"It's too expensive per terabyte. It's complex.""The technical support is in need of improvement.""It would be good if Exadata made some new features available regarding data retrieval and speed capacity functions.""The management monitoring tools are quite important and an area that needs some improvement.""It is difficult to evaluate return-on-investment because of the way billing is handled for the product. This should be improved by oracle.""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.""There is room for improvement with the handling of the Temp IO, which is often used for JOIN statements.""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."
