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.

IBM AIX and HP-UX implementations of Oracle database solutions have a lot of performance issues. Both do not provide as much robust configuration customization as Exadata. Hardware support is limited. There is generally a long delay between hardware update being certified with the latest Oracle database patch sets and major releases. Storage technology in-house to IBM and HP is inferior to Oracle Exadata machines.

IBM POWER System is a general purpose hardware optimize to runs various software with high-performance resource intensive operations. On the other hand, Oracle Exadata Database Machine is specifically engineered to run Oracle Database software efficiently, this combination of hardware and software which specifically tuned to run with each other, provides fastest possible platform to run Oracle Databases. By using IBM POWER one might safe considerable amount from cost of system acquisition and licensing, however having different vendor to manage can introduce more cost and complexity especially when the time comes to increase capacity.

We have done a proof of concept for both and have seen a lift with our batch processing and all other aspects with Oracle Exadata. Oracle Exadata storage servers have been playing a key role with the overall success compared to other products.

We selected it just from a performance perspective, and that the ROI with the Oracle Exadata Database Machine is bigger than other machines. You can run with it for at least 5 years.

I do not think there is any alternative for Exadata. Flash storage or SSD can not solve the IO bottleneck issues the way Exadata handles the IO subsystem.
