If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Oracle Database Appliance, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. It's a very good system.
My advice would depend on the needs of the company. If the need is like ours, number of transactions per day, number of transactions per year; and whether the operation time is 24 hours, eight hours; these are the types of things to consider when deciding. Also, what is the downtime you can afford? ODA performance has been very good for our requirements. I would rate it at eight out of 10 because the product is stable, it has very low downtime, and the support of Oracle is very good.
