Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Oracle Exadata Express Cloud Service.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The customer's default choice is the on-premise version of this solution. Only when Oracle or the partners like us, can explain to customers the cloud value proposition, and if the compliance authorities allow, they can look into this cloud solution. It will take some time for Oracle to change its perception of customers' de-facto standards. Exadata used to be treated as a black box, which is not the case now. The customer is aware of what is happening inside, how the configurations have been made, and what patching has been applied. Oracle needs to market the cloud version better. In the future release, if large enterprise customers are running this solution they should have OCI, PaaS, and SaaS all combined together. This would allow them to have the security of all three. Then the various departments can provision as per what meetd their requirement.
The solution's pricing could be improved. I would like to be able to integrate Oracle GoldenGate into this solution, which is something not we're not allowed to do. I would like to see this changed, if possible.
