Oracle Exadata

  • First, get the database on Oracle. If you are in an Oracle stack, it would be much better to use the Oracle products. If you are driving a Ferrari, you wouldn’t put a Mercedes engine in it. If you are writing a query, you cannot rely on other brands. Since I'm an architect, when I look for a product, I look for performance.
  • The installation is easy because it comes out-of-the-box and you just start using it.
  • Previous to Oracle Exadata, we were using a normal Oracle RAC service. We were just waiting for this product to come out.
  • I'm currently writing a data warehouse on Exadata. Before this solution, we were aiming for this to be completed by 8 a.m., when our ETLs would finish. With the help of Exadata's special features, this was reduced to 3 a.m. This solution allows us to bring more data within the same time period. It provides us with more subject areas that provide more reports to our users. Our ETL times reduced to 65%, then to 50%.

Teradata Vantage

Teradata is the premier analytic platform. If you need to enable real-time access to multiple terabytes/petabytes of your organization's data to help you make real-time decisions in a way that translates into real dollars in sales and strengthened customer relationships then there is no better choice. Teradata is NOT an OLTP appropriate database and it may not be the best place to process all your data but as far as enabling your Analytic enterprise Teradata is always going to provide the best ROI for medium and large enterprises and now with new cloud integration even small enterprises can have the advantages of Teradata that used to be only available to the larger enterprises.

Cons

Oracle Exadata

  • Patching can often become quite involved and convoluted. It should be more transparent and straightforward.
  • Storage metrics can be difficult and time consuming to obtain.
  • Basic administrative functions can be hard to repair when discovered.
  • Vendor support can take a while to obtain. Generally several attempts are necessary to reach the right area of vendor expertise.

Teradata Vantage

  • Expensive (why go with it when you have similar setup thru big data technologies like Hadoop?)
  • No concept of Unstructured Data; everything is inline to what Oracle provides.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Exadata

Oracle Exadata Database Machine had the best performance overall hands down. It clearly beat the competition and we were seeing 1000X improvement on SAP HANA. Oracle Exadata Database Machine beat that without us refactoring our code. To achieve that in HANA, we had to refactor the code somewhat. Now this was for our limited POC of 5 use cases. Given the large number of stored procedures we had in Sybase, we need to capture more production metrics but we are seeing incredible performance.

Teradata Vantage

Teradata is the leader in Data Warehousing bar none based on independent experts like Gartner and our experience aligns with this.

Return on Investment

Oracle Exadata

  • Single support from a single vendor with both machine and database from Oracle, which is costing us less.
  • With Exadata, we need less technical manpower and less technical support. A business transaction with the integrated and centralized database helps us focus on other business needs.
  • We don't need to buy additional licenses and Hardware for the next 3 to 5 years.
