Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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.""The database is solid.""The solution is pretty automated, which takes out the possibility of human error.""The Oracle database is able to get the data, process it, and return it to the company's CEO's and CFO's within a single day, and thus they are able to find out yesterday's P and L by today. It has drastically reduced the amount and time of processing from seven days to one day.""The most valuable feature is the performance."

"It's super easy to deploy and it also supports different languages and analytics.""Pivotal Greenplum's shared-nothing architecture.""The parallel load features mean that Greenplum is capable of high-volume data loading in parallel to all of the cluster segments, which is really valuable."

Cons
"In terms of what can be be improved, I'd say Artificial Intelligence, AI. It would be really helpful if AI was incorporated within the solution.""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.""We would like the ability to add more storage without having to upgrade to Oracle Exadata.""The product is quite complex to set up, initially. It would be ideal if it was simpler.""Oracle could improve its capacity for built-in visualization."

More Oracle Database Appliance Cons →

"They should add more analytics. Their documentation could also be improved so that I don't have to bother my co-workers and tech support so often.""Initial setup is a little complex. It took around two weeks to deploy.""The initial setup is somewhat complex and the out-of-the-box configuration requires optimization."
