Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""Compression is a great feature, where one can really save a lot of storage.""Exadata is also a very stable environment. Their Smart Scan feature is great for every banking environment and financial institutions willing to implement it.""The performance of the data is the most important part.""This product can noticeably enhance performance of contextual Oracle databases.""It has improved the performance, now we run with more performance cores with less CPU to attend all the database demands. Reducing Time to Market, increase our ability to face the competition with speed and low cost.""The most valuable feature is the time to solution.""Oracle Exadata's performance is one of its best features. We very satisfied with it."

Cons
"It's too expensive per terabyte. It's complex.""The technical support is in need of improvement.""It would be good if Exadata made some new features available regarding data retrieval and speed capacity functions.""The management monitoring tools are quite important and an area that needs some improvement.""It is difficult to evaluate return-on-investment because of the way billing is handled for the product. This should be improved by oracle.""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.""There is room for improvement with the handling of the Temp IO, which is often used for JOIN statements.""There is a feature for security, but it is not included in the first purchase of this solution. That means if you need to increase the security, you need to buy the security feature which doesn't come by default on these solutions."

"The organization who owns the product does not support it well and appears not to be doing significant development for the future."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Exadata is an expensive tool, but, considering the ROI, it's worth going for the solution.""Oracle is always costly but it's fine.""It is an expensive product and you pay more for certain performance enhancements.""All things considered, the price of this product is fairly high, as is always the case with Oracle.""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."
