Dell EMC VxBlock System

Dell EMC VxBlock System is well suited for well-defined on-premise processing requirements. Dell EMC VxBlock System's scalability allows it to grow it along to accommodate growing project requirements. High initial investment makes Dell EMC VxBlock System less appropriate for unknown growth prospects projects. It is also important to remember that there are no scale down capabilities provided, just as in any other on-premise solution.

Oracle Exalogic

Oracle Exalogic in conjunction with an Oracle Exadata based platform is what I would consider the best of breed solution; however the performance may be overkill for what you need. Don't spend the money unless you need the performance, Oracle offers other solutions at a much lower cost. Purchase what you need not what's the shiny new product.

Pros

Dell EMC VxBlock System

  • Storage
  • Networking
  • Compute
  • Management
Paul Lerner | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Exalogic

  • Private Cloud: in the virtual configuration, you can create several accounts and assign different resources (vCPU, RAM, etc.) to several departments in your organization.
  • SDP & Infiband: Oracle Exalogic can be connected to Oracle Exadata using Infiniband Fabric, to take advantage of high bandwidth and low latency network to connect Weblogic to Oracle Database.
  • Standardization: Oracle Weblogic Server running on Oracle Exalogic is the same software running on a normal Linux machine, so you can easily move Java applications without changing it, and immediately benefit from the Exalogic Optimizations.

Cons

Dell EMC VxBlock System

  • Unified upgrade process
  • VMware VSphere integration
  • Vision application scriptability
Paul Lerner | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Exalogic

  • Currently, the management of Exalogic is a little arcane. There is a good chance that Oracle can bring flexibility into the control stack because we have seen changes with each version of the software Echo was an improvement and foxtrot even more so. The ability to easily change VM shapes was another welcome change.
  • Again the fact arises that to build a very high performance machine there will be idiosyncrasies and a certain amount of retraining may be required. I think this is one area where Exalogic lacks not as a product but as a solution is that there isn't as much good knowledge available about it as there is for other engineered systems.
  • The Exalogic default setup could do with an SSD storage option, currently the onboard comes with a spinning disk.

Oracle Exalogic 8.0
Based on 1 answer
It is a very condensed version of what used to be rows of servers. I like that storage, networking and compute nodes fit in one rack. The power and the software are top notch. The only problem is cost. You need to do some serious processing to get the true value out of the Exalogic system.

Oracle Exalogic

It's hard to compare Oracle Exalogic Engineered Systems with anything else on the market. It's so purpose built for application performance and intended to be used in conjunction with other Oracle Engineered Systems. As I alluded to earlier in this review the cost may not be worth the investment if the performance isn't needed. Oracle offers other solutions like the Oracle PCA which will meet the need for licensing compliance at a much lower cost of ownership and may fit better into your current infrastructure.
