What is most valuable?

* Good performance : Exalogic is designed especially for Oracle middleware and applications hosted on WebLogic servers or any other application running on the top of… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved the way my organization functions by migrating apps to one consolidated platform that is dedicated to WebLogic and Oracle apps.

What needs improvement?

* EMOC needs more attention and simplification. * The integration with EM cloud manager should be straightforward. * The ZFS interface (BUI) should be simplified. *… more»

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

For pricing and license, you have to pay for Exalogic HW plus elastic cloud software for all cores at all nodes, so it will be expensive, including when upgrading. For… more»

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

We previously used a different solution; we switched to get one platform for WebLogic-based apps.

What other advice do I have?

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… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing, we evaluated other options; normal HW.

What is most valuable?

The ability to have ZFS (shared file systems) with InfiniBand, and an InfiniBand connection to the Exadata database is very useful.

How has it helped my organization?

We used it create a new filesystem, and a stretched cluster with a few simple and quick steps.

What needs improvement?

Whenever there is a problem, opening a service request to get help from Oracle is an endless story. For example, I had problems that I lived with for eight months. The answer that goes out of fashion is "the latest fw", but updating it also… more»

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

The purchasing department chose this solution. Economically speaking, it is probably a cheaper option than others available, but for the technicians who work with this machine, it is fine as long as things are going OK; but every problem… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice is to evaluate other solutions!!!

What is most valuable?

Storage. Strong in data integrity.

How has it helped my organization?

It doesn’t improve the way my organization functions. It has only one feature that improves app performance, but in a specific way. Everything else can be done with any other infrastructure hardware/software.

What needs improvement?

- Management console: Awful to use it, complicated, too many options spread around many menus that don’t make any sense. - Networking: Everything is locked. It doesn’t allow you to change an IP address after creating a VM. - VM template… more»

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

I previously used a different solution. I did not choose this product. I run it for a customer in his environment.

What other advice do I have?

I’d go for this product only if I have a really specific application to run, and it has proven better use with this product. Otherwise, I’d look for anything else.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature I've seen in the Exalogic platform is the integration it has with the Exadata. When I'm running WebLogic based wordloads, that really need low latency to an Exadata for improved input, improved latency, that's the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The benefits is it reduces the latency, reduces the amount of time for the Exalogic to get data from the database on the Exadata. When you're running OLTP applications that are very time sensitive, that's where it really comes in to play… more»

What needs improvement?

There's a lot of additional features I would like to see in the Exalogic. The user interface would be nice to better integrate into Enterprise Manager 13 and eliminate the whole EMOC layer to the Exalogic. That causes a lot of confusion… more»

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

What you really look at on an Exalogic is what's your application and would the benefit of the lower latency when you connect to the Exadata really improve your application to the point that that's the solution you want to go to.

What other advice do I have?

Rating: I'd give Exalogic probably a 7.5. The reason is, the issues with the Emoc system and that integration, that user interface is very different. Also, some of the limitations on the Exalogic. You have to use Oracle's OS load, you can't… more»

What is most valuable?

It's vendor-managed, preconfigured, and engineered. It's important mainly for reducing time and complexity in the setup and first delivery of IT environments.

How has it helped my organization?

It's improved the delivery of virtual machines and setting them up with WebLogic (Application Server).

What needs improvement?

Live Migration of the vServers will be a plus, as well as a more robust EMOC/EL control behavior.

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

We moved our WebLogic Servers from a Linux standard infrastructure to the Exalogic Platform in order to have a single "family" environment.

What other advice do I have?

It can be a good choice if you like to avoid labour in setting up the storage, network and computing. After this, you need to be prepared to rely on your team or the vendor support team because you’re going to face small but frequent… more»
