A reliable, versatile solution that offers great value and proven performance

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for backing up and storing banking and financial data. It is especially important for protecting data mirroring between multiple data centers using a hybrid cloud type approach. We have our own cases for what we use but we do like the input we get from the manufacturers and their suggestions on how we should deploy things.

Pros and Cons

  • "A valuable feature of the FlexPod solution is that it is all one architecture and I can call one number and get support for Cisco and NetApp without having to jump through open TAC (Technical Assistance Center) cases and do multiple things to get issues addressed."
  • "The upgrade process needs to be improved and it would be nice to manage everything from a single pane of glass."

What other advice do I have?

We have found that the solution simplifies infrastructure from edge to core to cloud — although we have not really implemented the cloud yet. The solution has made our staff more efficient and enables them to spend more time driving the business forward. It's primarily what we do. We don't really have other tasks.

Good performance and stability with a straightforward setup

What is our primary use case?

We currently use Exalogic for SAP solutions. We also use their Exadata solution for the data warehouse for the Oracle database.

Pros and Cons

  • "The main benefit of using the solution is for the performance it provides."
  • "The solution needs to add a network virtualization feature similar to that of VxRail. If they could implement that, it would be great for the product."

What other advice do I have?

We're an Oracle partner. Typically we implement this solution on a large scale to enterprise-level clients. Typical customers might be big banks in Bangladesh. I'd recommend the solution, but there are other options that give a client more flexibility. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
