Exadata can significantly improve performance but there's a learning curve in a few key areas.
We primarily run OLTP with some reporting. With that being said, the feature that provides us the most performance gains is the Smart Flash Cache for the OLTP databases. The "offloading" capabilities provide the biggest performance gains for Reporting such as smart scans and storage indexes. There is a new security feature which allows disabling ssh to the storage servers which will make my security folks very happy. Also, there is a STIG script for hardening storage servers and Database Nodes which can be implemented as a report only or actually implement security settings. Would advise running report first to assess the results and then manually modify, as needed.

Quotes from Members

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

Pros

"Complete management occurs from one single address instead of different servers."
"On-premises Exadata is just as stable as the cloud version. It's a very stable platform."
"Backup/Restore performance: Fast backups, fast restores (especially useful for creating clone environments)."
"Oracle Exadata is stable."
"Exadata with the In-Memory option is several levels about SAP HANA."
"The most valuable feature of Oracle Exadata is the integration with other solutions, such as SAN storage and shared VLAN network."
"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."
"The performance of the data is the most important part."
"Intelliflex is very scalable. In fact, scalability has improved 100 times by Intelliflex, in my personal opinion."
"IntelliFlex is easy to scale - one of its best features is that you can upscale it to the size you want."
"The product's scalability is great. Scalability-wise, I rate the solution a ten out of ten."
"It is very stable. It's 100% uptime. Speed and resilience are one of the greatest features of this product. In almost twenty years we've never had downtime, except for outages for patches and upgrades. We've never had a system failure in twenty years."
"The solution's banking model, called FSLDM (Financial Services Logical Data Model), is sophisticated and good."
 

Cons

"The scalability can be improved as it is not a parallel execution."
"Checking the Smart Scan issues is complicated."
"Since the product is an appliance, it is very costly."
"The solution's pricing is very high."
"The performance could be improved."
"The integration with third-party applications regarding access management security could be better."
"The setup is a little bit complex. We would like to see the installation part get easier."
"Patching must be simplified."
"The reporting side wasn't very good in the past, but with the latest versions, it's getting better. Still, the friendliness of the PDC reporting and functionality needs to be improved."
"The initial setup is complex because there are a lot of factors that come into play, including the amount of software and applications that require access."
"The only issue our company has with Teradata IntelliFlex is that it is not cost-effective because of the way the product has been designed."
"The solution’s pricing, scalability, and technical support response time could be improved."
"They should add more connectors to different platforms."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The price of Oracle Exadata is competitive. There are some features that are outside of the initial purchase license, such as some monitoring packages."
"You have to pay for the storage and the database in Oracle Exadata. It cost a lot, but it is worth it. It would be a benefit if we could reduce the price for the number of CPUs and extend the memory."
"It is an expensive product and you pay more for certain performance enhancements."
"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."
"All things considered, the price of this product is fairly high, as is always the case with Oracle."
"The price of Oracle Exadata is expensive. It is not competitive with other solutions some of the times."
"The solution’s cost is a little bit more than the traditional databases."
"The price is very high."
"Users have to pay a yearly licensing fee for Teradata IntelliFlex, which is very expensive."
