Oracle Exalogic Other Advice

The best thing from my point of view for Exalogic is that it enables you to control Oracle middleware licenses and apps, which are very expensive. It supports a trusted partition policy for licenses, so Exalogic is helping to reduce Oracle MW and apps licenses, as you are licensed only per the physical cores assigned to the VM server only and you can increase the licenses by increments of 2, 4, 6, etc. physical cores. You can not find this feature outside Oracle HW such as Exadata, Exalogic, PCA, etc. For normal physical HW, you have to pay for all cores in the physical sever, even though you might have a small load. For VMware, it will be a big problem and a licensing nightmare, as you have to pay for all of the VMware CPU cores in the cluster, even though you might only be using 4 cores!!!!! It is an unfair policy. Exalogic is not easy for administration. View full review »

I rate this product eight out of 10. After years of stabilization (a lot of known bugs and issues with compute nodes rebooting due to InfiniBand HCAs and driver bugs, etc.) the product has achieved stability as a private cloud appliance. Make sure you align the application and integration architecture with the sizing and the product's distribution. As its virtual datacenter is oriented to the network structure, once the VMs are created with an initial network configuration, it is not possible to change, despite destroying and recreating the VMs. This is acceptable in some cases, as long as the remaining automation process can reset the VMs. View full review »

We use the on-premises deployment model. We're a reseller. The solution is good but is now discontinued, so I would advise others to move to Oracle's Private Cloud Appliance. I'd rate it eight out of ten. View full review »
