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.The management monitoring tools are quite important and an area that needs some improvement.It would be good if Exadata made some new features available regarding data retrieval and speed capacity functions.We would like an option of a hardware-only support solution, but Oracle currently does not provide this.The technical support is in need of improvement.It's too expensive per terabyte. It's complex.We had issues with system restoration.
