We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The performance is okay as long as the volume of queries is not too high."
"The storage capacity and the performance of Oracle Exadata are good. When comparing the performance to other technologies it is very good. I am satisfied with the management of the solution."
"The most valuable feature is the time to solution."
"We can use virtualization on Exadata."
"The performance of the data is the most important part."
"It has improved the performance, now we run with more performance cores with less CPU to attend all the database demands. Reducing Time to Market, increase our ability to face the competition with speed and low cost."
"Exadata is also a very stable environment. Their Smart Scan feature is great for every banking environment and financial institutions willing to implement it."
"Regarding features, there are so many that we can offer to customers. When we sell Exadata Cloud, there are many options to choose from, especially when it comes to enterprise database options. In my experience, the main features that are appreciated are various ones like GPS and the assortment of security options."
"The business intelligence is very good."
"Ultimately, the product itself has challenges and we are not currently satisfied with the support, either."
"The solution lacks a visualized console."
"It would be good if Exadata made some new features available regarding data retrieval and speed capacity functions."
"Tech support sometimes takes some time to identify and rectify issues."
"There is a feature for security, but it is not included in the first purchase of this solution. That means if you need to increase the security, you need to buy the security feature which doesn't come by default on these solutions."
"I believe Oracle must improve its procedure to support the clients. The customer Ready Service must provide more use cases and benchmarks of their infrastructure to support client design decisions. Oracle must audit their partners regularly to guarantee they provide quality service even after been passed on partnership examination."
"The solution could always be more stable and more reliable."
"The improvement could be made on the hardware level as the habit in the industry is to go better and faster and larger with every iteration."
"The integration with third-party applications regarding access management security could be better."
"The majority of our customers are in government or big enterprises, and the projects that we sell come out to several million USD. With this amount of money on the table, it's always better to have an experienced team of consultants, who know Exadata very well, handle the implementation."
"Oracle is always costly but it's fine."
"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."
"The licensing can be a bit expensive because you need to have certain tools enabled that require them."
"It is an expensive product and you pay more for certain performance enhancements."
"The price of the solution has been expensive to implement."
"All things considered, the price of this product is fairly high, as is always the case with Oracle."
"The cost of the product could be improved."
