We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The performance due to the all-flash of ODA is very nice.We primarily use it for OLTP, which has improved our costs.I give it a nine out of 10 because it gives the customer easy access to a complete database solution within 30 minutes.We value the appliance architecture with its “everything-in-a-box” highly standardized setup.NVM Express (NVMe) solid-state drives: This technology brings outstanding I/O performance for midsize databases. We have tested it by doing POCs on customer sites and the results were quite satisfying.

Reduced the cost while providing the benefits of Exadata storage, like, HCC compression, high disk capacity, etc.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.

Cons
The main thing would be to make ODA more affordable, to make it a more economical machine. Also, I would like to see virtualization, so you could implement all of your functions on one machine. Finally, improvement in the speed and performance would be good.Oracle Database Appliance patching comes out two to three months after the regular patching cycle.In my opinion only one single command should be used for all ODA models, as it’s confusing.Virtualization features could also be improved. A web-based GUI would be a good start.

They should have allowed SQL offloading with reduced cost.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
In regards to licensing, it is cheaper to maintain for Oracle applications, and it's an all-in-one solution.Leverage the Pay-As-You-Grow licensing, and consider using the ODA X6-2 S/M/L models also for SE2/SE.Get benefit from the capacity-on-demand features. License your cores according to your licenses.

Companies with limited budget for high end technology can now afford the Exadata machine.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.
