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

Pros
The automation and provisioning of the environment, as well as the centralized monitoring, have all improved over the years.Provides high-speed network, strong storage features (ZFS), High Availability out of the box, and is Integrated with a large number of products.Exalogic offers integration with other engineered systems, which increases the throughput capability and enables processing of bigger and heavier workloads.Server consolidation. In a cloud architecture, moving the HA VM from one to other is faster. This is because of the InfiniBand network fabric between the compute nodes and storage nodes (ZFS Storage).Scalablility: When we need to upgrade from an eighth-rack to a full-rack, the real downtime is less then an hour.Enterprise high-speed interoperability: With IPoIB we can deliver to other environments, either IP-Ethernet-based or IP-InfiniBand-based protocol, both with minimum bandwidth capacity of 10Gbps, 20Gbps, or 40Gbps, redundantly.

It is scalable as the box can be increased by one compute node, if required.It has helped us to reduce Oracle licensing costs for database and applications.Supports connection to most of network topology, such as VLAN and network segmentation.

Cons
The solution is prone to disk failures. This needs to improve. Over the past four years we've had to replace about six of them. They've failed almost every three to six months.Middleware application services, such as statistics, data mining, could be better.

OVM Manager Interface is using HTML5. It should be reconverted to be a Java interface.Patching processing takes a long time. Only one compute node is patched at a time.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing and licensing are two very delicate aspects when talking about Oracle, especially engineered systems. The prices are quite high compared with other similar products, so the CapEx analysis and investment return have to be very well studied.To expand the hardware's capability requires a massive investment.Get the price of the license you will need for the middleware that will be running on top of the Exalogic. Otherwise, you can use another middleware solution, as long as it can run on top of Oracle Linux.

If you have many Oracle products, such as databases, middleware, and apps, it will help you reduce Oracle app licences and support costs.No licenses for the shipped software or firmware.It is more expensive than the normal solution or the hyper-converged system.
