Quotes From Members

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

Pros
The performance is significantly improved, and the administration is easy because it is a single platform end-to-end.A valuable feature is the Exadata Storage appliance, optimized for database queries.Because it's classified as an engineered system, it's all integrated, it's all supported by one vendor. We don't have to go to multiple vendors for support, it's all integrated under Oracle.

Cons
If they had an application that centralized the administration, not about the monitoring, but for the configuration, it would be better.I would like to see control domain and zone management via a management console, similar to that of OVM.There are many areas for improvement. For example, better guidance in terms of troubleshooting issues relating to ZFS, as well as better tools/diagnostics for monitoring that specific component, to better identify potential issues. Hardware monitoring via OEM 13.2 is not 100 percent, as Ops Center is still required in some instances.If it had capabilities to integrate really well with DB2 or SQL Server or Hitachi SANs, those sort of things, that would be a real benefit. Right now, it's fully supported only under all Oracle infrastructure.
