- Performance of queries has increased
- Unfortunately Exadata can be extremely high cost, especially for the higher tiered levels of support.
- It does well in needed only a few machines to build and support hundreds of discrete databases.
- Patching can be burdensome and negate cost savings as the time lost can be considerable.
- 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.
- We have one database job that takes two days to run, but when we migrated to Oracle Exadata Database Machine the job now just takes 7 hours.
- Using Oracle Database Machine to run Oracle Database definitely increase performance and save time in operations which intensively use database.
- Capability to migrate to cloud is a deciding factor in terms of cost saving
- The ability to serve mix workloads of OLAP and OLTP provides a one stop solution.
- Increased uptime.
- Improved performance.
- Support for more Oracle Applications.

- Wish it could connect with other devices.
- Tons - including less stress, faster turnaround for deployments - up to 40% saved time for my team.

- Unified control - we can manage the database top to bottom. We don't have to have multiple teams managing this, one team can do everything.
- Improved database response time greatly helped the supply chain process.
- We save time on database refreshes using sparse clone, and developers/testers can get a copy of the database very quickly.
- It saves time and money when you are running all your databases on it.
- You can reduce your cost with other machines as you can implement all your environment into it.

- Customers don't have to wait longer to get reports
- We did encounter some maintenance issues with higher parts costs. For example we had numerous server fans die and it costs like $400 per fan for the same server fans it seems as any server that costs like $30.
- You must train your Oracle DBAs for Exadata. It is not just simply an Oracle database with some minor extras. To best leverage its capabilities and to successfully manage Exadata you need about 3-4 weeks of special training (even for long time Oracle experts).
- Exadata updates are a little more complicated and take extra planning.
