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

Pros
The solution is simple to use and easy to maintain.The performance of the system is the solution's most valuable aspect. In combination with the database, it gives perfect results. It's a better system than using other kinds of integrated systems. In general, the ODA control is much simpler to use and offers up the best performance.The performance due to the all-flash of ODA is very nice.We primarily use it for OLTP, which has improved our costs.

Compression is a great feature, where one can really save a lot of storage.The most valuable feature is that you have the same familiar environment of an Oracle database but with the additional performance you get from this architecture.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
If we were able to use Oracle Database to create mobile apps, that would be great. I don't know multiple languages, like Java, etc. I need to learn a separate language, right now in order to do this.Technical support is not so great. It could be much better. The maintenance, for an enterprise system, isn't so great. It's also extremely expensive.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Exadata is an expensive tool, but, considering the ROI, it's worth going for the solution.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.
