Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"Exadata is an expensive tool, but, considering the ROI, it's worth going for the solution.""Oracle is always costly but it's fine.""It is an expensive product and you pay more for certain performance enhancements.""All things considered, the price of this product is fairly high, as is always the case with Oracle.""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.""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."
