Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Oracle is always costly but it's fine."
  • "It is an expensive product and you pay more for certain performance enhancements."
  • "All things considered, the price of this product is fairly high, as is always the case with Oracle."
  • "I did note that Oracle does tend to internally oversize things especially if they want to fill up a budget, and hence third-party oversight is essential."
  • "The licensing can be a bit expensive because you need to have certain tools enabled that require them."
  • "The majority of our customers are in government or big enterprises, and the projects that we sell come out to several million USD. With this amount of money on the table, it's always better to have an experienced team of consultants, who know Exadata very well, handle the implementation."
  • "The price of the solution has been expensive to implement."
  • "The cost of the product could be improved."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer: 
    Exadata is a fantastic machine. Two features stand out. The first is the resource input/output management tool that allows you to manage the resources to the neck on the Exadata box.
    Top Answer: 
    When you talk about the pricing, the pricing is on the higher side. That said, if you're looking for good performance, then you definitely need to pay the price. Therefore, the price is reasonable.
    Top Answer: 
    I liked Spark, but it was discontinued when Exadata L6 came back. I loved it, and I wish they would bring back Spark integration.

    Overview

    Oracle Exadata Database Machine is a modern framework, engineered to run databases and to scale database servers. Oracle Exadata Database Machine can be run on the cloud or on premises.

    The main benefit of Exadata is its speed. It hosts operating systems, CPU memory, and hard drives. It runs all types of databases, including online transaction systems, processors, and data warehouses, while remedying the poor performances of older databases.

    Oracle Exadata Database Machine features a simple and fast database storage system that protects and backs up your critical data. It accelerates data warehouse performance for faster access to business information and data. It is the ideal database solution for companies looking to build up their infrastructure from scratch.

    Oracle Exadata Database Machine Key Benefits

    • Rapid, reliable, and scalable deployment: Exadata Database Machine is the most cost-efficient and highest performance platform for running Oracle databases. Exadata’s deployment is very straightforward since the database servers, storage servers, and network are pre-configured, pre-tuned and pre-tested by Oracle experts. This ensures that all your components work seamlessly together. Any Oracle Database application can be seamlessly migrated to and from the Exadata Database Machine, with no changes to the original application.

    • Powerful, cutting-edge hardware: Exadata Database Machine is the most versatile database platform. It uses powerful database servers and a scaled-out, intelligent storage layer.

    • Accelerate database processing: Exadata Storage Server implements a unique, highly efficient database-optimized storage infrastructure that enables Exadata’s unparalleled performance without any of the bottlenecks that traditional storage experiences. Each storage server contains CPU processors that are used to offload database processing. The CPUs in the storage servers do not replace database CPUs, but work alongside them to accelerate database workloads.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Oracle Exadata Database Machine stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its robust performance and its wide variety of database features that make it a comprehensive database solution.

    Adriano S., an IT system integrator at a financial services firm, writes, "Oracle Exadata's performance is one of its best features. We are very satisfied with it. The previous equipment used to make a payment for all the government employees used to take at least two days for some of the transactions. Now, it will take hours to make the same amount of payments. Another thing is the flexibility to organize all our databases. We can use it with new features that come with this version of Oracle 19c, which is the container database. With container databases, we can work with many databases, organized, and segregated, and still access the functions and management, the things that most of the technical people like to have in place."

    Paulo X., a sales manager at LTA-RH Informatica, notes, "Regarding features, there are so many that we can offer to customers. When we sell Exadata Cloud, there are many options to choose from, especially when it comes to enterprise database options. In my experience, the main features that are appreciated are various ones like GPS and the assortment of security options."

    SAP® IQ software delivers speed and power for extreme-scale enterprise data warehousing and analytics. Its column-oriented, grid-based massively parallel processing (MPP) architecture and patented data compression and indexing technologies enable companies to exploit the value of huge amounts of data at the speed of business.
