Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The way that it scales will help a lot of customers that are stuck with Netezza boxes that can't grow any larger.
It will be MPP, so performance should improve.
Compression is a great feature, where one can really save a lot of storage.
The most valuable feature is that you have the same familiar environment of an Oracle database but with the additional performance you get from this architecture.
The technical support team are real professionals. I admire their technical skills and supports. Their supports are really admirable.
Our machine is used for our internal development of Oracle-based solutions, PoC benchmarking, and training/familiarization.
Containers get corrupted very easily. Restoring them using GPFS can result in a lot of issues.
Right now, we are implementing on ESX VMware 6.0. Support for this platform is poor. Also, one of the backup/recovery options is broken and IBM is not addressing the issue.
Tech support for dashDB is awful. We usually have tickets open for three to four weeks.
The technical support is in need of improvement.
It's too expensive per terabyte. It's complex.
We had issues with system restoration.
We would like an option of a hardware-only support solution, but Oracle currently does not provide this.
Pricing and Cost Advice
If your going to go with warehouse DB/dashDB, use the cloud or Sailfish version.
Exadata is an expensive tool, but, considering the ROI, it's worth going for the solution.
The price is very high.
I did note that Oracle does tend to internally oversize things especially if they want to fill up a budget, and hence third-party oversight is essential.
