforms. Our customers use our cloud. They know the importance of Oracle. They have your own datacenter, but slowly, they want to change to the cloud.

How has it helped my organization?

Our strategy is to sell the Oracle cloud because it's easy to configure and to increase demand. And most important for us is the security. We have the biggest customers in Colombia, for example, Bank Colombia, Exito Retail, the biggest retailer in Colombia. Davivienda is another big bank in Columbia; Aval Group. All are working with us with Oracle Solaris.

It's slowly come to them. All the customers I named used IBM before. For example, Bank Colombia was on a platform called IBM Power. We sold to them the Solaris platform, the M7 platform, for digital information.

I think Oracle Solaris is stronger than Power in Colombia.

What needs improvement?

It's good. To me, it's better than other products. For example, Power AIX. I think Solaris better. 

For how long have I used the solution?

Three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's stable. When we sold the solutions with Solaris, we sold them with premium support. The stability is sometimes is not good. That's the truth. So we sold another component, the TAM (Technical Account Manager) for complete premium support. Oracle TAM helps us to have better support.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's scalable. For example, when the customer uses Oracle databases, you can migrate to the biggest version easily. This includes migrating from IBM Power to Solaris. I think this is added value for Solaris.

How is customer service and technical support?

Good. I think it's good.

What other advice do I have?

To me, the perfect vendor provides reliability, that's the big one. And security. That is the other big one.
