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.

Scalability is simple because it's an MPP database. If you need more processing power or you need more storage, you just add a few more nodes in the cluster. It works on common commodity hardware. You can use any type of server. You don't need to have proprietary hardware. It's fairly flexible.We chose Greenplum because of the architecture in terms of clustering databases and being able to have, or at least utilize the resources that are sitting on a database.It's one of the fastest databases in the market. It's easy to use. From a maintenance perspective it's a good product. The segmentation, or architecture of the product is different than other databases such as Oracle. So even in 10 years, the data distribution for such segments will not affect other segments. The query performance of the product, for complex queries, is very good. It has good integration with Hadoop.Very fast for query processing.

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.

Some integration with other platforms like design tools, and ETL development tools, that will enable some advanced functionality, like fully down processing, etc.The installation is difficult and should be made easier.Implementation takes a long time.One of the disadvantages, not a disadvantage with the product itself, but overall, is the expertise in the marketplace. It's not easy to find a Greenplum administrator in the market, compared to other products such as Oracle.they need to interact more with customers. They need to explain the features, especially when there are new releases of Greenplum. I know just from information I've found that it has other features, it can be used to for analytics, for integration with Big Data, Hadoop. They need to focus on this part with the customer.They need to enhance integration with other Big Data products... to integrate with Big Data platforms, and to open a bi-directional connection between Greenplum and Big Data.It will be very useful if we could communicate with other database types from Greenplum (using a database link).

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.
