We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I really like the auto-tuning, auto-scaling, and the automatic load balancing and query tuning in the system."
"The analytics have been very good. We've found them to be quite useful."
"It provides Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) capabilities by default to address data security issues."
"Self-patching and runs machine-learning across its logs all the time"
"The solution integrates well with Power BI."
"The performance and scalability are awesome."
"Having the prediction happen in the modular format allows you to start with a lower version of Exadata and then you can keep on upgrading it as per your requirement."
"I would like to see an on-premise solution in the future."
"Sometimes the solution works differently between the cloud and on-premises. It needs to be more consistent and predictable."
"One of the major problem is creating custom tablespace. The ADB serverless option doesn't support custom tablespace creation, which could cause issues during on-premise database migration that requires specifically named tablespace. There should be an option to create customized tablespace."
"Ease of connectivity could be improved."
"The initial setup was pretty complex. It was not easy."
"It is very important the integration with other platforms be made to be as easy as it is with an on-premises deployment."
"The customer's default choice is the on-premise version of this solution. Only when Oracle or the partners like us, can explain to customers the cloud value proposition, and if the compliance authorities allow, they can look into this cloud solution. It will take some time for Oracle to change its perception of customers' de-facto standards. Exadata used to be treated as a black box, which is not the case now. The customer is aware of what is happening inside, how the configurations have been made, and what patching has been applied. Oracle needs to market the cloud version better."
"ROI is high."
"You pay as you go, and you don't pay for services that you don't use."
"The price of this solution is very comparative to others on the market. There is no direct comparison between this solution and with something else because I do not see any other similar product."
