Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Oracle SuperCluster.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The solution is not very user friendly and that could be improved.
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.
I would like to see control domain and zone management via a management console, similar to that of OVM.
How does hyper-converged differ from converged?
Is one better than the other? When would one choose converged, rather than hyper-converged?
Are there pros and cons to each type of solution?
