Virtualization needs improvement. It's not easy to back up the virtual machines in the Oracle VM architecture. I would also like to see native support for Veeam Backup Software.

There aren't really any features that the solution is lacking. The product is quite complex to set up, initially. It would be ideal if it was simpler. Any limitations within the solution are case by case. The solution may work for some, but it isn't for everyone. The product is still evolving. It could still, for example, be more user-friendly. It's not quite perfect yet.

We try to operate through the ODI, or Oracle Data Integrator, to maintain data integration. We have plans to use Visual I/O for data mapping, data flow, and things like that. Oracle could improve the capabilities for visualizing without other, third-party tools. But it is OK. We are not looking for any new features in the product. Whatever additional utility we need we have been able to do using Hadoop for now. For us, the product can stay the same. The only way it can improve is by doing even better with integrations to other products like Hadoop.

It could be that we may not be using Oracle and GoldenGate in the way we are supposed to be using them. We have faced a couple of issues with GoldenGate. Whenever we have issues, the Oracle support will take the time to understand how GoldenGate works. The stability of the GoldenGate could be improved, although it is pretty stable. In terms of Database Appliance, the important thing is how you design it. If the underlying design is good, then Oracle will perform exactly how we want it to perform. But if the underlying design or the underlying architecture is bad, then Oracle is not going to give the expert the results he needs. It all depends upon the developer who designs it. I haven't seen any drawback with the Oracle database assets, and for the past five years I've been using it in our team. In terms of what can be improved, I'd say Artificial Intelligence, AI. It would be really helpful if AI was incorporated into the solution. On a scale of one to ten, I would rate Oracle Database Appliance an eight.

The testing aspect of the solution could be improved. Right now, it's done by us, but if they'd improve it with tools that would make things easier. If we were able to use Oracle Database to create mobile apps, that would be great. I don't know multiple languages, like Java, etc. I need to learn a separate language, right now in order to do this.

Technical support could be much better. The maintenance for an enterprise system isn't so great. It's also much expensive. A future release should improve the availability of networking interfaces. Hardware expansions availability should be in-line with product support. The solution should have the ability to offer an integrated management dashboard with virtualized systems and oracle DB manager in all DB supported versions. The machine should have a visual monitoring interface, not also for hardware but also to DB and virtualized hosts.

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.
