Anytime RAC/clustered database technology is needed.
We had 9 Oracle databases on different Hardware machines, we merged all those databases into a single Exadata, and today we are having higher performance than before. It is not very appropriate for customers who have a very small database, and users below 25.
It is a question of pricing. Oracle Exadata is a big machine which is not suitable for SMBs. I recommend more sparse server or Oracle Database appliance for SMBs. Enterprise companies have much more data to run, so need better performance.
In most of the cases, you can start with an entry-level machine and upgrade. But once you use Oracle Exadata Database Machine you cannot move to another machine. This is one of the best in the market. Exadata in the cloud is also a great solution.
- 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%.
- Improved performance.
