What is most valuable?

I use Oracle databases with multiple clients mainly for analyzing financial transactions. They use it to find the profit and loss for each and every day of trading activity. Finding out out a single day's profit and loss used to take them almost seven days to calculate. For example, if they wanted to find out something new, they could find the profit and loss of the day's data only by the… more »

What needs improvement?

It could be that we may not be using Oracle and GoldenGate in the way we are supposed to be using them. We have faced a couple of issues with GoldenGate. Whenever we have issues, the Oracle support will take the time to understand how GoldenGate works. The stability of the GoldenGate could be improved, although it is pretty stable. In terms of Database Appliance, the important thing is how you… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Oracle Database Appliance. Oracle is the benchmark in the field. Still, I would recommend you doing a proof of concept with Oracle Database first and then consider the other databases.

What is most valuable?

I think the most valuable part of the Oracle Database Appliance is just the ability to use the database. We make the reports on our own and let Oracle do what it does best.

What needs improvement?

We try to operate through the ODI, or Oracle Data Integrator, to maintain data integration. We have plans to use Visual I/O for data mapping, data flow, and things like that. Oracle could improve the… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There are no additional costs beyond the standard licensing fees.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We started with Oracle. We did not use another product before that.

What other advice do I have?

I think for people interested in using Oracle Appliance the main thing is to rely on Oracle for the bigger stuff that it does. Maybe it cannot provide the kind of reports that we want. This is how we… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

It is not a product we evaluated to use instead of Oracle, but we have some small products we use with it to enhance the functionality and capabilities. For example, we use Hadoop for data modeling… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the performance. Its a pre-configured device and you just plug and play..

How has it helped my organization?

By adding ODA in our infrastructure, it helps to spare time for other Adminstration & Research activities..

What needs improvement?

It has limitations of Storage as well as network connectiivty over 10G Fiber.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Should go wiht ODA , breakup the cost of hardware, setup & Licensing, you will find that ODA is much cheaper than any other solution in terms of setup and operational cost

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to using the appliance, we had our Oracle Database installed on a Dell server. We had some performance issues with the system, which is why we switched.

What other advice do I have?

The Oracle Database Appliance is a product that I recommend. It is really good for small businesses where there are database-intensive applications that need high… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

we had reviewed traditional system configuration like servers attached wiht any SAN storage. But the performance benchmarks we have with ODA is not avavilabe in other… more »

What is most valuable?

The performance of the system is the solution's most valuable aspect. In combination with the database, it gives perfect results. It's a better system than using other kinds of integrated systems. In general, the ODA control is much simpler to use and offers up the best performance.

What needs improvement?

Technical support could be much better. The maintenance for an enterprise system isn't so great. It's also much expensive. A future release should improve the availability of networking interfaces. Hardware expansions availability should be in-line with product support. The solution should have the… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing of the solution is fair but the technical support pricing is quite high.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. It's a very good system.

What is most valuable?

The features that they're providing as skills are the solution's most valuable aspect. The solution is simple to use and easy to maintain.

What needs improvement?

The testing aspect of the solution could be improved. Right now, it's done by us, but if they'd improve it with tools that would make things easier. If we were able to use Oracle Database to create mobile apps, that would be great. I don't know multiple languages, like Java, etc. I need to learn a separate language, right now in order to do this.

What other advice do I have?

I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
