Oracle SuperCluster Room for Improvement

Oracle Supercluster Consultant at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees

We are not able to upgrade our SuperClass to the latest version, because this solution is more compatible with Oracle. We are not able to run any .NET-based applications and they cannot install Windows. 

The Oracle SuperCluster is specific to Oracle products. They can set up a convergence infrastructure so that you can run both applications, such as Java, non-Java, .NET, and Windows.

The features are limited and we are not able to upgrade this solution. We are not able to integrate our current version with the new, upgraded version.

If they had an application that centralized the administration, not about the monitoring, but for the configuration, it would be better.

We have heard that after the M8 was introduced a couple of years ago, there will be no production.

We are not using the latest version. Our version is a bit old. It's not the latest generation.

They may have made some improvements but based on the version that I am using, it is a little complicated because it is based on the Unix Operating system.

My understanding is that now it is on the Linux Operating System because it is simple to use and more user-friendly. 

The SuperCluster is based on Solaris, which is different than Linux.

They should keep using the Linux Operating System. It's better than Unix. It's easier, more flexible, and used in most of the machines in the world.

Unix is not as easy for the users, it needs more maintenance and costs extra.

In my opinion, the next generation will be Linux-based.

The solution is not very user friendly and that could be improved.
