Top Seven Thoughts on Exadata X3

with one comment

1. When you only include minimal support, maintenance, and licensing for your own system and include extraneous hardware and software in your competitor’s system, your pricing sure better look better.

2. When you use your own internal testing rather than industry standard benchmarks, you sure better look better.

3. When you compare X3 to X2 rather than to a competitive product, you sure better be showing better performance.

4. If you have an extremely simple query with a small amount of static pre-sorted data, X3 may help you.

5. Make sure you compute the true TCA/TCO in any comparisons.

6. It’s still a closed system.

7. No real data, no real benchmarks, same old story.
