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."

"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.""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.""The most valuable feature for us is horizontal scaling.""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."

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 installation is difficult and should be made easier.""Some integration with other platforms like design tools, and ETL development tools, that will enable some advanced functionality, like fully down processing, etc.""I saw some limitation with respect to the column store, and removing this would be an improvement.""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."

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."
