What do you like best?

I love how well Exadata Cloud performs. We are able to process significantly more data than when we were just on Oracle RAC. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The service is okay, EXCEPT when we have support requests. Even though we're on an older version of Oracle (12.2), we continue to find bugs in the platform. The timeliness for resolving these bugs leaves much to be desired. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a developer on the World of Warcraft development team, we need to support an increasing number of players attempting to get into our game. In fact, most realm capacity issues are a direct result of limited database hardware resources. By using Exadata, we are increasing that throughput significantly.

What do you like best?

Exadata is what we use as our hardware platform with supper fast performance. We run peoplesoft and many other application and data retrieval and compliance tools (like OMT, BI tools) The hardware is dependable and is well supported by Oracle. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Exadata is an expense and is required to run peoplesoft and we are tied into using this hardware platform. One of the other issue is we are required to upgrade this hardware many every three years, that adds to the cost of operating our system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is expensive to operate and we are dependent on Oracle to keep supporting the hardware. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We were able to consolidate numerous servers and database onto the Exadata platform with massive consolidation and great performance for mixed workloads. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I am unable to use advanced feature due to having to license so many cores with Exadata. Platinum patching is inconsistent and more time consuming than we would like. We do rolling, hybrid and non-rolling patching but seem unable to achieve minimum down times desired. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Moving to Exadata some previous performance problems that we were unable to get to were masked/resolved by migrating to Exadata. Were were able to lower our license counts as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It's easy to use. For staff who knows on prem database, it's not hard for them to pick up ExaData. Our enterprise project has been using Oracle DB for nearly 3 years now, now we are moving to ExaData Cloud service (ExaData) in OCI. We are running DB 12.1 now, moving to 12.2 and then to 18c soon. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The migration of on prem database to Exadata can be tricky. The upgrade/patch on ExaData strategy is also not necessary the same as on-prem DB, like the PSU. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
