Cons
"The performance isn't as good as, for example, Nimble.""Dell EqualLogic PS series could improve the performance because in our hybrid configuration the read speed is faster than the write speed.""We need more space and we can't get any.""It is at the end of support and no longer supported. We have to move our VMware to another storage platform, and we have decided to use Dell PowerStore. We like Dell's products, and it is a new platform with a lot of features.""If I need to have more space or more capacity, I need to replace the product. It would be ideal if we could scale without replacing the box itself.""The solution is out of date and the new version has a lot of advanced features."

"The main thing Oracle can improve is the cost. It would be better if Oracle opened up the system to enable integration with other vendors. Whether it's the database, application server, or storage appliance, they should make it easy to integrate them. They need to open up more to ensure that it can work in any environment and IT ecosystem."
