We performed a comparison between Microsoft Parallel Data Warehouse and Oracle Database Appliance based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Data Warehouse solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"We have complete control over our data."
"The solution has been reliable."
"I like Data Warehouse's data integrity features. Data integrity is what databases are made for as opposed to spreadsheets."
"The initial setup was straightforward and quick - I was able to configure everything within an hour."
"If the database goes down on one of the servers, the load is automatically shifted to another server. You can troubleshoot the one that is down without affecting uptime."
"Oracle Database Appliance is a stable solution. We have clients that have been running it for 10 years."
"Oracle has good technical support."
"The most valuable feature of Oracle Database Appliance is the ease of management."
"The product is very light."
"I would like the ability to do more real-time type updates instead of batch-oriented updates."
"The query is slow if we don't optimize it."
"We'd like to see it be a bit more compatible with other solutions."
"Even though the solution can handle a lot of data, it's just too expensive currently."
"I would like it if the scalability could be increased without having to change versions."
"The license cost could be cheaper, especially for long-term contracts."
"Oracle Database Appliance could improve by having better integration."
"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."
"Oracle Database Appliance is stopping support for the standard edition and only continuing support for the RAC One Node. They did not inform us and we are having problems with our customers. We are not having to change our systems from standard to something else."
The traditional structured relational data warehouse was never designed to handle the volume of exponential data growth, the variety of semi-structured and unstructured data types, or the velocity of real time data processing. Microsoft's SQL Server data warehouse solution integrates your traditional data warehouse with non-relational data and it can handle data of all sizes and types, with real-time performance.
Oracle Database Appliance is the easiest and most affordable way for small or medium-size organizations to run Oracle databases and applications and is an ideal platform for remote and edge computing environments. Customers reduce Oracle Database deployment times and management workloads using a prebuilt integrated system with management automation. As demonstrated in IDC’s business value study (PDF), Oracle Database Appliance lets customers grow revenue and control costs, delivering up to a 498% return on investment (ROI) over five years.
