We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"In the cloud, Exadata is more scalable. The on-prem version was limited. It wasn't that scalable because it only came in a quarter rack, half rack, and full rack. In the cloud, it scales to what you need."
"Pivotal Greenplum's shared-nothing architecture."
"The parallel load features mean that Greenplum is capable of high-volume data loading in parallel to all of the cluster segments, which is really valuable."
"It's super easy to deploy and it also supports different languages and analytics."
"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."
"Oracle's support could be better."
"Initial setup is a little complex. It took around two weeks to deploy."
"The initial setup is somewhat complex and the out-of-the-box configuration requires optimization."
"They should add more analytics. Their documentation could also be improved so that I don't have to bother my co-workers and tech support so often."
"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."
"I think Oracle pricing is usually above average market price."
