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.

For SMB file storage Exablox is great, but as an ESXi datastore it still needs work.

Pros

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.

  • Exablox is simple to setup and relatively easy to use.
  • Exablox is priced very competitively and is a good value for the cost.
  • Exablox has good customer service.

Cons

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.

  • Exablox is still in its infancy as a company and in some respects the product feels like a version 1.0.
  • Integration with VMware ESXi has some bugs that need to be figured out.

The price for Exablox was very appealing. If we can resolve the NFS datastore issues we are seeing in VMware, this is a perfect solution for a ESXi datastore. Once that issue is resolved, I will give Exablox a higher rating.

Since the day we installed Exablox we have not had any down-time. The storage resources have been available 100% of the time.

SMB file access has been very responsive. We have not seen any slowness. Also, in using Exablox as tier 1 storage in our VMware environment, the VMs performed great. No slowness issues.

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.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Exablox was much less expensive than other storage arrays and I think there are a lot of reasons to purchase them. I believe that as the product matures, it will be a great option for storage.

We have not tried to scale Exablox so we are not familiar with this.

Return on Investment

Oracle Exalogic

  • Increase stability and performance of Weblogic Server applications.
  • Platinum Support: the patching process is simplified because storage/firmware/OS/binaries are patched in the same time by the same vendor.
  • Cost savings for hardware maintenance.
Simone Traversari | TrustRadius Reviewer

StorageCraft OneXafe

  • We purchased Exablox specifically for our ESXi environment, so we are hoping to get the wrinkles worked out to see a greater return on our investment.
