Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"The deployment of our solution across a number of servers using Ingres .NET has meant that we can protect the database server behind a highly secure firewall and deploy the front end solutions on a normal web server."
"We value the appliance architecture with its “everything-in-a-box” highly standardized setup."
"The solution is pretty automated, which takes out the possibility of human error."
"The most valuable features of the solution revolve around its performance, simplicity, and its installation phase."
"Oracle has good technical support."
"The main feature is the management and manageability of the tool. We can create a VM on a laptop within a couple of clicks."
"The product is excellent. It is simple and reliable in terms of installation and maintenance."
"I give it a nine out of 10 because it gives the customer easy access to a complete database solution within 30 minutes."
"Oracle is a stable database."


"The ability to reset the log file without stopping the DBMS would be helpful for us."
"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."
"Oracle's product support is an area of concern where improvements are required."
"In my opinion only one single command should be used for all ODA models, as it’s confusing."
"Oracle Database Appliance patching comes out two to three months after the regular patching cycle."
"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."
"Sometimes, we cannot upgrade or patch it easily. The performance needs to improve."
"They could incorporate a more secure and internet-centric management system for the platform."
"We would like the ability to add more storage without having to upgrade to Oracle Exadata."
