Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Exadata is also a very stable environment. Their Smart Scan feature is great for every banking environment and financial institutions willing to implement it.""Before using this machine, we took no less than two days to run a report. Now, we can do it within five hours. So, there is a lot of improvement.""The data replication is very good.""The storage capacity and the performance of Oracle Exadata are good. When comparing the performance to other technologies it is very good. I am satisfied with the management of the solution.""Regarding features, there are so many that we can offer to customers. When we sell Exadata Cloud, there are many options to choose from, especially when it comes to enterprise database options. In my experience, the main features that are appreciated are various ones like GPS and the assortment of security options.""The offloading of data to the SIM is a valuable feature.""The product is flexible.""Oracle Exadata's performance is one of its best features. We very satisfied with it."

"Vertica is a columnar database where the query performance is extremely fast and it can be used for real-time integrations for API and other applications. The solution requires zero maintenance which is helpful.""Vertica's most outstanding features are the compression rates achieved and the speed of access of high volume data.""For me, It's performance, scalability, low cost, and it's integrated into enterprise and big data environments.""Vertica has a few features that I like. From an architecture standpoint, they have separated compute and storage. So you have low-cost object storage for primary storage and the ability to have several sub-clusters working off the same ObjectStore. So it provides workload isolation.""Speed and resiliency are probably the best parts of this product.""The feature I like best is performance. We use Red Tool and Red Job for the data warehouse and reporting. It's perfect. Performance is good, and it can return ad hoc queries very quickly. Of course, it's a cluster, so it's easy to scale.""Allows us to take volumes and process them at a very high speed.""The performance is very good and the aggregate records are fast."

Cons
"The initial setup process is very difficult and extremely complex.""It is difficult to evaluate return-on-investment because of the way billing is handled for the product. This should be improved by oracle.""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.""Setting up Exadata is complex. You need an Oracle vendor or someone who is Oracle-certified to set it up.""There is room for improvement with the handling of the Temp IO, which is often used for JOIN statements.""The integration with third-party applications regarding access management security could be better.""The solution could always be more stable and more reliable."

"Promotion/marketing must be improved, even though it is a very useful product at very good price, it is not as "popular" as it should be.""Vertica offers a platform-as-a-service version, but their software-as-a-service solution is only available on AWS. They need to get a SaaS version on Azure and GCP as fast as possible.""When it is about to reach the maximum storage capacity, it becomes slow.""They could improve the integration and some of the features in the cloud version.""It's hard to make it slow for a small data volume. For large volumes, it's hard to make it work. It's also hard to make it faster, and to make it scale.""They could improve on customer service.""Support is an area where it could get better.""Some of our small to medium-sized customers would like to see containerization and flexibility from the deployment standpoint."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"All things considered, the price of this product is fairly high, as is always the case with Oracle.""It is an expensive product and you pay more for certain performance enhancements.""The price of the solution has been expensive to implement.""The majority of our customers are in government or big enterprises, and the projects that we sell come out to several million USD. With this amount of money on the table, it's always better to have an experienced team of consultants, who know Exadata very well, handle the implementation.""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.""The cost of the product could be improved.""The licensing can be a bit expensive because you need to have certain tools enabled that require them.""Oracle is always costly but it's fine."

More Oracle Exadata Pricing and Cost Advice »

"From a cost perspective, the software is less than most of its competitors.""The price could be cheaper and it is best to negotiate the price.""The price is reasonable. We use a pay per license model. Firstly, you need to buy a license. After that, you mainly pay the annual support fee of around 20% or 25%. I think their prices are quite reasonable.""The pricing could improve, it is a little expensive.""It's difficult today to compete with open-source solutions. In these areas, there is a lot of competition and the price of this solution is a bit pricy."
