Oracle Database Appliance Room for Improvement

Currently in Ghana, where I work, there are just a few companies that can afford it, because the price is a little bit high. Even though for the private sector it's not that high, if this would come in much smaller boxes, and much cheaper, it would be much more affordable for SMBs, that's small and medium businesses. That would be helpful. View full review »

Oracle ODA is a fixed server appliance. It would be improved if it were an engineered system with scale-out capabilities. Virtualization features could also be improved. A web-based GUI would be a good start. Also VM-specific features, which provide VM-level fault tolerancy, could be added to this product. (This improvement would depends on the scale-out capabilities). View full review »

The following issues need some attention: * Ease of administration and deployment. With ODA X6-2 there are different “OAK” administration commands for the S/M/L models (e.g. “odacli”) compared to the HA model ("oakcli"). * In my opinion only one single command should be used for all ODA models, as it’s confusing. * Some of the new commands have limitations/restrictions, though I assume they’ll be improved over time.

The main thing would be to make ODA more affordable, to make it a more economical machine. Also, I would like to see virtualization, so you could implement all of your functions on one machine. Finally, improvement in the speed and performance would be good. View full review »
